Offering the best of both worlds, situated in peaceful countryside amid the rolling Pentland Hills and just 10 miles from Edinburgh city centre, this striking holiday cottage has been created from an original barn. Adjoining the owner’s home and with its own private enclosed garden, there are stylish contemporary furnishings giving comfort and warmth, and specially crafted stained glass and woodwork to recall the rustic charm of the old hayloft.
Train access into Edinburgh from Kirknewton, 3 miles, makes for a perfect car free day in this beautiful, vibrant city, where there is year round entertainment. While nearby there is the climbing centre at Ratho, the grand houses of Hopetoun and the House of the Binns, and further afield you reach Perth, Stirling or the villages of Fife and East Lothian within an hour. There are lovely walks and cycle routes from the doorstep, as well as several pubs, restaurants and a monthly farmer’s market in Balerno, with golf, fishing and riding nearby too.
