“A truly memorable holiday in a wonderful lodge in a peaceful setting!” Stayed with my partner and teenage children. Very spacious and comfortable. Quality of bedding was excellent. Biggar had great eating establishments. Lodge had everything you could want- a home from home. Spotlessly clean.
“Nothing short of Fabulous!” This was the best self catering cottage we've stayed in while visiting Scotland. If you are looking for a century old one bedroom cottage in a medieval former market town near Edinburgh or Glasgow (30 minutes drive), this is it! The town of Biggar is full of history, charm and warm people. Ferniehaugh is perfectly located on a lane that parallels the main street, or "High Street" which is less than a mile from end to end, but bass all you need for a great holiday. Four great pubs (that's important) all within walking distance from Ferniehaugh and "The Crown" & "The Elfinstone" offer great food. Numerous restaurants and cafe's which includes The Taj Mahal, and award winning Indian restaurant which offers the best Indian food in Scotland. (No exaggeration)
There are lots of little boutique shop offering everything from souvenirs clothing. Great butchers shops, a bakery and the best ice cream in the UK at "Taylors" on the high street. Biggar is soooo worth a visit.
Ferniehaugh is the ideal place to stay if you are looking for a one bedroom self catering cottage. First of all Hilary, the owner is fantastic. She really makes you feel at home. The little stone cottage it's self looks small from the outside, but when you enter from the lane it opens up to a lovely and spacious living area complete with wood stove and comfortable furnishings that match the architecture and style of the cottage perfectly. Through the french doors you will find a large modern kitchen and eating area, and beyond that a very comfortable solarium. perfect for two, but room enough to entertain a few friends that may live in the area. The bedroom is also deceptively large and is equipped with the most important piece of furniture in a self catering cottage... an extremely comfortable bed.! The stairs are quite steep, so good mobility is a must. The cottage is very well kept and very clean. It has all the amenities of a modern home which include TV DVD player, washing machine, dishwasher, fully equipped kitchen and gas central heating with an abundance of hot water for showers. Parking is redly available on the lane or on the street next to the lane. Bottom line, this is a great place to call home when visiting the Biggar area. We will be back!
NEAR EDINBURGH Ampherlaw Farmhouse Self Catering Cottage
Beautiful cottage in lovely surroundings
The cottage at Ampherlaw Farm was a true delight. Very comfortable and well equipped. The welcome hamper of groceries was lovely. We especially enjoyed the very local eggs. The cat was very friendly as well, came out to greet us and be fussed a couple of times. When we has a problem with our car the owners were very helpful, loaning a piece of equipment to help us inflate the tyres. Carnwath village is not impressive but there are lots of other places nearby which are lovely and the cottage was truly lovely. …
