European Holiday Homes Association  August 2017:  We have just heard that our large 5 STAR eco-lodge, Craigengar, is a finalist in the  the Best Green Holiday Home  category of the European Holiday Home Awards.  Our Steading Cottage is also a finalist in the Best Accessible Holiday Home category. ,  Final judging takes place in late September. .   

This follows on from our success in the Auturm of 2016 when  Craigengar  won the best Accessible Holiday Home.  Craigengar  was also a 2016  finalist in the Green Holiday Home award and subsequently featured in a very prestigiou  French Architectural; magazine. There were over 300 entries from all over Europe to this competition in 2016.  In 2017 there were vastly more so we are really delighted with this good 2017 news and are keeping our fingers crossed  for the final verdict. . .


We hope you like our website.  We are delighted with the way it appears on pcs and tablets.  However it is not displaying as well as we had hoped on mobile devices. Work is in progress as from August 2017  to increase our cottages "kerb appeal" as seen on mobile devices!  It will be a few weeks yet before we go live with the conversion.   Meantime we hope this site covers  everything future guests would find useful. However your feedback would be welcome. and we may be able to incorporate useful ideas into the refreshed versiion.

August 2015...

Our extra special investment this year is the play area we have created in the mature woodland behind Crosswoodhill Farmhouse.  Accessible to all 3 of our smaller cottages, families are really loving the garden playfort, the large family swing, sling and toddler slings in what is essentially a nature playground shaded by mature trees, with views to the fields beyond.  With the added benefits of a see-saw, trapeze bar and rings, balancing logs and a picnic table for supervising adults, it's the perfect place to unwind at the end of a day. Or  anytime.
