Our holiday lodge was refurbished in August 2017 to make the most of its traditional features and give it a fresh, cosy and contemporary feel. This lodge is non-smoking throughout.
It has a fully equipped kitchen for self-catering with gas cooker, microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and washer-dryer. There is a 4-seat dining area in the lounge. Outside, overlooking the river, there is another 4-seat dining area on the deck, with a gas barbecue on the patio next to the lawn.
The lounge also has a comfortable seating area with a log-burning stove and flat screen TV with Freesat. With two large windows and patio doors, the lounge has superb views over the river. You can watch for the deer on the opposite bank and the squirrel at its feeder on the deck rail. The mirrors are positioned so that you can keep an eye out for visiting wildlife if you're dining or relaxing in front of the TV. An easel is provided if you feel inspired to draw, along with some books and traditional games.
Each of the two bedrooms has a standard double bed, hairdryer and radio alarm clock. The small bedroom has a 3-door wardrobe with hanging space, shelving and mirror. The larger bedroom has a built-in single wardrobe and a free-standing single wardrobe with mirror.

A short walk into the village you will find three very popular restaurants and bars. The Paper Mill is at the end of the road. Across the bridge is the Laird and Dog Inn and Luci's Italian restaurant and cocktail bar. Outside the Laird and Dog, you can catch the 31 and 140 buses.
The 31 takes you to the centre of Edinburgh and all its attractions. The N31 night service runs from the city centre until 1230 weeknights and 0310 Saturdays and Sundays. The route takes you to Waverly Station, Princes Street, Haymarket Station and Edinburgh Zoo. From Waverly Station you can travel across the world-famous Forth Bridge to Fife, or take the scenic Waverly Line to the Scottish Borders.
The 140 takes you to Loanhead for local shopping and on to Roslin, where you can visit Rosslyn Chapel, made famous by Dan Brown's book "The Da Vinci Code" and the Roslin Glen Country Park. If you are feeling energetic, there is a sign-posted walking route along the river North Esk between the Laird and Dog, Roslin, the Chapel and the Country Park.
Across the road from the Laird and Dog, you can take the 31 bus to Bonnyrigg for local shopping and other local bus services, or take the 140 to Musselburgh on the Firth of Forth coast.
Local activities include horse-riding, golf, walking, dry-slope skiing and swimming. If you're ready for a quiet time, stay at the park, relax in the lodge, sit out on the deck overlooking the river, go fishing or watch the wildlife.
