Pollokshields,G41 4PG ,Glasgow
Tucked away in elegant, leafy Pollockshields yet only ten minutes from Glasgow city centre, Sherbrooke Castle is a fantastic 4-star escape from the stresses of modern life. This red sandstone Baronial mansion was built as a private house in 1896 and later served as a radar training centre for naval officers during the war. Now fully restored to its former glory, Sherbrooke Castle offers a unique combination of old style grace with modern luxury and comfort. The bedrooms in the main house are supplemented by elegant stable rooms and lovely garden suites. All the rooms are stylish and come equipped with king sized double or twin beds, Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs and room service. For a very special experience, consider the ultra-romantic Tower Suite with its elegant interior and separate lounge area. The restaurant specialises in serving up top quality ingredients with a contemporary twist. Recent main dishes have included pumpkin tortellini, beef bourguignon, Cajun chicken burgers and Scottish beef. Dishes are complemented by a fine wine list and after-dinner drinks in the lounge are also recommended. Exploring the local neighbourhood is a treat, as walks around Pollockshields reveal beautiful Victorian and Edwardian houses. Local attractions include the Burrell Collection, Bellahouston Park and Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s House for an Art Lover. For jaunts into the city centre and further afield, Sherbrooke Castle is only a short stroll from Dumbreck train station and also enjoys easy access to the M77 and M8.
