What a house!!

  • 5 out of 5
Absolutely loved this house!

Its was spotlessly clean, plenty room, facilities are outstanding - the pool was lovely and warm and attached to the house. The hot tub worked perfectly throughout our stay and the owner popped in to refresh water and chemical it for us - staff were lovely to!, We had a ball, kids loved it and can't wait to go back,

They don't advertise it but there are 2 beauty rooms which are just for guests using the house, 3 of the Mums in our party had ESPA facials which were fabulous :) def recommend :))

Absoloutely Amazing !

  • 5 out of 5
i booked woodfield spa for my friends hen do, 9 of us attended as the place looks amazing on the photos. i then read some bad reviews on tripadvisor so was quite worried what we were getting.
when we arrived it was the most amazing cottage...like no place i have ever visited, we were all blown away with how beautiful it was, the hen even cried she was that overwhelmed!
where to start....the house was immaculate, the decor was modern throughout. The beds were so comfortable and there was plenty of bathrooms to chose from. There was always somewhere to go if you wanted some quiet time alone to read/make a phone call. The kitchen was fully equipped, dishwasher, cutlery, condiments and even food itself. We were met by a cleaner and Paul the maintenance guy and they were both very friendly and showed us around, told us how to use everything, then left us to get on with our stay. The only issue we had is the hot tub didnt work on the first night, so we called Paul who came out the next day to fix it, then it was up and running for the rest of the stay.
We aimed to spend a couple of days in Edinburgh to see some of the sites but the cottage was so relaxing and comfortable we ended up spending most of our time in the hot tub or pool.
The cottage is 30 minutes from Edinburgh which costs around 30 pounds in a taxi and 15 minutes from Edinburgh airport.
I cant recommend this place anymore than i have, ignore the bad reviews it was amazing and well worth the money we will definitely be looking to go back.

Great party house

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great family party at this house to celebrate joint birthdays. We had a variety of ages from babies to pensioners! The rooms were great and the house was clean and well presented. The pool was the icing on the cake and used by everyone. The hot tub was great fun. Remember it takes a while to heat up!!
We used Keith to cater and he was fantastic. He produced a vg buffet for 20 people.
The reception rooms are large and there is plenty room for 14 to eat at the table.
I have recommended this house to many friends and family.
The location is not picturesque but handy for Edinburgh. It is secluded and we were completely unaware of our surroundings or the close location of the motorway.

Nice BUT.....

  • 3 out of 5
The pool in this house is fantastic to have and the house is spacious, comfortably sleeping 9 people. We had a lovely relaxing winter weekend as a group of 8 'girls' celebrating 20 years of friendship.
However, although the holiday rentals website has been updated since our booking, we were expecting a welcome pack and pool slippers which were missing and there were not enough robes for everyone. The 5 double bedrooms were 4 and a single and a 'home entertainment system' was an old telly/DVD with a sky box which is not compatible with a PSP2 and on which the colour went during our stay. The owners own website still contains these inaccurate descriptions. The property was not at a high level of cleanliness - other guests had commented on this in the guest book- sticky marks on tables, dirty windows and oven. Unfortunately we had an accidental spillage of red wine on lounge carpet which fell and smashed from a wine carrier as we were leaving and removing our belongings (have to go thro lounge from kitchen to front door - beware!) and our whole very large deposit has been retained.
Location of house is not the most picturesque but is central being midway between Edin and Glasgow (both 30-45mins by car)

Owner's Response: Woodfield sits in fully enclosed secluded gardens, It offers a great location between Glasgow & Edinburgh. There are four double bedrooms and one single bedroom, sleeping 9 adults in total. We always maintain a high level of cleanliness and since opening in 2005 have achieved a 100% customer feedback rate for facilities and cleanliness. 85% of our guests return year after year. The TV is two years old as is the DVD player. and Sky Box. There is a back door from the kitchen which is useful to avoid going through the main lounge with items which may spill or smash.

We understand that it is frustrating to lose the good house keeping deposit however in instance of this review the deposit retained to renew carpets and hoover which were both badly damaged.

The town of Redmill is situated 15 minutes from Edinburgh & 25 minutes from Glasgow and is perfectly placed for touring the Scottish Borders, Highland & islands and Central Scotland.

Woodfield House is situated in secluded luxury development classed as 'countryside' yet only min. from the motorway junction.

There are plenty of activities nearby, shopping for instance can be found at Designer Outlet McArthur Glen, or Edinburgh offers a vast range of designer shops, including Louis Vutton, Armani, Harvey Nichols, Jenners as well as the major high street brands.

Golf can be found in abundance in Scotland, we have affiliations with local golf courses. We can also organise trips to St Andrews, North Berwick or indeed any courses in Scotland.

Restaurants: Plenty of wonderful restaurants can be found nearby, the infamous Champaneys in Linlithgow is definitely worth a visit.

Golf: Stunning scenery. Friendly people. Great shopping. Historic buildings. Crisp, fresh mornings melting into mellow afternoons. Some of the liveliest night life in Europe. Welcome to Scotland - and welcome to Execulet, your Scottish hideaway with a difference. No matter when you come to Scotland, you'll find a warm welcome waiting – if only the same could be said of our weather!

Golf: From St. Andrew's Old Course to the stunning scenery at Gleneagles Hotel and Golf Club, you won't find better gold than right here in Scotland. Perthshire alone boasts over 40 courses, and the rest of the country is equally well-supplied.
