  • Hire Car is advisable if staying for a longer period

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 and has had many distinguished visitors, among them being King James VI of Scotland (son of Mary Queen of Scots and Lord Darnley) who took refuge there 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 5-star accommodation for up to 12 guests. Set among rolling countryside and surrounded by many of the worlds’ most famous golf courses (Muirfield, Gullane & North Berwick), Fenton Tower is the perfect base for a magnificent golfing experience. 

Fenton Tower is also available for smaller groups of 8 people for £8,640.00 per week. Additional guests are charged at £180.00 per person per night, maximum of 12 people.

Interior & Grounds

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 candle-light 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 our beautifully furnished bedrooms come fully equipped with complimentary drinks trays, bath robes 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 under floor heating, sumptuous towels and luxurious toiletries.  Close the door on the world and relax in your very own piece of Scottish history.

Map, Location & Local Information

Fenton Tower is situated 4 miles from the A1 and only a 40 minute drive from Edinburgh Airport. The location of the Tower makes it ideal for all kinds of country, sporting and recreational activities.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.
