Property code: 53898

Perfect for hikers and walkers, those with four legs too, this charming, spacious period cottage, is nestled in a peaceful location in the heart of a beautiful 18-hole golf course. Enjoy hours of stick-chasing fun on the beach, tongue-lolling hikes in the hills or a touch of history and culture in Scotland’s capital city, before returning to a warm welcome for an evening of rest and relaxation.

Ideal for couples and small families alike, make sure your furry friend comes along as he is welcome too. Tasteful furnishings and subtle tones make this a cosy home from home. Trot through the front garden and step in to the light and bright open-plan living space, where your pup can have a snooze on his favourite blanket as you make a hot chocolate. Settle on the sofa with your feet up, enjoying the lovely garden views, and on warm evenings, dine alfresco with a glass of wine under the stars. For those days when cooking seems like too big a task, potter to the club house restaurant just a short stroll away. In the morning, let your happy hound scamper amongst the shrubbery whilst you sip a coffee welcoming in a new day.

Located in the pretty village of Lasswade, the wonderful city of Edinburgh and all its delights is but 6 miles away. Enjoy the beautiful golf course’s parkland with a stroll from your doorstep. Walkers will love the fantastic Pentland hills (8 miles), with Allermuir Hill providing superb views of the capital whilst there is wonderful ridge-walking along Carnethy Hill, Scald Law and the Kips. A water-loving dog will delight in a walk along the beach at Musselburgh (9.5 miles), and further afield you can all discover the golden sands at Gullane Beach (19 miles) and Yellowcraig Beach (22.4 miles).

We spent Christmas and NY in Blue Spruce. We had a fantastic time in a beautiful location. It's a 10 walk to the number 31 bus which takes you to Edinburgh, they run all day and well into the night.

Overall a very nice and generally clean cottage, a few minor issues with some of the equipment but I'm sure these will be fixed in time the interior is dated but homely, The cottage was nice and warm and we had a warmer welcome from the hosts who made us feel at home. the location was great and we went into the city most days but the secluded naturRead moree of the cottage meant winding down at night was very easy. Parking was very convenient and made unpacking and packing a breeze. We would stay again. Hide

The cottage was perfect; spacious, clean and tidy. It was fully stocked with everything you could need, as well as warm and cosy. The whole place was perfect. I can't praise it enough.

A great location near to Edinburgh, we used the train some days to get into the city which was very convenient. Supermarket and pubs/restaurants also not far to drive to. The cottage had everything we needed but did have a bit of a damp, musty smell. We kept the windows open to help with this as my husband suffers with asthma.

A cute country cottage in an idyllic location even if you dont play golf. If you have a dog take a tie-out line as the greens are too tempting and the garden is not secure.
