Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
House of Cockburn, Balerno, Edinburgh, Scotland, sleeps 4-14 in 9 bedrooms.
House of Cockburn offers an ideal home for those seeking privacy and the idyllic countryside within a stones throw from Edinburgh city centre. The house sleeps up to 18 in total, including East Wing which is a self contained apartment sleeping 4, ideal for any group members requiring a little more privacy. We are children and pet friendly but would appreciate muddy paws to be kept off the furniture.
Peaceful, elegant and very comfortable, House of Cockburn is the perfect location for family gatherings. Our home is also the perfect location from which to explore Edinburgh and of course the Edinburgh Festival including the Military Tattoo and Festival Fringe.
For celebrations, we have a family-run company that organises events in a large converted barn on site which can hold up to 60. Ideal for weddings and parties, with catering, music and an atmospheric, fully licensed bar with a log stove. The seasonal restaurant specialises in locally grown vegetables and free range, rare breed pork which is all grown and reared here on the farm.
At the foot of the Pentland Hills, there's easy access to walking, mountain biking, numerous golf courses, fishing and horse riding. Or just relax and enjoy the gardens, a game of tennis or croquet, or explore the more formal garden and the river. Free range eggs can be collected daily from our hens and we have 2 very friendly pet pigs and donkeys who all love attention and apples!
Our local village Balerno has a post office, hairdresser, well equipped grocery shop, 2 churches and a community high school with an excellent swimming pool. Balerno also has a handful of very good small restaurants.
Our excellent location is very much in the heart of the country yet only 15 mins from Edinburgh Airport, not on the flight path! There is also a very efficient and regular bus service which runs from Balerno (1 mile away) to Edinburgh city centre every 20 minutes. And Glasgow is only 45 minutes away!
We live on site so will always be about to help you with any queries or bookings, restaurant reservations or any other questions you may have, to ensure you have a very happy, hassle-free and memorable holiday.
