Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Winton Castle, Pencaitland, East Lothian, Scotland, sleeps 2-16 in 8 bedrooms.

Winton Castle is an ideal catered venue for private parties and celebrations, weddings and corporate events, offering a unique venue that was designed for entertaining in the 16th century and is still perfect today! The Castle is offered on an exclusive use basis, for groups of 10 to 200 people for celebrations and weddings. Catered stays only - no self catering available - we can offer Bed and Breakfast or a fully catered package to suit your group.

Winton Castle has 8 bedrooms over two floors, 5 on the first floor and 3 on the second. With double occupancy, Winton Castle can sleep up to 16. Due to our A-grade listing and 350 year old plasterwork, not all bedrooms are en suite. All guests are provided with bathrobes, slippers, towels and toiletries.

The Castle offers a wealth of impressive social spaces, all of which are available to all guests. The entrance hall, with seating around the fireplace, opens into the Octagon reception room with its high stone ceiling. There is a more formal drawing room with a grand piano, as well as a cosy library. The dining room is a vast space for celebrations and formal dinners. The Cabinet room is a tranquil setting for meetings.

Whether you are looking for a formal dinner, a themed celebration or a quiet lunch, Winton Castle is an impressive venue. Enjoy our terraced and walled gardens for an afternoon or evening of activities, dance the night away in our ballroom or just sit back and relax around the open fires and enjoy the exquisite interior.

Winton's guests enjoy freshly prepared, sumptuous, East Lothian cuisine. Our local chefs create delicious traditional Scottish cuisine using the best local produce grown here in East Lothian: locally reared beef, lamb and pork; Belhaven salmon and trout; locally caught game birds and venison; organic fruit and vegetables; and mouth-watering desserts.

There are other properties on the estate if your group is larger.
