The Details...

Located just ten miles from Edinburgh, the Hayloft allows you to enjoy the peace and tranquility of rural life as well as the history and bustle of the city. This charming property really does make for a great family getaway.

Beautifully decorated, the property has maintained elements of its original character throughout with exposed timber beams and natural stone giving the place a rustic feel. The Hayloft sleeps up to four people comfortably between a large double bedroom, which is accompanied by an en-suite wash room, and a twin room which is the perfect size for two adults or children. A large, slate-panelled family bathroom features a full-sized bath and electric shower and is tastefully decorated with blue and gold tiles.

The bright, airy living space is brought to life with artworks by local artists which decorate the walls. Two squishy sofas centre themselves around a wood burning stove in the living area – this is a real highlight during winter and adds a touch of warmth and luxury to an evening spent indoors. Whilst some may wish to venture out into Edinburgh, those who do wish to curl up in front of the fire will enjoy a thoroughly cosy night in.

The property is designed for self-catered stays and, as such, comes with everything you could need for a great weekend in. A well-equipped kitchen makes cooking simple. Plus, there is the additional option to eat al-fresco when the weather suits – the garden comes with a patio decked with a table, chairs and a BBQ.

Just on the doorstep from Hayloft is the lush tranquillity of the Pentland Hills and its regional park. Here wildlife is abundant and its remoteness from the bustling city means it’s wonderfully calm and quiet. Nonetheless, you’ll still find yourselves just three miles from the nearest village and a short car journey to the historic city of Edinburgh – famous for its castle, fantastic restaurants, whisky-tasking tours and proximity to Arthur’s Seat.
