Amazing place! Beautiful and spacious house, just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at The Retreat in Redmill. From the start of the weekend to the end we felt comfortable in the very cosy and homely surroundings. The hardest decision we had to make over the weekend was whether to go in the hot tub, swimming pool or sauna! The facilities were superb and allowed for a fantastic weekend to relax and catchup with friends. Communication with the owner was very quick and easy and we would definitely recommend this stunning place to stay to anyone in the future.

Lovely property. The whole group loved it. I would rent it again.

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and we'll presented property. The group of us had a great stay, the space and layout is perfect. We found the pool a bit cold but no one was that bothered. Checkout time is quite early but it did make us get up and get on with it. Like a previous review, I am still waiting for my deposit to be returned 2 wks on.Other than that I can't really fault the place and would recommend it to anyone.

Despite one or two minor issues on arrival, which were immediately rectified, and us only locating four bathrooms and one shower room, we had a lovely holiday. (Details state 6 bathrooms)

Enjoyed our stay but still waiting on deposit

  • 3 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. Adjoining pool to the main bedroom gave it the wow factor! However on the Saturday morning we had no hot water for showers in the main house so this was a bit disappointing.

What is more disappointing and unacceptable is that I am still waiting to receive my deposit back or even hear from the owners regarding this despite sending an email asking about it. 14 people are out of pocket. We have been waiting a whole week.Hopefully will get a response soon.

Owner's Response: I was sorry to hear you had no water or WI -FI on the Saturday, as you did not contact us this was something we did not have the opportunity to put right for you. Had you contacted us I'm sure this could have been rectified easily. I apologise for the delay in returning the deposit, we were on holiday and didn't pick your email up until our return. The deposit has now been refunded.

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.
