Pilrig House - The Balfour Apartment (Sleeps 4 max.)

Perfect for: One or two couples, 3 adults; or 2 adults with older children (over age of 7)

Our lovely 4-star graded, 2-bedroom 'Balfour Apartment' is within Pilrig House - an A-listed, 17th-century Scottish townhouse (built in 1638), which has a distinguished history and a wonderful literary connection with Robert Louis Stevenson - it was his mother's family's home. RLS, as a child, visited and played in the gardens here - he mentions Pilrig House in many of his novels and letters, eg Kidnapped and Catriona.

An Enviably Peaceful Park Location

Pilrig House is uniquely located in a tranquil park, yet it is only a short stroll or 5 minutes by bus to Edinburgh's city centre and all the main attractions. Guests can enjoy sitting in the private garden, which offers secluded seating areas and is teeming with birds and squirrels - a wonderfully tranquil retreat, away from traffic noise.

A Treasure of an Apartment

Occupying a commanding second-floor position in Pilrig House, the Balfour Apartment offers impressive views of the entire park and front gardens, plus Edinburgh skyline, from the two window-seats in the spacious living-room.

The Accommodation

The interior is extremely comfortable & beautifully furnished: L-shaped oak-floored hall, wonderfully spacious living-room with designated dining area, double-aspect windows; two bedrooms - both doubles (1 with double bed and the other with super king-sized bed that can be separated to twins); a fully-equipped kitchen; and, a luxurious, fully tiled bathroom with spacious walk-in shower cabinet, heated towel rail and shaver point.

FREE Parking

Rare for Edinburgh city center rentals, we offer the bonus of a FREE allocated parking space in a safe private car park to the rear of the house.

A Home-Away-From Home: Included in the Price

FREE Unlimited High-Speed Broadband Wi-Fi internet access (you can prebook a laptop should you want to leave yours at home), fine bedlinen, Egyptian cotton towels, all utilities - heating & electricity (no hidden costs). And, on arrival, refreshment tray, fresh flowers, crystal decanter of whisky, Scottish fudge, shortbead and fruit bowl; luxury Scottish toiletries; fluffy towelling robes/slippers, full Welcome, Places to Visit, Restaurant and Edinburgh Tour Packs, up-to-date Tourist information file, telephone (FREE local & national calls & with telephone answer service), Pilrig House postcards, bookmarks & stationery; a selection of novels, Edinburgh guidebooks/ maps/DVDs, AA-Touring Atlas, board games, binoculars, CDs/DVDs, and many other thoughtful extras.

The Owners

We - Debbie and Philip, the Scottish owners - live in Pilrig House and personally warmly welcome all our guests, and are on-hand throughout your stay to offer advice and assistance, if required or wanted!

Our Reviews

We could add hundreds of 'Owner-Added Reviews' from our apartment Guestbook, but we prefer to let previous guests review us and award us their star grading on VRBO. We hope this reassures you as to the authenticity of all the reviews you read. On our own website, you can also read in excess of another 150 independent guest reviews, and view some typical comments left in the apartment's Guestbook.

Conditions

Open all year. The apartment is non-smoking, but you are welcome to smoke outside, and, sorry, no pets.

Payment

For bookings of 7 nights or less, we ask for payment on booking. For bookings exceeding 7 nights, we ask for 50% payment on booking, and 50% is due 8 weeks before your stay.

To book, send in a Booking Form via our website. On receipt, we send you a Booking Confirmation followed by a secure online payment request via CardSave; you can pay by credit or debit card. On receipt of payment authorisation, we always send a payment receipt.

Cancellation Policy

We ask all guests to read our clear Terms & Conditions page on our own website.

Rates

Please view our extremely competitive nightly rates & reduced weekly rates on our owner's website (NOT the 'per person per night' rate which we feel is disingenuous as it does not give the actual min. price per night or per week).

Discounts (on nightly rates) for longer stays:

2 weeks: 15%

3 weeks: 20%

4 weeks or longer: 25% (we are flexiblle and can offer bigger discounts here if for a long stay in low season - do ask!)

Note: if your party comprises 2-3 people and the Balfour Apartment is already booked for the dates you want, do look at our Park and Garden Apartments' availability!

About The Owner

Readers, we liked it so much we got married here - here we are several years and several pounds on...

