Festive Staycation in Edinburgh

5 Guest Reviews

Enjoy this magical pre-Christmas break in the Scottish capital, staying in a stunning stately Georgian manor house in its own immaculate grounds, just a few minutes from the city centre. You’ll dine on delicious food, see the sights lit by twinkling festive lights, and sample a dram or two of fine single malt. Tempted?

This luxurious Edinburgh escape will give you the chance to eat the best Scottish food, enjoy the finest accommodation in a spacious Grade-II listed house (fully fitted with all mod-cons, plus a piano and a snooker room) and catch up on Christmas shopping!

You’ll return home relaxed and all set for the festive season having had a stimulating short holiday here with us in Edinburgh. ‘Slàinte!’ As we say up north.
