Meldrum house

Meldrum House Country Hotel & Golf Course in Aberdeenshire, Scotland is offering the chance for a Moneywise reader and guest to win a twonight stay at the four-star hotel.

This 13th-century baronial house sits in a 240-acre estate in the stunning Aberdeenshire countryside and was awarded the prestigious AA Hotel of the Year for Scotland prize in 2014/15.

The hotel takes its name from the Meldrum family who first occupied the land around the house in 1236, during the reign of the Scottish king, Alexander II.

The family later became powerful and great landowners in north-east Scotland, with properties including Drumoak and Fyvie Castle. Their son, George, would go on to become an ambassador to the court of King Henry VIII.

Today, the property has recently undergone a £4.5 million redevelopment and a new wing combines modern glass design with the period features of the original building.

Meldrum House now has rooms within the main house, the converted stables and the new wing, giving a total of 51 bedrooms. Rooms mix classic Scottish style and modern luxury design, and those in the new wing have floor-to-ceiling windows.

Also contained in the stunning new development is a ballroom and an outdoor terrace, which looks out on to the private members’ 18-hole golf course. In the old building, the hotel’s refurbished restaurant boasts two red rosettes for quality. Plus the hotel’s popular cave bar is more than 800 years old with a menu that boasts more than 100 whiskies to choose from.

The hotel is located 20 miles north of Aberdeen and can be accessed easily by car from both the city centre (a 30-minute drive) and the airport (a 20-minute drive). You can also get a bus from Aberdeen city centre to the hotel (this takes about an hour). For more information, visit
