The Lodge

Extremely Comfortable

Self-Catering Holidays & Rentals

Our luxury Lodge, a beautiful five star, Victorian cottage is a charming self-catering holiday cottage and rental, just half an hour from Edinburgh in unbeatable East Lothian countryside. It’s just the place to unwind, warmed by the wood burning stove or sitting on the patio in the beautiful garden.

Gilmerton Lodge’s 3 bedrooms were recently renovated to the highest standard, enhancing many of its original features.

“We had a fantastic stay! It's a beautiful cottage... The beds were extremely comfortable and my Dad said it's the first time he's slept through the night all year! (Now that's a compliment!) …We couldn't recommend this place enough!”


This comfortable Lodge provides an excellent base for exploring the rolling countryside, sandy coastline, golf courses and many historic attractions that make East Lothian so special. It’s also within walking distance of the fascinating Museum of Flight with the Concorde Experience.

The Lodge can be booked online on a self-catering basis through Holiday Cottages. The cottage can be rented flexibly, on a weekly basis or per night (minimum stay of two nights).
