"Wow! What a fantastic house. The eye for detail is quite amazing." "We are thrilled at the amazing serenity, charm and beauty of every detail of our stay." "The cottage was everything we could wish for and more - warm, light, beautifully furnished... to be able to step outside the door and hear curlews, plovers and skylarks singing was just wonderful." Just three comments from the Visitors' Books in these award-winning holiday cottages with built-in customer care. Both on the same farm, each very different and all close to Edinburgh, just a short drive along the A70.
