Formerly the sculleries for Thirlestane Castle, this part of the South Wing has been beautifully transformed into a high-end one-bedroom apartment. Accessed from the mezzanine of the castle’s Cobbled Courtyard, guests look out over the castle gardens to the rear with double-height windows throughout. The traditional flagstone floor in the hallway is a reminder of the apartment’s past, as is the historic mangle which has been re-purposed into a beautiful hallstand.

The soft greens of the gardens outside have inspired the restoration of the space and link the bedroom with the natural beauty of its surroundings. The stunning sleigh bed and wardrobe were used by the Maitland family in their private rooms. Luxurious, heavy fabric frames the three tall windows as the room is flooded with dappled light through the nearby trees. Guests can enjoy the ultimate luxury in the extremely spacious bathroom and relax in the free-standing roll-top bath.

A warm and cosy feel is created in the sitting room with the red-earth toned walls and royal blue accents. As in the bedroom, a large portrait from the castle collection reflects the grandeur of the castle and brings a sense of history to the space. Guests are made to feel part of the Thirlestane family with personal photos in the hallway showing the Maitland family competing in the show-jumping and eventing competitions at several Olympic Games.

Completed in early 2019, this newly-refurbished apartment offers a cosy retreat for those wishing to explore the Scottish Borders.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
We welcome families and can provide travel cots and high chairs for our younger guests. There is a play area in the castle grounds that guests are welcome to use and a selection of toys and games are provided in the apartment. We are also dog friendly and are very happy for you to bring your four-legged friend with you to stay.

Lauder, Regno Unito

The apartment is just 10-minutes' walk from the pretty town of Lauder. Here you will find a number of shops including convenience stores, a butcher, bakery and fruit and veg shop. There are also several pubs, a cafe/gallery and a restaurant.

The Scottish Borders is so popular because of the sheer range of activities packed into such a small and accessible region - historic houses and castles, exciting festivals, arts and crafts, delicious local produce and miles of rolling hills, beautiful valleys and the Berwickshire coastline.

For those that love the outdoors there is a variety of different activities available close at hand including horse riding, exhilarating cycling routes, fishing, golf and spectacular walking – the Southern Upland Way crosses the Thirlestane Estate. There is a small community leisure centre in Lauder which has a fully equipped gym that is available on a ‘pay as you go’ basis.

The Scottish Borders is also renowned for its variety of crafts and is famous for producing quality textiles such as tweed, cashmere and tartan. Take a visit to a traditional workshop and workers will be more than happy to demonstrate their skills. There are several places throughout the Borders that offer visitor experiences including Lochcarron in Selkirk. The town of Hawick is the home of cashmere and there are several mills to visit here along with the Borders Distillery.

Lots of the local attractions have children’s programmes such as Paxton House, Bowhill and Edinburgh Castle and many of the local towns have special places for small people. Watch out for Pot-a-Doodle Do near Berwick, the Scottish Borders Donkey Sanctuary near St Boswells and the opportunity to monkey around swinging between the trees at Go Ape near Pebbles.

During the summer, the town’s main event is the Lauder Common Riding Festival where today’s residents commemorate the times when their forbearers patrolled the boundaries of their settlements on horseback. Join in the week-long festival and watch as standard-bearers elected by the townspeople enact ancient ceremonies and experience the exhilaration of seeing hundreds of riders galloping past amid a flurry of banners.

Hi, my name's Jacqueline and I look after all the accommodation bookings at Thirlestane Castle. The castle is still a family home but the South Wing has been converted into luxury accommodation providing guests with the ultimate castle stay experience. There's always someone at the castle to answer any questions you have. I look forward to welcoming you to Thirlestane and hope that you will fall in love with the Scottish Borders as much as I have!
