This delightful 250-year-old cottage is a former miller's house. It nestles on the edge of fields in a stunning garden close to Phantassie Doocot, the River Tyne weir and fish ladder, and the ancient Preston Mill. There are gorgeous views all around.

The space

You may be lucky and spot the kingfishers and otters on the river. Only the birdsong will disturb your peace, yet you'll be just a half mile from all the village amenities - including two pubs and a general store.

Guest access

You will have your own patio garden with garden furniture and a bird table. We'll give you plenty of birdseed too. There's a cosy open fire in the book-lined sitting-room and we'll provide all your logs free of charge. The cottage is equipped to a high standard.

Interaction with guests

Our home is the adjoining East Wing, so we'll be on hand to help if needed, but you won't see us unless you need us. The West Wing is completely self-contained.

This is a fantastic location for some peace and quiet in a tranquil setting. A great base from which to visit East Lothian attractions.

The West Wing is a genuine gem! Tucked away yet close to the centre of East Linton... just a short stroll over the river and you're there. And once there, try the Linton Hotel and Steakhouse (that's a recommendation coming from a vegetarian!). John appeared as if by magic upon our arrival, showed us the ropes, and then disappeared equally quickly! He and Val were always on hand if needed however, and they were a great source of advice for places to visit. The cottage was clean and full of charm. Despite our short stay we became very attached to it. Val designed the garden herself, we learnt, and it is an inspiring place to gather thoughts at the beginning and end of the day. East Linton is the perfect base for exploring a huge variety of things to see and do in the area. We walked and cycled parts of The John Muir Way, took an exhilarating boat trip around the world's largest gannet colony on Bass Rock from North Berwick harbour, paddled in the rock pools and strolled the sandy beaches around Dunbar, and visited the Flight Museum too. Book now :) you certainly won't be disappointed!! Thanks John and Val. Charlie.

the West Wing is a lovely, cosy and comfortable home with lots of space, privacy and a real fire. It's surrounded by gorgeous countryside and only a hop skip and a jump from a wonderful village with deli and award winning butcher. Val and Ian are excellent hosts - providing all that is necessary and a warm welcome then leaving you to yourself.
