Once two weaver’s cottages, this characterful retreat offers a doorway into worlds of historic streets and sprawling countryside. Taking pride of place in a beautiful rural village and only 18 miles from Edinburgh, it is ideal for those looking for a taste of the wild whilst still enjoying easy access to lots of great amenities.

 

A two-bedroom family cottage sleeping up to four people and one dog, this West Linton property is as homely as they come. An ideal summer base for exploration and scrumptiously cosy winter retreat, it boasts year-round appeal. Gather up your loved ones for a short break or week away and settle into the holiday spirit.

 

A single-storey cottage, follow the corridor and make way your way to the lounge-come-kitchen. Equipped with all you could need for your daily routine, kick start your mornings with a fresh brew from the coffee machine and wind down in the evening by the wood burner with bellies full of home-cooked goodness.

 

When day turns into night, you will be able to reach the bedrooms from the hallway. The extra comfortable master bedroom is the perfect base for grown-ups, while children won’t be able to resist running off to the mezzanine twin bedroom, complete with its own PlayStation games console! To complete the picture, the family bathroom boasts underfloor heating and a rainfall shower.

 

Make use of the secure bike storage, and come and go as you please. While the cottage doesn’t have its own garden, there is more than enough space nearby to stretch your legs.

Benefiting from a great village location, you are only a short walk from local eateries and shops. Spend afternoons mooching through the streets or wandering around the park, and stock up on tasty treats from the local deli to accompany your morning coffee or afternoon tea. If you are a golf fan, West Linton Golf Club is a mile from the property and has an 18-hole, par 69 moorland golf course that offers a fun challenge to golfers of all abilities. Polish your swing before rounding off the day with a drink in the local pub (less than 0.5 miles away).

 

Outside of the village, there is ample to see and do. Get your legs pumping with a hike through the Pentland Hills and along the old Roman road, taking in the beautiful sights as you go. For keen biking enthusiasts, the world-famous Glentress Forest in the Tweed Valley is a mountain biking heaven. Drive the 17.5 miles and enjoy a day spinning along on two wheels. For something completely different, Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh, is only 18 miles away and awash with activities and attractions. Make sure you visit the castle and treat yourself to a mouth-watering meal in one of the city's prestigious restaurants.

Linton Cottage is wonderful! We arrived after staying for a week in another cottage which was dirty. We prayed that Linton cottage would be as good as last year, only to find that it was even better than last year! So clean and fresh and with everything you could possibly need made available. This is a dog friendly cottage, but you would never knowRead more, as there was not a trace of dog smell! The Co-op near by was invaluable and the village is lovely. Good bus service to Edinburgh. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Hide

This comfortable cottage is located in the middle of the attractive small town of West Linton and is close to the quiet main street. The Post Office and Co-op Store are close to the property. A children's playground and a fast electric car charging station are just a short walk (very short drive!) in the other direction. As the owners live next dooRead morer, any problems with the cottage can be quickly dealt with. Hide

Just had a fantastic week in West Linton. Linton cottage is lovely. Very comfortable, well equipped, clean and tastefully decorated. Lovely walks from the front door. It was a great base to explore the area. West Linton is a lovely village, and Linton Cottage is a short walk from the pub, coffee shop and Co-op. We caught the bus into Edinburgh for Read moretwo days exploring this wonderful city. And the local garage came to our rescue when we had car trouble. We had a great time, highly recommended! Hide

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cottage. The owners left a very thoughtful welcome pack for us on arrival. We found it to be a very well stocked, and comfortable cottage, within easy driving distance of Edinburgh's Park and Ride. The village of West Linton was extremely character - full too. Would definitely recommend it to friendsRead more and family Hide
