The Experience

Richard and Kate make you feel like you’re staying with friends in the country for the weekend – they’re relaxed and entertaining. Breakfasts are moreish – eggs from the quails and fresh things from the mature walled garden; and you can book supper too.

The Georgian farmhouse is tucked into the soft hills of the Clyde Valley; there are 26 acres of farmland to soak up with Hebridean sheep, horses, kune-kune pigs and friendly alpacas children love to pet. You’re only two miles from the market town of Biggar, you can walk there along the old Glasgow to Peebles road, now only a faint track.

It’s pleasant to retire to quiet, spacious rooms with bucolic views after a day marauding around this untamed landscape – there’s a walk through fields to the Clyde river for trout fishing and a ten-minute drive takes you to the base of Tinto Hill, a steep scramble rewards you with views to the Trossachs (on a clear day). Later, tuck nippers up in bunks and slip back for a snifter in front of the log fire in the sitting room.

The neighbourhood

Cormiston Farm lies in the rolling hills of the Clyde Valley, two miles from the market town of Biggar, which has a good selection of pubs, restaurants and museums. There are walks from the farm - up onto Biggar Common, or to the Iron Age hill-fort at Quothquan Law – with spectacular views of the valley. A walk through fields takes you down to the river; the Clyde is small here, with trout and grayling swimming in the pools along the gravel shore. A short drive to the base of Tinto Hill allows you to walk straight up to the summit. It's a short but steep climb, but the views on a good day extend 70 miles to the Trossachs.

Local points of interest from Richard Philipps

  • Mountain Biking in Glentress Forest provides some of the best trails in the United Kingdom.
  • The Botanic Garden at Dawyck is one of the world's finest arboreta. 'Seasonal displays of abundant exotic and native plants provide a breathtaking backdrop of colour throughout the year.'
  • At New Lanark the beautifully restored 18th century cotton mill village nestles in the spectacular Clyde Valley; this World Heritage Site is less than 20 minutes from Cormiston Farm.
  • The town of Biggar has some great pubs and restaurants, local shops and museums.


Richard Philipps

Richard enjoys cooking simple recipes with good, local food and matching them to delicious wines – they are licensed so do book supper. The walled garden and poly-tunnel take up a lot of his time, raising vegetables for the house, and flowers and shrubs for the garden. Kate, when she’s not working in Edinburgh, spends her time looking after the horses and encouraging the children in cross-country, show jumping and dressage. They want their guests to feel at home.
