Located right on the leafy south side edge of Glasgow with, as the name suggests, countryside views, Fieldside Cottage provides a unique, tranquil countryside retreat away from the hubbub, yet within easy reach of all that Glasgow and beyond has to offer. Fieldside stands alone and is ideally situated in the prestigious, much sought-after residential suburb of Newton Mearns in the area known as Malletsheugh. 1 minute walk from Indian Restaurant/Bar and 2 minute drive from “The Avenue Shopping Centre” which offers Asda Supermarket, Marks & Spencer and a good variety of other shops as well as Banks, Restaurants and Coffee Houses. Of local interest is the lovely Rouken Glen Park with its Pond, Waterfall and River Glen Walks and fantastic Children's Playground. Well worth a visit is The National Trust’s “Greenbank Garden”. In less than 2 minutes you can hop on to the M77 and the larger Silverburn Shopping Centre with Cinema Complex is a mere 5 minute drive and the convenience of the vibrant, bustling City Centre of Glasgow is only a 15 minute drive away. In 10 minutes you can visit “The Museum of Rural Life or Calderglen Park with its small Zoo and Conservatory in East Kilbride (via A726). The M77 can also take you to the “Burrell Collection Museum” & “Pollok House” in Pollok Country Park as well as link you to both the M8 and M74. Going in the other direction, in 30-40 minutes on the M77 you can enjoy the sea breeze on Scotland’s West Coast and perhaps pay a visit to The Robert Burns Heritage Centre in Ayr or drive on a little further to visit Culzean Castle. You might even consider getting up early one day to spend the day on the Island of Arran (known as “Scotland in Miniature” take the ferry boat from Ardrossan). Fieldside Cottage is in an ideal location for being able to travel in virtually any direction and experience the huge diversity of Scotland….Without too much travelling!

About Michele George
Hello! My name is Michele George and I live just 5 minutes away from Fieldside Cottage in the lovely Glasgow area of Newton Mearns. Contact available throughout stay. For 12 years now have successfully run my own small family Self Catering Accommodation business collectively called "Glasgow Self Catering Apartments". I offer 3 and 4-Star "Home from Home" Self Catering Accommodation with an attentive, knowledgeable but unobtrusive approach. Officially Graded by VisitScotland - The National Tourist Board for Scotland. I am also a member of the ASSC - Association of Scotland's Self Caterers so you can be assured of a professional and efficeient service. The most important thing to me is that my guests are happy. I know that, from experience, if you stay once, you will return again if you come back to Glasgow, as my many repeat guests do, time after time. I graduated with Honours as a Teacher of Physical Education in 1982 and then taught in London. I worked as a Holiday Representative for Thomson Holidays for six years and I bring that valuable experience very much into how I organise what I do now in terms of hospitality, organisation and attention to detail. I then retrained as a Teacher of Primary Education before meeting my husband and starting a family. I started "Glasgow Self Catering Apartments" in 2007 and I added the lovely Fieldside Cottage in 2015. You can be confident that you will receive the best Scottish hospitality. I look forward to welcoming you to the wonderful City of Glasgow.
