Drylaw House

Drylaw House is not the kind of house you expect to find in the middle of a capital city. As you make your way through residential streets you will find an unassuming gateway, that leads you down a long tree lined driveway to a stunning Georgian mansion house, surrounded by a walled garden.

Hot-tub available

Sleeps up to 24 people

The details

You instantly forget where you are when you arrive at Drylaw House as it feels like you have been transported to the middle of the countryside. With mature trees and landscaped gardens all around, you are not overlooked; Drylaw really is Edinburgh’s best-kept secret.


Built in 1718 as a replacement for Old Drylaw House, which is now a ruin in the grounds, the newer property is a beautifully symmetrical early Georgian house, with the back as impressive as the front. Enjoy alfresco dining or a game of croquet in the beautiful gardens, or relax in the hot tub with a glass of bubbles after a busy day of sightseeing or shopping.


This house is ideal for anyone wanting to explore Edinburgh. Drylaw House is only 10 minutes in a car or a taxi from the city centre; alternatively, you can hop on a bus at the end of the drive. Taxis vary in price, but there is lots of competition with private hire firms and Uber.


Drylaw House is exceptionally spacious, with two TV rooms and even two kitchens; there are plenty of places to escape for some quiet time, with a good book and a G&T. The house lends itself to all occasions, family holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, wellbeing retreats and corporate away days.
