We have three cosy self-catering cottages on the farm for you to choose from. The Stable is perfect for 2, the Steading sleeps 4 and our largest house, the Byre can sleep 4 with the option of 2 more on a comfortable sofa-bed.

Bring the Dog! We're pet friendly

If your holiday would not be the same without your four legged friend, don't worry we are happy to accommodate 2 dogs per cottage for the additional charge of £20 per dog. We just have to insist on a few basic house rules, so please make sure your dog agrees to the following:

  • I promise to be extremely well behaved and not to bark and disturb other guests if I'm left alone.
  • I understand that my dog bed is the best place to sleep and even if human beds and furniture look really cosy it's not allowed at Eastside.
  • I promise not to chase sheep or anything else when out and about walking on the farm.
  • I'll make sure that my owners will dispose of 'doggiebags' in a proper manner.
  • I swear that if I nibble or accidentally damage anything I'll get my owners to pay for the damage (even if they are very cross with me)!
  • I'll tell my owners that it's best to let the Cowan family know about me when booking.
