Douneside House extends a warm welcome to serving and retired military guests, with exclusive discounted rates which are available throughout the year.

Following the tragic deaths of her sons, Lady MacRobert wished for Douneside House to be used as a holiday home for members of the British Armed Services. To continue this valued tradition, special discounted rates are available for serving or retired members of the armed forces throughout the year.

Military rates apply to serving or retired members of the armed services and their immediate families (spouses/partners, parents, children or siblings). Immediate family can stay at Douneside House without a member of the armed forces as long as they are 'sponsored' by the member of the armed forces. For more details on eligibility please see our military guests page. Our discounted military rates are not available through our online reservation system, to make a military reservation please email manager@dounesidehouse.co.uk.
