Penicuik Estate

Penicuik Estate is open all year round. If we have to close specific areas of the estate due to safety reasons, we will update this on our social media channels.

Old Penicuik House is open from 8am until 4pm Monday – Friday. Weekend opening hours will be reduced and/or by appointment. All times are subject to weather conditions. If you are making a special trip to visit Old Penicuik House please call us in advance to check opening times.

With prior arrangement the main gates can be opened to enable vehicles to drop-off and pick-up visitors in front of Old Penicuik House.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome. Please be mindful this is a working estate with livestock and wildlife, so dogs should be kept on a lead at all times.

You are welcome to take horses on suitable trails throughout the estate.

We encourage photography on our beautiful estate, and would love it if you tagged your masterpieces on our social media channels @PenicuikEstate

We will require card details to be held on our system for the duration of your stay for the security deposit. The amount varies between £250 – £1500 depending on the property reserved. We will only charge your card in the event of damage to the property or its contents after we have informed you.

We can arrange these in advance. Please let us know when you are making your reservation.

We welcome up to two well-behaved dogs in all of our rental properties.

We ask that they stay off all furniture and please pick up after your dog before you leave. Unfortunately, if they cause damage, we will need to recoup the cost.

All our properties have charging points. For safety reasons, charging an electrical vehicle using any of the internal or external 13A sockets at the property is strictly forbidden.

All accommodation has complimentary super-fast Wi-Fi so you can stream your favourite shows or work remotely – although we hope you switch off from work, relax and enjoy the nature and beauty on your doorstep!
