Newtonmill House

A charming former laird's house, in a little-known part of Scotland…

A pillared entrance is the first sign that you have arrived at this home from home, Grade B listed 18th century Wolsey Lodge. Set in its own rural estate, bed and breakfast guests will delight in its famed traditional walled garden that brims with herbaceous borders, peony’s, roses and iris beds. Character and history abound in this house which has connections with Glamis Castle - The Queen Mother was a frequent visitor and donated plants to the garden.

The rooms are marked with endearing personal touches and decorated with pretty wall coverings and fabrics. A traditional welcome and tea mark your arrival and whilst you sample these delights you will start to appreciate how special this beautiful house is.

The bedrooms, furnished with painted antique furniture, are delightful - the twin room with en suite bathroom gazes down over the walled garden and the double room with private bathroom looks out over a rose-filled courtyard.

All meals include fruit and vegetables grown in the garden and fresh eggs from Rose’s hens, breakfast is traditionally Scottish whilst dinner and supper options are seasonally inspired and cooked with great skill and finesse.

Your B&B Hosts

Stephen and Rose have lived at Newtonmill House for over 30 years. Rose is a Cordon Bleu cook and enjoys creating dishes using fresh local produce. Stephen runs the family business from home and is a keen sailor. They go out of their way to make B&B guests feel welcome - weather forecasts are provided at breakfast time for those guests involved in outdoor activities!


Access from the main Aberdeen - Dundee road makes this an ideal stopover from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen. Places of interest are only a short distance away, such as Glamis, Edzell, Dunnottar Castles, The House of Dun, Pitmuies Gardens, Arbroath Abbey, Montrose Wild Life Centre, Fettercairn Distillery and coastal fishing villages. This is also an ideal location for accessing the Cairngorm National Park with its Angus Glens and the coastline from Kincardineshire to Fife.
