  • “This is a wonderful property, situated on the edge of a small hamlet on a quiet road.”

    Although this property sleeps four, there were only two of us, but I can confirm it's certainly suitable for 4. Kitchen was very well equipped with more than enough cuttlery, plates, pans & utensils. The only thing it lacked was a dishwasher, but that's no hardship, although the fridge/freezer being in the utility room next to the kitchen did mean there was a lot of moving between the two. Being on one level, with a walk in shower it's ideal for people with limited mobility, however there are a ...

    Although this property sleeps four, there were only two of us, but I can confirm it's certainly suitable for 4. Kitchen was very well equipped with more than enough cuttlery, plates, pans & utensils. The only thing it lacked was a dishwasher, but that's no hardship, although the fridge/freezer being in the utility room next to the kitchen did mean there was a lot of moving between the two. Being on one level, with a walk in shower it's ideal for people with limited mobility, however there are a couple of steps into the premises. The bedrooms were spacious with plenty of storage and the beds were extremely comforatable, with feather pillows and quilt. The bathroom is spacious and tiled throughout. The only negative is there are no grab rails, so I had to help my wife in and out of the shower, due to her limited mobility. The living room/dining room is big, so there's plenty of room to allow you to make yourself at home. The patio doors lead out into a raised area with a table and chairs, overlooking the rest of the garden (with barbecue and further tables & chairs. The garden overlooks a deep wooded valley and you can just make out the stream at the bottom. Location wise, it's within around an hour of both Glasgow & Edinburgh and there are a number of train stations nearby giving you good access to both, if you don't want to drive into the cities. Nearest town is Lanark, with local shopping and supermarkets, although there are a couple of smaller shops in the nearby town of Forth.

The property

Forth 1 mile.

Lovely detached holiday home on a quiet road opening to the countryside surrounding the village of Forth, near Lanark in central Scotland.

Fully refurbished and offering quality accommodation, this cottage is a great place for couples or families to use as a base while exploring this part of the country.

All ground floor, with three steps up to the front door and steps down from the metal balcony in the rear garden, this holiday home offers flexible accommodation for up to four people.

There is a super king-size double bedroom and a second room that has twin bed, (no zip/link).

The kitchen has a dining table while the spacious sitting room also has a dining area as well as views across the garden to the trees as the ground slopes down to the Mousewater Burn.

The sliding doors open onto a metal balcony which leads down to a garden and patio area.

Walk or cycle from your front door and explore the former Wilsontown Ironworks site, now converted into attractive woodlands with a variety of trails and guided walks to the settlement where many workers used to live and work the mines.

There are other cycle trails in nearby Fauldhouse and the famous Glentress cycle trails are less than an hour away.

Visit the World Heritage Site of the former 18th century cotton mill at New Lanark and discover why Robert Owen is renowned as a social reformer by developing social and welfare programmes and transforming the lives of the workers living in the planned village alongside the mill.

Why not spend a day in Glasgow or Edinburgh or tour the beautiful Borders only a short car journey away through stunning scenery?

A lovely holiday home with many attractions within easy reach, whatever the season.

About the location

FORTH

Lanark 8 miles; Glasgow 25 miles; Peebles 26 miles; Edinburgh 30 miles.

The village of Forth lies at 1000 feet above sea level and is near the bustling market town of Lanark in South Lanarkshire. The village has a large sports centre, Post Office and grocery shops, a couple of pubs offering food as well as takeaways. Golfers will be in their element as there are a number of courses available within a twenty minute drive including Carnwath, Carluke, Fauldhouse, Lanark, Shotts and West Calder. Fishing enthusiast can visit New Mills Trout Fishing Park where any members of your group who aren’t familiar with the sport can take lessons. If you fancy a day out shopping then the McArthur Glen designer outlet at Livingston is a must. This really is an ideal base and you are only a twenty minute drive from railway stations which will open up a multitude of options. The village has good access to Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as the lovely Borders towns and scenery just a short drive away.
