Since opening a couple of years ago, Douneside House, the luxury boutique hotel near Tarland, has gathered a host of awards and accolades. As well as having one of the Scotland’s finest three AA rosette restaurants, under the guidance of head chef David Butters, it has become a sought after exclusive use wedding venue.
We’re giving you the chance to sample the delights of Douneside for yourself, with an overnight stay, dinner and breakfast for two up for grabs. There will even be a bottle of prosecco to welcome our winner.
Douneside offers thirteen classically designed bedrooms in the main house, as well as dog friendly apartments and cottages in the grounds. You can check into your fabulous room before heading to Douneside’s health club or just exploring the beautiful estate gardens, complete with streams, ponds and charming summer houses. The hotel’s setting on Royal Deeside means a host of picturesque villages and stunning scenery are within easy reach if you want to venture further afield.
As Douneside is owned by The MacRobert Trust, a charitable trust based near Aboyne, all of Douneside’s profits go to charity. The setting, outstanding facilities and attention to every detail have made Douneside one of the leading, luxury small country houses in Scotland.
Dinner at Douneside is always special, so you’re in for a treat. The seasonal menu is fantastic, not least because Douneside grows over eighty types of organic fruit and vegetables in the kitchen garden, including many unusual varieties you won’t find elsewhere and the wine list is equally fascinating.
Whether you’re looking for a night or two away, or the perfect venue for an intimate wedding, Douneside House offers the luxury venue.
