Lime Cottage, Chestnut Cottage and Sycamore Cottage form part of the estate forester's' cottages in days gone by and are situated on the stunning Lime Avenue Drive to Arniston House.
The properties are south facing terraced cottages and have been decorated and furnished with a truly contemporary twist. Hidden away in a tranquil courtyard with views over farmland to the north and a courtyard to the south, these renovated cottages offer a real opportunity to relax and explore the surrounding area as well as the grounds of Arniston House during your stay. There is a fenced area of garden nearby for the use of our visitors and pets are very welcome.
Locally there are many activities all within easy access. Arniston House itself is a William Adam Georgian Stately Home which is still lived in by the Dundas family today. It is open for guided tours from May to mid-September. Local pubs and restaurants such as The Sun Inn or Papermill Restaurant are a short drive or taxi ride away. For families there are local attractions such as Dalkeith Country Park, Ryze trampoline Park and The Scottish Mining Museum.
A 25 minute train ride from our local station takes you direct to central Edinburgh with its 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. We are located 11 miles south of central Edinburgh. Lime Cottage is very much enjoyed by visitors who enjoy the peace of the countryside but also enjoy day trips to Edinburgh.
