We stayed at Smarhus while our house was being renovated. It' was the perfect accommodation for us as a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 small children). The cottage itself is very spacious and is well equipped for a very comfortable stay. The setting is very peaceful and the views are stunning.

The cottage had Sky TV, WiFi,...

It is set in beautiful countryside (photos don't do it justice) so ideal for a quiet holiday. It is close to all amenities for self catering and great for exploring West Lothian, Linlithgow, the Falkirk Wheel, the Kelpies etc.,...

The cottage was spotless. Great space to relax and entertain. The owners were always a phone call away. Such a great relaxing location with easy access to all of the central belt. Everything was provided. Great way to spend a holiday in Scotland.