Philip is a retired mechanical engineer, who travelled the world as a naval engineer for many years - living in Mexico & Belize for periods of time. He is an amateur historian & has amazing local & Scottish historical knowledge... and, is also a keen 'treasure hunter' - goes off frequently to local sites with his metal detector. I am an ex-copy editor who worked for over 20 years in the field of publishing, & then on a freelance basis as an editor/proofreader. We both enjoy travel, books, films &, life in general. We decided, after meeting, that we couldn't bear to sell Philip's apartment in Pilrig House - it was just so special, & so we decided to turn it into a rental apartment. A year later, with great joy, we moved back into the house ourselves, then we purchased another apartment for renovation and rental, and so it just grew over the years since we started up. We have made many great friends, and still gain enormous joy and satisfaction in welcoming visitors here from around the world. It is also lovely that so many people come back time and time again.

Our emphasis, right from the start, was to create incredibly clean & exceptionally comfortable, accommodation, with in excess of the usual facilities found in vacation rentals – & to maintain this high standard. We also wanted to ensure we met our guests’ needs, and so listened to our visitors and took on board, almost without exception, all comments and suggestions over the years. We always personally offer a warm welcome, and are really pleased to be able to provide further support your stay, if it is wanted! On arrival, we take you into the apartment, showing you all the need-to-know things, and will always take as long as you want to answer all your questions – it is nice to meet the owner & to know we are on-hand should you need us & not worry that you are dealing with an anonymous third party

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2006

Why The Owner chose Leith

Well - there's the fact the Pilrig House is utterly unique as an historic 17th-century townhouse in Edinburgh, then there's the lovely location, and the parkland and Edinburgh skyline views... And the peace! Then, there's the wonderful ambience in the house itself - it really is special. And, the private parking, the beautiful gardens... there is so much to enjoy about living here. We just couldn't replicate what Pilrig House offers if we searched the length and breadth of Edinburgh. And the fact that we can walk into the centre of Edinburgh in 15 mins, or take a bus right outside the park... more than anything, we love the feeling of living in the country while living in the city.

And, the centre of Edinburgh is under a mile away – most guests walk there, and sometimes take a bus home at the end of the day… and describe their pleasure at returning to the peace and tranquillity of Pilrig House. Great shops are almost on your doorstep – supermarkets, cafes, bars, restaurants…all within easy walking distance.

In each apartment, the living-rooms & bedrooms have park and/or garden views – a lovely change from looking out onto city streets or other buildings! The house’s history also gives it a special feel – some people liken it to staying in a Scottish castle… Robert Louis Stevenson’s mother lived in Pilrig House and he visited here often as a child – we include his novels in all three apartments, so you can read extracts that refer to Pilrig House, and imagine living in another time… One national newspaper journalist wrote after staying here that the house has a ‘timelessness’ that made for instant relaxation….

We have many US & Canadian guests who come back every year, & European guests who visit at least 6 times per year – and they have stayed previously in the best hotels and now choose to stay here… Our Guestbook comments and reviews on all independent sites have been 100% positive - hopefully reassuring you of what you will find when you come to stay.

What makes this apartment unique

All of the above! We awaken to birdsong, can gaze out our windows and see the park in all seasons in all its beauty, or sit in the garden to the side of the house in total privacy and enjoy the tranquillity, and read a book... We often walk down to the Port of Leith, where there are great restaurants right on the waterfront, and grab a bite to eat. Everything we need is close-by - shops, transport links, restaurants, Edinburgh's main train station... and, there are beautiful drives to the East Lothian countryside and coastal trail, including some charming villages and historic castles - within a half-hour's drive. There are also 22 stunning golf-courses along this coastline, eg Gullane, North Berwick, Craigielaw, Muirfield - for golf fans!

Another great bonus is the fact that we can offer guests free parking in a private car park directly to the rear of the property – this is incredibly rare in Edinburgh – most properties have ‘metered’ parking on a street outside their property, which never guarantees a space, and is incredibly expensive – it means you have to top up the metre every couple of hours!

Philip and I often walk to the ‘Shore’ area of Leith, on the waterfront – which is Edinburgh’s port – a 5-10 minute walk from Pilrig House – it has great restaurants and bistros. You can also use your membership card to visit the Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s ‘The Vaults’ premises here – even if you don’t like whisky – a great place to have a bar lunch in the oldest building in Leith.

Can't recommend highly enough

Can't recommend highly enough
  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the Balfour apartment for a week in July so that we could visit Edinburgh and also travel to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. The apartment was brilliant - beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly want. The location was fantastic - situated in the middle of Pilrig Park, so you wouldn't know that you were a few minutes away from the city centre and Leith. Everywhere was within a short bus ride or longer walk.
Philip and Debbie were great hosts and very helpful in suggesting things to do and places to eat.
All the family had a brilliant time and would love to revisit. We would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Edinburgh

A Hidden Gem!

