Cockenzie House and Gardens is a hidden gem, a Jacobean house built in 1675 by the Seton family and surrounded by gardens. Don’t be put off by the clinker walls, come inside and you will find welcoming gardens, unique garden follies, a café, a plant nursery and the Heritage Chamber – the heart of Cockenzie and Port Seton’s rich and varied heritage.
Come and peruse No 22 Gallery and Gifts where we feature locally made crafts, items and paintings by local artists. We are proud to say that we are the only place to sell beautifully made postcards of Cockenzie and Port Seton.
And to surprise you even further, Cockenzie House and Gardens is home to 46 studios - a range of dynamic entrepreneurs, Paintbox Art School, award-winning Minato Sushi, furniture upcycler, therapists and Why-Aye Woodturners.
We are 30 seconds away from the John Muir Way and the shores of the Firth of Forth, on the direct Number 26 bus route to and from the centre of Edinburgh and close to many of Scotland’s finest golf courses. Parking available on Edinburgh Road. Step free access from Cockenzie High Street.
