A cosy stone-built cottage for two oozing character and charm set in the extremely pretty conservation village of West Linton in the Scottish Borders. Sitting in the captivating landscape of the Pentland Hills, just 16 miles from Edinburgh, this petit but charismatic property will appeal to outdoor types and couples seeking a peaceful getaway in an idyllic location.
A palette of calming neutrals and contemporary finishes contrast with rich natural tweeds in heathery hues to create a wonderfully inviting living space which allows the character of the cottage to shine through. The original fireplace and woodburner is a strong focal point in the sitting room and is an inviting spot for relaxation, dining or for toasty evenings in.
In addition to the sitting room, there is a tiny but perfectly formed kitchen; a sleek bathroom with contemporary finishes and upstairs the charming double bedroom with its combed ceiling and rich feature wall is used to striking effect to create a warm country feel.
