Accommodation and catering at Gowanbank

Come and stay for the weekend – or longer! Enjoy flexible accommodation, ideal for youth groups, conferences, retreats, houseparties and more.

Flexible accommodation

At Gowanbank we can provide accommodation for up to 45.

Our standard minimum occupancy is 34, but we are flexible about this at some times of the year.

We have bedrooms that sleep from 2 to 6. Some have disabled access. All are en-suite.


Catering at Gowanbank

You can choose catered or self-catered options at Gowanbank.  The self-catered option at our other centres is popular. It keeps your budget tight and means that you can plan your food exactly the way you want. We can  provide a catered option for weekends and mid week stays, so do please contact us, if you would like to discuss this.

When you self-cater…

You are responsible for planning and cooking all meals, serving, clearing and washing dishes. On arrival, a member of staff will carry out a kitchen induction with your cook and recommend that your cook has an elementary hygiene certificate as a minimum.

Our commercial standard kitchen if fully equipped to the latest standards has two six burner gas cookers with oven, commercial dishwashers, fridge, freezer, commercial microwave and food mixer. Cooking utensils, baking trays, cutlery and crockery are all provided. We also provide cleaning materials and liquids for dishes, surfaces, dishwasher and floors, kitchen linen and black bags.

There are facilities to recycle glass, plastics and aluminium.

Catered options

If you would like us to cater for your group for all or part of your stay, please ask. We would be happy to discuss your requirements and let you know about costs. We usually provide full catering for mid-week school bookings. See CLASSROOM OUTDOORS for more information about what we offer at our other centres – Lendrick Muir and Alltnacriche. Packages for Gowanbank are underdevelopment, but it would make an excellent venue for smaller, intensive study events. Many schools use our centres for Music, Maths or intensive language weekends in advance of the “orals”, prefects training, or preparation for senior pupil International Trips.
