Bramble Cottage

Self Catering

Bramble Cottage, Fountainhall, Near Pencaitland, Edinburgh And Lothians, EH34 5EY

    Bramble Cottage is surrounded by fields and woodlands. It is the very essence of beautiful East Lothian Countryside. The only sounds are birdsong, clip-clopping of horses’ hooves and pheasants calling out to friends!

    Bramble Cottage is a romantic, secluded luxury detached cottage for couples looking for privacy in a beautifully, well equipped 5* ‘Visit Scotland’ graded property which is located on a private farming estate. It is the perfect location if looking for an exclusive bolthole where you won't be disturbed. It is situated adjacent to the owner’s house at the end of a long private single-track road – CAR ESSENTIAL.

    Originally built in the early 1800's as farm worker accommodation, Bramble Cottage has recently been extensively upgraded to cater for every modern-day need, whilst still retaining its full character on the outside, with random-rubble stonework construction and pantile roof - which remains part of East Lothian's historical heritage.

    Ideally located, this gorgeous cottage is also within easy reach of Edinburgh via rail, taking you straight in to the heart of the city or by road. - so you can have the best of the stunning countryside and explore the capital city too!

    Road Directions

    A note for Sat-Nav users: Tom Tom’s etc. will send you via the road to Humbie and on to ‘House of Muir’. This leads to a dirt track. Please ensure you follow directions below via Pencaitland Village only – thank you.

    1. EITHER: From A1 (both South & North), take the slip road sign-posted Macmerry, Pencaitland and Glenkinchie Distillery. Following directions to Pencaitland, pass through Boggs Holdings and at the “T” Junction, turn left, then right at the staggered cross-roads. Pass through traffic lights and follow from STEP 3 below.
    2. OR: From A68, follow sign-post to Haddington (A6093).
    3. Upon arrival in Pencaitland, turn into the road signposted for Glenkinchie & Lempockwells, which is directly opposite the SPAR shop (doubles up as a garage [GULF] for petrol).
    4. Take the THIRD ON THE RIGHT (Huntlaw Road). You will know it is the correct road, as you will see an old railway bridge about 400 metres above in front of you.
    5. Carry on up this road, which now becomes single track immediately after the bridge (you will see Glenkinchie malting towers on your right hand side).
    6. At the top of the rise, where the “main” road turns 90 degrees left, there is a Private Road straight in front with signs noting “No Public Road for Vehicles” and “Fountainhall Only”.  CONTINUE UP THIS SINGLE TRACK ROAD - at a maximum speed of 20mph (caution as road continuously used by horses).
    7. There are FOUR SPEED BUMPS on this road. Continue over them all.
    8. The road will eventually split in to 3 – take middle road which will take you down a small sloping road.
    9. At the bottom, bear left. Bramble Cottage is at the end of this road (50m) on your right-hand side – just beyond the main house.
