REGENCY MANSION

Photos and Description of this 10 bedroom holiday home in Fraserburgh - Regency Mansion

Sleeps 24, 10 bedrooms

'The elegance of a bygone era, blended with the best of today’s living.' That may be a grandiose claim, but the house leaves visitors inspired and enthused, relaxed and invigorated. The Regency Mansion is large with 10 bedrooms in the main house (and two bedrooms available separately) but it is never overwhelming.

The reception rooms, with their delicate cornicing, their original fireplaces and their enormous windows, are both elegant and comfortable. The gorgeous, interior designed bedrooms all lead on to an atrium bathed in light from a glass cupola above, and the grounds are the ideal place for true relaxation. What more could a guest ask for, to live like a Laird?

Regency Mansion sleeps 24 people in the main house but on the lower ground floor there are another two triple bedrooms plus a kitchen/sitting room, that allow up to 30 people to sleep in the house (at additional cost). The house is set within five acres of lawns and woodland.

Regency Mansion is only ever rented on an exclusive basis, so you know that your party will be the only ones there ensuring total privacy.

The main house sleeps 24, with 8 individually designed double bedrooms, and 2 family suites. All but one of the bedrooms has an en-suite or private bathroom. The bedrooms with their luxury fabrics, designer rugs and high ceilings, give a sense of tranquillity and space. The house also has 4 elegant reception rooms – a large drawing room with the original marble fireplace, a similarly spacious dining room with Regency wallpaper and cream drapes; a study to while away the hours with a good book and the homely ??Red Room” which is a favourite for an after-dinner tipple.

There is also a large home cinema with comfy sofas and a table tennis room for the more energetic. For the more sedentary we have a selection of board games and chess and a TV for those who may fancy watching something other than the cinema. The large modern kitchen has a solid oak table where guests often congregate. It is well equipped, with two hobs, two sinks, three ovens, two dishwashers etc.

For particularly large parties two extra triple en-suite bedrooms plus their own kitchen/sitting room are available at extra cost. With this accommodation, the house sleeps 30 people.

The house has grounds of 5 acres. Within that, there's something for everyone. In front of the house is a large, elegant lawn, ideal for sunbathing. In early summer the lawn is surrounded on all sides by rhododendrons of pink and purple. To the side of a house is a 'hidden-away' enclosed garden - perfect for total peace and quiet. If the weather's particularly good, there's an elegant small patio for taking meals outside. It is not unusual to spot deer, badgers, buzzards and foxes.

For those with more energy, there is a lovely walk through the woods, leading down through the wild flowers to a bubbling brook. If you'd like to remain nearer the house, there's croquet, and a giant chess set for playing outside. Children seem to love the outside space. There is a large lawn outside the house, ideal for running about, but there are also specific areas for children - a small adventure circuit and swings hanging from the trees - one for toddlers and a tyre for larger, braver children!

Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word.

Location

Location

Fraserburgh beach is just 5 minutes drive from the house up the A90. It forms a 3 mile crescent of golden sand. The beach is said to be one of the finest in Scotland.

The North east corner of Scotland is a paradise for golf lovers. Within a half hour drive of Cortes House there are several golf courses, including the Royal Tarlair at Macduff and the internationally renowned Cruden Bay course. For tailor made luxury golf packages, we recommend Golf Vacation Scotland.

Just up the road there is a fabulous disused railway track (the Formartine and Buchan Way). The last passenger train ran on the 4th October 1965. It stretches for 50 miles from Aberdeen to Fraserburgh and makes an ideal cycle track. It passes by fields of sheep and cows with distant views of the sea. A particularly good choice for cycling with children. Bikes can be hired from the Waterside Inn at Peterhead.

The beaches and cycle track provide lovely opportunities for walks, but you can stay within the grounds and still enjoy a walk through the woodlands.

There is a lovely 2-3 hour trip you can take from Macduff, 20 minutes away. You sail with skipper John along the coast towards Pennan, passing pretty seaside villages, or cruise west towards Inverness. On the occasion that we took the trip in May, we saw 20+ seals, puffins, a breeding colony of guillemots and a porpoise.

The area is a favourite with archaeologists with many stone circles dating back to prehistoric times. The nearest is at Memsie (2 miles away). This great cairn of bare stones (24 metres in diameter and 4 metres high) is the sole survivor of 3 huge cairns. Another example can be seen at Strichen where the circle apparently dates back to the second millennium BC.

Aden Country Park - Explore the unique story of farming and life on a country estate in north east Scotland over the past 200 years. Pitmedden Gardens - glorious formal gardens dating back to 1675. Pennan - a picturesque village nestling at the foot of steep cliffs. The film 'Local Hero' was filmed here in 1983. Bizarre fact - the telephone box used in the film is now a historic monument! Banff (20 miles away) - famous as the best preserved 17th/18th century town in Scotland.

We are about half an hour away from the famous whisky trail. The nearest distilleries are the Strathisla at Keith or the world famous Glenfiddich at Dufftown. In total there are seven distilleries to discover.

The castle trail in Aberdeenshire brings together 13 of the world's most unique castles. There is a clearly signposted tourist trail which will take you from castle to castle, taking in the romance of Craigevar to the grandeur of Kildrummy Castle.

Amazingly, it has recently come to light that the ancestors of Elvis Presley came from the village of Lonmay, the local village. A blacksmith called Andrew Presley who married in Lonmay and emigrated from here in 1745 is a direct ancestor of the King! Elvis fans in Scotland now have a new shrine to visit beyond Prestwick where the star made an appearance in the 60's. When Elvis's Scottish roots emerged early in 2004 the world press went mad!

There is a huge Tesco 4 miles away at the entrance to Fraserburgh that also delivers. In town there is also a smaller Safeway store with good parking. Fraserburgh is well equipped with shops. There are many national chains such as Boots, WH Smith, Thorntons and Woolworths and a plethora of locally owned stores where you can get anything from stunning flower arrangements at Floriana's through to artist's materials, if you're feeling inspired.

    The house has played host to countless parties over the last 200 years! The house lends itself equally well to large formal gatherings as to small relaxed house parties.

    The dining room can be set out in a formal manner with one long table, or for larger gatherings, the Red Room can also be used (it interconnects with the dining room) to seat up to 80 people. This leaves two further reception rooms allowing even more of your guests to drink, chat and maybe dance without getting in one another's way.

    The large reception room is ideally suited for dancing - at a recent party over 100 guests were Scottish reeling well into the night! There's even a hire shop for kilts up the road if you wish to get fully into the swing!
