A little bubble of loveliness surrounded by the dramatic beauty of the Pentland Hills on the edge of the brilliant cultural city of Edinburgh.
Sure to tempt both couples and families into muddy boots and fresh country air
Dating back to the 18th Century, the aptly named Sheep Cote sits on a working sheep farm and enjoys dramatic far-reaching views across rolling farmland and vast heather covered hillsides. Its characterful stone built exterior opens into a fresh contemporary country interior – delightfully understated yet casually stylish with a real sense of home.
The arrangement of the cottage is a multi-level aspect following the contours of the original building, with the main living space on the ground floor, the kitchen and family bathroom on the first floor, and two bedrooms on the upper first floor.
Opening up into a fresh, airy sitting room, this cottage has a relaxed Scandi vibe with deep squishy sofas and a gentle colour palette, all warmed by wooden floorboards and soft natural textures. Add the warming glow of the wood burner and you can enjoy some seriously toasty relaxation here after a day outdoors. There is also a day bed which can offer additional sleeping provision, or simply for those days when settling down with a good book and a slice of cake seems like a perfect plan.
A set of stairs leads to the kitchen which is well equipped with all the essentials for holiday living, including a dining space for four guests. Doors lead out onto a raised shingle patio area with picnic table which is a perfect spot for taking in the morning sunrise with a rich coffee or an evening barbecue watching the dramatic colours shift over the heather-clad hillside.
This leads into a family bathroom with bath and waterfall shower, extending upwards into the upper level with twin bedroom and double bedroom with en-suite shower room, each continuing the tranquil theme with crisp linens, warm throws and soft chalky paint finishes.
