The Abbot's Tower

The Abbot's Tower has two original and glamorous suites, both with their own unique charm, luxury and good deal of quirk. Each suite occupies just two guests.

About The Abbot's Tower

The Abbot’s Tower is a 16th Century Tower House, built in c.1580 at the time of the Scottish Reformation and was once occupied by the last Abbot of the famous Sweetheart Abbey. The ruins of the Abbey are open to the public and are a short walk from the Tower in the pretty conservation village of New Abbey with its pub, shop, corn mill and tea room.

With secret rooms to safeguard the Abbot, the Tower is fascinating and has open views to the Solway coast and Criffel. Each romantic bedroom has armchairs for reading in, complimentary artisan chocolates and homemade lavender shortbread. One suite is richly decorated with tapestries, silks and velvets and has a Jacobean half-tester bed. The other suite has a Jacobean four-poster with tartan drapes plus a wood-burner. Breakfast is served in the Great Hall at the long refectory table by the fire. Laura and Scott are happy to tell you all about the history of the Tower and give you a tour. Within the grounds there is a small lavender farm.
