The finer details of our holiday apartment accommodation near Edinburgh.

holiday apartment living room

Our spacious living room


Merlindale holiday apartment is quite big! Unlike some holiday cottages, Merlindale’s rooms are very sizeable, whilst the extremely high quality furnishings and tasteful decor retain the coziness and ambience of a small cottage. In effect, the holiday apartment is ample for a family of four, but cozy enough for a honeymoon!

The apartment is on one floor, with a ground-floor entrance, and no internal steps, therefore it is wheelchair accessible. 

The gardens and immediate surroundings are teeming with wildlife! Take a look at this linked website which explores our grounds in much more detail:
