Come for thousands of hectares of beautiful countryside in this Regional Park, with challenging hills and gentle walks around reservoirs. Cyclists and hikers will find over a hundred kilometres of marked paths. It all feels remote, surrounded by hills and many sheep, but Edinburgh is only 30 minutes in the car.
Your local stone cottage has a contemporary feel indoors, with neutral colours, wooden floors, warm throws and deep window sills. Views soar over to the south side of the hills, the wood-burner is merry on a dull day (logs provided) and the living room is spacious. Gather in the kitchen for suppers or fire up the barbecue on the terrace; toast a marshmallow around the fire pit later on.
Sunny bedrooms have pure wool throws, thick mattresses and views over the garden to the heather-covered hills. You’ll wake up filled with joy just looking at them.
