About Cass Delaney

Cass is from Edinburgh, and Charlie from Duns in the Scottish Borders. We live in Ampherlaw Farmhouse with our son, Lachlan and our horses, dogs, cat and chickens!

Cass Delaney purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Cass Delaney chose Scotland

Before buying Ampherlaw Farmhouse in 2004 we lived just three miles away. We often rode past the house and fell in love with its crow stepped gables and beautiful stonework. Although it was in desperate need of attention, we saw the beauty that lay beneath. We were very lucky to be riding past one day as the For Sale sign was being erected. The rest is history!!

We spent the next six years restoring it to its former glory, and at the same time extended into two of the adjoining barns. It is these barns that form the cottage that we offer for self catering holidays.

What makes this cottage unique

Ampherlaw is a little hidden gem in south Lanarkshire. The beautiful views on a fine day make you think you're living in paradise. Although it has a lovely rural position, it is only a 35 minute drive to Edinburgh.

We love staying here as we have horses, dogs, cats and chickens and we love the freedom the place offers.

Beautiful cottage!

We had a lovely and relaxing stay here! The cottage was so beautiful and well kept and the hosts were friendly and helpful. The cottage is in the perfect location for day trips to the surrounding countryside, including Glasgow and Edinburgh. We would highly recommend this cottage.

Lovely helpful owners, clean, spacious, very peaceful, had everything we needed, nice and warm

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has been lovingly restored and we really enjoyed our stay, we were able to visit plenty of places, the cottage is ideally situated between Glasgow and Edinburgh which is one of the reasons we chose to book a holiday here. We were very grateful for the goodies waiting for us on arrival (in the kitchen and the bathroom). We loved the bathrobes. On a personal note, having the TV and the sitting room together with the bedroom wasn't always convenient as I sometimes have trouble sleeping. Will certainly recommend staying here!

Wonderful relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit Ampherlaw farmhouse and we enjoyed it more than last time. Cass and Charlie are wonderful hosts and the welcome hamper that was kindly provided was excellent. The property is finished to a high standard and is supplied with everything you need for comfy stay. Edinburgh and Glasgow are a short drive away and Peebles is worth a visit with great food and service at The Crown Hotel. Overall Ampherlaw farmhouse is a great place to stay and unwind from the hustle and bustle. Thank you Cass and Charlie

Fantastic location, beautiful surrounding and great property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our honeymoon and what can we say... Warm welcome, hamper already in the kitchen and eggs from their hens. Beautifully presented inside. We settled right in and got a roaring fire started straight away with the supplies provided. There is also a pack of local brochures so if your not sure what to do there are some ideas to get you started. Great location and easy travel to Edinburgh where we spent a lot of time. We are already thinking about it again for our anniversary.

Beautiful cottage in a fabulous location.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived on the 17th September with simple instructions provided by the owners, to enable us to find the property. We received a lovely welcome pack and the property was just as described on the website. It was lovely and clean and the facilities were outstanding. The owners were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely recommend this property to family and friends.
