Ideally situated for exploring the area

  • 5 of 5

With 4 adults and 3 children, we needed plenty of space for our week away which made The Stables the perfect choice for us. The property was ideally situated for explorering Edinburgh and the surrounding area.

I can’t thank Alastair enough for being quick to respond to any questions we had. We would love to stay here again.

Lovely house in convenient location for Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in Feb and couldn't find fault with the house or owners. Outside was freezing but the heating was brilliant and the beds warm and comfortable. The living space is large and open plan so with 5 adults and 2 kids it never felt crowded. The house is within 5 mins drive of train station and bus stops into Edinburgh and just off the A1 so easy driving north and south as needed. It was perfect for us to explore Edinburgh and East Lothian. The owner Alasdair was very helpful and communicated quickly to email enquires. Would recommend.

The Stables, Tranent

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was everything we could have asked for. Mr Raitt was very helpful without being intrusive. The house is spacious, very well equipped, warm and cosy. We had 8 adults in our party yet we never felt crowded. I would have no reservations about highly recommending the house.
