4 Quality Self-Catering / Vacation Rental Properties within easy reach of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Livingston
A great base from which to explore the wealth and variety of landscape, attractions and activities that Scotland offers, guests talk of “coming home” to Crosswoodhill. Whilst the cooks in your party benefit from excellent kitchen facilities to serve up good Scottish fare, the rest of you can relax in front of an open fire, switch off and enjoy background music, a book, board game or a good film. Or, pull on your boots to explore our livestock farm and listen to birdsong....
Pictured here are our 4 properties, all uniquely different, but all sharing the Crosswoodhill trademarks of charm, character, warmth, style, home comforts and caring hosts. Child, wheelchair and pet–friendly, our holiday cottages extend an all-year-round welcome to families, groups of friends, business people and all who revel in the freedom self-catering offers. Our 3 smaller properties sleep up to 6 each and our stunning contemporary lodge sleeps 12 + 4 guests in luxury.
White, light and bright, with beautiful fittings and fabrics, the interiors are exceptionally tasteful and pleasing to the eye. "The decor is superb... the eye for detail amazing" is a typical comment in our Visitors' Books and feedback forms.
Pictured above is Orlege End, our 5 Star 2004 conversion at the far end of Crosswoodhill Farmhouse. Much admired for its contemporary chic design and striking features, its layout, though superb for couples, is perhaps less family friendly than the more conventional layout of our popular 4 Star Steading Cottage at the hub of the farm. More traditional, and with a lovely ambience, is the self-contained high 3 Star Wing of Crosswoodhill, a 2-storey apartment in our spacious, handsome, 200 year old, farmhouse. (The Wing is located in the older part of the building, spanning from the centre to far left of the photo). And one mile distant, enjoying a large field all to itself is 5 Star Craigengar Lodge, close to the heather-clad moors of the Pentland Hills. Completed in 2011, Craigengar, named after the hill it overlooks, totally takes you by surprise. It’s magnificent!

For business people, with or without family, Crosswoodhill offers a real home from home. Just twenty minutes' drive away from commercially thriving Livingston, West Lothian, and 35 minutes from the heart of Edinburgh, a home on the Pentland Hills is the perfect place to unwind.
"Having come to Crosswoodhill for the first time last year we had to come again to see if it was really as good as we thought it was. Happily it was!! In a (Visitors') Book full of superlatives it is difficult to add anything new, but this is not really a holiday cottage, it's a fantastic home for a week."
To get a good feel for all our very different properties, why not have a look at some of the other nice things our guests have written? And whilst on our Comments Page, smile at the antics of our cows, enjoy a panoramic view of the Pentland Hills..and feel welcomed in Scotland.
