The Experience

Walk straight in to an open plan, living space/gallery with underfloor heating, beamed ceilings, African beaded lampshades and early drawings by Phyllida Barlow. A wood-burning stove belts out the heat and hundreds of books about art and design surround you. Walk through French doors onto a decked area with a Big Green Egg and views across an orchard and fields down to the river.

The kitchen is roomy and all the basics for cooking will be there, including a smart coffee maker and designer plates and bowls. Bedrooms, all en suite, are gorgeous spaces with more art, La-Eva bath stuff, mohair blankets and deep mattresses. The master has its own balcony from which you can watch the bridges over the river light up at dusk. The garden surrounds you, with a big lawn and a wood-fired bath for 2.

Explore the park, wander to the on site café, swim in the outdoor heated saltwater pool, hire bikes and hit the Pentland Hills.

Reviews

A very special experience staying at the stylish Artist’s House, with the added magic of Jupiter Artland as your back garden. We’ll definitely be back. Thank you Jupiter - definitely a 2021 holiday highlight.

Camilla, Guildford

A glorious setting for this old gardener's cottage with far-reaching views, a private garden, acres of sculpture park to explore and superb art work within. A grown-up sort of place .

Location

The neighbourhood

The nearest village is East Calder (a five-minute drive) where there are a few small shops, and the nearest train station is at Kirknewton. Ratho (also five minutes) has a pub, The Bridge Inn, and a canal with gentle walks along the tow path. Edinburgh is a half-hour drive or you can catch the bus there from the main gate to the park - it'll bring you back too. The Pentland Hills are a 15-minute drive for walks and cycles.
