The Details...

Host the ultimate country get-together in the heart of the city at this stately Georgian manor just 2 miles from Edinburgh centre. Stylishly stood amongst 3 acres of beautifully manicured grounds, Drylaw House fuses period elegance with the draw of the city crowds. Hold sparkling cocktail nights or urban city socials, or genteel soirees and sophisticated garden parties. Fire up the seven-person hot tub for garden, chill-out days or hire the manor’s gourmet chef for a gastronomic stay.

Hidden amongst an expansive walled garden at the end of a private, tree-lined driveway, Drylaw House is a peaceful hideout in an exclusive residential area. Its Grade-II listed design dates back to the early 18th century and boasts refined Georgian features with chic, modern comforts. There are grand high ceilings with ornate cornice work, above original floorboards, wooden panels and classic, shuttered windows.

Across its four impressive floors you’ll find a myriad of sprawling social spaces, where you can enjoy laidback days or group celebrations. Along with two kitchens, two dining rooms and two comfortable TV rooms, there’s the games room, drawing room and beautiful open hallways.

Each room has been thoughtfully styled with an understated glamour and showcases handpicked antique pieces and sumptuous home furnishings. Relax in the distinguished drawing room or feast around the elaborate dining tables, lining up a game of pool or curling up in front of the fireplace. Look out for the traditional Aga or the vintage piano or the secret, hidden cupboards and exquisitely painted frescos.

The nine extensive bedrooms offer space for up to 21 people across five doubles, two twins and two family rooms for three to four people. Furnished with an array of four poster beds, patterned rugs and plush, designer fabrics, they are tasteful rooms where you can relax in complete and utter comfort. Seven luxury bathrooms are also shared across the rooms, including two deluxe en-suites and five large, family bathrooms.

Edinburgh’s medieval streets are destined to tempt you beyond the gardens, and are famous for their historic architecture and colourful, cultural flavours. Explore the ancient mysteries of the Old Town and the dramatic castle walls or the elegant vibes of New Town with its bustling shops and bars. Discover its rich and interesting history and its uber-trendy heights, as you go on a memorable journey through the city’s iconic sights.
