Looking for a luxury bolthole in the Scottish Borders then we recommend you head to Thirlestane Castle’s newly unveiled self-catering apartment within the castle building. The new two-bedroom luxury apartment has been created within the Old Servants’ Quarters and is now available for short breaks alongside the existing one-bedroom Lauderdale Apartment.
The apartment has its own private access and exceptional views of the countryside, offering unrivalled accommodation, in a breath taking romantic castle setting. The rooms have been brought back to life and exquisitely renovated in the South Wing, an area of the castle that was once the old laundries which is nodded to in the design.
The apartment offers a truly authentic castle experience with an eclectic mix of contemporary and original castle furniture and items from the collections including dramatic portraits of former castle residents.
It consists of: a large, light-filled living area with a dining table and fully-equipped kitchen; one double bedroom with en-suite shower room; a second twin/double bedroom; and a separate bathroom. It is accessed from either the same level by the castle gardens or via a private staircase from the enclosed cobbled courtyard that guests are also able to use.
