So, most of us take a holiday to relax both mind and body. At Fordoun Hotel and Spa we offer you a range of luxurious treatments and rooms to enjoy. When you’re feeling the itch to explore the Midlands futher, consider the following…

We all have our weakness when we’re on diet…whether your indulgence is a rich and creamy chocolate, a tall glass of wine, a good cup of coffee or a gourmet meal, we have found a spot for you to try!


For those chocoholics, Chocolate Heaven is the place where you’ll want to be! Enjoy a conventional chocolate dipping experience (marshmallows, fudge, Turkish delight and fruit) or if you are feeling adventurous, try some gherkins dipped in chocolate too! The owners of this little haven import Belgian chocolate and combine it with their own unique fillings – these fillings include biltong, chilli, curry and chai spices. Choose your own mix of chocolates to take home or give as gifts. This is a must for all those with a sweet tooth!
