East Lothian House

If you are looking for somewhere with a certain style and elegance then this lovely house could be the place. The Georgian property is now a superbly restored 5* venue which can be hired exclusively for events.  The house is situated in East Lothian, not far from Edinburgh, making this one of Scotland’s more accessible properties.

The facade of the house exudes a sense of grandeur but this mansion is most definitely a family home, where 12 generations of the family have lived over the centuries.  This wonderful sense of history permeates throughout the property.  Guests have arrived here and been entertained in style for hundreds of years, and will no doubt continue to do so for many more.  The staff are well used to providing professional and unobtrusive service, with a very welcome attention to detail and will ensure you and your guests are well looked after.  This is a superb choice for an event, as a corporate retreat, a celebratory house party or a romantic wedding venue.

With a choice of several reception rooms there is plenty of space for relaxing, working, partying or dining, whatever you are planning. Rooms are traditionally styled, many with open fires, giving a cosy feel. A downstairs Drawing room is perfect for relaxed entertaining whilst the Music room, a beautiful wood panelled room with ornate ceiling and huge feature windows overlooks the gardens. This room can be used for dancing too.

The house is licensed for weddings in several areas and if the weather is warm the picturesque gardens make a superb setting for an outdoor ceremony.  Taking exclusive use of this stunning mansion will ensure a unique occasion in your own stately home for the day.  If your numbers are large the venue can provide a fully equipped marquee in the sunken rose garden.  Enjoy drinks in the marble entrance hall to the house, mingle on the sweeping lawns before dining and dancing in the pretty marquee.  It will be an unforgettable occasion.

Corporate clients will find this property an impressive and elegant country retreat, ideal for Board meetings, shooting parties and team-building.  Secluded yet easily accessible from Edinburgh it offers huge grounds for activities as well as luxurious interiors, and the flexibility of the staff provide the ability to tailor the event exactly as you want it.

The individually designed bedrooms within the house are all decorated in a comforting country house style with charming fabrics and furnishings.  The 5* rating is evident here as well as in the bright and fresh bathrooms, many with roll-top baths for a period look.

The grounds here are utterly delightful, offering 100 acres of woodland and formal gardens to wander.  There is also plenty of space for activities on-site or nearby, from falconry to quad-biking to horse-riding, with many prestigious golf-courses on the door-step.

All in all this is a superb property, offering an elegant stately home experience in luxurious homely surroundings. An experience not to be missed.
