This COTTAGE is surrounded by countryside and has incredible walks on the doorstep, both in the beautiful historic Cammo Estate and also along the River Almond all the way (2 mile river walk) to picturesque Cramond with its beach, harbour and access to Cramond Island. The uninterrupted Views from all cottage windows are exquisite, looking over colourful fields, Turnhouse golf course and all the way over to Edinburgh Airport.

The Cottage is only 2 miles from the village of Corstorphine with its many cafes and independent shops. Edinburgh Zoo is also under 4 miles away and there is easy access to the city centre.

A lovely cottage in a great setting. Perfect for a relaxing restful break

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a well maintained comfortable property - real home from home.We could not fault it in anyway.

The surrounding area is lovely with excellent walks with the dog - particularly the Almond/ Cramond Walkway.

Watching the planes land at the airport whilst relaxing in the hot tub was amazing.

Easy access to the centre of Edinburgh by efficient taxi service.

Thank you Vicky and Guy for giving us the opportunity to stay in your super cottage and for the welcome pack received on our arrival

Great place for family and dog

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped with the obvious bonus of the sauna and hot tub. We were left a very nice selection of necessities on arrival. Loved the fire on cold days.

Also a note for dog owners. There’s a very nice dog room but also plenty of room elsewhere for the dog to lie down. The garden is very safe and easily enclosed to keep the dog in.

Perfect location for our Gem of a vacation

  • 5 of 5

From the first communication with Vicky to the final check out notice, we were given wonderful information and gracious treatment. The cottage is truly a beautiful place. The hot tub and sauna were such a treat and we had an incredible vacation. Upon arriving, we were greeted with a basket of goodies that we enjoyed immensely. The cottage is cozy, fun and comfortable with the amenities needed to enjoy time away. We would recommend this fantastic property to anyone whether for a romantic getaway or a family gathering. Thank you for the fabulous memories we can enjoy now that we are back to the routine of life.
