We didn't know what to expect before we arrived but we had no reason to be concerned. Our stay was wonderful and everyone made us feel completely at home.
The food was excellent and our bedrooms were perfect. We enjoyed visiting with Freddie and Cameron and dinner with the Laird was fun.
Well worth the money. We will definitely be recommending it to friends.
Had a marvellous night at Colstoun Castle. A lovely place with hosts who are eager to please. Would thoroughly recommend - seems really underpriced at £30 per night !
Colstoun is a wonderful place tucked away in beautiful grounds. It's peaceful, charming and utterly gorgeous. Every day provided new adventures and every night was shared with new and fabulous guests. Cameron was a brilliant host providing a great level of service.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Colstoun and would certainly recommend it. The house and its grounds are beautiful not to mention utterly fascinating as every artifact (and there are so many) seems to have its own story. The bedrooms are grandly traditional and Cameron was of course the perfect host! Colstoun's location is perfect if you're after a complete break from everyday life but don't have the time to go too far.
Set in stunning grounds and within an easy drive to Edinburgh Coulston House is the ideal location for quick weekends away or a large events such as weddings and parties. The town of Haddington is less than a five minute drive away and buses from Haddinton to Edinburgh run regularly also Drem train station is only a short drive away from which train into Edinburgh take approximately 15 minutes
I have been to Coulston many times and I have had an incredible time every time. Cameron and Ludovic, who run the estate are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble and they ensure that a good time is had by all. The interior of Coulston is stunning and every inch has a story which both Ludovic and Cameron are happy to tell any one who is interested.
I would thoroughly recommend Coulston to any one.
Colstoun is the ideal weekend getaway. Just half an hour from Edinburgh and you're in the midst of some stunning Scottish countryside, in a house full of history and character. The staff are incredibly helpful and nothing is too much trouble. I thoroughly recommend it.
Colstoun is the perfect get away from city life in Edinburgh and I would happily recommend it to anyone. When you arrive you are treated like old friends staying for the weekend and are welcomed into a home more than just a place to stay. The rooms are unashamedly characterful with so much history and beauty that you quickly find yourself wondering round getting lost in the stories about a snuff box or the fans. I very much enjoyed my stay there and I can't see how anyone wouldn't.
Coulston is great. Close and easy for Edinburgh but still in beautiful surroundings. Very hospitable staff.
I went to Colstoun for a delicious Sunday lunch a couple of weeks ago. I was hugely impressed by the place, the treasures inside the house could keep you interested for days and our post lunch walk around the grounds provided the perfect opportunity to see the stunning Scottish landscape. Its proximity to Edinburgh is a massive bonus, I could not recommend anywhere more.
I've been to Colstoun House twice...both times I've been there I have enjoyed myself far too much! I would recommend this wonderful place to anyone!
Absolutely stunning views surround the house with a fantastic history, and combined with the brilliant people it really creates a wonderful and peaceful atmosphere that is perfect for anyone looking to stay in the idyllic Scottish countryside, within perfect commuting distance of Edinburgh.
I have had a great time whenever I've stayed at Colstoun. The tranquil yet buzzing atmosphere that surrounds it, makes for the most wonderful break. Everyone there is fabulous and they are super tremendous and generous hosts. The house interior is fantastic, brimming with lovely things and the lawn and garden rejuvenation is really starting to take shape... I think they are going to look killer come summer.
