The detail

Nestled amidst the rolling Scottish countryside of Hillhouse Farm on the edge of the Scottish borders, House on the Hill is a cosy rural retreat. Surrounded by 1,500 acres of farmland which is grazed by several thousand sheep, this is a great choice for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The cottage itself offers quintessential countryside charm, having once been one of the farm’s shepherd’s quarters. After several renovations, House on the Hill now provides luxurious holiday accommodation for up to five guests.

House on the Hill is a pretty cottage, constructed from local stone in the 1800s. It has a warm and welcoming atmosphere from the moment you step inside. The large living area provides you with the chance to sink into one of the comfy sofas and relax with a book or perhaps get stuck into a board game. On your way to the kitchen to grab a snack or a glass of something, you’ll pass the downstairs loo and cloakroom area which is handy for your outdoor gear. The kitchen is well equipped with a range cooker and a dishwasher making your holiday catering a breeze. There’s a big oak dining table which can be extended to seat 10 if you’re having a few guests round for dinner. Outside, you’ll find a garden area where you can enjoy your meals alfresco on sunny days while you enjoy the view.

The two spacious bedrooms are upstairs and have a cosy feel thanks to the sloping ceilings. These rooms have been decorated in neutral colours with furnishings using natural materials, such as the wicker lampshades, which helps create a relaxing atmosphere. One of these bedrooms has an ensuite bathroom and there is a second bathroom upstairs for the other bedroom. There is further sleeping space downstairs in the living room as one of the sofas is a comfy sofa bed and travel cots can be provided if required.

The cottage has full access to walking and cycling routes on the farm and you’ll also be able to use the tennis court. Exploring the farmland, you might stumble across the Iron Age fort or be lucky enough to spot some of the wildlife that lives in the area. There are plenty of outdoor activities for you to have a go at. Try your hand at tomahawk throwing or see who’s the best shot on a clay pigeon shoot. If you can tear yourself away from the beautiful scenery, the city of Edinburgh is just half an hour away with plenty of restaurants and events on throughout the year.
