Overview of Gorebridge House

What Oliver loves…

  • Serene retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life - but with the comforts of Edinburgh only 9 miles away
  • Exclusive use of the house - no other groups whilst you stay
  • Located in its own 30 acre estate that you can explore during your stay, including a wild meadow and our own river

What you should know…

  • The house is difficult to find make sure you check the location before you set off
  • Only parking for 20 vehicles in the drive way

The Gorebridge House is located just 9 miles from Edinburgh in 30 acres of stunning natural Scottish countryside. In the shadow of the Pentland Hills, it offers guests the luxury and serenity of a country retreat with the advantage of good transport links to the capital - only 30 mins away by car.

Ideally suited to large group bookings, whether for a family party, office function stag or hen do, the house sleeps 22 in the eight main bedrooms on the first floor, with space for an additional 12 guests in three more bedrooms located on the lower ground floor. More than enough space for guests to enjoy a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Please note that there is an additional charge of £250 per stay for the use of the hot tub. This facility should be requested in advance so that the owners can prepare, fill and heat the hot tub in time for your arrival.

The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!
