Regal Elegance: A Downton Abbey-Inspired Escape

Step back in time into the Edwardian Era with a ‘Downton Abbey’ inspired stay at Glenapp Castle, where history, elegance and luxury combine…


Your journey begins as you arrive at the secluded Glenapp Castle, surrounded by 110 acres of breathtaking country estate. You are greeted by your team of dedicated butlers who are at hand to welcome you personally and whisk your bags away as you settle into the Downton lifestyle with a delectable Afternoon Tea. Enjoy the delicate sandwiches, freshly baked scones, delicious pastries and specialty teas as your butler shares their expertise on the etiquette surrounding this wonderful tradition. Later, relax in your majestic Castle Bedroom Suite, meticulously designed with period furnishings, sumptuous fabrics and lavish style.  Throughout your stay, simply ring that bell and our butlers will be delighted to cater to your every need – they are at your service.

Start your next day with a luxurious table-served full Scottish breakfast, before embarking on an accompanied leisurely morning stroll through the stunning Italian Gardens designed by world-renowned horticulturist Gertrude Jekyll, just as they did in the Edwardian era. Spend the rest of the day trying pastimes of the period on the estate, whether a sophisticated game of croquet on the lawn or a competitive tennis match, before your engaging etiquette session with your personal Butler begins. During this, you will practice the impeccable decorum expected at any Downton dinner party, a skill that will be useful for your night ahead. Come evening, get dressed up in your finest attire and indulge in a sparkling champagne reception with canapes, followed by a lavish 7-course feast.

Depart the following morning feeling rested and rejuvenated with ever so fond memories of your Edwardian experience…
