Dry January? Maybe not at this house…

As we are located in Scotland, we couldn’t possibly commit to a Dry January with Burns Night coming up! And we know where we will be celebrating it! Apart from having a party in our impressive Billiards Room, we will be having a few glasses of Champagne and Drams of Whiskey in our opulent Champagne Room.


Once upon a time – this room was the gentlemen’s toilets (back when Castleton House was a hotel)! When we got into the house, we thought long and hard about what to create in this space. We thought about opening it through to our Billiards Room or keeping it as storage, but luckily we finally decided to bring an elegant Bar to the house!

We have created a sumptuous room to retreat into for a decadent evening. To create this room we designed an intimate and bespoke area, deciding to use dark tones, quirky decorations, unique lighting, antique furniture and statement pieces.


Central to the room is a glittering chandelier which distributes the light in the room impeccably, ensuring that our sparkling Mathew Williamson wallpaper can be enjoyed at its best! The wallpaper is spectacular, it glistens and draws a lot of attention, we definitely think it has the WOW factor!

We firmly believe that to make an impact, you have to make a bold statement, hence our fabulous wallpaper. But…we also believe you make an impact with the finer details and decorative touches in a room. For this room we have an eclectic mix of furniture and decorations. Our gold side tables with little birds add a feminine and softer touch whilst still being opulent and attractive. We have added cheeky ornaments such as our beloved cupid who sits proud on our turquoise bar cabinet and we have furnished the room with large ice buckets for our guests enjoyment.


Whilst we still have a few pictures to hang to finish the space off, we hope that you will agree that this is a room worth celebrating in! We open our doors later this year, so be sure to think about us for Burns Night 2020!



Its beginning to look at lot like Christmas…

Here at Castleton House, there is nothing we LOVE more than Christmas! And we are super excited that the house has come such a long way from the day we picked up the keys earlier this year!


Over the past few months we have been working hard to get the house ready for Christmas Day, a target which we are so pleased to have met. The interiors have been painted and decorated with fabulous wallpapers and colours, we have installed new flooring throughout and curtains have been hung, making this grand house a truly spectacular home. Perhaps one of the biggest projects, which is still under construction, is this installation of a spectacular three-room kitchen and breakfast area. Whilst it is almost done, and we can cook our Christmas Dinner in it, we are hoping that Santa will remember us in January and deliver our bespoke Quartz island worktop to finish it all off! Then all will be revealed!

We had so much fun decorating this year, knowing what has been achieved and we all feel such joy in seeing it all come together! So we have decked the halls with holly and a fairy light or two…! And we are getting ready to for our first Christmas and New Year in this beautiful house.


So whilst Castleton House is only hosting family and friends this year, we are looking forward to welcoming guests in the years to come. We will be opening our doors next year, so fingers at the ready to book into our Winter Wonderland this time next year.



Even with our excitement at opening in the next year, we still have a lot of work to finish. Next we move on to the gardens, bathrooms, cottage and gym area. So stay tuned as we will be sharing our room transformations & much more in the weeks and months to come.

Wishing everyone a very

Merry Christmas

from us at all

Castleton House 


Dining Room Under Construction…

As we get closer and closer to Christmas the house is really taking shape.  Our mission to create a blank canvas is almost complete in all the bedrooms & our new flooring has been laid throughout – so we are feeling excited!

The flooring has probably been one of our main transforming factors alongside a fresh lick of paint and some fabulous wallpapers. Whittons Flooring helped us with the mammoth task, which proved tricky in parts!


Once the original floor was all fixed up with a lot of TLC from Paul & his team from Murray Pennycook, Whittons were then able to finish it off with a good layer of screed before laying our new Herringbone Amitco flooring.


We have finally ended up with this stunning floor!


So, when we were thinking about the dining experience you should have when you come to Castleton House, we envisaged something special and opulent, whilst still feeling comfortable and intimate. To achieve this in a room so large, we decided we needed to make our statement with our wallpaper, decoration & furnishings. No holding back. So we chose this beautiful wallpaper from Harlequin in Meadow Grass  which has truly made this space incredible.



With curtains, chairs, furniture and brand new stoves to be fitted in the next two weeks we simply can’t wait to show off this space when it is finished! Stay tuned for the unveiling!

The Billiard Room

The billiard room will be one of our first rooms to be fully renovated.  We are using classic grey tones throughout our house and have chosen a fabulous tartan and wood floor to bring everything together.  Alongside our new billiard table, which will arrive in a few weeks and with our Timothy Oulton bar on order, we simply can’t wait to host a party or two over the festive season coming!
