My husband and I went to Fordoun for some down time and a bit of pampering. It's exactly what we got. Staff were friendly and helpful, food was great, room was lovely and the spa and quality of the treatments was top notch.

WOW! This is a serene country retreat surrounded by tranquil rolling hills. The room is romantic and charming. The grounds seem to stretch forever and make for a great walk or cycle - or go on 1 of 2 hikes.
The main lodge has a great restaurant and comfortable lounges. Some in our group used the spa which they rated highly.
There is golf just down the road.
The service is excellent. Breakfast and dinner was outstanding.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: From what I could see all the rooms were excellent!

Such a great place to chill out and relax. Wonderful staff willing to do anything for you with a smile on their face. Owners always present and very chatty. Would recommend this hotel as a great location and very peaceful.

I am so in love with this place! It is like a lil piece of heaven, on earth. We booked in for a few days at the farm cottages and I was blown away! The cottages are so beautiful with amazing tasteful décor. I loved the modern up to date look and the attention to detail in every aspect. The cottages are super comfy and the staff are so friendly and helpful.

I love that they are so in touch with nature. On the first day there were so many cows and calves in front of our chalet and it was the most beautiful and relaxing sight ever.

The spa is also amazing and super relaxing. I had the most amazing and talented therapist on both days. She was so sweet and thoughtful. My partner did not like his therapist at all on the first day, however he was very happy with the therapist he had on the second day. The floatation pool was even more amazing and I just could not get enough of it.
Overall it was an amazing holiday and I highly recommend it to everyone who just needs a break from the hustle and bustle and all the stress we face on a daily basis...

The setting is pastoral and beautiful. We felt relaxed just going up the driveway. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The huge tub was perfect for a relaxing soak. The staff are friendly and the food very good. Attention to detail was excellent - an example is a French Press coffee maker in our room!
