==== "Serenio" ( Serene Studio ;) is purposely built to host our relatives when staying with us in the beautiful scenic surroundings of the Pentland Hills close to Edinburgh. More and more friends-of-friends have discovered our hideway so we are now managing it through this portal. ===== It's setting is idyllic and private in 2 acres of woodland also providing space to enjoy and for our chickens, goats and pig to roam. Located about 300m above sea level there are fantastic views over the hills down to the Firth of Forth with Edinburgh Castle in the distant skyline. ===== We are in the beautiful Pentland Hills Regional Park where you will have straight from "Serenio" access to an abundance of nature, hills, streams, lochs, hiking trails, mountain bike tracks etc, but most of all peace ...==== "Serenio" ( Serene Studio ;) is purposely built to host our relatives when staying with us in the beautiful scenic surroundings of the Pentland Hills close to Edinburgh.

The City of Edinburgh is beautiful, historic and bustling with an abundance of (free) museums, architectonic beauty and cultural events. ===== In one sentence: raw nature and cosmopolitan experiences combined and we ourselves never fail to discover something new and interesting after the almost 20 years we now lived in Scotland. It typically sleeps 2 and has en-suite bathroom facilities, but the setup is flexible with two double daybeds. With its full facilities and kitchen it is available to rent as self-catering accommodation. ===== For children there is plenty of play equipment scattered around the woodland including a massive trampoline, swings, tumble bar, flying fox and the various tree houses. ===== There is also an option to order your breakfast basket with fresh eggs from our hens, local produce and home-made bread of choice for £10.

Wonderful!
We had a wonderful stay in this unique little pod. Resy was a wonderful host. Beautiful surroundings and so tranquil though only about 20 mins from Edinburgh city centre. The weather wasn't kind to use but hope to go back next summer to fully experience this wonderful place and to see Betsy again of course!

A wonderful secluded cabin in the woods
We booked Serenio for a few days to look after our grand kids while mum went back to work. We had a brilliant time with them, the cabin was so well appointed and so clean. It had everything we could have hoped for. Resy welcomed us on our arrival and provided goodies and essentials while we settled in. We would definitely recommend this accommodation to others looking for a quiet getaway, very near Edinburgh.

Vom Schwein bis zum Cottage - perfekt!
Wir können die Unterkunft uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen. Die Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich, die Tiere auf dem Grundstück eine Bereicherung für jeden Urlauber :), das Cottage ist liebevoll gebaut und eingerichtet. Es fehlte uns an nichts. Mountainbiker und Naturliebhaber kommen auf ihre Kosten, die Umgebung ist ein Traum. Edingburgh muss man sich trotzdem nicht entgehen lassen und kann man bequem mit dem Bus erreichen.

Perfect
Beautiful little hideaway in the Pentlands, with easy access to the stunning historical city of Edinburgh. We were a bit unsure of the proximity to the owner's main house and to the road, but my partner and I were left with our privacy. Mrs. Bereen was extremely friendly and accomodating and even offered extra services, like picking us up from town if we had heavy shopping, or even dropping us off at the airport on our last day. I was even allowed to use their trampoline! Overall, if you want to visit Edinburgh and stay somewhere close by, in the beautiful rural outskirts, in a cosy little "log cabin", then I'd highly recommend checking this place out!

Amazing cottage
"Serenio"..... An absolutely adorable place I wish to come back one day. Me and my husband enjoyed staying over 5 days on New Year`s holidays. We had everything we needed and even more. It is easy to spot how much effort was given to create a comfortable and warm environment. No wonder, it was made for relatives, hence must be the best place in the whole world and it was! In addition to a great accommodation we have got truly hospitable owners :)

Highly recommended for nature lovers!!
I would like to visit there again if possible!! The only problem was the cold water in the basins. Rest was fantastic! Resy is absolutely lovely and very warm and approachable!!

Great place to stay
Lovely place we stayed in last week. Almost brand New, nice details, and always important, good beds to sleep in. And the surroundings (The national park is right next door); indeed great views and a great place to hike. Nature like we expected in Scotland. And dont forget to visit Edinburgh ! We will come back next year, three days wasnt nearly enough.
