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!)

We also offer reduced nightly and weekly rates for 1 or 2 people staying if both other apartments are already booked - please enquire.

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

THE PERFECT WAY TO START OUR HONEYMOON

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I arrived to the Pilrig House for the first leg of our honeymoon and...WOW!!!!!!!! We were welcomed with open arms by Debbie and Philip, who are the epitome of wonderful, gracious host! Debbie met us for an early morning arrival and her warmth and kindness instantly made us feel right at home - it was the type of reception typically expected from only family! Seeing that we were in need of a nap after a long flight, Debbie showed us around the apartment, highlighting all of the need-to-know items, and told us to contact her once we were settled if we had any questions or additional needs. Surprisingly, we didn't have to contact Debbie or Philip for any additional needs, because the apartment is equipped with every luxury a traveler could want!

The apartment is exactly like the pictures and is spotlessly clean. The fresh fruit, coffee and teas, and other goodies were wonderful to have upon arrival, along with the slippers and cotton robes. Each guest room had comfy beds with soft linens and plenty of pillows and warm blankets to snuggle into. The bathroom has lovely scented soaps and lotions, and we especially loved having the towel warmer to heat the plush towels. The kitchen is stocked with all the tools and gadgets a cook might need - from colanders and vegetable peelers to baking dishes and bottle openers...they have it all. In the living room, we found the local magazines stocked full of great articles and information about Scotland, and utilized the User Guides full of Philip and Debbie's recommendations, maps, menus, and much more. We also enjoyed strolling through the house gardens and evening walks around Pilrig Park.

We can’t think of anything we would change about our stay at the Pilrig House. The warmth and welcomed feeling of our arrival lasted throughout our entire visit; it was truly like we were staying with family! Debbie and Phillip are such special people, a wonderful first impression to Scotland and her people. So, do yourself a favor and make reservations here – you will not regret it! We’re already planning our return visit…

EXCELLENT STAY - BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT - ALL AMENITIES

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the apartment for 9 nights in august (festival time) with our little daughter. The apartment is really beautiful, very quiet and clean. You're in the city but it seems to be in the country as you have the park in front of your windows. Supermarket + bus stops close to the building.We are very used to travel and rent apartments all over the world, but honestly this is far away the best one for the amenities we found: kitchen stuff, books+guides+maps, towels+linens+bathrobes, dvds, welcoming food. Simply perfect. The hosts were very helpful with their suggestions for excursions (we had a rented car) and even more to solve our problems (we had a problem with the car). Very recommendable. You feel at home at first sight.

FATHER/DAUGHTER HOME AWAY FROM HOME VACATION!

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at Pilrig House Balfour Apartment was one of the highlights of our trip to Scotland/Ireland. On arrival Philip was there to greet us and help us get settled. He even took us for a quick tour around the city and took us to get our grocery's for the week. The apartment was so well stocked with everything one could think of or need. The location was perfect we walked to dinner and up and back from the Royal Mile. While in the planning stages Debbie was so quick to respond to every email in helping with any question we had to make our trip memorable. I cannot say enough about our experience at the Pilrig House, our host Philip and Debbie are one of a kind hosts!!

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.
