The space

A double and a single bedroom are available (1 x 4'6" bed / 1 x 3' bed) plus a bathroom with over-bath shower in a village house 17 miles from Edinburgh. There is also a huge attic (8m x 4m), which is reached by a ladder. It has a built in king size bed and adjoining loo, and is ideal for children/teenagers. Adults probably won't like it so much, it's more of a den, but there's plenty of space for a larger family or party. The cost is based on two people sharing - if you are two people requiring two separate rooms I will need to increase the cost a little. I only have one party of guests at a time so the bathroom is private for you. I provide all bedlinen and towels, and there is a hairdryer, hot water bottles and extra blankets (this is Scotland!) in the wardrobe in the double room. I have far too many books, which you are welcome to borrow if you're here for a few days.

Guests have unrestricted use of the kitchen, large airy sitting/dining room, garden, sun deck etc. I only ask for privacy in my own bedroom. The house is right in the centre of the village, but in a very secluded little cul-de-sac. Two cats live here - it is their home as well, so maybe won't suit those aren't animal lovers.

I'm out at work all day, but when I'm home I'm happy to cook / talk / share or to let you get on with it yourselves. I don't provide meals as such, but you are more than welcome to use what's in the fridge and cupboards.

West Linton is a lovely friendly village with a family pub with beer garden and a restaurant (The Old Bakehouse), which is open Wednesday to Sunday. The large village Co-operative store is open from 7am to 10pm seven days a week and has everything (including excellent wines). Lots of parking, internet, satellite. Visitors' pets welcome within reason. There's an easy bus route/car to Edinburgh (buses run approximately every hour, and it takes 50 minutes to get to the city centre). We're only 15 minutes drive from the Edinburgh ring road and central Scottish motorway, and it takes about 25 minutes to drive to Edinburgh Airport (more during rush hour). It's an ideal base to explore both the lovely, historic city of Edinburgh and the beautiful countryside of the Scottish Borders from.

West Linton has a post office, bank (2 days a week), a newsagent which stocks everything from DVDs to strange curry ingredients, and several lovely shops for browsing, including a bookshop. There's also a very good golf course and lots of beautiful walks/cycling routes.

Biggar and Peebles are both very attractive towns within a 15 minute drive, with lots to see and do, if you want something a little quieter than the bustle of Edinburgh.

House Rules

I'm very relaxed, as long as you don't leave a mess behind you. And if the cats or plants tell you they're hungry, please feed them.

Checking in is from 17.30 onwards, as I'm out at work during the day, but if you need access earlier I can arrange keys. While you're here you'll have your own set of keys and can come and go whenever you like.

Great location in beautiful village 15 miles from central Edinburgh. Highly recommend the food in the Gordon Arms If you want to park and ride DONT use the Stainton site as buses are terrible. Drive over the bypass and go to the Cameron toll shopping centre - free, much close…
