The team behind the Pedlars shops have extended their enterprises to include managing a truly spectacular holiday home. Balbegno Castle is a 1560s castle located in Kincardineshire, which the Pedlar’s people have spent the past two years redecorating with the products sold in their stores so a beautiful old building now has a stylish retro interior. 

The Castle has 6 bedrooms (sleeping up to 13), open fires and a croquet lawn, but its most distinctive feature is the Great Hall, which features an usual vaulted heraldic ceiling depicting the coat of arms of 13 Scottish peers. As well as the distinctive decor, Balbegno comes equipped with all mod cons (DVD player, broadbamd, dishwashers etc).

The price of renting Balbegno Castle starts at £2750 per week. There is still some availability this summer, which costs £3950, which may sound a lot but isn’t so bad if you can split it between a large group. Details of availability for 2010 and 2011, along with more information on the property and local area can be found on the Balbegno Castle website.
