Steeped in history, Crossbasket Castle has many unique period features which have been restored to their original beauty using traditional craftsmen and materials.

 

The Stewart Drawing Room is a perfect example of the quality of restoration featuring uniquely detailed cornices finished in gold leaf to ensure these features convey the magnificent grandeur typical of this era.

The perfect luxury retreat for guests looking for peace and tranquillity, Crossbasket features nine breath-taking en-suite bedrooms each decorated in a classical style and named in honour of a historical custodian of this magnificent castle. Each bedroom is individually crafted and strikes the perfect balance between traditional character and modern finishing.

Authentically charming, Crossbasket’s four-story bridal tower dates back to the 16th century as part of the preceding Mains Castle. The fairy-tale turret room, built on a hill overlooking the Calder river, is served by a sweeping spiral stone staircase. A true one-off, it is the ultimate bridal suite.

Bedrooms

Nine breathtaking en suite bedrooms each decorated in a period style and named in honour of a historical custodian of this magnificent Castle. Every bedroom is finished with stunning period window and bed dressings and complemented with original antique furniture and luxuriously over sized beds.
