Papple Steading is a historic farm set in the beautiful foothills of East Lothian. It's only 45 minutes drive from Edinburgh with easy access to hills, beaches, castles and golf courses. The four properties – the farmhouse, the Grieve’s Cottage and the two bothies [the bothies were included in the list of Scotland’s 25 most stylish bothies!] – are luxuriously fitted out and furnished and combined sleep 20 people in 10 bedrooms – 9 with private shower/bathrooms.

The complex can be booked exclusively or by individual property for holiday, business and activity retreats. Contact Crabtree & Crabtree for holiday bookings and contact us direct for business, event or activity use.

Work has begun on the creation of an agricultural heritage centre within the main steading which will also contain a café, a shop, an art studio and galleries, a repair shop, an auditorium and other spaces for personal, community and corporate use.
