Gardener's House, Arniston Estate, Gorebridge, Edinburgh and Lothians, Scotland, UK - Tranquil Countrysetting Yet Only 35 Minutes From Central Edinburgh
About Henrietta Dundas
Arniston Estate has been in my family since 1571. We still live on the estate today. Among other activities we now run four holiday cottages on the estate.
Henrietta Dundas purchased this House in 1750
Why Henrietta Dundas chose Gorebridge
Gardener's House is unique, secluded and steeped in history. Guests are invited to enjoy the beautiful grounds of Arniston House yet we are only 10 miles from the bustle of central Edinburgh and its mixture of culture, shops and nightlife.
What makes this House unique
The local train station at Gorebridge is just 1.5 miles away. Our visitors enjoy day trips to Edinburgh with free parking at the station. Trains to the center of town with all its attractions take 25 minutes. Return to the tranquil grounds of Arniston after a busy day or site seeing. Midlothian has many family attractions to also enjoy such as The Scottish Mining Museum and Rosslyn Chapel as well as a tour of Arniston House itself.

Lovely home on even more beautiful grounds!
The house was perfect for us, clean, spacious, and had all we needed. Set behind a beautiful manor house with grounds to walk on filled with rhododendrons in bloom. A short drive to Edinburgh for site seeing and the surrounding castles of the Lothians. This was perfect for our family!!
Beautiful and comfortable cottage in a great location.
lovely house in nice grounds
lovely house, nice grounds, near shops without bring too close, excellent for us visiting relations in Edinburgh and lanark. Our small grandaughter loved the sheep grazing next door.and being able to feed the wide variety of birds, maybe a little too much too often but she enjoyed it as she lives near London and doesnt have access to the countryside often. We all enjoyed a walk around the grounds. It felt secure and a supply of wood kept us cosyand it was very calming
Nice Stay to Explorer EB
All fine, frindly and nice, thanks 4 all.
Great place to stay
A lovely house in a beautiful setting nest to the stately home - which is really understated. Private garden ideal for kids and to birdwatchers. Having free reign to explore the stately home estate and gardens at your leisure ideal for adults and kids. We stayed as a family of 2 adults and 4 children, and the house is large with the open fire and the free wifi and large TV providing constant interest as well as the woodpeckers visiting the bird feeder. Reasonably close to the park and ride, but also the bus from the centre of edinburgh terminates in the village with a brisk walk up the lane meaning you can make it without having to pay for a taxi if you dont want to take the car on a night out and don't mind a walk. The owners are based on the estate so are close at hand if there are any problems. Made to feel very welcome and would recommend to groups of all ages.
Historische Unterkunft im Grünen
Wir hatten im Mai/Juni 2019 das Vergnügen hier unseren Urlaub zu verbringen.
Das Haus liegt unweit von Arniston House aber trotzdem abgeschieden und idyllisch. Es ist sehr geräumig, gemütlich eingerichtet, mit einem gleichzeitig historischen Charme. Besonders geeignet ist das Haus meiner Meinung nach für Familien mit Kindern und/oder Hund, sowie Menschen die Ruhe er Natur genießen wollen.
Vom Gardener´s House kann man sehr gut eine Reihe von Ausflugszielen erreichen, unter anderem Roslin Chapel, St. Andrews, Edinburgh, Loch Lomond, .... und sich dann Abends bei einem gemütlichen Feuer in einem der beiden Kamine entspannen.
Von der Besitzerin sind wir ebenfalls sehr angetan, bereits im Vorfeld unserer Reise hat sie uns verschiedenste Informationen zur Umgebung zusammengestellt und uns zu alle Fragen sehr schnell und gut beantwortet. Am Anreisetag kam sie dann sogar noch vorbei und brachte ein Paket mit noch genaueren Info`s (google-Karten, Öffnungszeiten von Institutionen nach denen wir gefragt hatten, etc.) vorbei.
Wir können Gardener´s House wärmstens empfehlen.
