Country Cottages

Tucked away in a beautiful rural, secluded location at the foot of the Lammermuir Hills, our luxury 4-star cottages are the perfect base for exploring the countryside.  The cottages boast breath-taking views, private gardens, hot tubs (Traprain & Lammer Cottages), wood burning stoves and a fire pit in the nearby woodland.

We offer a range of outdoor activities such as wild swimming, guided hill walks, foraging and paddle board yoga at the Danskine Loch on the farm.  We also recommend cloud watching, getting up for the sunrise, going for a nature walk at night, cooking on a camp fire and star gazing in the open countryside on your doorstep.

Carfrae Farm is located at the foot of the beautiful Lammermuir Hills, only a 40. minute drive from Edinburgh and a short drive to East Lothian’s famous beaches and coastal towns North Berwick, Gullane and Dunbar, as well as the market town of Haddington and beautiful unique villages Gifford, Garvald, Stenton and East Linton.  Check out our blog for ideas on things to do and places to visit.

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.
