Outdoor lovers and couples will adore this charming cottage for two nestled in the heart of a picture-perfect Scottish borders village.
Small but perfectly formed
Braemar is a perfect cosy country retreat for couples and outdoor lovers such as walkers or cyclists who relish a pint, a bit of local banter and a crackling log fire in a friendly local pub after a long day out in the open air. Close to Edinburgh, Braemar is in walking distance of the wild and beautiful Pentland Hills, the Gordon Arms pub, the Old Bakehouse restaurant, and the very pretty village green and Old Toll Tea Room.
This traditional stone built cottage has oodles of character and charm. Step inside to the wonderfully inviting contemporary living space in heathery hues with an original fireplace and woodburner making Braemar ideal for relaxation, dining or toasty evenings in. Period features and a chic country style with natural wool blankets, soft sink-in sofas, tweeds and sprigs of heather. Next to the wood burner is a small dining table - just perfect for two.
Please note that that this is a traditional period cottage and a number of rooms have lower level ceiling heights, particularly in the kitchen and the first floor bedroom which has a coombed ceiling. If you have any concerns, please contact us before booking.
