Holiday Rental House
Welcome to our family house. We've been working hard to create a stylish, welcoming house for guests that wish to relax with friends & family either for a weekend break or a longer holiday. It's a spacious, Victorian, detached house where we live in between our guest visits. Our love of interiors has led us to bring this charming house into the 21st century whilst preserving the original Victorian features - ceiling roses, cornicing, original doors, tall ceilings, wooden floors and adding modern conveniences such as open plan space, light, limestone flooring and modern appliances into the kitchen and bathrooms. A warm and stylish interior helps you relax and enjoy your stay in comfort. Large beds with fresh, crisp bedlinen invite you to slumber and lighting at the touch of a button cre...Welcome to our family house. We've been working hard to create a stylish, welcoming house for guests that wish to relax with friends & family either for a weekend break or a longer holiday. It's a spacious, Victorian, detached house where we live in between our guest visits. Our love of interiors has led us to bring this charming house into the 21st century whilst preserving the original Victorian features - ceiling roses, cornicing, original doors, tall ceilings, wooden floors and adding modern conveniences such as open plan space, light, limestone flooring and modern appliances into the kitchen and bathrooms. A warm and stylish interior helps you relax and enjoy your stay in comfort. Large beds with fresh, crisp bedlinen invite you to slumber and lighting at the touch of a button creates a soothing atmosphere. Sheepskin rugs snuggle your toes as you climb in/out of bed. In the kitchen an American style fridge freezer with fresh water & ice dispenser provides lots of space for refreshments. Whilst the stone island unit invites you to gather around chatting or prepping your next delicious meal. It also has a handy round prep sink. Underfloor heating extends through the kitchen, dining, garden room and in the ensuite to Bedroom 1 adding a little luxury for your feet. Bi-fold doors lead you onto the terrace & private garden where there is a charcoal BBQ, dining table & chairs and outdoor relaxed seating to enjoy al fresco meals. A large modern wood burning stove in both the garden room and sitting room add wonderful ambience for when it's a cool evening. There are 3 bright and welcoming bathrooms and a seperate WC on ground floor. The private courtyard garden at the rear provides a mediterranean vibe space to relax whilst also providing a lovely airy feel to the house as gorgeous light filters through. Dimmable lights throughout the house create just the ambience you wish. Easy to use window shutters on original large, sash windows operate throughout the house for creating cosy nights in. There are 2 Freeview TV's for viewing choice, a 6ft pool table in the snug and a Yamaha keyboard for anyone who enjoys playing some tunes. There are fun board games and card games too. The house is south facing so lots of lovely natural light bounces around throughout the day. More

About the neighbourhood
Eskbank is steeped in history & borders Dalkeith a town which grew out of agriculture. Coal-mining expanded in the 18th, 19th & early 20th Century and the town grew. In the 19th century Dalkeith became the main grain market in Scotland. Dalkeith Country House owned by the Duke of Buccleuch has wonderful parkland to explore. At Newbattle Abbey, you can take a tour of this former Cistercian monastery and discover more about its 900 year history. Several beautiful golf courses surround Eskbank including Newbattle Golf Course, Broomieknowe Golf Course and Kings Acre. You can cycle along the Penicuik to Dalkeith Walkway - part of the National Cycle Network Route. Eskbank is a great location for exploring Edinburgh City and Roslyn Chapel
Getting around
Eskbank Station links you to the Borders in 30 minutes or within seconds of the house you can jump on the No.3 bus to take you into Edinburgh, it runs every 10 minutes. Of course you can call a taxi to take you to the throbbing buzz of Festival life too ! The A1 is 3 mins away by car leading you to East Lothian beaches and Superb Links Golf courses of Gullane & North Berwick. The A720 just 2 mins away leads you towards M8 to Glasgow. The historic town of St Andrews is only a 40 min drive away and the beautiful V & A museum in Dundee is just an hour away.
