Rufflets’ ten acre gardens are a joy to behold and are one of the hotel’s greatest assets. The gardens have won many national awards over the years and Rufflets has also participated in Scotland’s Gardens Scheme, where gardens are open to the public on specific days during the year.
Rufflets’ head gardener, Phil Harper, has been lovingly tending to the gardens, planning stunning, colourful borders and supplying the hotel with freshly cut flowers, fruits, vegetables and herbs throughout the seasons, in addition to keeping the acres of grass and formal hedges neatly trimmed.
Rufflets’ gardens are much sought after for wedding photography, as the romantic streams, bridges and mature trees provide an ideal backdrop for memorable photographs. The terrace and lower garden is also licensed for civil marriage ceremonies.
The secluded setting, woodland and 1.5 acre field, make Rufflets an ideal venue for outdoor sporting activities and team building events, ideal for corporate use.
The sunny, south facing terrace is popular during the summer months, where Afternoon Tea, alfresco lunch and drinks are served.
