The Coach House Spa offers wellness retreats for a maximum of 10 guests  - perfect for groups wanting to come along together (ideal for groups who are looking for a venue to come away together) and gather in an away from it all location, enjoying a combination of wellness and pampering. 

A small luxury boutique spa, we are set in the stunning setting of Kinross House Estate in Kinross & Perthshire, the perfect location to find peace and recharge. We would love for you to join us on this retreat. A retreat is a very special time for our guests, a special opportunity to get away from daily life and seek a feeling of calm, restoration and wellness.

The weekend will comprise a combination of yoga, pilates and meditation workshops with our fabulous instructor Carmelina, plus time to pamper, relax and enjoy some time out from normal life, in the gorgeous surroundings of our estate. 

The Location

Our weekends take place at The Coach House Spa on Kinross House Estate. The charming Coach House Spa sits within the beautiful grounds of Kinross House Estate, located on the edge of the town on Kinross, overlooking stunning Loch Leven. We are just 40 minutes from Edinburgh and 25 minutes from Perth.

Kinross House Estate and its fabulous setting undoubtedly provide one of Scotland’s finest luxury destinations. Steeped in history and grandeur with meticulously maintained formal gardens, the estate comprises over 100 acres of beautiful formal gardens, woodland and spectacular views across to Loch Leven Castle Island. The estate including main house is now available to hire for the ultimate exclusive use events. The Coach House can be used in association with main house events, or for separate occasions such as our wellness retreats.

The Coach House sits in one corner of the estate next to our walled kitchen garden. Recently converted from the original stables of the estate, it now offers a very charming spa, with facilities including a Baronial style hall with floor to ceiling windows leading out to the courtyard which is perfect for yoga (and doubles up for evening dining), 10 double bedrooms, a Tartan Bar snug for relaxing at night and a pretty Courtyard with outdoor seating for the summer months.

The Coach House Hall offers an ideal space for yoga and meditation practice. With the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding estate and parkland, we offer a  lovely peaceful sanctuary from the outside world. With underfloor heating and flooded with daylight, the hall provides a very comfortable base for your stay.

The Coach House also houses a boutique day spa with three cottage-style treatment rooms, a hydrotherapy pool, sauna and a relaxation room.  Retreat guests will have the choice to add in optional treatments during your stay. The aim is for our guests to leave feeling restored, relaxed and rebalanced. See links to our Spa facilities here



The Accommodation

We can accommodate up to 10 guests in luxury ensuite double bedrooms built around a central courtyard, with all interiors designed by Royal Warrant Holder Mikhail Pietranek. By night, candles and a wood burning stove create the perfect atmosphere for complete relaxation. We promise wonderfully comfortable bedrooms, crisp white linen on deep down duvets, ensuite bathrooms, fresh flowers and lovely views around the estate. We provide tea/coffee making facilities with a selection of teas and herbal infusions in the snug.

This retreat will be led by Carmelina who is a highly-regarded Scottish yoga, pilates and Meditation teacher. She is a long-standing yoga and meditation practitioner. Carmelina began her teaching career as a yoga instructor, started training in 2000 in Wales and then with the Anahata School of Yoga in 2004, becoming a teacher of Hatha Yoga in 2006. In 2010, she also trained in Vinyasa Yoga on Holy Island.
