Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Janet

I just wanted to let you know we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Annexe. I have to say it was one of the best holiday homes we have stayed in over the years and by far the best equipped. It more than met our expectations and we would have loved to have stayed longer. The location was lovely and peaceful and yet had shops, restaurants and a bus stop nearby.



Thank you for renting out The Annexe, hopefully we may return at some point. Thanks too for the strawberries.



Regards

Great house in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

The house is in an excellent location, close enough to enjoy Edinburgh, which was very busy with the Fringe Festival and the usual tourists and far enough to get some peace and quiet after a hectic day. The house is excellent with all the facilities you need, it is clean and looked after with lovely decor (as soon as we put our bags down when we got there our daughter asked if we could come back). It is very handy for the local golf courses, which there are many with Melville Driving Range & Broomieknowe Golf Course, which is very friendly and in good nick a 3 minute drive away. There are loads of places to eat in or near Lasswade if you don't want to go too far, did not have a compliant in all the places we ate, again excellent quality and very friendly places to go. Janet, the owner welcomed us on arrival and was on hand if we needed anything, we really felt comfortable being there and will be returning hopefully next year. The transport links into Edinburgh are excellent, park and ride is available at nearby train stations where you can park your car for free, the highlight of our trip was the visits to Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Yacht Brittania in nearby Leith, both are brilliant. Would highly recommend the property and have already passed on the property/owner details to friends and family. Fantastic place to stay and a great city to visit.

Luxury, comfort and a warm welcome!

  • 5 of 5

It was an absolute joy to stay at this home as everything was provided and the owners made us feel very welcome. The property is secure, the interior of the home is spacious, clean, family friendly and beautifully decorated. The location is private and within an easy drive to Edinburgh and coastal villages. Janet and David were wonderful hosts - we will recommend to others.

The Annex

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment on a picture perfect property! Everything about it was lovely!

The location was great; extremely close to bus into Edinburgh and an easily walkable distance into the pretty town. Perfect for our Lanark excursions. The apartment itself: wonderfully decorated, extremely clean and comfortable. It was so great to meet Janet and her husband. I would give the Annex more stars if I could!

A HIDDEN GEM

  • 5 of 5

The Annex is a superb property which is attached to the owners home. This is not a problem at all as the living accommodation is on the first floor therefore giving it a very private feel. The location is lovely it is so peaceful, quiet and very relaxing. We have been staying in holiday cottages for the last 15 years and the Annex is our favourite. Everything

works very well the WIFI is excellent and the walk-in shower in the en-suite master bedroom is always lovely and hot, bliss !!

The owner Janet is a lovely lady and provided all the added extras that we take for granted at home but don't usually find

in rental accommodation. Nothing was too much trouble and she even provided fresh flowers and a welcome basket

which was very much appreciated. It is these little touches that make so much difference.

We left our car at the Annex and had a slow stroll round to the bus stop an easy 10 min walk at a slow pace and got the bus in to Edinburgh.

They run approx every 10 mins and at a cost of £1.50 each way was a bargain and so much easier than taking the car.

There is a Tesco supermarket 2 miles away so again easy to get to.

Our long Easter weekend went by all too quickly. We have now found a hidden gem that I am know we will be coming

back to again and again. 😃

Excellent Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation is in a peaceful location. It is immaculately clean and very well equipped. Both of the bedrooms are lovely, the upstairs bedroom is spacious and has an ensuite bathroom. The property is furnished to a very high standard and it had everything we needed. It was absolutely perfect for us and we highly recommend it to anyone visiting Edinburgh. The owner Janet made us feel welcome and she was very helpful. We are looking forward to going back again.
