Private & Corporate Events

Oxenfoord Castle makes a spectacular and unique venue for special events, private celebrations and corporate activities. Just 12 miles from Edinburgh but a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city, it’s brilliantly located and has all the historic grandeur and glamour required for events of all kind.

Dinner Parties
For a sophisticated evening and phenomenal food, why not consider throwing a dinner party for friends, clients or colleagues in The Dining Room at Oxenfoord Castle? Its eau-de-nil walls, Old Master paintings and antique furniture give it a rare elegance, while the crimson-painted library with its open fireplace is perfect for pre-dinner aperitifs. From landmark birthdays and anniversaries to a treat for key staff, dinner or lunch at Oxenfoord is a real occasion. All catered for by the award-winning Hickory, with inimitable flair and panache.

Corporate Away Days
For team building sessions and staff recognition events just a short trip from the city, Oxenfoord Castle ticks all the boxes, with extensive grounds for all kinds of outdoor activities and spacious reception areas for awards ceremonies and celebratory dinners.
