Traprain Cottage

A cosy, self-catering, country cottage in East Lothian. The location is on a farm at the foot of the Lammermuir Hills with lovely open views and great nearby walks along the picturesque beaches, foothill paths & tracks. It’s also a great area for cycling, the surrounding roads were used by Iron Man Triathlon in 2017 and 2018 as part of the cycling route!

The cottage offers a truly relaxing stay in the quiet of the countryside near lovely traditional local villages and towns with Edinburgh only a 40 minute drive.

Looking for a romantic break this is the perfect place to  soak up the tranquility and quiet of rural life, to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of city life and spend time together.

You will be staying in luxury self-catering accommodation where you can soak in the bath, relax by the wood burning stove, listen to the birdsong in the gardens and feel invigorated with a couple of nights of food, fun and frolic under the stars in our very special secluded corner.

Nearest pub 1 mile, nearest supermarket 3 miles.
