Gorton House and Cottages, Edinburgh, Scotland

Sleeps 2 - 33 15 Bedrooms 16 Dining 33 Venue Capacity

Intimate wedding celebration venue for 33 guests with guest accommodation near Edinburgh

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Gorton House and Cottages, Edinburgh, Scotland, sleeps 2 - 33 in 15 bedrooms.

Edinburgh’s famous Prince’s Street and Edinburgh Castle are only 20 minutes drive away and the city provides all the attractions expected from Scotland’s capital, yet within 5 miles of the rural setting of these holiday cottages are the sporting facilities of 8 golf courses, river and loch fishing, pony trekking, a dry-ski slope and 3 leisure centres with swimming pools.
The Penicuik to Dalkeith walk/cycle track passes the gates of Gorton House, while the Pentland Hills Regional Park provides the backdrop and is readily accessible.
West, Mid, and East are all self contained holiday houses, but communicating doors allow this property to be opened up to provide “large group accommodation” for up to 19 guests under one roof. Adding the 17 bed spaces from the smaller holiday cottages, Gorton House and Cottages can accommodate up to a total of 33 guests.
Orchard Cottages were built in 2002 to match the character of the nearby historic Gorton House. All have south-facing views into The Walled Garden and are named after the fruit trees grown in the particular area in which they are situated.
Each has its own spacious garden and private parking area. A short walk around Gorton grounds promises stunning views over Roslin Glen towards the Pentland Hills and surrounding countryside.
