Traprain Cottage is a charming country cottage located in a tranquil rural setting, perfect for exploring country, coast and city.
Step inside and you will find a cosy sitting room with a wood burning stove, ideal for hunkering down and enjoying those coorie in days or relaxing after a day outdoors. Also located on the ground floor is a beautifully appointed bedroom with a king size bed, a unique, well-equipped kitchen with all the essentials for holiday living and views to the back garden, a small WC and a back door leading out to the garden where there is a hot tub and seating area. Take a dip in the hot tub and immerse yourself in the peaceful surroundings and vast views across the rich rolling countryside.
A set of stairs leads up to the master bedroom with a super comfortable super-king bed and a luxurious bathroom with a double ended bath ideal for a seriously sumptuous soak, as well as a shower, WC and wash basin.
The private garden to the front of the cottage is the best spot for some morning sun with a coffee, a picnic lunch or an evening feast whilst watching the dramatic sky and colours shift over the hillside. There is a fire pit and log seating area in the woodland next to the cottage – ideal for marshmallow toasting and campfire singalongs. There is also plenty to spot in terms of wildlife, including hares, badgers, owls, rabbits, bats and myriad birdlife.
