We held our wedding there Saturday 9th July 2022 after 2 previous postponements. Honestly from start to finish the staff were friendly the management were very accommodating everyone bent over backwards nothing was a problem.. We had the most amazing outside service and everything went to plan.. I stayed the night before also along with some of our guests.. The food was amazing full of flavour and always fresh.. Even the breakfast the following morning was stuffing.. We will definitely be back for overnight stays.. Thank you once again Mr & Mr Campbell Lawrence x

We were at a family wedding yesterday
We were at a family wedding yesterday. My wee girl was a bridesmaid and I was so anxious as she has autism and sometimes doesn't cope well. The staff were aware of this and wow they could not have done or offered enough help and support if we needed it. Absolutely outstanding service. Thank you x

Went here for a wedding and it was just fab. The staff were so nice and couldn't have been more helpful. The garden is just lovely - a nice wee sun trap and the food was delicious (and plentiful) thanks so much for a great stay and a cracking wedding.- . Rachel Heys
