The Details...

Stay in a private wing of Thirlestane Castle in The Maitland, a two bedroom luxury escape in what was the old laundries. With its own private access and views across the parkland, guests can enjoy a relaxing stay near the Scottish town of Lauder.

Created in the south wing of the castle, the heart of the apartment is a spacious, open plan living area. Full height windows and high ceilings allow light to flood into the room, which has a chandelier hanging above the comfy sofas in the sitting section. There is also a dining table, and fully equipped modern kitchen with views out across the surrounding countryside.

Elsewhere there is a kingsize bedroom with en suite shower and a further super-king or twin bedroom which has an adjoining bathroom. All of the rooms have been designed to bring the historic property up-to-date but without losing any of its classic and traditional charm. Access to the apartment is either through the gardens on the same level, or via a private staircase from the enclosed cobbled courtyard.

A complimentary tour of the castle, which dates back to the 16th Century, is also included and there is the opportunity to hire the State Rooms or Victorian Kitchen for exclusive dining. There is a tea room in the castle which opens over the summer months and serves a selection of drinks, sandwiches, and home baking. A host of events from motoring festivals to civil war re-enactments take place throughout the year. If you stay during the winter months, the castle is closed to the day visitor so you can enjoy the tranquillity of this parkland location.

It is just a 10 minute walk from Thirlestane Castle to the nearby town of Lauder, which has a host of eateries and shops to explore. Edinburgh is also just 35 minutes away by car and there is an hourly bus that heads into the famous city. One of Britain's cultural hubs, there is always plenty to do in Edinburgh. History buffs can visit the castle or scale the Scott Monument, while the views from Arthur's Seat are not to be missed. Discover the independent shops of Old Town before capping things off with a whisky tasting session.
