Built in the 1700s the Gardener's House is set into the old Walled Garden in the stunning grounds of Arniston House, a William Adam Stately Home. A secluded, picturesque two storey house with wood burning stove and open fire for winter or glass patio doors that open onto the walled garden for summer. Nearby there is Vogrie Country Park, Rosslyn Chapel, Temple Village, The Scottish Mining Museum and, for biking enthusiasts, Glentress Biking Trails all within easy access. Local pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops and spa are all a short drive away. An 11 mile trip to Edinburgh’s first class art galleries and museums, the capital’s eclectic mix of restaurants and bars plus its boutique shopping experience all adds up to a great day out. Alternatively fishing, horse riding, estate tours or a private tour of the house can be booked on request.

About Henrietta Dundas
Arniston Estate has been in my family since 1571. We still live on the estate today. Among other activities we now run four holiday cottages on the estate.
Henrietta Dundas purchased this House in 1750
Why Henrietta Dundas chose Gorebridge
Gardener's House is unique, secluded and steeped in history. Guests are invited to enjoy the beautiful grounds of Arniston House yet we are only 10 miles from the bustle of central Edinburgh and its mixture of culture, shops and nightlife.
What makes this House unique
The local train station at Gorebridge is just 1.5 miles away. Our visitors enjoy day trips to Edinburgh with free parking at the station. Trains to the center of town with all its attractions take 25 minutes. Return to the tranquil grounds of Arniston after a busy day or site seeing.

lovely house in nice grounds
lovely house, nice grounds, near shops without bring too close, excellent for us visiting relations in Edinburgh and lanark. Our small grandaughter loved the sheep grazing next door.and being able to feed the wide variety of birds, maybe a little too much too often but she enjoyed it as she lives near London and doesnt have access to the countryside often. We all enjoyed a walk around the grounds. It felt secure and a supply of wood kept us cosyand it was very calming
Nice Stay to Explorer EB
All fine, frindly and nice, thanks 4 all.
Great place to stay
A lovely house in a beautiful setting nest to the stately home - which is really understated. Private garden ideal for kids and to birdwatchers. Having free reign to explore the stately home estate and gardens at your leisure ideal for adults and kids. We stayed as a family of 2 adults and 4 children, and the house is large with the open fire and the free wifi and large TV providing constant interest as well as the woodpeckers visiting the bird feeder. Reasonably close to the park and ride, but also the bus from the centre of edinburgh terminates in the village with a brisk walk up the lane meaning you can make it without having to pay for a taxi if you dont want to take the car on a night out and don't mind a walk. The owners are based on the estate so are close at hand if there are any problems. Made to feel very welcome and would recommend to groups of all ages.
20 miles to beautiful East Lothian beaches.
Edinburgh airport 30 minutes drive. Car hire recommended.
11 miles to central Edinburgh. 1 mile from local town.
