Borthwick Castle Christmas Package 2020

We are awaiting confirmation of the 2021 package, so we are showing a historic package as a guide of what to expect. It's never too early to book, so enquire for 2021.

Borthwick Castle is one of the finest 15th-century keeps in Scotland. It offers tranquillity, opulence and the quintessential Scottish castle experience. It has been lovingly and superbly refurbished, retaining every bit of its Medieval grandeur and atmosphere, but now with the modern comforts of a sumptuous home from home.

There are 12 uniquely designed bedchambers with lavish bathrooms, magnificent yet intimate dining and lounge areas, roaring fires, breathtaking views and spiral staircases, inviting exploration and adventure.

Today the castle benefits from having had two major refurbishments, one in 1913 and the latest one in 2013, bringing it up to an exceptionally high standard. The works culminated with the castle winning one of the top interior design awards, the ‘Hotel Interior Design’ category of the Northern Design Awards.

Borthwick Castle sleeps 26 people in 12 bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. There are 3 recreational rooms, including the State Room.

What it Includes...

Christmas Eve

  • Traditional afternoon tea will be served within the Stateroom in front of the glowing fire, with delicate cakes and fancies, sandwiches and savoury treats.
  • Join in with a History tour with a difference, taking in the festive goings-on of the past. For children, there will be a 'Wizard' treasure hunt around the castle with hidden clues and exploring to be done.
  • In the evening, your guests will be treated to a sumptuous Christmas Eve supper. Before the children retire to bed, stockings will be hung in the State Room with mince pies & carrots and a wee dram being left by the Great Hall fireplace for Father Christmas when he comes down the chimney!

Christmas Day

  • When Christmas morning arrives, you will be served a luxury Scottish breakfast before gathering around the Christmas tree to see what Father Christmas may have brought.
  • As all the family enjoy a relaxed morning, festive delights will be available for you to enjoy before the traditional Christmas Day banquet is served.

Boxing Day
