The Hayloft offers self-catering  accommodation for four,specifically it is only ten miles from Edinburgh and yet also situated in a peaceful rural location.

This holiday flat sleeps four in a double bedroom with en-suite wash basin and toilet as well as a twin room. The bright airy living space is noteworthy for its incorporation of artworks by local artists. While most importantly maintaining the original stone walls and exposed timber beams.

The log burning stove provides warmth and comfort during a winter break. We provide a basket of seasoned logs because we want you to be able to light the fire as soon as you return from a winter walk in the Pentland hills.


Furthermore there is a family bathroom with full sized bath and over bath electric shower. This room is tastefully decorated in slate grey with blue and gold tiles. In addition there is a garden with patio, table, chairs and a BBQ. And equally relevant in Edinburgh, off-road parking.

Situated in Balerno, where the Water of Leith and its tributaries provided the power for the old mills, producing paper, flax and snuff, the Hayloft is surrounded by  the lush tranquillity of the Pentland Hills. While additionally we are close to Edinburgh, one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. The Hayloft  therefore seems like an ideal rural location for a self-catering family vacation or romantic short break for two.

Walk out the door and you’re in the Pentland Hills Regional Park. Also take a bus or train and be in Edinburgh city centre in under an hour.

Especially relevant is the surrounding peace, birdsong, fresh air and dark skies. In addition the ability to be at one with the seasons. Therefore helping you in a few days to escape from the madding crowds.
