"Serenio" ( Serene Studio ;) is purposely built to host our relatives when staying with us in the beautiful scenic surroundings of the Pentland Hills close to Edinburgh. More and more friends-of-friends have discovered our hideway so we are now managing it through this portal.
It's setting is idyllic and private in 2 acres of woodland also providing space to enjoy and for our chickens, goats and pig to roam. Located about 300m above sea level there are fantastic views over the hills down to the Firth of Forth with Edinburgh Castle in the distant skyline.
We are in the beautiful Pentland Hills Regional Park where you will have straight from "Serenio" access to an abundance of nature, hills, streams, lochs, hiking trails, mountain bike tracks etc, but most of all peace and beauty.
Nevertheless it is a short walk to the small nearby conservation villages with local shops, but where one can take the famous double-decker bus (every 10 min at daytime and also a Nightbus) which takes you in 30 minutes into the city centre. The City of Edinburgh is beautiful, historic and bustling with an abundance of (free) museums, architectonic beauty and cultural events.
In one sentence: raw nature and cosmopolitan experiences combined and we ourselves never fail to discover something new and interesting after the almost 20 years we now lived in Scotland.
It typically sleeps 2 and has en-suite bathroom facilities, but the setup is flexible with two double daybeds. With its full facilities and kitchen it is available to rent as self-catering accommodation.
For children there is plenty of play equipment scattered around the woodland including a massive trampoline, swings, tumble bar, flying fox and the various tree houses.
There is also an option to order your breakfast basket with fresh eggs from our hens, local produce and home-made bread of choice.
