The cottage was the perfect retreat from the Edinburgh Hogmanay celebrations. Ideal for us. Thanks for all your kindness and hospitality.
My husband, daughter and myself stayed at Charles and Araminta's annexe for a weekend. What a fantastic place to stay, beautiful countryside and a homely house to stay in. Charles and Araminta only made our stay even better with their hospitality. Our daughter had a memorable time by being able to ride Araminta's ponies.
We would definitely recommend this place, nothing to fault. Looking forward to returning to it.
Myself and partner and our dog have just stayed here for 3 nights, what a fantasctic time we had, it will always stay in our hearts as during our stay my partner proposed to me. Our hosts Charles and Araminta were wonderful and helped us celebrate our special occassion and made a day which we will never forget. Would definately recommend this annexe to everyone, and we will be staying there again in the future.
We stayed in Araminta's and Charles' annex for 8 days in August and it was amazing! The cottage is properly equipped with everything you could ask for. Additionally, the lovely garden surrounding the annex really gave the impression of full-relax-holidays. The location is perfectly suited to discover the lower part of Scotland and very well connected to Edinburgh.
Araminta and Charles are very lovely people and great hosts that do not hesitate to give you a helping hand. They made us feel like at home by welcoming us warmly with self-baked bread and all the tiny things for the everyday-life. They shared their fascinating stories with us, which made this holiday unforgettable.
Thank you again for everything, Rosa & Thomas
The cottage at the Grange is a great place to spend a few weeks in Scotland! We stayed 4 weeks and could have stayed more had circumstance permitted. Araminta and Charles are the best, giving of their time and energy to ensure a comfortable stay. The cottage itself is very spacious and well equipped, including a wonderful Rayburn stove. The chickens, ducks, goose, and horses add to the ambience that is the Grange property! The walks in the hills are not to be missed, including the Covenanter's Grave, just a few miles from the cottage.
Thank you Araminta for the warm bread, fresh eggs and your winning smile! Thank you Charles for your knowledge of the area, and your gift of story telling! Thank you both for a wonderful stay.
