Great care has been taken in the design to reflect the colours and textures of the surrounding Pentland Hills Regional Park, throughout the seasons.
In the heart of peaceful countryside yet only half an hour from Edinburgh city centre, the hayloft is in a unique location for your perfect holiday.The hayloft has a double bedroom with en-suite toilet and wash hand basin. There are two bedside tables and a wardrobe and soft Egyptian linen. The twin room has two single beds and a large cupboard for clothes.
The Bathroom has a large bath with centre taps and an over bath shower.
Light streams into the principle living space, which accommodates the Lounge, Kitchen and Dining area. The high ceiling and exposed original timber beams create an impressive and airy space to relax and enjoy views of the Pentland Hills to the South. There is a wood burning stove, which heats the room well in the colder months.
On ground level a separate Laundry Room houses the washing machine, freezer and a molly maid rack for drying clothes and space to store bikes.
There is a small enclosed garden with garden table and chairs for the patio and BBQ for the long summer nights.
You can walk or cycle directly into the Pentlandhills regional park from the Hayloft gate.
