Faside Estate nr Edinburgh


Gateside is the second of our self catering holiday accommodation within the grounds of Faside Estate. The stone barn was previously used for agricultural storage before being converted in 1996 into self catering holiday accommodation. Within the shared grounds there is almost an acre of woodland a quarter of a century old and a small woodland pond. There is a shared barbeque area and picnic bench for enjoyable summer afternoons and evenings. The gardens are surrounded by a beech hedge and have a small orchard, where you will often find our black rock chickens. There is ample parking adjacent to the property.


The ground floor accommodation comprises a double bedrooms, a twin room and a family bathroom with bath and handheld shower. The floors throughout this level are of beautiful terracotta tiling and wood flooring is used on the upper level and compliments the exposed beams.Both sets of beds are antiques and we take great pride in the furnishing of the properties.

Upstairs is a large open plan living area with a kitchen comprising of electric cooker/hob, fridge, microwave, ample storage and all the mod cons. We provide free wi-fi in the property and a digibox plus DVD player is are also provided. There is a washing machine with integral dryer in the property. There is a dining table which seats four, perfect for enjoying your evening meals.

The focal point of the living area is the full height window which boasts stunning panoramic views at all times of day through all the seasons. From here you can see the Forth Rail Bridge, Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh and the coast of Fife. The property sits next to the castle itself and has the full benefits of two and a half acres of garden including an orchard and sitting areas.

The property is perfectly located for those who enjoy the tranquillity of being in the countryside whilst only being a quick dash from Edinburgh and the Lothian. The properties are self contained and Gateside is the perfect home away from home.

We have also pulled together in information and recommendations on local museums, towns and golf courses. You can also follow us on Facebook to stay up-to-date with Festivals and events in Edinburgh and Scotland.
