With exceptional views of the parkland, our unrivaled accommodation in the South Wing of Thirlestane Castle offers a unique opportunity to stay in a castle just 35 minutes south of Edinburgh. We currently have two self-catering apartments in this breath-taking romantic castle setting, a one-bedroom and a two-bedroom, all with en-suites, sleeping a total of six. The apartments are furnished with an eclectic mix of contemporary and original castle furniture and items from the collections including dramatic portraits. In 2019 we will be launching three new apartments bringing our total occupancy to eighteen.

We offer all of our guests complimentary tours of the castle as well as a number of tailored experiences. Should you wish, we can organise for a taxi service to and from the train station or the airport, an exclusive guided tour of the castle by a member of the Maitland family, food hampers or spa treatments to ensure your stay is as relaxed as possible. To supplement their stay guests can also book one of the State Rooms or our Victorian Kitchen for a special dinner or event. 

We can provide travel cots and high chairs if required for younger guests and there is also a playground close to the apartments within the grounds. Our apartments are also dog friendly and our extensive grounds are available for walks.

NEW FOR 2019
From early 2019, there will be five apartments within the castle able to comfortably sleep a total of 18 guests. The accommodation is a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments and one three-bedroom apartment all with en-suites. 

From February groups will then be able to take several of the apartments or book the whole of the South Wing with the option of the exclusive use of other areas of the castle for dining and socialising. We can provide a fully catered option for group bookings. Perfect for wedding parties or family celebrations!

These new apartments are open for bookings now. Please contact us for more details on or 01578 722430.
