When we do not have a group in residence we are delighted to be able to offer Bed & Breakfast to those who wish the unique experience of staying at Britain’s smallest cathedral. There are two main buildings as well as the Cathedral set in eight acres of grounds including lawns and woodland. We have sixteen bedrooms, a mixture of single, double and twin; some of which are en-suite.

We are classified by Visit Scotland as a 3-star Guest House and were awarded 8.6/10 by visitors who booked through last year. We are part of the Green Tourism scheme, having been granted a Silver award, and use Fair Trade and Scottish products where we can.
