What were once Victorian bothies (where the estate’s gardeners lived) have been transformed into eight king-size bedrooms with en suites featuring roll-top baths and powerful showers plus a vaulted ceiling central dining hall bookended by French limestone fireplaces. Step through the wall into three elegant glasshouses inspired by the neoclassical designs of the celebrated architect Sir John Soane within the estate’s original flower and vegetable garden. In the kitchen, the largest of the three glasshouses, think underfloor heating, wine fridges and comfy sofas. Get competitive in the games room with pool, table tennis and table football or relax on deep sofas after dinner in the cinema and watch a film on the giant screen.
