Crauchie Farmhouse, East Linton, East Lothian
A picture-book Georgian farmhouse hidden up a winding lane in the midst of fields and woods yet only minutes from the pubs, shops and sights of East Linton, a village beloved by artists for centuries. All the peace and quiet of the countryside with the culture and beauty of Edinburgh only 40 minutes drive away – or take the train or bus to avoid city parking nightmares.
Ground Floor: 1 double room with a king-size bed.
The bathroom is ensuite with bath, cabinet power-shower, WC and hand-basin.
There are views over the garden, a TV with DVD player and a tea and coffee tray.
First floor: 1 room with twin beds, which can ‘zip and link’ to become a large double.
The private bathroom is right next door (one step away) and has a bath with hand shower, WC and hand basin.
This room has views over the fields and hills, TV with extra freeview channels and a tea and coffee tray.
All rooms have wireless internet access.
Breakfast: This is served in the pretty dining room, overlooking the hills and fields.
Joanna offers home-prepared fruit salads and compôtes, cereals and fruit juice and her own special blend of porridge, followed by a freshly-cooked Scottish breakfast of egg, bacon, sausage, black pudding, tomato, mushroom and fried potato, or the combination of your choice. Tea, coffee or chocolate accompanied by hot toast and marmalade or jam complete the meal.
The freshest of eggs come from the local farm shop, where the hens scratch in outside runs, the bacon and sausages are the village butcher’s own make and the award-winning black pudding is from Stornoway – not local but very much worth the trip!
Vegetarian and other special diets can be catered for and packed lunches provided with adequate notice.
