We have nothing but warm words for Goose Cottage. Very clean and tidy when we arrived. Welcome basket of biscuits and jams. All the facilities you need for a comfortable stay. Close to Bathgate and its station and restaurants and other amenities. Warm welcome from Lisa. We had a fabulous time and returned from our holiday feeling that we had experienced the best of Scottish hospitality. Warmly recommend this as a place to stay.

“SUPERB IN EVERY WAY!”

I have had the pleasure of staying in Goose Cottage for a week with my family and it was a delight from beginning to end. This wonderful cottage is perfectly situated by the main roads leading to central and most sought for areas in Scotland. The cottage itself is on a farm in a beautiful spot and Lisa is a hostess full of kindness. It was wonderful to arrive at a spotless 'home away from home' greeted by a basket of delicious treats. Everything one can think of to make his holiday a delight can be found at this cottage. It is spacious, light, with a lovely garden and a fantastic view of the fields. I could not recommend it more! I look forward to future opportunities to visit Scotland and there is no question as to the preferred accommodation. Goose Cottage is the place to be! 5 Stars!!

“Thoroughly recommended”
Reviewed June 7, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Gem of a cottage, beautifully furnished, all needs anticipated (clothes pegs to iPod adaptor). Blissfully secluded but easy to find. Good rail and road links to the cities. Delightful town of Linlithgow close by with excellent eateries. Thoroughly recommended.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed November 29, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

This cottage is a real home from home. I was travelling on business and the cottage was perfect to come home and relax in after a long day at work.
The kitchen is fully equiped and the log burner adds a special touch.
My wife came to visit for a few days and did not want to go home!
Also the position is perfect, you have access to some fabulous sites and only a short drive from Edinburgh.
Definitely worth staying here.

Thank you for taking the time to write the review. I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday at the cottage, yes the woodburner is very popular ! We are fortunate that the surroundings are so peaceful at the steading. I hope that you will consider staying at Goose Cottage in the future.

“Relaxing haven.”
Reviewed August 10, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Stayed here recently for a week and used as a base for the Fringe Festival. We were always so glad to get back to the peace and quiet of Goose Cottage after the hustle and bustle of the city.The cottage itself was very clean and had everything you needed.The homebaked scones on arrival and welcome pack were most welcome! The beds and pillows were so comfy too. The owner Lisa was on hand if we had had any probs but didn't need to trouble her. All in all I would highly recommend it .Thank you very much!
