ESCAPE THE CITY CROWDS, PARK YOUR CAR WITH EASE AND ENJOY

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in West Lothian - Crosswoodhill Farm

3 or 6 bedroom cottages, sleeps max. 12 people

Graded annually by VisitScotland as being 'of a very good /excellent / exceptional standard' our award-winning properties offer almost everything you could wish for to make your stay not just enjoyable but memorably wonderful.

A great base from which to explore the wealth and variety of landscape, attractions and activities that Scotland offers, guests talk of “coming home” to Crosswoodhill. Whilst the cooks in your party benefit from excellent kitchen facilities to serve up good Scottish fare, the rest of you can relax in front of an open fire, switch off and enjoy background music, a book, board game or a good film. Or, pull on your boots to explore our livestock farm and listen to birdsong....

Pictured here are our properties, all uniquely different, but all sharing the Crosswoodhill trademarks of charm, character, warmth, style, home comforts and caring hosts. Child, wheelchair and pet–friendly, our holiday cottages extend an all-year-round welcome to families, groups of friends, business people and all who revel in the freedom self-catering offers.

White, light and bright, with beautiful fittings and fabrics, the interiors are exceptionally tasteful and pleasing to the eye. 'The decor is superb... the eye for detail amazing' is a typical comment in our Visitors' Books and feedback forms.

Details for holiday cottage Steading Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6, 1 Bathroom

The 4 Star quality grading awarded by VisitScotland (formerly the Scottish Tourist Board) to this annually inspected property allows us officially to describe it as ' Excellent ' accommodation (Inspected and graded in May 2011, Steading Cottage scored well within the 75 - 86% Quality Assurance range for 4 Star Scottish Tourist Board accommodation). This is the cottage for those happy to be at the heart of the farm. Creatively transformed in 1998 from dereliction into a wonderful home, it is white, light, spacious, inviting and warm with its multi-fuel stove and oil-fired central heating. Set back from the road with a small front garden, this detached cottage nestles right beside farm buildings and a field. The reduced rental reflects the possibility that despite thick walls and double glazing you may hear tractors, cattle or perhaps experience the odd farm whiff outside! Curiously enough this has proved to be somewhat of an attraction rather than a negative, especially to youngsters.
Suitability:
  • wheelchair accessible

Located on the north side of the Pentland Hills, 3 miles to the west of the boundary with the Pentland Hills Regional Park.

Well-placed in West Lothian, Crosswoodhill Farm is the ideal holiday base for exploring large areas of scenic Scotland and its cities. Radiate north, south, east or west: you won't be disappointed....

Imagine the best of both worlds... two stunning cities, Edinburgh and Glasgow, within an hour's drive and .....midway .......Crosswoodhill, a haven of rural tranquillity.

Ideally situated for exploring the scenic splendours of the Borders, Perthshire, Fife, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. An hour transports you north to Rob Roy and Braveheart Country. South, just 15 miles away, lies spectacular New Lanark World Heritage Centre, with Burns and golf country not too far away. Even Inverness and monster hunting in the Highlands is achievable in a day!

Less than an hour's drive away are palaces, castles, stately homes, a huge range of museums, a zoo and butterfly farm. With hill walking, fishing, golf, an impressive choice of indoor leisure pursuits and wonderful shops, galleries, theatres and restaurants all so close, there's an amazing amount to see and do --- for all ages, all interests and in all weathers.

Level wooden / tiled floors throughout. Bathroom layout allows full turning circle for wheelchairs + flat access to power shower. Space in porch for mobility aids, hoist etc. if needed. Entry is through a roomy porch / utility room. Large enough for all your fishing or golf gear, bicycles, or car-roof rack, it’s just as ideal as a temporary home for your dog for just a few hours as it can be shut off from the rest of the house.
