Thirlestane Castle Apartments


With its fairy tale façade and its parkland surroundings, Thirlestane Castle is
the ultimate luxury retreat for a family gathering, group holiday or romantic couples’ getaway. Our unrivalled accommodation in the South Wing offers guests the unique opportunity to stay in a castle just 35 minutes south of Edinburgh.

The five-star-standard apartments in this breath-taking setting can be booked either individually or as a group and can sleep a total of sixteen people across eight individually designed bedrooms. All are furnished with a beautifully eclectic mix
of contemporary and original items from the castle collection including dramatic portraits and tactile soft furnishings. The castle can be let on a self-catered basis or groups can choose to be catered for in the castle’s Victorian Kitchen or in one of the State Rooms. All bedrooms have their own luxurious bathroom and each apartment has a well-equipped kitchen and relaxing living/dining space.

Thirlestane Castle is surrounded by acres
of tranquil parkland but is just 10 minutes walk from the charming town of Lauder. The castle is the perfect base to explore the wider Scottish Borders where there are a number of attractions to suit all members of the family. Explore the region’s heritage at one of the textile mills, marvel at the historic abbeys and explore the many grand houses and castles. The castle is also just 27 miles from the centre of Edinburgh for those looking to venture further afield from this beautiful corner of Scotland.

Winner of the UK Heritage Awards Wonderful Place to Stay category 2019.
