We spent a long weekend at Fordoun as a retreat after a pretty hectic work schedule of late and were looking for a peaceful tranquil escape in the Midlands with comfy rooms, spectacular views, an amazing Spa and sumptuous food. That's exactly what we got! A lovely setting in the Nottingham road area, Fordoun is a real treat and a... More

My husband and I went to Fordoun for some down time and a bit of pampering. It's exactly what we got. Staff were friendly and helpful, food was great, room was lovely and the spa and quality of the treatments was top notch.

WOW! This is a serene country retreat surrounded by tranquil rolling hills. The room is romantic and charming. The grounds seem to stretch forever and make for a great walk or cycle - or go on 1 of 2 hikes. The main lodge has a great restaurant and comfortable lounges. Some in our group used the spa which they rated... More

The setting is pastoral and beautiful. We felt relaxed just going up the driveway. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The huge tub was perfect for a relaxing soak. The staff are friendly and the food very good. Attention to detail was excellent - an example is a French Press coffee maker in our room!

We stayed in one of the two bedroom self-catering cottages, which were great. (My only negative comment would be they were perhaps slightly lacking in character.) We (family of 4, kids of 14 and 12) made extensive use of the free pool, sauna, steam room and flotation tank (the latter was great fun). We also paid for various treatments which... More
