Our family stayed here for 3 nights and had the most amazing time. The house is magnificent with plenty of room for us all to relax. The master bedroom is incredible! Jamie and Helen were lovely hosts and helped us out so much. We loved exploring the farm and felt very much at home. Highly recommend!!

Absolutely fantastic 3 week stay for myself, my husband and our 3 year old. Property is excellent. Spacious yet cosy! Setting is incredible. An oasis of calm away from the busy city centre, but still within easy reach. Our little boy loved exploring the grounds. Goats, pigs, donkey, horses and chickens. And muddy puddles for splashing in. He had a ball! Host's were so helpful and very friendly. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again. 10/10. Thank you!

Wir haben eine wunderschöne Woche in Schottland verbracht. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit und haben dazu beigetragen, dass wir uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt haben (an meinem Geburtstag lag ein kleines Geschenk vor der Tür, sehr nett). Das Highlight für uns war der offene Kamin, den wir jeden Abend genutzt haben. Sehr romantisch!! Die Wohnung ist sehr großzügig und war für uns (2 Personen) viel zu groß. Da das Wetter eher kühl und regnerisch war, haben wir sehr viel Zeit in der Wohnung, die immer durch die vorhandene Zentralheizung warm war, verbracht. Vielen Dank nochmal an Helen und James für die schönen Tage in einem alten schottischen Landhaus mit sehr viel Atmosphäre. Hella und Goswin

Nice and spacious Georgian house close to Edinburgh
My wife and I travelled with our two sons (17 and 19) to explore Scotland, we had a rental car, so we did not spend too much time at the apartment indeed. The apartment entrance is at the main house back door, accessing a small lobby which is shared with the main house, so it is easy to meet the lovely owners any time. The staircase is narrow and steep, not feasible for people with limited mobility unfortunately. There is plenty of space for parking a car, and the property is just 10 minutes away by car to one of the many park-and-ride facilities around Edinburgh. It is spacious enough for four people, it was created by splitting the upper floor of the main house. The bathroom has been refurbished recently, the two rooms and the living room are quite spacious with plenty of natural light through wide windows. There are nice views of the Georgian house gardens and surroundings from each and every room. The kitchen might not be equipped for proper cooking – e.g. the smoke extractor is small and in the opposite wall of the kitchen electric stove - but it is good enough to cook basic stuff. There is a Wi-Fi network to access the internet, but it was very slow though. The property is huge and in the middle of the forest, hence very quiet and allows for nice walks or jogging any time of the day. We did not need to heat the apartment, but there are some fireplaces and also radiators everywhere. Helen and Jamie are very nice and friendly.

Lovely stay
Large, beautiful flat up a steep flight of stairs. Parking and entrance in rear of main house. Lovely views of fields and of the family’s pigs, donkeys, and hens. Very well-heated. Helen easy and kind to work with. Hope to stay here again in future.

Relaxing and friendly environment.
2 adults & 2 young children travelled from Wales to stay at the house for the New year. We enjoyed the stay it was like home from home. The children enjoyed visiting the donkeys every morning and collecting food for the pigs. Edinburgh was 20 min drive (highly recommend the events for new year) visited castle & Cramond island. We will be visiting again :)

lovely old charmer
Lovely old Georgian home...felt like Jane Austen might be dropping by for tea at any moment. Owners super easy to deal with. Grounds and surrounding farmlands are idyllic. Definitely quiet and removed but still a 2 minute drive to Balerno's little village downtown with co-op, chip shop etc. Farm animals and tennis court were a bonus for my 7 yr old boys - who knew they liked tennis! One thing to note - this is a converted upstairs unit and a spiral staircase that takes you from back of house up to the unit is quite steep and narrow...not sure if it was maybe servants quarters at one time?? I was traveling with my older mom (80) and she was a trooper getting up and down them but it's definitely not for anyone with mobility issues. There is a door that closes and locks at top of stairs so shouldn't be an issue keeping any little ones out of the stair well once you are settled in. Also there are a few stairs inside the unit from bedroom level to living area but these are pretty minor. Really lovely and relaxing...British countryside and charm at its best.
