    “What a lovely bungalow. I honestly ...”
    What a lovely bungalow. I honestly could find nothing to complain about. The owners were very nice and the people around were friendly. The property would have been ok in any weather. It was warm and cosy. Dog walks were from the door and the Wilsontown Ironworks world heritage site was only yards away. The back garden was a treat with the birds,squirrels and mousewater flowing past. Proberly the most relaxing week we have had

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 beds, which can also be set up as a second super king-size double on request.

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.
