Description

Stay in one of the oldest and finest inhabited castles in the Scottish Borders

Stay in one of the oldest and finest inhabited castles in Scotland. With rose-pink stone and fairy tale turrets, this historic castle is surrounded by tranquil parkland but is just 10 minutes’ walk from the charming town of Lauder in the Scottish Borders.

The accommodation consists of nine bedrooms in total which are divided between five separate apartments next to each other in the South Wing. Each apartment has its own living/dining area and kitchen and there is also the castle’s Victorian Kitchen where the whole group can dine together.

Catering can be provided and there is also the option to hire other parts of the castle e.g. the State Rooms on request, a private tour of the castle, and Spa treatments can also been arranged (additional charges apply).

  • Each individual apartment has its own reception area with sofas and a television. 

    Apartment 1: formerly the castle laundry, this is now a luxury 2 bedroom apartment across a cobbled courtyard from the castle

    Apartment 2: in the south-wing of the castle, a cosy one-bedroom apartment

    Apartment 3: formerly the castle's nurseries, now provide guests with comfortable accommodation in three bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms. 

    Apartment 4: a one-bedroom apartment featuring an original kitchen range in the open-plan kitchen/sitting room

    Apartment 5: formerly the castle sculleries, now a one bedroom apartment

    Whilst guests can chose to enjoy a few meals alone given each apartment has its own kitchen and sitting room, groups can convene at mealtimes to cook and eat together in the Victorian Kitchen which can accommodate up to 18 guests comfortably around a large central table. 

    The Victorian Kitchen was still used as the castle’s main kitchen until the end of WWII. The original kitchen range and vaulted ceiling are the room’s key features. It can seat all 18 guests on a large central table. Just off this room is the servery which has a dishwasher, fridge, hob and oven along with all crockery, cutlery, glassware and kitchenware.

    Each individual apartment has a dining table large enough to seat the occupants of that apartment and all have a full kitchen with fridge/freezer, oven and hob, dishwasher and all crockery, cutlery, glassware and kitchenware.

    *Breakfast & grocery hampers available on request - additional charges apply.

Edinburgh is around 45 minutes’ drive from the castle.

    What We Love ...
    - its magnificent exterior; it's got the Bavarian Neuschwanstein Castle look which Disney modelled for its Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty stories 

    - that groups can enjoy some private downtime in the privacy of their own self contained contemporary apartments

    - the impressive State Drawing and Dining rooms; these entertainment spaces were built for Kings and Queens

  • WEDDINGS
