The New Farmhouse description

Set in rolling farmland at the edge of a tiny cluster of houses, this deceptively spacious holiday cottage has views of Tinto Hill and lies one and a half miles from the pretty town of Biggar with its many amenities and Museum of Biggar and Upper Clyde. A sociable open plan living area has a cosy wood burner and patio doors opening onto the deck. There is heaps of surrounding space for children to play in the enclosed garden and for relaxing after a day out. Ideally located for easy discovery of the vibrant cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, and the lovely Scottish Borders. There are activities for every age and interest within easy reach: nine golf courses, fishing and hill walking, as well as historic houses and gardens, including Traquair House and Dawyck Botanic Gardens. Peebles is 25 minutes’ drive with plenty of independent shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as a swimming pool, and just five minutes further is Glen Tress & Innerleithen mountain biking centre and the Go Ape ropes course. Visit the World Heritage Site of New Lanark, 15 miles, for a fascinating insight into life as a mill worker 230 years ago, and to see the spectacular Falls of Clyde.
