The vibrant city of Edinburgh is worth a visit anytime of year. After a busy day exploring Edinburgh's historic streets return "home" to cosy Kyle cottage on Thornton Farm, open a bottle of wine and put your feet up in front of a log burning stove.
Our farm cottage is fully equipped for the perfect town and country holiday, just 20 minutes drive south of Edinburgh city centre, situated on our working farm. We are surrounded by gentle countryside, ancient Sequoia trees and paddocks where horses graze and roe deer roam. The cottage has 2 bedrooms comprising one kingsize double room and one twin bedded room. The lounge/dining/kitchen area is fully equipped with electric oven, ceramic hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher , washing machine and tumble dryer. Comfy seating with TV integral DVD player, freeview and Wifi. Please note that there is no bath, it is a large walk-in wet room consisting of shower wash hand basin and toilet also suitable for wheelchair access.
There is ample car parking right at the door and a patio area with table and chairs. All linen, towels, oil for central heating and logs for log-burning Squirrel stove is included.
It is preferable that you have a car, as we are a 10 minute walk on farm roads (with no street lights) to the village and nearest bus to Edinburgh. Having said that, the bus service is good and regular, so not essential to have a car. We also have a local, friendly taxi driver in the village.
Aswell as self catering cottages we have 2 bedrooms in the farmhouse for let on a B&B basis, so do ask if you'd prefer a short break.
The Farm is a working farm, so you can see sheep, cattle and plenty of horses, as we have a livery yard. We can also offer horse B&B!
There are some excellant pubs and restaurants all within 10 minutes drive of the farm and of course the famous Rosslyn Chapel of Da Vinci Code fame is just across Roslin glen, a lovely 40 minute walk or 10 minute drive.
Whitehill Golf Course is a pretty 9 hole course just outside your cottage. Two more challenging 18 holes courses are less than 10 minutes drive (website hidden) Andrews is an easy 1hour 40mins drive so treat yourself to a game there!
The many fine historic castles and houses of the borders are an easy drive, as is the road north to the Highlands and islands.
The Pentland Hills for great walks and wildlife are on our doorstep.
We love living here and really enjoy sharing our part of Bonny Scotland

I have lived in Scotland near Edinburgh for 35 years having stayed after my first trip from South Africa when I was 19. Duncan and I live in the farmhouse where he was born, his grandfather came to Thornton as a tenant farmer in 1925.
We farm mainly arable, have 800 sheep (lambing in May) and fatten cattle. Also have 60 horses at livery here, so can offer horse B&B too!
Aswell as the B&B in the farmhouse we have 3 holiday cottages available for self catering.
