As we fast approach the summer months, for many the thought of getting away is coming to the forefront of their minds.
For a number of years now, Newhall has had the pleasure welcoming guests to our cottages from many parts of the world, including China, Australia, America, Germany and even Edinburgh!
Set in lovely surroundings, our cottages offer comfortable and secure accommodation with delightful walks.
One such is the Newhall Bothy. But what’s a Bothy we hear you ask? A Bothy was the term for a single farm workers accommodation that usually comprised of only one room.
Staying true to its historical meaning, the Bothy is a very small, sweet, self-contained unit that accommodates one or two people. Perfect for a romantic getaway a mere 50 yards from the Walled Garden.
This cottage is part of a traditional farm steading established in the late 18th century, but is now converted to a high standard, offering modern living in a quaint building.
Although small, it’s very comfortable and cosy, using our biomass boiler for heating and hot water. It is fully equipped with all mod cons including free satellite TV and Wi-Fi. The intimate cottage comprises three rooms; a bedroom, bathroom with shower, and kitchen/dining/sitting room.
In addition, the Bothy is in close proximity to the Steading Cottage and has, on occasion, been used as an annexe to it that we find is helpful for slightly larger parties coming to stay with us.
But it’s not just the cottage itself that is incredibly desirable. Our location, only a short drive from Scotland’s capital, is also a big selling point, especially in August when the Edinburgh Fringe Festival is running.
Of course there’s a lot more to do in Edinburgh than just visit the Fringe; there’s plenty to see and do including visiting the castle, embarking on city tours, as well as plenty of shops and restaurants to keep you occupied.
A holiday at Newhall really can offer you everything; cosy, quaint accommodation in a fantastic location perfect for a quiet getaway, or a convenient, comfortable base as you explore the surrounding areas.
