Nine Mile Burn, Midlothian
Idyllic, rural retreat in the Scottish Borders offering plenty of country charm and super-comfy furnishings.
The Coach House offers a stylish, comfy rural retreat in the marvellous Scottish Borders region of Scotland. This wonderful holiday home sits off the beaten track, yet is still a short drive from the bustling city of Edinburgh. Guests at the Coach House are guaranteed plenty of comfort and style, as well as fantastic access to some marvellous countryside and scenery.
The main social space inside the cottage is the spacious sitting room and dining room. This open plan area has characterful beams, and original coach house doors, which combine to give the room a slice of rustic charm. The beams have been painted white to lighten the room, and they combine nicely with the soft, gentle colour palette of the home. The coach house doors open up onto the garden, which offers great views, and allows natural light to come pouring in. The room also features a wood burner, a library of books, a Smart TV with a DVD player, and comfy sofas, making evenings in a joy. The room also has a spacious dining table that’s ideal for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The kitchen is equally stylish, and features a small central island and doors that lead out to the side of the cottage. It also has all of the appliances you need to cook up a storm, as well as a washing machine to keep your clothes nice and clean after a day out exploring.
The three charming bedrooms make use of a soothing colour palette. The master bedroom has an en suite shows room, whilst the other two share a large family bathroom that has a shower and separate slipper bath. There are two double bedrooms and one twin, all of which have comfy beds to guarantee a great night’s sleep.
The house is perched above rolling hills and farms, and is located on the edge of the Pentland Hills National Park. This is therefore a fabulous location for outdoors lovers with lots of cycling and hiking routes. The nearby village of West Linton has good local amenities including a small Co-op supermarket and deli for essentials as well as the Olde Toll Tea House, which is a lovely spot for tea and scones. There’s also the wonderful Gordon Arms pub that offers local produce and delicious drinks. For evening dining, the Old Bakehouse has a cracking reputation for its ambience and top quality food and is ideal for a romantic dinner for two.
The towns and villages of Penicuik, Peebles and Biggar are also nearby and offer yet more lovely options for eating and drinking. A bit further away, but still well worth a visit is the thriving and bustling city of Edinburgh.
