Apartment The Lauderdale at Thirlestane Castle
Thirlestane Castle, Lauder, TD2 6RU, United Kingdom –
Experience staying in a Scottish Castle in spacious, luxurious surroundings. The apartment has a beautifully eclectic mix of contemporary furniture and original items from the castle collections including dramatic portraits to reflect the heritage of the building.
The castle was first built in 1590 and has been the home of the Maitland family ever since. They still live in a private wing of the building today. In the 1980s the main part of the castle was gifted to a charitable trust and all income from the accommodation goes into restoring and maintaining the building for future generations. There are five apartments in total, each individually designed with their own character, but all in the South Wing of the castle. They can be taken individually or as a group for larger parties.
The apartment is just 10-minutes' walk from the charming town of Lauder. Here you will find a number of shops including convenience stores, butcher, bakery, delicatessen and fruit and veg shop. There are also several pubs, a cafe/gallery and a restaurant. The Scottish Borders is so popular because of the sheer range of activities packed into such a small and accessible region - historic houses and castles, exciting festivals, arts and crafts, delicious local produce and miles of rolling hills, beautiful valleys and the Berwickshire coastline. For those that love the outdoors there is a variety of different activities available close at hand including horse riding, exhilarating cycling routes, fishing, golf and spectacular walking – the Southern Upland Way crosses the Thirlestane Estate. There is a small community leisure centre in Lauder which has a fully equipped gym that is available on a ‘pay as you go’ basis. The Scottish Borders is also renowned for its variety of crafts and is famous for producing quality textiles such as tweed, cashmere and tartan. Take a visit to a traditional workshop and workers will be more than happy to demonstrate their skills.
