Winton Estate’s large, luxury, self-catering country houses exude comfort, style and tranquility. Our three unique self catering properties are available on a flexible basis for full weeks, long weekends, or weekday short breaks.
Please note that due to Winton Castle’s nature as a private home & exclusive-use events venue, guests staying at our self-catering properties do not have access to the castle or gardens unless by prior appointment. There are extensive public footpaths on the wider estate, maps for which can be provided. Please contact us for more information.
Green circles show our availability (please click for pricing), greyed out means the property is booked. We cannot accept Sunday check-ins.
If you have a very large group, you can hire two or more properties and we may be able to offer you a multi-hire discount, depending on availability & season, please email email@example.com for details.

If you’re planning a golf holiday with friends in East Lothian, Winton is a great place to base yourself. What’s more, the owners of Winton Estate have played an important role in developing East Lothian’s most famous golf courses because their lands originally included Muirfield, Archerfield and Gullane, still East Lothian’s world famous links courses.
East Lothian, aptly known as ‘Scotland’s Golf Coast’, boasts some of the best links and inland golf courses in the world. There are 22 excellent golf courses within 20 minutes drive of Winton Castle, including North Berwick, Gullane, Dunbar, Craigielaw, Royal Musselburgh (the oldest playing golf course in the world) and Longniddry.
