“A timeless example of the epitome of Scotland's beauty”
An idyllic place to stay! We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend and were impressed with the size and grandeur of both the cottage (more like a castle) and the estate as a whole! Would also highly recommend the clay pigeon shooting!
“A fabulous trip with fabulous friends in fabulous accommodation!”
I recently enjoyed a trip at Winton Cottage with a group of 11 of my close friends for a celebration of my 50th birthday. The property had large, well equipped rooms which were spotless. The 5 bathrooms meant that there was no queuing for showers/bath facilities. The beds are very clean and comfortable and the bathrooms are immaculate. There are several communal areas including a games room and lovely lounge area with open fire as well as a large, comfortable lounge/dining area just off the kitchen where we spent most of our time as a group. We were allowed to have a mobile beautician who set up in one of the communal areas so that we could each enjoy a pampering session and we did not feel like we had sacrificed space. At one point we required some help with regards the heating and the caretaker not only responded immediately but was very friendly and extremely helpful. We are already planning our second trip as the only complaint I would have is that it wasn't long enough!
“An excellent country farmhouse with great facilities.”
Guests stayed here during my wedding in December. We enjoyed the log fire and pool/music facilities the night before the wedding and had a lovely breakfast on the morning of the big day. All the rooms were of a nice spec. I imagine it's even better in the summer when the garden would be a bit warmer.
“Ideal weekend retreat”
We stayed at Winton cottage with family and close friends this past August when our son got married at Winton House. The cottage was in immaculate condition when we arrived and extremely well appointed. The whole process from booking, getting directions to the property, information about local amenities to final the check out, couldn't have been smoother. I need an excuse to return.....
Response from the owner Thank you for a lovely review, we certainly enjoyed having you stay at Winton Cottage. We have some great last-minute deals on the Winton House website - so if you are looking for that excuse to return... you just might find it there....
“Very comfortable and well appointed”
Winton Cottage is located in beautiful country within 45 mins. of central Edinburgh (by car and train). It has a lovely garden and there are many beautiful walks that can be taken (20 min to 3 hours or more). There are 6 bedrooms - 1 independent on ground floor and 2 up one staircase and 3 up another. All bedrooms except 1 are en suite. There is very little missing from the kitchen that even the most earnest chef might desire (one recommendation, however, bring your herbs from home!). The crockery glassware and cutlery etc. are quite sufficient although it is a bit of a medley. There is a lovely dining room and well appointed living room with a good fireplace (sometimes essential even in a Scottish summer!). There is a huge games room with pool table and a garden shed containing a charcoal bbq and some games for adults and children. For those that have stayed in Landmark Trust rentals, Winton Cottage was a very worthwhile alternative!
“Excellent, charm-filled, accommodation in beautiful tranquil sur”
The Winton website is excellent but even the glide through cannot entirely do this place justice. From the grand entrance to all of the beautiful furniture inside and the lovely gardens overlooking quiet countryside - I defy you not to have a relaxing weekend when you stay here. Lovely combination of old features but top level modern quality. For example a lovely country kitchen with sunny dining area - where you can listen to music on the sound system that controls the music in every room in the house. Bede gave us a very thorough tour and Rachel had been so thorough in advance it was never in doubt that this place is professionally run. No problems whatsoever with the accommodation during the stay - only regret is I forgot to write in the guest book! Highly, highly recommend it.
“Relaxed and luxurious”
Stayed for a week with 2 other families we know. Facilities were excellent. That rare balance between grandiose and comfortable. Very tasteful large cottage with excellent living space. We were surprised by the amount of living space for 12 people, it seemed more spacious than on the video walkthrough. Location was ideal for young families - lots of outdoor space for football and hide and seek, all within closed garden area and masses of wooded areas outside for the more adventurous. The owners and caretakers were lovely people and I thoroughly recommend taking the free tour of the house - it's a real treat! Only 2 negatives - the dishwasher struggled to get the plates clean and the pool table was broken by the previous guests. The owners tried to get it repaired while we were there but it needed more attention than they could give it. These were minor points, however and overall we'd go back again.
“A first class accomodation in a beautiful setting”
Getting the bride ready for her wedding day was such a pleasure in this warm, welcoming,beautifully decorated property. It made the precious time we had to spend with family,some who had come over from australia so perfect. Some wonderful photos, and precious memories and tearful farewells.
what a fantastic location for a weekend of family celebration. the setting provided enough space, elegance and privacy to furnish both a wedding and 50th birthday party. unforgettable
“We had a fabulous time at Winton Cottage!”
Winton Cottage is a wonderful house with lots of space for family and friends to come and go, enough privacy for everyone but with a delightful social and warm feel to the house. The rooms are beautifully appointed, large and have a good range of furniture. The conversion and decorations are lovely but not too "precious” or "antique” that we had to worry about having lots of boys in the house. The garden is beautiful, although due to the wet weather we did not use this as much as we would have liked. The younger generation enjoyed the pool table and small ceiling disco lights in the TV room. The house is also in an excellent location for people visiting from Edinburgh and very close to the a1. This is a great place to stay.
