Lovely stay! You have obviously put a lot of thought and attention into the cabin. Thank you so much!
6 Aug 2016 by James C from Norfolk - stayed during August 2016
This is a lovely cabin with everything you need. It was so nice to go somewhere with all the creature comforts in tranquil surroundings. It was lovely to see the odd deer and we were lucky enough to get within 50m of a buzzard perched on a stump. There are leaflets for days out and we would suggest a visit to 5 sisters zoo which the children loved. Dave & Fi were great hosts and we thoroughly recommend this cabin.
03 Aug 2016 by Aline J from Antwerp - stayed during July 2016
We were lucky to spend a week in this cozy and new cottage. The house is superbly equipped and comfortable, the beds are perfect and the children loved the games and nature books.
The terrace overlooks the hill which you have to yourself, apart from some sheep, cows & deer. Fiona and Dave, who live a stone throw away are lovely, attentive and interesting hosts. We loved the fact that we stayed. It’s very tranquil but yet close enough to Edinburgh, The Pentland Hills with astonishing walking and cycling trails, coastal area, Glasgow – would’ve loved to stay a bit longer!
27 Jun 2016 by Laura M from Lewis - stayed during June 2016
Fantastic log cabin situated in Kirknewton. Fee and Dave were exceptionally welcoming and the tasteful cabin is perfectly laid out as a home from home. Kitchen is fully equipped and we even got welcome drinks and fresh flowers. Great location and easy to find. Double bed and twin room with a shared bathroom. The rest of the cabin is open planned kitchen/living area and is really spacious. Highly recommended and we will be back again.
