“Inc-wed-ible!!”
Reviewed 30 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We booked Kippilaw House for our wedding after looking for the UK-equivalent of a huge gite in the South of France (no mean feat), and were not disappointed. The house itself is quirky, stunning and very welcoming, and the minute we saw it and met Lil, the owner, we did not hesitate to book it. We had a whole weekend of wedding celebrations, and every one of the 90 guests who attended were knocked out by the venue, the food and the service. We wanted a venue where everyone could feel at home, and where kids and adults alike could run around and relax, and Kippilaw really was perfect. We had total flexibility in everything we did in the house, but opted for the in-house team to run the day for us which was absolutely the best decision. Our families still can't believe how such great food could be produced in a large domestic kitchen! We are now thinking of an excuse to come back for a holiday with friends and family.

Thanks again to all of the Kippilaw team for making our whole weekend so amazing.

Just returned home after celebrating our daughter's wedding at Kippilaw House. What a fantastic place - beautiful house and grounds, very comfortable, lovely people. Loved the AGA!
