Thank you very much for your cooperation and patience during the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.  We are delighted to be welcoming back Holiday Cottage guests.  In our collective fight against COVID-19 we have put in a number of measures to protect the safety of our visitors and staff.  Following a full risk assessment and in line with the Scottish Government guidance we have an Enhanced Cleaning Protocol in place.  This includes a 2 phased practise of cleaning and disinfecting.  Our thorough enhanced protocol has been developed and guided by the recently published Association of Scotland Self-Caterers document.

Please contact us if you would like to see our full Risk Assessment; our Enhanced Cleaning Protocol with Check List is available to download on this page. Further measures include contactless check-in using key boxes and digital information manuals.  If you have further concerns or queries please do get in touch.

We have also relaxed our booking terms and conditions.  Holidaymakers who cancel at least 14 days before check-in will get back 100% of the amount that they’ve paid. Updated 16/09/2020

Accommodation at Arniston

Arniston Estate currently has five delightful holiday cottages available to rent. Visitors enjoy the best of both worlds staying in beautiful grounds in the tranquil countryside, but central Edinburgh is just short trip away.

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, a spa and shops 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 or a private tour of the house can be booked on request.
