Quality of life is about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pick up a pint of milk, to more important matters like finding the right school or having a health centre nearby, you need to know that the community you’re moving to will support you and your family, as well as be a pleasant place to live. So here’s some useful information about the area around Roselea.
Rosewell was established over 150 years ago to provide good housing for local mineworkers. All the houses had gardens, an unusual feature for the period, and today these village homes are the basis of a lively and vibrant community.
Just four miles from the City of Edinburgh Bypass, Roselea is around 25 minutes by car of central Edinburgh and within 40 minutes by bus routes 31 and 49, both frequent services. The Penicuik to Dalkeith Walkway provides pleasant access for pedestrians and cyclists to the neighbouring towns, and at Bonnyrigg it intersects with National Cycle Route 1 for exploring further afield. The Bypass provides fast access to Edinburgh Airport and the whole of the central belt.
Arts & Entertainment
While Rosewell is within easy reach of Edinburgh’s diverse and lively cultural life and festivals, there are some major attractions closer to home, including the National Mining Museum at Newtongrange which presents a range of special events, and the famous, mysterious Roslin Chapel.
Leisure & Recreation
Roselea is close to some of the area’s most beautiful walking and cycling routes, including the Roslin Glen Walk along the North Esk, and the nearby Pentland Hills offer endless opportunities for hill walking and year-round winter sports at the Midlothian Snowsports Centre. Glencorse, a picturesque and challenging course described as one of Scotland’s hidden gems, is the nearest of several golf clubs in the area.
The local recycling site in Carnethie Street, three quarters of a mile from Roselea, accepts household packaging, glass bottles and jars, paper and textiles. There is a larger centre with facilities for white goods, TVs and garden waste around four miles away at Penicuik.
Education & Health
Rosewell Primary School and St Matthew’s RC Primary School are both within a short walk of the development, and pupils from the village normally move on to Lasswade High School in Bonnyrigg. There are three medical practices based in Bonnyrigg Health Centre, including the Strathesk Practice, and a choice of dentists in Bonnyrigg High Street.
The general store in Rosewell caters for most everyday needs including newspapers and groceries. For a wider choice, Bonnyrigg’s lively High Street has a large Co-op supermarket, post office, pharmacist, conveniences stores, banks and other services. The Pentland Retail Park at Straiton, with more than 40 major high street names including Ikea, Argos, Boots, Homebase and Sainsbury’s, is just three miles away.
Living in Rosewell
When you leave the car at home and explore the local area by foot or bicycle, you get to know it so much better. And by using local shops and services, you’ll help to keep the neighbourhood vibrant and prosperous. Every place has its own personality, and once you move in you’ll soon find your favourite walks, and the shops you like best.

We’ll keep it brief, because a lot has happened over the past seventy-five years. Around 100,000 new Miller homes, for a start. A lot of new ideas in building technology. Loads of awards, like Major Housebuilder of the Year, Large Housebuilder of the Year, Best Sustainable Development, and Private Housebuilder of the Year. That last one’s important because it’s from First Time Buyer magazine, so it’s about real people and their experiences.
Listening to you
Four times every year, we ask an independent research company to find out whether our customers would recommend us to friends. Our current rating is 97% positive (2012 average).
That’s about more than great houses. It’s about keeping in touch, helping you find what you want, helping you buy it once you’ve found it, telling you how the building’s coming along (by email, SMS, or the post). It’s about listening, and being there if you have a question or a problem. It’s about our incentives, offers and assistance schemes (please check them out), and dedicated websites that help people in a new neighbourhood to get to know each other. Yes, we get excited by new ideas and technologies, but essentially we’re just old fashioned, home loving people.
Quality homes. In quality places.
Building homes is what we do, and we do it exceptionally well. Over the past 75 years, we’ve seen what people really like about the homes we build and, well, we build on that experience.
So you know that behind the kerb appeal there’s a structure that meets the highest professional standards. You know that the beautifully proportioned rooms are impeccably finished and decorated. You know that every detail has been checked, inspected (and admired). You know all that because of the way the door feels when you open it, the crisp clean edge of the paintwork, the way your whole home just works. That’s experience.
What you may not realise, at least until you have the pleasant surprise of seeing your fuel bills, is that we are also absolutely committed to the most environmentally friendly movements in homebuilding. This means we use low-carbon construction methods (even zero carbon on occasion) but it also means that our homes are highly energy efficient in everyday life.
And finally, location location location. Some people want country quiet, some want urban convenience. All we can do is try to find the very best spot for every taste. So we try to put urban where it’s also pretty quiet and rural where it’s also pretty convenient. And the views? Well, we can’t move mountains (and wouldn’t if we could) but we will try to make sure your new home is pointing towards one if there’s one available, and something else nice if there’s not.
Service is too small a word.
We think of it as a relationship. Even if it never gets beyond the electronic stage we’ll do our very best to help you find what you’re looking for, and do it as unobtrusively as we can. You choose the channels, and we go away when you ask us to.
When you visit one of our developments, though, we have a chance to meet properly and talk. We enjoy that. We’ll show you homes we think you might like (or ones very like them if they’re not finished yet) and tell you about special offers that might interest you.
If you decide to buy, we’ll help in every way we can. We can give you information about mortgages and lawyers if you want it, although we’re careful not to become too close to anyone working on your behalf because we don’t want any conflicts of interest. Then we’ll keep you informed as your new home is being built, and invite you round at the appropriate time to choose things like kitchen worktops and bathroom tiles. If you want to measure up for carpets and curtains, we’ll do our best to arrange things.
When you get your keys, there’s a meeting to go over all the important stuff like stopcocks and thermostats, and we’ll also leave you full instructions. But here’s the best part. We don’t go away. We’ll leave you in peace, of course, but if you need help or advice we’ll be on hand for as long as you need us. That’s the kind of relationship we like.
