If you’re looking to get married in a rural setting, then come to Carfraemill. We’re on the edge of the glorious Lammermuir Hills – a stunning backdrop to a happy and relaxed wedding day. We’d love to host your day and can accommodate all sizes of events.

Fabulous food is at the heart of all the best weddings we’ve ever been to, and that’s why we are passionate about creating stunning menus for our brides and grooms. We work with some incredible local suppliers – most of what’s cooked in the Carfraemill kitchen comes from the farms, dairies, kitchens and waters of the Scottish Borders and nearby.

We have 10 beautifully-styled country lodge rooms for you and your guests.

You will have a personal wedding host who will ensure that all the details of your day pan out just as you planned. Whether you’re hoping for rural romance, country house elegance, something econochic, or perhaps vintage inspired, Carfraemill will work with you to make your wedding day unique to you.

  • Stunning location on the edge of the Lammermuir Hills in the Scottish Borders, 30 minutes from Edinburgh.
  • Three locations to choose from – our beautiful marquee, oak-panelled reception room or country-chic private room.
  • Fabulous food with menus created for you using locally-sourced ingredients.
  • Space for the whole wedding party to stay in 10 gorgeous bedrooms.
  • A very personal service provided by your own wedding host.

Everyone loved it

Thank you all so much for everything you did for us on Friday - we had the most amazing wedding day, and everything ran like clockwork. So many of our friends and family commented on how much they liked our venue, and we couldn't agree more! Thank you!!

Thank you and the team so much for everything you did to make our wedding yesterday and weekend so special. We've loved every minute of it and the venue and all of the staff and team have been absolutely fantastic. Knowledgeable, efficient and what can best be described as "on it" at all times. So many of our guests commented on how impressive you guys were. There is definitely something to be said for picking a smaller, more personal venue and I have absolutely no second thoughts about choosing Carfraemill as our wedding venue. Thank you again, and we'll see you soon!

1st Class Hotel, Staff, Service and Location

I was recently at my brother's wedding at Carfraemill and it was a pleasure from start to finish. Everything about our stay was excellent, particularly the hotel staff. Chris, helped me immensely by printing off my best man speech the night before and if it wasn't for Margaret,we wouldn't have had our buttonholes on right! Nothing was ever too much hassle. We even had breakfast made for one of the self catering lodges and we were late for breakfast and there wasn't a problem. Nothing was ever too much hassle. The Marquee and the Campbell room exceeded my expectations and more. Susan was an excellent wedding planner and gave great support to my brother and his now wife throughout the planning stage and beyond. The food, morning, day and night was of the highest quality especially the food served at the wedding. I honestly could not recommend the hotel enough. Perfect.
