scotland – SLEEP & Estate MASTER

Dabton House - A splendid Georgian country house set on the picturesque Queensberry Estate in Dumfriesshire

Dabton House – a brand new exclusive use venue in the South of Scotland – perfect for idyllic holidays or weddings and events. With a welcoming blend of country house elegance and modern hospitality, Dabton is the perfect location for a grand gathering or simply spending time together with friends and family.

Boasting eleven exquisitely appointed ensuite bedrooms and ample reception areas, contemporary design blends with Dabton’s beautiful historic features throughout the renovated property, while the four-acre formal garden sits amid 27 acres of tranquil mixed woodland.

Dabton was designed in 1820 by the popular architect William Atkinson, following a commission by the 5th Duke of Buccleuch. The house historically served as the home of the Queensberry Estate's factor until, in the 1980s, it was refurbished by the 10 th Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch as a wonderful family home for themselves and their four children, including Walter Dalkeith.

In this new chapter, the Earl and Countess of Dalkeith, Walter and Elizabeth, have been instrumental in leading the recent renovations of Dabton House, which they completed in August 2023. The family continues to use the house today and it retains the ambience of a family home. Meticulously restored to its former glory, the house incorporates modern comforts and amenities to meet the discerning needs of today's guests.

The blending of old-world charm and contemporary sophistication provides an unmatched setting for an array of occasions. Its amenities include a sauna, a well appointed treatment room, heated kennels, grass tennis court and catering kitchen.
