“Our perfect home away from home.”
Reviewed May 10, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

This was our second family stay at Wintonhill Farmhouse. Travelling all the way from Australia, it was just as warm and comforting as our experience 5 years earlier. It looks a little older (as expected), but feels just the same.

The staff at Winton Estate are attentive, with excellent communication - Janis most definitely went the extra mile to make sure our Christmas and Hogmanay were both memorable.

My only complaint is that there is now a television on the wall in the front sitting room, which detracted from all the lovely time spent sitting by the fire. But if your only complaint is a tv the works, then it's a pretty great place to be.

Do yourself a favour, and spend some time on this beautiful Scottish estate.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Took a party of 16 here for a stag trip. House was fantastic and all of the guests were impressed . Fitted all in bedrooms well with 2 x z-beds which had all been set up prior to arrival. Everything was clean and tidy and instructions available if needed help with anything. Views were amazing.

Organisation and staff were brilliant and helpful. Did the shooting during the stay which was also fantastic the staff were very helpful to those who hadn't shot before and every single person enjoyed this. Jo's kitchen came in and did a Sunday roast at the house which also everyone enjoyed. Had wi-fi onsite too.

Thank you for a memorable experience!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed May 3, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed here as part of the Vaughan party! My folks booked this for a large group of us to stay in prior to a family wedding in Edinburgh.
The house is excellent, so much space for everyone and the kids that were with us had ample room to run around in. All of the bedrooms/bathrooms were huge and have plenty of storage space.
The family style kitchen was great and we thoroughly enjoyed using the large wooden table, it was perfect for us all to be able to share our meals around. We were also luckily enough to enjoy some excellent weather so had the chance to roll out the BBQ....all equipment and lighting fluids were supplied as well for us.
The surrounding grounds are huge and well maintained. A large walled secret garden at the back of the house was brilliant for practicing some golf or just kicking a ball against a wall! I went for a run on a couple of mornings and found that there was a large wooded area further up the main driveway which then led to some public footpaths.
Location wise it was perfect, far enough out of the city to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside but only a short 20minute drive to the outskirts of Edinburgh. Surrounding villages were very convenient for grabbing some extra milk and bits if/when required.
Overall an excellent stay and highly recommended.

“Excellent Overnight Stay”
Reviewed October 6, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Overnight stay here with 5 other friends.
Extremely well appointed accommodation with all items/ facilities provided that we required. Careful thought and attention to detail had obviously been put in.
Bedrooms (and throughout) very clean and comfortable. Great night's sleep.
Good sized living room (with real fire), dining room and dining kitchen. More than ample for our group and could have accommodated many more with little difficulty.
Would thoroughly recommend for warm welcome, great accommodation and lots to do locally.

“Lovely house for residential meeting, set in peaceful location”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Enjoyed a one night stay in this great, characterful property, with colleagues from all over. The detached farmhouse is set in its own grounds with ample parking and no neighbours so privacy is assured. I was in the Winton View bedroom with wide open vistas across the estate. The lounge is very comfortable and spacious, and the meal laid on in the grand dining room was absolutely delicious, as was the wine. I would certainly come back.

“Can we have our board meeting here again please?”
Reviewed September 22, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed here overnight prior to an 'away-day' board meeting.The house is full of character and my room was very comfortable. Had an excellent evening meal in the large dinning room followed by some useful informal discussion in front of a open log fire in very relaxing surroundings. It was a great prequal to the formal board session in Winton cottage the following day. A great experience all round.
