Mill Cottage, West Linton, Peeblesshire, Scottish Borders (Sleeps 1-5)

Mill Cottage is a cosy, comfortable and spacious semi-detached cottage, dating back to 1830, but recently completely renovated inside. Situated just outside of West Linton, it’s a superb base for exploring the beautiful Scottish Borders.

Downstairs there is the family kitchen area and a wet room next to the sunny twin bedroom. The whole ground floor area is wheelchair friendly and is tiled throughout to create a relaxing sense of space and light. There is a TV in the downstairs bedroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with integral fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, electric cooker with ceramic hob and a microwave.

Upstairs there is a cosy sitting room with a wood-burning stove for those who enjoy a real fire. You will love the view from the windows, looking out across the garden and smallholding to sheep fields and hills. There is a satellite TV and a DVD player. In the bookcase, you will find a wide range of reading material, with games and jigsaws. There is also lots of tourist information, with details of local walks and where to find fishing permits for further afield. The tiled bathroom has a bath and shower. There is a spacious bedroom with a double bed and a single bedroom. A hairdryer is provided. All rooms are tastefully furnished.

Damside lies half a mile north of the small village of Romanno Bridge and three miles from the picturesque and historic village of West Linton. Peebles and Penicuik are each 10 miles distant, with Edinburgh city centre a pleasant 30 minutes by car. It is also possible to catch a bus into Edinburgh from outside the cottage.

There are several restaurants and public houses in the area, the nearest being in West Linton and a good selection of supermarkets. The nearest store is in West Linton.

Romanno Bridge is ideally placed for visiting the attractions of Edinburgh and the Central Belt and for exploring the beautiful Borders countryside. There is easy access to the Edinburgh Bypass for visiting other areas in Scotland.

There are lots of local activities for all ages, golf and tennis in West Linton, a children's Activity Camp nearby which can be booked on a daily basis, lovely country walks (West Linton has twice hosted the Borders Walking Festival and Peebles held it in 2010), mountain biking at Glentress, skiing at Hillend, rock climbing at Ratho.
