We offer modern, comfortable, centrally-heated accommodation in the historic setting of a Georgian mansion house. Additional accommodation is available in the adjacent Courtyard House where self-catering is an option.
The Burn has 18 bedrooms each equipped with tea and coffee making facilities. Each bedroom has a sink, and bathrooms are adjacent or near to each bedroom, as the house retains its post-Edwardian design of the 1930s. Bath sheets are provided for every guest in the rooms, hand towels as well as hand soap are provided in the bathrooms.
Most bedrooms are twin but some of the larger rooms have 3 or 4 beds. These larger rooms are ideal for families with young children and further beds, in the form of Z-beds, can be added.
A further 6 twin/double bedrooms can be made available within the adjoining Courtyard House but only if the house has not been let as a complete unit.

The game fishing season runs from middle of February to the end of October and the cost of the permit reduces in the summer and increases again when autumn approaches and the salmon run.

Food and Drink
Our 2 experienced chefs use mostly local ingredients to produce delicious and wholesome meals for our guests. We are often asked to prepare and cook North Esk salmon and depending on the growing season, we do try to add some home grown produce to our menu.
Meals are plentiful and tasty and we can cater for special dietary needs on request.
We can also offer a wide range of catering options from BBQs and curry lunches to champagne receptions and themed dinner nights. We pride ourselves in providing a full breakfast meal and delicious scones and cakes with afternoon tea.
