The space
A cosy, rural cottage in East Lothian which is 1 mile from the village of Garvald and 3 miles from the village of Gifford (supermarket in this village). The location is on a farm at the foot of the Lammermuir Hills with lovely open views and lots of great nearby walks along the picturesque beaches, foothill paths & tracks. It's also a great area for cycling, the surrounding roads were used by Iron Man Triathlon in 2017 and 2018 as part of the cycling route! The cottage offers a truly relaxing stay in the quiet of the countryside although it is also only 40 minutes drive from Edinburgh and the local villages and towns are of course nearer.

The cottage is very well equipped, details of facilities are below as well as under amenities. If you are unsure about whether something is provided or would just like to check something in particular please feel free to message me.

Where you’ll be

East Lothian, Scotland, United Kingdom

If country air and the sound of bird song is your thing then this is the right place for you. Many beautiful views can be found within easy walking distance. Recently installed walking tracks for the more seasoned walker can take you for many long hours of fresh air and fun! The Lammermuir Hills also offer many different walking routes. Bring the dogs and enjoy your break. The local village of Garvald offers a great little pub (also dog friendly) with good calibre meals prepared by the hosts Peter and Elaine. Nearest grocery shops, post office, cafe and 2 other pubs are 3 miles away in Gifford though.
