“Stunning Lodge with everything you need for a family get away.”
“Amazingly clean, tranquil location. Hot tub and sauna welcome addition. Near to train station to access Edinburgh.”
“Log burner great, clean. Great hot tub. Didn’t use the sauna but it looked good. Lovely walking around the farm. Close to lots of little villages. We went to Rosslyn Chapel, only 15 mins away. Great Wi-Fi, we took our Firestick. It was lovely waking up to the horses and walking up to the Highland cattle. We’ll be back.”
“The sauna and hot tub were great. Beds were incredibly comfortable and nice to have the en-suite on two bedrooms.”
“Beautiful surroundings, very peaceful and relaxing. The lodge is big and comfortable for 6 adults. Hot water in the hot tub and the sauna heat up very quickly. We brought our own gazebo as it was raining and there’s no roof over the hot tub. Highly recommend.”
