Whitekirk Hill is the must-visit destination for family day-trippers, gym-goers, outdoors enthusiasts, dog owners, foodies and spa devotees.

Although it opened just before lockdown, Whitekirk Hill has quickly found its feet now that restrictions are relaxed. Perched on a hill on the outskirts of Whitekirk village with sweeping views over the Firth and rolling East Lothian countryside, Whitekirk Hill is a purpose-built lifestyle hub surrounded by 160-acres of mature Scots Pine and Spruce woodland, ponds and open grasslands.

As you enter the impressive building, the cathedral-ceilinged atrium and stunning chandeliers make a striking opening statement, and Whitekirk Hill offers something for everyone. There’s an on-site spa and a members-only leisure club that houses a state-of-the-art gym, fitness studio and a pool with a hydrotherapy suite. In addition, there are beautiful eco-friendly luxury lodges, a play barn and a family and dog-friendly restaurant – The Orangery – just perfect for a long, indulgent meal after an invigorating stroll around the dog-friendly grounds.

The Orangery is a bright and airy space that serves the most delicious brunches, lunches and dinners. The food is simply delicious. From a warm bowl of comforting soup to gastro delights such as roast duck breast with pumpkin and spinach risotto, you’ll find something to suit all tastes. Plus, the chefs use local produce and suppliers to ensure the freshest and best quality dishes and to fit with their ethos of supporting local. What’s more Head Chef Piotr and his team have relaunched their Sunday Lunch on the Hill with a delicious new menu, making Whitekirk Hill your Sunday go-to. And if dining alfresco is your thing (let’s face it, we have been embracing it lately), then head to the gorgeous outdoor dining area, popular whatever the weather. A roaring fire pit helps keep the chill at bay should the Scottish weather be less than kind, and two outdoor shelters, complete with heat lamps and strings of pontoon lights, ensure the experience is magical long after the sun goes down.

So, why not take the time to indulge, regenerate and unwind at one of East Lothian’s best-kept secrets? Spend the night in one of their incredible environmentally conscious lodges, relax at the award-winning spa, adventure with the kids in the Play Barn or take time out to enjoy gastro delights at the stunning Orangery. Recently mentioned in The Times and listed in the best cafés, restaurants and food businesses in North Berwick by The Scotsman, it may not be a secret for long!
