This is a great cottage in a really nice village location, with easy access into Edinburgh by bus or driving (using the park and ride at Straiton) and surrounding area. Can recommend The Old Bakehouse for superb food. There is also The Gordon Arms Hotel, which has a good menu too. The Welcome pack provided by the owners is a lovely touch, especiallRead morey after a long journey. The village has its own Co-op, which is useful, and a well equipped play park for young children, adjacent to the tea room. Hide
