Overview

Scottish Borders Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

3 lrg bedrooms, upstairs study/bed, 2 bath. Sleeps up to 8

SUMMARY: This lovely stone-built farmhouse dates from the 19th Century and forms part of a working farm, built on the site of a Roman encampment.

Kirkhouse Farmhouse offers the space of a large house [c 1700 sq ft] with the charm of a country cottage, set in a beautiful natural environment.

The location is ideal for visiting many historic and tourist attractions, the Boarders and as far as Perth and St. Andrews all within a day trip's drive.

MORE DETAIL: The two storey, fully centrally heated property has large rooms providing comfortable, spacious accommodation. The big farmhouse kitchen is well equipped for large family dinners and the dining area provides a more formal setting. The lounge has a log burning stove for extra cosiness in the evenings and three sofas for relaxing. Satellite TV is included.

The charming, good sized rooms easily accommodate 6 adults (or 8, including children in the up-stairs study area) and there is a family bathroom up-stairs and a shower-room/toilet downstairs. (Discounts are available for couples or small groups, out of peak season)

Kirkhouse Farmhouse is surrounded by beautiful Scottish countryside only 30 miles from Edinburgh on the edge of the hamlet of Dolphinton - between West Linton, one of the most beautiful villages in Scotland - and Biggar, a small market town full of history and character. A large private garden leads directly onto the estate, which offers 300 acres of mixed woodland, heather hillside, wildlife habitat, picturesque streams and farmland grazing - a miniature of the Scottish Borders landscape.

The location is ideal for visiting central Scotland and guests day-trip to the Borders, the Dumfries coast, Glasgow, Edinburgh and up to Stirling, Perth and St Andrews.

Peace & quiet: Whilst we are a working farm, we primarily produce sheep, so its a quiet environment to relax and un-wind from the stresses of work and normal life.

Carbon Offsetting: White Hill Estate contains a wide variety of woodland and we are happy to discuss dedicated tree planting to offset the impact of our guests' travel.

Horse Accommodation: White Hill is home to several horses, and those wishing to bring their own horse with them to enjoy quality hacking with spectacular views are very welcome. 20 x 40 m outdoor, all weather arena. Please contact us to discuss grazing and loose box arrangements.

Falconry: Rhuallan Raptors can provide your personal bird of prey display on Kirkhouse Farm. www.rhuallanraptors.com/ For those with their own hawk or falcon, the estate provides a rich and varied hunting landscape. Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.

About Deborah Benson

We are both business people and have also become farmers. We keep and train horses and we love living in such a wonderful rural setting, but with very easy access to the city for work and getting a 'cultural fix' every now and then.

Deborah Benson purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why Deborah Benson chose Scottish Borders

We first visited this farm on one of the worst winter's days in ages. We walked up the hill in a strong wind and horizontal sleet - we came back down the hill totally exhilarated and in awe of the beautiful setting. Since we fell in love with the place in the worst of weathers, we realized that it would be amazing in good weather and it is.

There is something special about White Hill. Guests call it 'magical'. Being here is relaxing, calming and fun. Many of our guests come back again and again and think of it as their special retreat to unwind from busy lives.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We do not allow pesticide on our land, so there is abundant wild-life. Its an ideal location for nature lovers, ecologists and for children to explore and learn about the natural world.
