The Wedding Planner advises: Anyone looking for a castle for an intimate wedding in Scotland should check out Castle Venlaw Hotel in Peebles, close to Edinburgh, Scotland this month.
The castle is situated in four acres of lawned and wooded grounds within the Royal Burgh of Peebles. The town centre is only three minutes away by car and only fifteen by foot. Edinburgh is about a 45 minute drive. The castle is easily located off the main Edinburgh to Peebles road. The castle is listed in the Good Hotel Guide 2004, recommended by Condé Nast Johansens, rated 4 stars by VisitScotland and 3 stars by the AA. The AA has also awarded the castle’s restaurant two rosettes in recognition of the quality of its cuisine. It has 12 en-suite bedrooms, most of which are particularly large with spectacular views across Peebles and the countryside beyond. The Glenturret Suite, with its super-king bed and separate sitting room, is an ideal retreat for the bride and groom, as is the Glenkinchie Suite which also boasts 2 bathrooms and the romance of a four-poster bed. The restaurant comfortably seats 35 guests in an elegant setting of period features such as a magnificent fireplace and elaborate plaster ceilings and cornices.
Throughout the month of January 2008, if you stay any night from Sunday to Thursday, the castle will offer a dinner inclusive deal when a booking is made on any of the bed and breakfast rates. This offer is subject to availability and does not apply to existing bookings.
