The property: The Cromlix Hotel

Who: Thirty-two-year-old Scottish tennis legend, winner of three Grand Slam titles, two-time Olympic gold medalist, Davis Cup champion, who also happens to be the founding member of Malaria No More UK charity (alongside none other than David Beckham), active anti-cancer charity spokesperson, and owner of the Cromlix Hotel. In other words, all-around good guy, Sir Andy Murray.

Why: The Cromlix Hotel is a drenched-in-history kind of spot. Little is known about the Lords of Cromlix before the 15th century, but we know that in the early 15th century, Edmund Chisholm acquired the Cromlix Estate, which remained in the family for four centuries, only to be turned into a luxury hotel in 2014. Today, the Estate boasts ten bedrooms and five suites, each one with their individual design and character, and many of which are equipped with hand-painted, free-standing baths, and antique Scottish furniture. It’s like you’re stepping into a Jane Austen novel.

The hotel is located in the countryside, just three miles from Dunblane (Murray’s home), set on thirty-four acres of secluded woodlands and garden grounds, with its own chapel and house loch. Cromlix also comes with the Chez Roux restaurant, which serves seasonal meals from locally-sourced produce.
