Description

One of two purpose-built lodges for self-catering holiday accommodation. (The two lodges together can cater for parties up to 12 + 2 infants, both are pet friendly) Aspen lodge with its elevated position within the woodland command’s fantastic views of the Pentland Hills and the Southern Uplands. Secluded in 20 acres of private woodland, which you will share with a small herd of roe deer that live there, rich in animals (a new family of otters spotted recently) and birdlife. Nestled in the foothills of the Pentland Hills on the edge of the Scottish Borders yet only 30 minutes from Edinburgh City Centre. Recently completed in the early part of 2021, made in a carbon neutral way from sustainable timber and manufactured here in Scotland. We use energy from renewable sources and even the fuel for the log stoves is from our own sustainable woodland. As a commitment to the environment we will plant a tree for every booking made (guests can plant their own tree in season) and spend a minimum of 20 % of our profit on conservation projects. Currently we are committed to and participate in the captive breeding programme of the Saving Wildcats project led by the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland to help breed the Scottish Wildcat for release back into the wild. Guests will enjoy custom luxury handmade toiletries from Lather & Smudge as well as complimentary Gin & Tonics from a unique gin recipe handcrafted for us by Pentland Hills Gin based on their award-winning recipe but in addition using the juniper berries harvested from the Merklands Wood.

Electric vehicle charging point.

Full covid 19 protocols followed including fogging machine between lets.

There are shops, bars, restaurants and hotels in West Linton (4 miles), Biggar (7 miles), Peebles (12 miles) and Lanark (12 miles), some will deliver.

There are unlimited opportunities for dog walking. The woodland itself has about 4 kms of paths through the trees. From the door there is access onto the Pentland Hills. There are numerous other areas within a few minutes by car that are regular dog walking areas. We can advise on all types of walking, around lochs, along rivers, hillwalking and beaches.
