Ultimate Christmas Breaks

Christmas Magic

Christmas at Gilmerton House

Want to share the ultimate Christmas experience with your family and friends? Stay at Gilmerton House for a short break over Christmas for two, three or more nights.

Imagine sweeping up the drive on Christmas Eve, being welcomed with mulled wine and afternoon tea in the drawing room.

Make yourself at home and look round the house before a pre-dinner drinks reception with canapes and sing some carols. Then enjoy a delicious three course light supper served in the dining room, finishing with digestifs, before heading to bed and setting out your Christmas stockings.

Christmas Day at Gilmerton House

Awake refreshed on Christmas Day and enjoy the marvellous views over the gardens. Have a leisurely breakfast with bucks fizz followed by a bracing walk around the estate to work up an appetite.

Return in time for canapes and Champagne at 3 pm round the Christmas tree. Your Christmas dinner with all the trimmings would be served at late afternoon, with digestifs and coffee served in the drawing room.

Finish the day with cheeseboard and port served at 8-9 pm in the front hall.
