Beautiful home and the staff was welcoming and provided information on every room. We stayed at the Parkhead House so we also were able to enjoy the grounds around the... More

I booked this event for myself and my mum for only £5 each and it was more then worth it. We were there for the adult crafting however there was plenty kids activities too. We didn't know exactly what to expect when we got there. We were in a classroom environment and provided with a mince pie and hot tea... More

Went here for a family wedding and everything was perfect, the food, the setting, the staff, it was secure for cars and an amazing wedding venue. Only negative was there needed to be more chairs in the ante room before going into dinner hall. We would recommend to friends for wedding venue or family party venue.

we go every year and love this introduction to the festive season. It is great to support local businesses and crafts, and we always find something unusual. And the setting makes it extra special!

Visited Hopetoun House for the Christmas Fayre. Ticket price of £6.00 each was a bit on the high side, as didn't see that much of the house itself. Exhibitors were varied and there was a good selection of goods on sale. Bit disjointed when you have to go through the stable restaurant to get to exhibitors who were in the... More

Went to the Christmas fayre today. It's a lovely drive up to this grand house. It's a beautiful building. I felt that the layout of the fayre was a little confusing but there was some lovely goods and stalls but I would have liked to have seen more stalls with Christmas themed items. Brass band was playing which was nice... More

I love visiting Hopetoun House during the summer months. The lovely walk in the grounds of the house adds to its charm. So much history in this place. The dining rooms and crockery displays are out of this world.
