The housekeeper’s rooms are quite possibly the best value accommodation we have ever stayed in. Location places it just outside Edinburgh, providing easy access to the city and surrounding area, as well as attractions a bit further afield, for example the highlands.
It is inside a beautiful castle, up the very top, so you get stunning views out of the lounge and bedrooms where you can spot deer, hares and pheasants. The grounds provide lovely walks and it is easy to wander into the local village for the bakery, pub etc.
The owners, Harriet and Michael, are very accommodating and really are happy to help in any way possible to make the stay perfect. We were even given a tour of the main castle, which was wonderful to have a look around in. It is clear to see why it makes such a lovely wedding venue too.
The apartment itself is large and fully furnished with washing machine, dishwasher, microwave etc and kept very clean, with plenty of spare towels etc if needed.
Value wise we really found we got a lot more than we paid for, as compared to accommodation in the area (bearing in mind none of these are in a castle!) we got a lot for our money.
I would definitely recommend staying here to any families, couples visiting the area. It really is an experience to say you’ve stayed in a real castle.
