This is a lovely period detached cottage with beautiful fully enclosed spacious mature gardens. Within easy reach of Edinburgh, with regular buses and trains that can take you directly into the city centre. An ideal location for contractors working in the area as well as holiday lets.

Located on a family-run working arable and sheep farm, this charming cottage is only 10 miles from the wonderful city centre of Edinburgh, and close to the beautiful Pentland Hills.

This single-storey stone cottage has soft neutral tones accented with splashes of colour in the soft furnishings and gentle artwork, creating an elegant yet welcoming home from home. Sleeping six guests in three chic bedrooms, this spacious yet cosy cottage is perfect for couples, families and groups alike, and is delightful to return to after a busy day exploring the central belt of Scotland.

Enter the stone cottage into the hall and discard wet boots and damp coats before heading through to the kitchen to make a cuppa. Prepare yourself a delicious meal and take it to the lounge/diner, gathering at the dining table to plan the next days activities. As the evening draws in, snuggle up on the leather sofa to watch a movie together, before relaxing in the serene bedrooms for a peaceful night’s sleep. Wake refreshed and take your coffee in the garden, listening to the early morning birdsong as the sun comes up.

We all loved the cottage. Location was great, accommodation was first class. Large enclosed garden was fantastic for the kids to play in when at the cottage. Plenty of places within easy driving distance to visit. Finally I have to mention Shona Galloway, the owner. Excellent communication and very informative in our visit. Thank you so much.

The cottage was well equipped, clean, cosy and private. It is located on a working farm and it was lovely to see the chickens roaming round, the sheep in the field next door and the occasional rabbit in the lawn! It is not within walking distance of any shops/pubs/restaurants so you would have to drive/catch the bus! There is one close by that goesRead more directly into the centre of Edinburgh.
