Close the door on the world and relax in your very own piece of Scottish history.
Fenton Tower is a magnificent, fortified 16th-century tower located 18 miles East of Edinburgh near the coastal town of North Berwick. The castle’s location was originally chosen in the 11th century because it afforded panoramic views in all directions. It has had many distinguished visitors, among them being King James VI of Scotland (son of Mary Queen of Scots and Lord Darnley) who sought refuge as he fled from the rebel army in Fife across the Firth of Forth.
The Tower has now been meticulously restored, and opened in 2002 to provide five-star accommodation for up to 12 guests. Set among rolling countryside and surrounded by many of the world’s most famous golf courses (Muirfield, Gullane & North Berwick), Fenton Tower is the perfect base for a magnificent golfing experience.
On the ground floor sits the beautiful vaulted dining room, complete with its own suit of armour and antique French walnut dining table. Lit by candlelight for evening dinners this truly atmospheric room will do justice to any dinner party. 32 guests can be seated comfortably within the 4ft thick walls of this fortified home. Our chefs, using fresh local produce, and with years of culinary expertise, will create dishes to suit your individual requirements. From simple lunches to elegant candle-lit suppers, complimented by a selection of fine wines from around the world, your dining experience will be second to none.
The accommodation is spread over five impressive floors, all interlinked by two spiral staircases, and can accommodate up to 12 guests. The Great Hall, with its double-height, oak-beamed ceiling, can be used to entertain family and friends as you relax in front of the roaring log fire, or alternatively why not curl up with a good book or your favourite film in the library, with its own private bar.
All of the beautifully furnished bedrooms come fully equipped with complimentary drinks trays, bathrobes and hair dryers, as well as free-view television, DVD players, Wi-Fi internet access and direct-dial telephones. Each bathroom has its own individual style, with an antique bath and power shower, as well as underfloor heating, sumptuous towels and luxurious toiletries.
