For those seeking a private, idyllic getaway, yet within easy reach of Edinburgh and central Scotland, the Thatched Cottage at Hopetoun is the perfect location.
For the first time self-catering holiday cottages are available at Hopetoun with the highest standard of finishes and furnishings. Out-of-doors there are easily accessible cycleways and pathways allowing further exploration of the estate parkland, with Scotland's Finest Stately Home, Hopetoun House, nearby.
The Thatched Cottage is a truly fairytale setting for a holiday for two, yet only a few miles from Edinburgh and well placed to explore central Scotland. It is the quintessential hideaway for a couple celebrating a romantic escape or special anniversary. The location could not be more picturesque; a pretty stone cottage with authentic thatched roof in a sunny glade surrounded by woodland in the heart of the Hopetoun Estate. The Thatched Cottage is newly refurbished and available for the first time within Hopetoun Estate. Accommodation includes a beautiful, spacious sitting room with log fire, double bedroom with lovely views over woodland, a kitchen with every facility and a roomy, beautifully finished bathroom. Every room is furnished with care and style, in tune with the original character of the cottage and the heritage of Hopetoun.
You might be tempted never to leave the Thatched Cottage, but immediately out of doors are lovely woodland walks, cycle paths and the splendid Hopetoun House Stately Home, all waiting to be explored. In terms of a self-catering holiday cottage for two, the Thatched Cottage is just perfect.
The Cottage is ideally located for other parts of central Scotland with Edinburgh only 12 miles away. For a holiday location that combines a rural idyll with easily accessible city visits, Hopetoun is exceptional.
The cottage can be booked for 7 night stays only with the change over day being on a Friday. The price includes all fuel costs, linen and towels, and a welcome basket of produce from our farm shop will be there on arrival. You are also free to walk in the Hopetoun House Gardens during opening times and have a tour of Hopetoun House. Clay shooting can also be arranged at discounted rates for a group of 5 or more.
