The Directory of Unusual Places to Stay

Gordon Castle Estate

Fochabers, Moray, Scotland

18th century castle + cottages, for EVENTS, is set within a beautiful estate with walled garden. It offers stays for up to 46 guests in Fochabers.

WE NO LONGER FEATURE THIS ACCOMMODATION IN OUR DIRECTORY AT QUIRKYACCOM.COM- but there are many other wonderful places. Take a look!

Glorious castle estate that offers a walled garden to explore, highland games to enjoy and a fishing lake to discover as well as a cafe offering a seasonal menu and a children's natural play area! Add to this a stay in a beautiful 18th century castle or one of 5 cottages and you are sure of a wonderful Scottish escape in Fochabers. 

The castle itself offers a wonderful blend of history with a touch of the 21st century and is available for exclusive hire. It has 8 large bedrooms all with en-suite facilities plus travel cots are available for the little ones. There is even a lift to the first floor so less mobile guests can enjoy the property too! It can sleep up to 18 guests in total. 

After a stroll around the beautiful walled garden and grounds, you can relax in the castle drawing room with a glass of Gordon Castle Gin, read a paper in the study or visit the billiards room. No need to worry about cooking here as you will dine on food prepared by the resident gourmet chef. Imagine a piece of succulent Aberdeen Angus Beef melting in your mouth or some fresh fish that has been caught that day from the local River Spey. 

There are also other properties on site for you to stay in. The Garden cottage sleeps 8 guests whilst the Lakeside Cottage sleeps 4 guests. Both of these can be booked with the Lakeside Bothy as well offering space for a further 4 guests, however please note the Bothy does not have any cooking facilities or seating areas. Courtyard Cottage sleeps 4 guests and Kennel Cottage sleeps up to 6 guests and allows dogs. If you are looking for a romantic escape for 2 then the Quarry Gardens Lodge is the one for you and benefits from its own secret garden and freestanding bath! 

Why not book the Gordon Castle Estate for that special occasion, a wedding or a birthday party! Sleeping up to 46 guests in total, it would certainly create memories for years to come!
