This mid-Victorian Italianate mansion is the epitome of elegance and in the process of a recent multi million pound programme of renovation and extensions, the decoration and furnishing has been maximised to create the pre-eminent venue for weddings in Scotland with beautiful historical and traditional features linked to modern day comforts.
From the moment one goes through the ancient wrought iron gates and travels the winding drive you enter a past age of splendour and undoubted privilege. From the gates the magnificent frontage is seen to maximum advantage and, unlike other Ayrshire wedding venues, it is not a hotel. To all appearances it is a Victorian baronial mansion exclusively preserved for you and your intended to enjoy the most important day of your lives.
Across Scotland, UK and Europe the Moorpark House is a unique castle wedding venue. It is in effect a pocket sized stately home but with a tremendously warm feel heightened by operational log fires and of a size that is perfect for the vast majority of weddings that desire exclusivity and total privacy.
Very conveniently situated between Glasgow International and Glasgow Prestwick Airports – 20 minutes from the former and 30 minutes from the latter – and just at the end of the M8 motorway it is one of the most easily accessible wedding venues in Scotland – from anywhere in Scotland by car, or the UK or Europe by car or low cost flights.
Because Moorpark House has, including the honeymoon suite, 12 en-suite double rooms it has an arrangement with the 123 room 4 Star Menzies Hotel in Irvine whereby rooms are at a discounted rate of £68 for 2014, £72 for 2015 and £75 for 2016. Menzies is 15 minutes from Glasgow Prestwick Airport – served by Ryanair – and 30 minutes from Glasgow International Airport – served by Easyjet – and shuttle arrangements can be made between it and Moorpark House.
