The Woodshed is a stunning, brand new, uber cool cottage for two with Scandinavian-inspired luxury interiors just outside Edinburgh.
Super stylish Woodshed perfect for two
The super stylish Woodshed is the perfect bolthole for two. Located on a working sheep farm in the shadow of the Pentland hills, set amongst the trees, at the top of a rough farm track, it’s hard to believe you are so close to Edinburgh and all its city delights. It’s a handy base for whatever you fancy; exploring the rolling countryside of the Pentland hills, the city culture of Edinburgh, the beaches of East Lothian, or just chilling out on the farm.
Stylish Scandi themed wood and minimalist décor
Inside, the timber-clad cottage boasts lots of stylish Scandi themed wood and minimalist décor, with whitewashed wood, clean lines, and an airy open plan double-height lounge, dinning and kitchen area. The friendly owners left us a welcome pack with fresh scones and tea, along with locally sourced fresh flowers, a lovely personalised start to our stay.
Stunning contemporary log burner
There is a stunning contemporary log burner and complementary logs, although with the underfloor heating (via super-efficient ground-source heap pump) and polished concrete floors, this remained unlit. This open-plan lounge has a clever dining table, which can be easily folded away to make the most of the space.
The huge and very comfy sofa is the place to enjoy views out of the patio doors to the dramatic lonely tree on the hillside. You can relax with a good book and enjoy your music via the Bluetooth soundbar or watch a film on the Blue ray DVD player.
The WIFI in the house is decent and the cosy lounge is a fab place to chill and plan your next day’s adventures. The kitchen is first class, with posh Denby crockery, Sabatier knives and a supply of oil, herbs, coffee and tea. It’s well-equipped with induction hob, oven and microwave and a dishwasher, there’s no excuse for not cooking up a gourmet dinner!
Superb slate tiling and rain shower
The Woodshed has a stylish and contemporary bathroom with superb slate tiling and rain shower, fluffy towels, and selection of luxury bodywashes from Scottish Fine Soaps.
Upstairs in the delightful mezzanine bedroom, where the emphasis on striking natural whitewashed wood and clean lines continues, there’s a super comfy king-size bed, with crisp white linen, some antique furniture, a selection of lovely books and a window out to the hills. I fell asleep listening to the trees blowing in the wind.
Outside there is a patio and terraced area (Look out for the chickens wandering past) under construction and a woodburning hot tub is set to arrive for the summer!
Westside Woodshed is special place – a beautifully designed and stylish contemporary cottage with a delightful rural location and yet so close to Edinburgh. It’s full of charm and the ideal place for a luxury escape for two.

Get your boots on and go for a walk in the Pentland Hills, you can walk from the cottage door. Breathtaking views and good path make for a great day out. In summer the heather clad hills are spectacular. There are maps and guidebooks in the house or just ask Jenny for advice.
