Splendour & classical beauty

Manderston is without doubt Scotland’s finest example of Edwardian craftsmanship. The brief for architect John Kinross was that it should be large enough for an army of servants necessary for Edwardian comfort and grand enough for entertaining. And entertaining it can most certainly manage with aplomb whether it’s a grand corporate event or wedding.


With Italian chandeliers in the grand ballroom, a drawing room with secret hidden passage and a silver staircase, it is hard not to fall instantly for Manderston’s charms.

Lord and Lady Palmer’s wonderful home has a wide range of sumptuous spaces suitable for both intimate get togethers as well as grander, more formal events. Outside, guests are free to wander through the formal garden terraces filled with roses and rhododendrons or take a stroll around the lake with its 18th century Chinese bridge. Lord Palmer has brought the house into the 21st century and those staying overnight will discover that every bedroom has its own elegant character whilst offering a high degree of luxury.


Easily accessible by car from Edinburgh, Newcastle and the major border towns.
