About Craig Wood

My name is Craig Wood. I have owned this property since 2009 and was my home until recently. I grew up in Aberlady, which is a small village a mere 2.5 miles from Gullane. I own a caterng company called Craig Wood Catering, which provides mainly marquee weddings in and around East Lothian. I live with my partner Lisa and our son Josh. My hobbies are Golf (a must if you live in this area) and playing the bagpipes. I take great pride in everything that I do and I will always do my best to ensure that your stay is exactly what you are looking for.

Craig Wood purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Craig Wood chose East Lothian

Muirfield Steading is a remarkably unique converted Steading (or barn) which is approximatly 30 years old. It still has the old stone facings on the outside and remarkably modern on the inside. It has been finished to a very high standard of which I am sure you will enjoy as much as I have for so many years. It's location on the edge of the famous village of Gullane, makes it far enough away from any noise but close enough to walk to all that the village has to offer, including bars, restaurants, shops, coffee shops, Golf courses, beach etc

What makes this cottage unique

Definitely the old stone building, with open plan, spacious living area to enjoy everyones company whilst watching television, dining, cooking or simply reading a magazine after a hard days activities.

A great holiday house in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a week in April with my hubby,our two boys aged 13 and 10 and my mum aged 78. It was perfect for our needs, being on a small, quiet estate, and only 15 minutes walk to the town centre, and similar distance to the fabulous beach. What we liked best was there are so many nice places to cycle to - along the John Muir Way, and therefore totally traffic- free.:) We only used the car once all week. Self catering was easy in the house, but we also ate out a couple of times, which was positive both times. The bedrooms in the house are small, but the beds are very comfy. We enjoyed the novelty of a TV in the bathroom, and the shower in the ensuite is lovely too.The living room / kitchen is compact, though cooking was easily managed. We are tall people, and used all the space. Had we been 6 adults we might have felt a bit cramped at times, but if there are kids in your party you will be fine for space. Would definitely return and happy to recommend.

Excellent property, well maintained, like home from home.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely bungalow on the edge of Gullane, with all essentials and plenty more besides, the coffee machine in the kitchen was an excellent bonus. The property is about a mile from the centre of Gullane which has a good selection of pubs, restaurants and a great fish and chip shop! The golf in the surrounding area is outstanding and plenty of choice to satisfy all levels of the game. The North Berwick coast is beautiful with great walks and if fine then lovely sunsets across the Forth estuary. Well worth going back again.

Fabby cottage

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this fantastic cottage with 5 friends. It had everything you would need, set in a quiet location on the edge of Gullane. We stayed 4 nights, eating in the village on the Friday, eating in on the Saturday but with the meal being prepared, cooked and served by the chef owner! Definitely worth doing.

The cottage was spotlessly clean and very comfortable.

First rate with everything a group of golfers require

  • 5 of 5

The property is in immaculate condition and was exceptionally clean on arrival. The local information provided was useful and the recommendations, some of which our group followed, up to a high standard. The Old Clubhouse in Gullane is excellent and I would recommend the food and selection of wine/beers. Also first rate service.

We were fortunate with the weather which added to our enjoyment and, should we decide to golf in this area again, Craig's property will be our choice of accomodation.

Gullane is a great base for Golfing, (22 courses within 15 miles) Enjoying the award winning beach, Join the John Muir Walk or take in the nature reserve at Aberlady. Edinburgh is only a short train journey away and with both brewery tours and Whisky distillery tours with in a 15 minute drive, there really is something to do for everyone.
