Captivating Duns Cottage sleeping up to 26 guests

Welcome to Langton Castle. The castle has belonged to the same family for almost 600 years. The present house was built in 1785 and incorporates the walls of a much older castle.
Today the castle remains a private family house, available for exclusive fully serviced weekend, mid-week or weekly rentals. Restored and continually maintained to the highest standard, every original feature is retained, and can be appreciated as intended. All of the modern comforts that one would expect are successfully incorporated without detracting from the character of the house and the relaxed atmosphere which visitors continually comment upon and enjoy so much.
Please enquire for Christmas and New Year rates.

Please note that there are additional cottages that can be rented within the grounds of the castle. There are 4 self catering cottages (to sleep 2, 2, 4 and 6 guests respectively) that can be hired in conjunction with the castle for large groups of up to 42.

Langton Castle is one mile South East of Duns in the eastern Scottish Borders, probably the most accessible part of rural Scotland. The castle stands at the end of a smooth 500 yard private drive in an area of beautifully maintained woodland and grass parks, with distant views to the Cheviot hills. The location is completely rural - there is absolutely no traffic noise and your privacy is assured.
The dramatic cliffs, coves and castles of the coast are fifteen miles to the East, whilst two miles to the North the rich farmland of the Tweed valley changes abruptly to the moorland landscape of the Lammermuir Hills.
The Scottish Borders and Northumberland are rich in historic towns, castles and houses to visit, and this rural setting is packed with opportunities for activities such as cycling, walking, golf, shooting and fishing.
Should you choose to stay at the castle, there is a billiard room, table tennis or croquet on the lawn during the summer. In the grass park, anything from a clay pigeon shoot to a full Highland Games can be arranged.
Any activity suitable for the castle or grounds can be arranged. Bands and pipers may be hired and the ballroom is an excellent place to hold a ceilidh, or any other dancing. There is a billiard room with full-size table and table tennis. Outside, anything from an informal game of croquet on the lawn to clay pigeon shooting to a full Highland Games can be held.
Should you choose to venture away from the castle, the Scottish Borders offer endless opportunity for walking, cycling and historic sights. The castle is also within easy reach of many excellent golf courses (Duns course is only 2 miles away), historic towns, country houses and castles. In season, excellent shooting and fishing is available locally by arrangement.

Having arrived at the covered porch you enter the stone flagged Stair Hall. Twin stone staircases converge at an Ionic portico that opens onto the Gallery. The Dining Room has a great twenty-four seat oak table. It was actually constructed in the room in 1897 and has been here ever since. In the evening dinner can be held lit by candles before the log fire, and if the other tables in the room are used, up to 50 guests can comfortably be seated to dine.
The Drawing Room is the same size as the Dining Room, and with its many comfortable chairs and sofas, as well as a baby grand piano, provides an elegant setting for an evening beside the fire. The Morning Room is in the East wing. An oval room, it has bay windows looking east down the lime avenue across the fertile farmland of the Tweed Valley to the Cheviot Hills in Northumberland.
Beyond the Morning Room lies the Ballroom. This magnificent room is the largest in the castle. It has two great crystal chandeliers and can be used for wedding ceremonies, receptions, dances or seminars. Up to 92 guests can comfortably be seated to dinner using our own banqueting chairs and tables. There is also a Billiard room with full size table.
The castle has 14 bedrooms (including the 2 single bedrooms located in the turrets), all completely individual with original period furnishing. Guests are always struck by the size of each room and their huge windows with distant views. There are eight bedrooms on the second floor and one on the third, with three further principal bedrooms on the ground floor. Of these, nine have en suite bath or shower rooms, and all have their own basin. Two have octagonal turret rooms for children. On the second floor there are also two shower rooms.
All of the bedrooms are heated, spacious and comfortably furnished. If required, there are also two single bedrooms in the dining room and drawing room turrets. These are elegant octagonal rooms, but due to their distance from a bathroom these are not considered to be principal bedrooms.
