Home & Gardens
Prestonfield's historic public rooms are great places to enjoy a drink, dine or to hide away and just enjoy the surroundings. Each is uniquely furnished in Prestonfield's trademark style; with ravishing art, antiques and lashings of charm.
20 acres of gardens and parkland surround Prestonfield, sheltering guests from the bustle of the city beyond. This unique enclave is a wonderful place to wind down.
The grandest of Prestonfield's public rooms, the baroque Tapestry Room was created by craftsmen working on the Palace of Holyroodhouse in 1687. Built to awe and impress, Scotland's most theatrical drawing room is still fit for Royalty.
Among the ancient Mortlake tapestries, gilded antiques and ancestral portraits you'll find comfortable sofas, board games, piles of books and a roaring log fire. By day the perfect spot for afternoon tea, at night, a magical room to enjoy after dinner drinks.
The Leather Room is named after the lavish panels of gilded 17th century leather from Cordoba, installed here as long ago as 1687 and recently restored. Originally the state bedchamber, it is now a romantic drawing room.
The Yellow Room takes its name from golden velvet walls, the perfect complement to a fire with historic black lacquer furniture including an impressively historic Chinese cabinet, which has been here since 1687
The Whisky room is hung with a rare collection of antique equestrian portraits. With quirky antler furniture, deep sofas and even deeper glasses of very rare Malt whisky are the order of the day in this clubbable retreat with a roaring log stove. Perfect for relaxing with after dinner drinks.
Our Reception ensures a luxurious and hassle-free environment to check in, to start your Prestonfield experience!
