I have lunched at Coul House on more than one occasion after pleasant morning walks in surrounding area. Hotel is situated in small village of Contin and is well worth visiting for lunch,afternoon tea or dinner. The hotel is up a small drive and is not visible from the road but is signposted. The owners and staff are extremely welcoming and the food is first class. If you are a walker, I would recommend you walk first as its difficult to resist all three courses!! Menu has lots of locally sourced food e.g venison and seafood and there are daily specials. If you don't have room for pud. have a tea or coffee which is served with the most delicious home made tablet and shortbread. The view in the dining room over the Fairburn hills is wonderful particularly when they are snow covered.
I haven't stayed in the hotel as I live fairly locally but I am sure the bedrooms are as immaculate as the public rooms and toilets. There is a lovely log fire as you come in the main door which is a good spot to have a warming dram before you eat and there is also a cosy bar. Try Coul House. You will not be disappointed.

Fantastic food, Superb service and wonderful waiting-staff!
Every time I go here the food is fantastic and the staff are warm and welcoming. We are, upon arrival, invited to sit in the cozy, relaxed bar area for a few minutes before the meal to have a drink. Then, once we've settled a bit, we are shown to our table and the order is taken. Service is quick and a pleasure and the food is just divine! Desert is my favourite course and i am never disappointed! :)
Prices are very reasonable for the quality of food, service, location and atmosphere.
Just a word of caution, the turning off the main road can be a bit tricky if you've never done it before and the driveway is a little bit narrow in some places but other than that the journey up to the hotel is great.
I would thoroughly recommend a visit to Coul House Restaurant!

I have taken friends here 3 times in the last 2 weeks for the most delicious cream teas I've ever eaten.The scones are so tasty,with jam cream and chopped strawberries.There is also the lightest most delicious shortbread that can be made into 'strawberry shortcake' ,
.with fudge for afters.Well worth £5 per head.
I intend visiting regularly.
