Media release: Missing Downton? Live like Lady Mary at Dundas Castle

Library couch and fire

AS Downton Abbey draws to a close, luxury venue, Dundas Castle, has launched its own ‘Downton Experience’ for bereft fans.

Whether you want to live like a lord, cook like Mrs Patmore or just learn how things were done in times gone by, the Downton Experience gives castle guests first-hand experience of life in a grand house.

As an exclusive use destination with 17 gorgeous bedrooms, the Downton Experience can be booked for a group including overnight stays, or as a daytime experience for two to 20 people.

Tailored to individual requirements, the package features downstairs activities including: learning how to make a bed like a housemaid; cooking with owner, Sir Jack Stewart Clark’s private chef; and polishing the shoes or silver.

Upstairs is much more sumptuous and guests can choose to live like a lord, enjoying: meals served by the staff in the stylish Croquet Room where the Stewart-Clark family dines; shooting tuition on the estate with a gamekeeper; a private tour of the house with full details of life at Dundas; or just living the life of a lord or lady in the comfort and surroundings of one of Scotland’s finest stately homes.

Dundas Castle is an 18th century home featuring turrets, impressive staircases, sumptuous bedrooms and roaring fires.

Popular for weddings and corporate getaways as well as family parties and group events, the Castle features its own 600-year old keep, a private squash court and the spreading lawns and woods of the estate.

The Downton Experience starts from £2,500 for a day and can be tailored and extended to include overnight stays for groups and families according to their favourite Downton episode or event.
