"Great place to stay"
A lovely house in a beautiful setting nest to the stately home - which is really understated. Private garden ideal for kids and to birdwatchers. Having free reign to explore the stately home estate and gardens at your leisure ideal for adults and kids. We stayed as a family of 2 adults and 4 children, and the house is large with the open fire and the free wifi and large TV providing constant interest as well as the woodpeckers visiting the bird feeder. Reasonably close to the park and ride, but also the bus from the centre of edinburgh terminates in the village with a brisk walk up the lane meaning you can make it without having to pay for a taxi if you dont want to take the car on a night out and don't mind a walk. The owners are based on the estate so are close at hand if there are any problems. Made to feel very welcome and would recommend to groups of all ages.
Recommended for: Age 55+, sightseeing, families with teenagers, families with young children and romantic getaway
