About Fenton Tower

Fenton Tower is a magnificent, fortified 16th Century tower located just 20 miles east of Edinburgh between Gullane and North Berwick, which has been meticulously restored to provide luxury accommodation for up to 13 guests, with additional accommodation available within Fenton Lodge for a further 4 guests if required. Fenton Tower is a unique place to stay that combines state-of-the-art facilities with the informality of a private home. With its dedicated staff it offers outstanding service and cuisine in a secluded and secure environment.

Our history

The Kings Hideout

Fenton Tower’s location was originally chosen because it afforded views in every direction, so that you would have early warning of an attack, while also being sheltered from the elements on the side of Kingston Hill.

There has been a fortified tower on this site since the 11th century. To the north of Fenton Tower there is a medieval burial site and the remains of the foundations of one of the earliest Christian chapels in Scotland.
