Such a beautiful house and grounds. We had fantastic weather which made it even better. There was so much room and the house had been kept so well. Was very comfortable and peaceful. Would definitely recommend, particularly for a large group.
I could not recommend this house more for a big group (30 of us on a hen do) to celebrate. The house is absolutely beautiful. The catered night was fantastic (food delicious). We were able to order hot tubs, food and drink delivery which was there when we arrived. Loads of outdoor space. We had no need to leave kippilaw house from Friday to Sunday what a fantastic weekend. I'd love to go back!
I had the peasure of a attending the wedding of Jen & Harry here on 26/04/18.
The setting was stunning the House was tastely decorated in vintage style.
Everything was perfect for the lovely Couple.
Ceremony room very tastefully decorated with a very talented Harpist entertaining us whilst waiting for the Bride.
The meal was delicious serving staff very friendly and helpful. Bar service excellant and well priced.
Lastly when our Coach would not attempt the drive way, the staff all pitched in with their cars to drive us safely to the coach.
Fabulous Day, Thank you all very much
We are just off the back of our wedding at this wonderful looking old building. And i cannot thank them enough.
Starting with the grounds they are very well kept, plenty of outside spaces from the big tree and field down to the well kept garden at the side of the house. Then you go inside and you are greeted by a wonderful lobby with many rooms to the side and a grand staircase which leads up to the many rooms available from the owners Lil and Douglas.
Onto the wedding, we booked the place for 2 nights with breakfast included. the night before was a nice chill affair with much decorating and we were pretty much given the run of the place with Lil on hand if needed in another part of the house. On our wedding day they could not have been any nicer, breakfast was served with plenty in reserves for our hungry guests and all the staff turned up to facilitate our wedding and they really could not have been any better if they tried, they worked their hearts out! Everything went without a hitch till later on that night when our bus company wouldnt come down the long driveway part and again they stepped in offering to run our guests up and down this path so that they wouldnt do themselves an injury. With many of them working the next morning as well (they usually dont do a thursday) it was a monumental effort and one that myself and my bride very much appreciated. I honestly cant say enough about how down to earth, giving and thoughtful everyone was.
All in all a fantastic venue with fantastic people!
We had our wedding at Kippilaw in September 2017 from Friday night through to Sunday morning and the whole experience was wonderful! We didn’t want to leave.
The venue is fantastic and our guests loved it! We had guest from the UK and Taiwan and they thought the house was just stunning and made the environment feel magical. Nice rooms with different themes and lots of character. It really did have the feel of a big family wedding! The house has a few fireplaces that were on which made the evening feel very cozy.
The food was outstanding, we had beef, seafood and a vegetarian pie (which was huge!) everyone loved it. Cutting a huge piece of meat really was fun for our guests – some new skills were acquired that day. A great way to make people happy is to give them great food!
The team at Kippilaw were also great, Lil and Douglas helped us plan and prepare the wedding – making sure we didn’t make any newbie mistakes, the catering was great and suited everyones needs and the waiting staff were extremely helpful.
The house interior and exterior makes for some great photos too! We have a lot of happy memories here.
A great place for wedding with lots of character, highly recommended!
We all had the most fantastic weekend at Kippilaw. I was hosting a 21st birthday celebration for my closest 20 friends and close family and we had such a fun time. The old house is full of character and Lil and all the staff were so hospitable and welcoming. The planning of the weekend was made super easy also with Lil super relaxed approach. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone for large celebrations.
I celebrated my 21st Birthday here on a magical weekend with 30 of my closest friends. Not only is the house absolutely beautiful and perfectly equipped for catering or self-catering, but Lil and Lauren were so friendly and useful to help with any questions I had before we arrived. We had beautiful weather so were lucky enough to be able to make use of both the incredible grounds as well as the beautiful house, and it really is in the most spectacular location. Having no noise restrictions also meant that we could enjoy our weekend into the early hours, without being worried about disturbing the neighbours. I would jump at the opportunity to stay at Kippilaw again!
