Mill Cottage, Romanno Bridge, West Linton, Edinburgh
A cosy, comfortable and spacious semi-detached cottage, dating back to 1830, but completely renovated inside.
Downstairs there is the family kitchen area, and a wet room next to the sunny twin bedroom. The whole ground-floor area is wheelchair friendly, and is tiled throughout to create a relaxing sense of space and light.
The kitchen is fully equipped with integral fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, electric cooker with ceramic hob, and a microwave
Upstairs there is a cosy sitting-room with a wood burning stove for those who enjoy a real fire. You will love the view from the windows - looking out across our 30 acre field to the hills beyond. There is a colour TV and a DVD/video player. In the bookcase, you will find a wide range of reading material, with games and jigsaws. There is also lots of tourist information, with details of local walks, and where to find fishing permits for further afield.
The tiled bathroom has a bath and shower. There is a spacious bedroom with a double bed, and a single bedroom. A hair-drier is provided. All rooms are tastefully furnished.
Since we live next door to the cottage, we are usually available to recommend activities or places to suit your individual needs.
You will find that the cottage is fully equipped for your holiday.
We don't allow any smoking in the cottage.
Well behaved dogs are welcome but must be kept under good control at all times due to local livestock, and must not be left alone in the cottage at any time. We have a 30 acre meadow which is ideal for dog walking.
**Please note, we have an option for long term lets, £850 per week, until the beginning of August, when holiday lets will be available again after that, £450 - £550 per week.**
