One of three converted farm buildings set around a rustic courtyard on a working sheep farm. You’re high on the side of the Pentland Hills, ensconced in a rural idyll down a winding farm track but only ten miles from Edinburgh.When the weather is foul cosy up by the wood-burner – there are plenty of books and games. The open plan kitchen has all you need and ‘Cook’ in Morningside will deliver homemade meals to the door. In summer you’ll be in the garden (west facing for marvellous sunsets) with a barbecue. The Flotterstone Inn is ten minutes in the car.Susan and her family live in the main farmhouse and are on hand if needed; they’ll leave you with scones, fresh-cut flowers and as many logs from home-grown timber as you need. This is prime hill tramping territory, or head into Edinburgh for city thrills.
