Goldenhills, also known as Ebenezer Hall, is an architect-designed holiday home that preserves many of the original features of this 1905 meeting hall - 9 coloured-glass arch-windows and a staircase hand-built from the restored timber of the church pews. It has been converted to the highest specification. Solid oak floors and top-of-the-range furniture contribute to an overall sense of calm and luxury.

Ideal holiday for families who enjoy the outdoors, or if you want a quiet week reading, writing, painting or just relaxing. Our guests tell us that the house is fantastic for a winter break or summer walking holiday. The large open-plan living area also makes it a favourite for families with young children.

Situated in the heart of the Southern Uplands, Leadhills is Scotland's second highest village, surrounded by beautiful hills, yet only an hour's drive from the centre of Glasgow. A popular spot with walkers, hikers and cyclists, it lies a short walk from the Southern Upland Way. The village is a mile from the Dumfries & Galloway border and has a hotel, a shop, and a narrow-gauge railway. There are also gold-panning excursions - you might be lucky...

Sleeps 8 (3 king sized beds, 2 full-sized bunk beds). 3 luxury bathrooms (one en-suite). Off-season we would consider 1-2 bedroom lets.

The South Lanarkshire region

Beautiful rural location in the heart of the Southern Uplands, a mile from Dumfries and Galloway. Leadhills is Scotland's second highest village, famous for its 'Scottish gold'. It has the atmosphere of the Scottish Highlands and yet is just an hour's drive from Glasgow. It is surrounded by miles of marvellous hill tracks.

There are many interesting shops in the area, with Biggar the nearest centre. We are also centrally located for a great day of shopping or a visit to the theatre in Glasgow or Edinburgh.
