  • “We had a lovely stay!”

    The cottage was very clean, the shower was good and beds comfortable. There was plenty of room for myself, my husband and our toddler but may have been a squeeze if we had used the third bedroom. Train line behind the cottage did not cause any issues as could hardly hear this. The cottage is situated on a lovely private estate which you can walk around.

    The cottage was very clean, the shower was good and beds comfortable. There was plenty of room for myself, my husband and our toddler but may have been a squeeze if we had used the third bedroom. Train line behind the cottage did not cause any issues as could hardly hear this. The cottage is situated on a lovely private estate which you can walk around. The location was rural but only 10 minutes drive away in Livingston there were numerous shopping centres / supermarkets / food outlets where you could find everything you need. Very easy to get into Edinburgh, we parked for free at Livingston South train station and it only took 20 minutes on the train for a low cost. We spent a day at five sisters zoo just 5 minutes down the road which was lovely and despite being smaller than Edinburgh zoo, had plenty of big animals and also a soft play next door. Would definitely recommend this cottage if you want a comfortable stay in a quite area with easy access to amenities and a good base to explore the central belt of Scotland!

The property

An idyllic, detached property resting within the superb grounds of the Harburn Estate, in the heart of West Lothian.

Gate Lodge is within striking distance of the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow which can both be reached easily via public transport, the majestic Pentland Hills Regional Park and the Five Sister’s Zoo, offering an opportunity for an action-packed adventure or a relaxing week-long getaway.

Be welcomed into this elegantly-styled interior which houses everything you could possibly need during a holiday within the countryside setting.

It comes with three well-presented bedrooms, comprising a king-size with an en-suite, a twin bedroom with an en-suite and a double bedroom.

Each bedroom boasts a contemporary design, ample storage and views of the surrounding grounds to wake up to each morning.

Look forward to spending your wind down time within the quaint, open-plan living room where the whole family can gather to enjoy a sociable evening.

The designated chef of the group will be delighted with the well-equipped kitchen offering everything you could possibly need to whip up a delicious evening meal.

Joining the kitchen is a formal dining area and an inviting sitting area with a Smart TV and a woodburning stove.

To the outside you will find a private garden area, where your canine companion is welcome to roam or you can explore the 1000 acres of landscaped gardens of the impressive estate.

If you can tear yourself away from this delightful accommodation, venture into the town of West Calder, where you will find a selection of pubs, restaurants and shops to enjoy.

To keep you busy whilst staying at Gate Lodge, enjoy a summer’s day at the superb Five Sisters Zoo which is home to over 196 species of mammals, birds and reptiles, and is certain to delight any younger guests.
