*Coming soon* The Cartshed is a stunning barn conversion open for bookings from 6th May. A mirror image of the WashHouse, every detail has been considered; a seamless blend of old and new. At the end of a winding farm track, this stunning architectural hideaway is surrounded by the rugged heather hills & glens of the Pentland Hills Regional Park.
We cannot wait to show you what we have been working on. It has been well worth the wait!
A modern interpretation of a barn conversion, this architectural gem fits beautifully into its 18th Century farm yard. The original sandstone exterior hides a bright and crisp interior with huge windows framing the heather hills and woodland garden.
Beautifully designed, the light & airy double-height space takes on a Scandinavian feel through its muted use of colour and simple materials. Light floods through the windows with plained ash window seat and generous sheepskins. An open-plan space is thoughtfully divided through level changes, perforated screens and bespoke furniture.
Start your day with a hike into the heather-clad hills on your doorstep. Embrace slow-living with the wood-fired sauna (opening end of May 2022) hidden in the woodland garden - although shared, each cottage gets its own private time slots. Explore Edinburgh or curl up by the wood burning stove with a good book. Eastside is your perfect hideaway surrounded by our 3,000-acre hill farm.
Kitchen and living room
The open plan kitchen and living room are separated from the rest of the space by a wooden ash screen. The living room is on the lower level - small but perfectly formed with wood burning stove and window seat with lots of lovely sheepskins. The kitchen is on a slightly higher level up a folded steel staircase. A sleek, bespoke handcrafted kitchen/ tv unit book case divides the space in two.
Bedroom and bathroom
Behind the ash screen is a cosy bed nook with the comfiest of double beds. Sink into crisp linen, woollen blankets and the softest pillows. Fall asleep in perfect comfort listening to the crackle of the stove and the wind in the trees.
The bathroom has white marble tiles and a rain shower. The polished concrete floor has underfloor heating throughout.
From the bedroom, a ladder leads upstairs to a hidden mezzanine. Perfect for star-gazing or whiling away the day with a book from our curated collection.
