Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Elsick House, Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire, sleeps 18 in 10 bedrooms.

Elsick House is situated just 8 miles south of Aberdeen and offers a perfect base for all types of party, close to the city but totally rural and private set back behind sweeping drives and with 12 acres of surrounding gardens.

This friendly family house mixes the old with the modern. Some parts date back to the 14th Century but all rooms have been refurbished in 2015. Elsick is made for special occasions and celebrations and is unstuffy and very comfortable.

The house, until recently home to the Duke of Fife and his forebears the Bannermans, boasts 3 large and light reception rooms plus a study, breakfast room and kitchen. A spacious hall leads into a large drawing room and a dining room to seat 20 with ease and there are double doors between the latter two. Ten bedrooms all look out onto greenery and combined with 9 very modern bathrooms it offers unusual comfort for such a size of property.

Beautifully laid out grounds include a formal walled garden with herbaceous beds and to the side sweeping lawns with a summerhouse and furniture for that relaxed barbecue. There is a pond and a lake a little further afield so there is plenty of scope for exploration in safe surroundings

The house can be taken on a self-catering basis entirely or fully staffed for those requiring that extra bit of pampering. It may be a group of friends wanting to head for the golf links or a family wanting to enjoy time together. Otherwise it would appeal to a company looking for a retreat close to Aberdeen. If you are thinking of a wedding party you can enjoy exclusive use of the house and grounds for the bridal group for a three day weekend and there is a sensational marquee site within the walled garden which can accommodate up to 200 for a dinner/dance.

Whatever your cause for coming to Elsick you will find it easily accessible and with a warm ready welcome.
