Gardens and Grounds

As you approach Cringletie House for the first time, you will get a foretaste of its beautiful grounds and gardens - sweeping manicured lawns, acres of mature woodland, grazing sheep, a pitch and putt course and, behind the house, our famous walled garden with its 400-year-old yew hedge, reputed to be the oldest in Scotland.

Explore our 28 acres further and you will find a delightful river and waterfall, a historic dovecote, woodland walks, outdoor sculptures and a croquet lawn.

Guests can play boules or outdoor chess in the walled garden and you may even spot badgers or owls in the woods at dusk. Come here in the Autumn and see the children gather their own conkers from our chestnut trees.

Our walled garden also houses a splendid vegetable patch, a children's play area with climbing frame and trampoline and areas for growing our own vegetables which is served freshly picked in our restaurant throughout the year.

Whether you explore Cringletie's grounds for yourself or just enjoy the delightful views from our bedrooms and public rooms, we guarantee you will be uplifted by their beauty, whatever the season.
