The highlights
  • Set in an 18th-century farm yard, Eastside Cartshed had been beautifully converted into a cosy yet stylish hideaway for two.
  • The open-plan interior with double-height ceilings and huge windows offers plenty of Scandi hygge with neutral colours, sheepskin rugs and a wood-burning stove.
  • Hidden away in the woodland garden, you’ll find the wood-fired sauna. It’s shared with the other guests, however, everyone gets their own timeslot to guarantee privacy.
  • Located on a 3,000 acre working sheep farm with many fantastic walks right from your front door. If you fancy venturing a little further, Edinburgh is close by for a day trip and you can easily escape to the coast.

The detail

Located at the end of a gently winding farm track and surrounded by the rugged heather hills of the Scottish countryside, this beautiful barn conversion is a cosy romantic hideaway. After starting the day with a long walk in the Pentland Hills or exploring the coast of East Lothian, relax in the wood-fired sauna hidden away in the woodland garden. If you fancy a change of pace, the vibrant city of Edinburgh is just a short drive away. Or, simply curl up in front of the wood-burning stove with a good book.

The barn has been beautifully converted, retaining the original sandstone exterior, in-keeping with the 18th-century farmyard surrounding it. Inside, you’ll find the Scandinavian-inspired design creates a bright and airy space which is more contemporary than you might suspect from the outside. The double-height spaces and huge windows looking out to the heather-clad hills and woodland gardens create a relaxing atmosphere. The natural colour palette and simple materials used in the furnishings add to the overall sense of calm.

The kitchen and living areas are open-plan but on different levels and elegantly divided by a bespoke bookcase. Enjoy a delicious home-cooked dinner before retreating down to the living room to snuggle up in front of the wood-burner. The bedroom is divided off from the rest of the space by a stylish ash screen which offers privacy while letting through plenty of natural light. You’ll find a comfy double bed, complete with luxurious, crisp linen and woollen blankets. Move through to the bathroom which has stylish marble tiles, underfloor heating and a rainfall showerhead.

Wander down to the woodland garden which has a private wood-fired sauna. This is shared with the other guests but everyone gets their own timeslot so you’re guaranteed privacy. Venture a little further and you’ll find yourself amidst some spectacular Scottish scenery. Eastside Cartshed is located on a working sheep farm, over 3,000 acres in size and encompassing some of the best-known parts of the Pentland Hills Regional Park. Without leaving the farm, you can climb to the top of Scald Law which, at 579m, offers some truly stunning views.

The location means that Eastside Cartshed is a haven for keen walkers but there are plenty of other things to do. For a relaxed day trip, Edinburgh is close by with its vibrant creative scene and rich history. Head to the coast to discover sweeping beaches and pretty coastal towns, or book yourself in for a day of mountain biking, surfing, horse riding or climbing.
