Three new stone-built barn conversions in a rural setting, each cottage has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 6 (plus sofa bed in the second public room). Two of the rooms have king size beds (master en suite) and the third is a twin room. Wood burning stove in the living area; high ceilings. Both Rose Cottage and Appletree Cottage have their own secluded hot tub. There is free WiFi and a shared playing field and swing park.
If Rose Cottage is full please look at Honeysuckle or Appletree. The layout is the same in all 3.
Special deals on the golf course next door and at Bowden Springs Fishery. Jet ski trips on the nearby River Forth can be booked. Craigie's Farm, Sainsbury and Tesco will deliver food. Good rail links to Falkirk, Stirling, Edinburgh and Glasgow from Linlithgow station. Easy access to many local tourist attractions in central Scotland, e.g., Linlithgow Palace, Bo'ness Steam Railway, Falkirk Wheel and shopping centres such as Livingston, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Beautiful walks in the area in the Bathgate Hills, Beecraigs Country Park, along the Union Canal or around Linlithgow Loch. Linlithgow itself has many cafes, bars, restaurants and takeaways. There is a farmers' market at the Cross every month.
Our group consisted of 8 people in total, 2 families, both with 2 children aged between 7 and 3. Can honestly say that everyone had a brilliant time.
The cottage was immaculate upon arrival, very spacious, even sleeping 8. Our 2 kids slept on the sofa bed on the gallery area (playroom by day) and thought it was the best thing ever!! Both sets of parents slept in the large bedrooms on the ground floor, which essentially had an en-suite each (1 jack and jill). Kitchen had everything you would have at home, and the lounge/dining room could handle 8 for dinner easily. Outside, there was plenty to keep the kids (and adults occupied)....tree swing, a toy hunt in the woods arranged by Findlay (the owner) where he hid various cuddly toys in the trees and we had a competition to see who could find the most. (Findlay kindly brought over prizes for both winners and losers). Also, there is a large grass area where the kids played, with swings and chute. The hot tub was the best though....kids played by day and adults relaxed in it at night....then jumping back inside to the lovely stove to warm up again. Beautiful scenery and all facilities you need nearby if the weather not great. Overall, fabulous time and going back over the new year period for a week!