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed with my family in the Balfour Apartment at Pilrig House for a week in August of this year. We were in Edinburgh to see theater at the Fringe, and in particular to see our son who was performing in one of the many (thousands?) of productions. The Balfour Apartment, a two bedroom, fully appointed suite, was delightful. It was serenely quiet, comfortable, beautifully furnished and exceedingly well supplied with absolutely anything and everything you might need - from rain ponchos to whisky guides. The owners have thought of absolutely everything. We enjoyed staying a little out of the fray of the fringe and if you are a foodie, Leith is full of wonderful spots, both high end and more casual. Our best meal the entire time we were in Edinburgh was at Fishers in Leith. An evening at the King's Wark, also in Leith, was a close second. Mike, the recommended airport transport fellow and all around guide, was a gem. We spent a day with him in the Highlands. He was both knowledgeable and delightful. I would highly recommend Pilrig House and Mike. We will certainly return.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review Sarah - and will also pass on your comments to the lovely Mike, who will be 'tickled pink' I am sure. So pleased you enjoyed our location - and the wonderful eateries at the Shore, on the waterfront. Hope we see you next year! Best Wsihes to you and the family, Debbie & Philip x

Incredible Vacation Spot

  • 5 out of 5
My Partner and I were celebrating one of life's milestones and we were so glad we chose the hospitality of Debbie and Philip who made our stay in Edinburgh incredible. From the fact that the apartment had everything we needed to feel at home and a place to relax after days of exploration of the sights throughout Edinburgh. To sharing their knowledge of the city and surroundings to make the best of a few days exploring the city. . We found that using Pilrig House as our base it was very easy getting throughout the city using public transportation.
Thank you for making a "special" Birthday even better.

Best Location since Years

  • 5 out of 5
We visited Scotland for 2 weeks and stayed the first week in Edinburgh Pilrig House. An excellent choice as we know yet. The apartment was the best we rent for the last Years. It is equipped perfectly with so much love for details and warmly welcome to the guests. We cannot think of any missing equipment to make our stay in Pirig House unforgettable. Never have so much very good information’s about Scotland and its interesting sites to visit. Thank you so much Debbi and Philipp for your hospitality, we felt like at home. It was not the last stay in this beautiful location in Scotland.

Just Perfect

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I just returned from two wonderful weeks in Edinburgh. We stayed at the Pilrig House in the Balfour Apartment for both weeks and it couldn't have been more perfect. The apartment was so lovely. Spotless, beautifully decorated, quiet, and was appointed with everything we could possibly need. The amenities were top notch.

Philip and Debbie are incredibly kind and generous hosts and they take a genuine interest in their guests. When we first arrived at the house, Philip was standing in the driveway waiting for us. Just about every day we would find ourselves in long, interesting conversations with him. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Scotland and told us some great stories. Our first evening there we were going to walk to the grocery store and Philip, who happened to be going there himself, offered to give us a ride. He ended up giving us an impromptu tour of the city! On another day, Debbie, on her way to go shopping, led us on a drive into a couple of the nearby villages, pointing out things we might be interested in going back to see. She also recommended some wonderful restaurants.

The location of Pilrig House is perfect. Pilrig Park is beautiful and we enjoyed sitting in the window seats in our apartment and watching all the people and dogs playing late into the evening. It's a pretty quick walk to Leith and just a short bus ride to city centre (the number 11 bus stop is right on the other side of the park). We rented a car while there (best decision!) and the location was perfect as a "home base". We took day trips into the country and surrounding villages and then would come back every evening to cook dinner and relax. I joked that all I needed was my dog and some more clothes and I could have stayed forever! We fell in love with Scotland and the people and hope to go back to Edinburgh and the Pilrig House one day soon. We wouldn't stay anywhere else! Thank you, Philip and Debbie, for a wonderful experience!

Owner's Response: Hi Wendy & Charro,

What a lovely review - thank you. As we said at the time, we wished you could just stay and become part of the Pilrig clan! It was so nice having you stay here and, Philip has just said over my shoulder, that you were a delight to chat with! I think he missed your daily chatterings when you'd left... so, you'll just need to come back again - soon!

Little Gem

  • 5 out of 5
Looking through all the reviews for Pilrig's House, this place had a lot to live up to and it certainly did from the moment we arrived which was met with a beautiful bouquet of flowers, chocolates and Champagne for my wife who was celebrating her 50th Birthday. The generosity of the owners was beyond compare and the apartment itself is a true home from home plus some more. As self catering goes this has got to be the best it can get. Situated within easy walking distance of Central Edinburgh and very close to the bus services. Many excellent eating places within 10 minutes walk. If you are looking for that extra bit of comfort and luxury then you can't go wrong and with the lovely owners on hand this was a very memorable and thoroughly enjoyable break.


