We are delighted to share that Cringlete has just been awarded Luxury Boutique Hotel of the Year by the Luxury Travel Guide.
On approaching Cringletie House over the winding single track road up hill, an air of serenity, tranquility and peace descends upon the guests. There is almost an urge to get out of the car and walk the final 100 meters, if only for the slope of the drive! As soon as the building comes into sight guests are invariably struck by its beauty. This pretty, pale pink sandstone building with the large original, astragalled sash windows exhumes the character of the typical Scottish Baronial mansion with its romantic turrets.
Cringletie’s 12 bedrooms, one suite and the two-bedroom cottage in the grounds are all individually decorated with high quality materials such as fabrics and wall papers by e.g. Zoffany and Osborne & Little and paints from Farrow & Ball. These many choices have resulted in an atmosphere of welcome, warmth and comfort.
We are proud of the highest mobility award received in 2006 from Visit Scotland for Unassisted Wheelchair Access. In 2011 we also received the UK wide Catey Award for Accessibility! It means that also less mobile guests can enjoy what Cringletie House has to offer. One of our bedrooms is specifically designed to cater for wheelchair guests and guests with impaired hearing.
Our public rooms have maintained original features such as sash windows and marble fireplaces with roaring log fires in the winter.
Cringletie’s lovely bedrooms come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The classic rooms are the entrée-level rooms and although they are the smaller ones of the House, they all have their own character: under the eaves, the baby turret room and a dog-friendly room. Some of them have beds that can be made into a twin, others are kingsize or double.

One of the main internal features of the House is the hand painted ceiling in the Sutherland Room. The painting was created in 1902 to commemorate the marriage between George Sutherland and Elizabeth Wolfe Murray. For years this room, with its ornate carved fire place was the main drawing room. In more recent years the room was transformed into the Restaurant of Cringletie House. With the painted ceiling and the original oak floor it is a room that breathes the atmosphere, style and character of the years gone by. The large windows give unparalleled views of the surrounding gardens and country side. In this room guests will enjoy the appetisingly presented dishes that our Head chef and his team prepare.
The main objective for the kitchen brigade is to please the Cringletie guests and to create menus and dishes that will not easily be forgotten but on the contrary, make the taste buds tremble long afterwards! The style is modern British and benefits from the chef’s experience in classical French and Scottish cooking.
The kitchen philosophy is to work with the seasons which ensures that the best produce is used when it becomes available, making sure that the menus reflect the Market, the Garden, the Sea and the Season. Fresh produce is either picked from the walled garden or delivered daily to guarantee stringent freshness and quality. Having the walled garden also enables the chefs to appreciate the time and work put into this garden by the gardeners, delivering fresh fruit, herbs and vegetables. It will also teach them to respect their ingredients!
Another way of ensuring that the best and freshest products are used is buying them from trusted suppliers who are able to trace back their products to the field or boat. Needless to say that we try to source our products as locally as practically possible.
