Wow! We have just returned from 2 weeks in beautiful Scotland, made even better by the accommodation at Swanston! I really do have to rate this property as excellent as everything we could have needed was provided! Dishwasher, washing machine, all pots/pans/plates/glasses/cutlery/utensils etc etc! A hoover and ironing board etc was also there should we need it, although it is... More

We spent a week in Cottage 4, the Coachouse. This was roomy and comfortable with three bedrooms and a bed settee (cottage sleeps 8). Well equipped, clean, with attractive modern yet sympathetic decor, including a feature spiral staircase going up to a bedroom in the eaves. Free wi fi. Fantastic setting just beyond the outskirts of Edinburgh on the edge... More

the cottages are part of golf complex at Swanston golf course. The owners are very personable and will go out of their way to ensure all is ok for you. The admin lady Joanna is excellent and personally makes you very welcome. 10% off golf bistro meals and reductions on golf rounds.

We have now stayed at Swanston Holiday Cottages twice this year and have already booked to stay again! We stayed in Cottage 7 in February - perfect for two adults and dog. Scenery was spectacular. Pentlands covered in snow. We asked to stay on another week as we were enjoying it so much. In May we had cottage 4 which... More

The dogs were welcomed here and surrounded by wonderful walks it was just perfect. We were greeted and shown around but left in peace there after. Our cottages (4 & 5) had secure gardens and the roomy cottages were very well kitted out with all mod cons to a high standard. The beds, bedding and towells were all crisp white... More

This is the second time my husband & I have stayed at Swanston Cottages. The first was in cottage 7 in October 2011 & most recently in cottage 6 in December 2012 - January 2103. We were visiting our daughter & her family who live close by. Both stays were very pleasant as both cottages were clean, comfortable & cosy... More

We stayed there at cottage nr 7 the last week of August while our house was being renovated. Although the price per week is quite substantial, we regretted not enquiring for a longer stay (we reckon we could have stayed a whole month there). There is ample space to store everything you need (in our case, toddler, baby stuff and... More

We stayed in cottage 4 over the August bank holiday weekend. We requested a travel cot which I assumed would be put up for our arrival however we had to rummage in a cupboard. No linen was provided for the cot, luckily I had taken a sheet just in case. The cot was pretty disgusting. The fabric edge was stained,... More

We stayed at Swanston for probably the eighth time and as usual really enjoyed the warm cozy cottage which was very clean and comfortable. Over the years we have stayed during most seasons and all are lovely here as there are good walks in one direction and the city in the other. We usually combine business and pleasure on trips...

I also stayed in cottage number 8 in July 2011 with my son and had a totally different experience from the previous post. The cottage was clean, especially the kitchen. I loved that they gave you a little bag with new cleaning cloths, sponges, dishwasher tablets etc. The free internet was also a bonus. I also thought that the cottage... More