We stayed here as a family for my wife's 50th Birthday.

At Pilrig House, you are in the heart of the city just 15-20 minutes' walk (1.2 miles) from Princes Street and all of Edinburgh's main attractions - Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, the National Gallery of Scotland, the Museum of Scotland, Holyrood Park, the Royal Mile - to name a few. But, you'd be forgiven for thinking that you're in the middle of the Scottish countryside.

Why? To begin with, there's the greenery. People tell us that staying in Pilrig House is like staying on a country estate. And then there's the peace. Our parkland location is wonderfully tranquil, and the House's thick stone walls ensure that any noise has a long way to go before it disturbs your relaxation.

From Pilrig House, you are also a 10-minute walk from the trendy 'Shore' area of Leith - Edinburgh's historic port area, which boasts many highly recommended wine bars & restaurants on the waterfront, including three Michelin-star restaurants. It is also where The Royal Yacht Britannia is berthed - the Queen's decommissioned sailing vessel.

We are also located a 15-min stroll from:

- Edinburgh's Botanical Gardens;

- Newhaven Harbour - where you can dine overlooking the harbour and sea at the Loch Fyne Seafood Restaurant;

- the Playhouse Theatre;

- a multi-screen cinema.

We are located within a 5-minute walk of the nearest bus-stop (buses travel to the centre of town every few minutes), gym/leisure centre with pool, supermarket, post office, Edinburgh Woollen Mill & Clan Tartan Centre, auction house, laundrette, church, Martin Wishart's Cook School (Michelin-star restaurant owner), Leith School of Art, ATMs, riverside walks & cycle paths, and a large selection of other independent shops and restaurants.

Pilrig House is also a 15-min walk or 5 mins by bus from the 'village' of Stockbridge - which has a fab weekly farmers' market and a great range of independent shops/cafe's and charity shops - for those of you who like browsing for antiquarian books and bargains! From Stockbridge, there is also a lovely stretch of the riverside walkway that takes you through the historic Dean village and brings you to the Gallery of Modern Art, and directly across the road, the Dean Gallery (Modern 2).

With the added bonus of FREE parking (very rare for Edinburgh!), you also have the advantage of being able to take some beautiful drives in the nearby countryside, or even further afield - we have a specially created file in each apartment for those people with cars - which gives great recommendations of places to visit within a 2-hour boundary of Edinburgh, and includes maps and photographs. Our AA-touring atlas also comes in handy, and you are welcome to take it with you on trips.

If you don't have a car, and don't want to go on organised bus tours, we are delighted to be able to offer the services of a personal driver during your stay - at very competitive rates!

We have also negotiated 'fixed fares' with a local cab company to places of interest near Edinburgh.

Membership of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Guests of Pilrig House can enjoy full membership of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society when they stay here - this enables up to 4 adults to dine in their fabulous premises - in Leith and in central Edinburgh, and partake of the most wonderful sinlge malts - casked and bottled exclusively for the Society.

Golfers

East Lothian

Pilrig House is a great central base for golfers – wthin a half-hour drive along the lovely East Lothian coastline, you will be spolied for choice of courses to play: Craigielaw, Gullane, Archerfield, Muirfield, Dunbar, North Berwick – to name but a few of the outstanding 22 courses to pick from.

St Andrews and the East ‘Neuk’ of Fife

We are only an hour-and-a-half’s drive from St Andrews for St Andrews Old Course and King’s Barns, as well as the ‘East Neuk’ of Fife courses en route to St Andrews, eg Lundin Links.

Gleneagles, Carnoustie and Troon

We are an hour’s drive from Gleneagles; an hour-and-a-half from Carnousite; and c. 2 hours from the Ayrshire coast for Troon Old Course and Turnberry.

Book Our Golf Driver Service

If you want to relax, and be collected at Pilrig House and taken to and from the courses you want to play, we are delighted to recommend, on booking, a personal driver service with an outstanding driver/golf expert – (at extremely competitive rates). Mike will collect you at Pilrig House (as early in the morning as you want to set off) in his air-conditioned, fully insured and extremely comfortable people carrier and take you wherever you want to play. He can also take you further afield, and arrange overnight stays for you. In fact, where golf is concerned, he will take you as far and for as much time as you fancy.
