Lovely chalet fully equipped for a comfortable city-escape!
The property is very clean and with all the possible comfort: tv, dish washer, kitchen, comfortable shower, comfortable bed, very good heating system...amazing outside space to play or drink coffe! the location makes it the perfect place to escape the city and enjoy the nature. With a short walk it’s possible to take the bus to go to the city of Edinburg which, I didn’t know, it’s beautiful. The landlady Resy gave us two bikes and we went to the closest shoot in just 10min. The villane of Balerno is very small and well maintained. I am very happy with the entire experience, I highly recommend it. Resy also prepared for us home made bread and brownies and surprised us with some chocolate- rabbit for Easter.
Thank you very much we hope to come back soon!
Stay in the Pentland Hills near Balerno - fabulous!
Excellent! Very friendly & helpful host. We hope we can stay again. Thank you very much perfect. Richard & Bridget
Perfect hideaway, great location, great host
This hideaway was the perfect getaway from the city. The hut was very well-equipped with everything we could ask for, while located in an ideal setting for walks and hikes. Although it was so close to Edinburgh city, it was a proper rural retreat. Resy and her son were lovely hosts: they were very approachable, easily contactable, the directions they gave to the house were flawless and they even left a welcoming breakfast hamper to boot. Overall we were overjoyed with our stay, and hope to be back soon.
wonderful hosts. wonderful clean chalet. Wonderful friendly farm animals. Will be going back again.
neat, tidy and clean chalet. All basic essentials provided. Perfectly located for walks and frequent public transport to access central Edinburgh.
I can not rate highly enough. The place is wonderful
We have just had 4 days of bliss. The lovely family welcomed us with genuine friendliness and were pleased to help in any way. They introduced us to the pet pig, chickens, goats and rabbits who were adorable and became a big part of the charm of the place.
The accommodation is superb. There is a welcome breakfast basket and the use of a few larder items if you have forgotten anything. The kitchen is well equipped and even has a dishwasher and tablets. There is plenty of room and features the use of two double beds that convert back to sofas but we had plenty of room when we left ours out. The accommodation would suit a family with younger children who are prepared to share a double bed behind a curtain. You all share the same space.
Outside you will find a trampoline, a zip wire, a tree swing, a slide/swing set and a set of stocks (I was tempted). There was also other play equipment and it was all close enough for you to watch over the children as they play. The location is rural and would suit walkers but it is close to a lovely village which is easily reached by car or by foot.
If Edinburgh city is part of your plans the accommodation is close enough to travel in but far enough away if you want peace and quiet.
I can not recommend this place highly enough.
Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. It was a real pleasure to have you as guests and your enthusiasm for the place and it's animals was fantastic. Betsy says hello too and she would love to see back some time or welcome your friends. With the very best regards, Resy
We stayed her for 3 nights in April and had the best time. Resy was so lovely and the cabin if fully equipped with everything you need. We were greeted by Betsy the pig, chickens, rabbits and goats! We mentioned it was a Birthday trip and Resy surprised us with a homemade cake, card and little present...a lovely touch. I would highly recommend staying here if you want a fantastic cabin in the gorgeous Pentland Hills along with a lovely host and animals on your doorstop. We will be booking again 100%.
