"Superb Cottage"

Top class cottage in quiet rural location.Welcoming,helpful but unobtrusive owners.Ideally placed to explore this part of Scotland.We felt so comfortable that it was a struggle to go out and explore! Rail travel from nearby Armadale to Edinburgh/Glasgow is cheap and reliable with clean trains.

"This cottage is perfect, home from home , peaceful and spotlessly clean."

Just returned from a fantastic holiday. Everything about this cottage is lovely. The setting is peaceful and quiet we felt instantly relaxed. The owners are very warm, friendly and you could tell that they genuinely wanted you to have a good holiday.The cottage is very well equipped it had everything you needed.Comfy beds, underfloor heating, good shower, internet access, dishwasher,lovely shortbread in welcome pack!. We didnt want to leave when time to go home! Armadale train station 10 mins away with free car park you can go to Edinburgh or Glasgow easily. Also recommend Falkirk wheel and the pandas at Edinburgh zoo. Would book this cottage again and have already recommended to family.
