Our house (Calderbank Dairy) was the village dairy in the 1700’s so it’s quirky but beautiful whilst retaining its original character. The property has been extended and modernised over the years and has recently been refurbished ready for guests. Mid Calder is a beautiful village roughly 15 miles West of Edinburgh and has fantastic transport links. Our house is at the entrance to the Almondell and Calderwood county park and there are plenty of scenic walks so your furry friends are welcome too.

The space
You will be staying in our 1 bedroom annexe that forms part of a 4 bedroom, detached villa.
You will enter the annexe via a private entrance into an open plan Kitchen & Livngroom. The lounge has a 4 seater sofa and a drinks cabinet where you can help yourself to a 'wee dram' or two and leads through to a wonderful open plan kitchen/diner. The Kitchen has a fridge/freezer, oven, electric induction hob, slim line dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. The diner has a beautiful dining table that will seat up to 6 people. Upstairs there is a stunning space comprising of a double bed and a shower room with hand basin and W/C.

You will have access to a utility cupboard in 'bothy style' hallway where you will find an iron, ironing board and lots of fresh towels.

The property benefits from underfloor heating throughout.

Guest access
Our front walled garden contains a mixture of mature plants and trees, lawn and a mono-block entrance driveway provides you with generous off street parking.

Other things to note
The only thing that might impact your stay is our (at the time of writing) 8-week-old Labrador. He has already become part of the family and loves playing and people but don't fret, you will not see (or more importantly) hear him if you are not a fan of dogs.

I have been living in Edinburgh for 4 years and instantly felt at home in the city. After a year getting to know the different areas within Edinburgh, Hillside became my most sought after place to buy a home due to it's proximity to the town centre, the transport links and the fact that it felt a little more rural and tranquil than city centre living. My partner and I love travelling and enjoy short city breaks where we can totally immerse ourselves within the local culture. I look forward to inviting many guests to share and enjoy my home!

During your stay
We live on site and have stayed in Mid Calder for many years. We would be only too happy to walk you through the village to help you become familiarised with your surroundings. We will recommend local walks, places to eat and drink, places to explore (and places to avoid) as well list places of interest for you. We will be as hands on or hands off as you would like us to be and we want you to treat our house as your home for the duration of your stay. For folk looking to stay for extended periods, we will agree a suitable time with you for us to access the annexe to change the sheets, give the house a clean and replace necessities.
