“Excellent”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A fantastic cottage, full of character and with everything you could need. It really felt homely and there are some really nice touches in the decor.

“absolutely perfect”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in September 2013

My husband, 2 children & I stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate my 30th birthday and it couldn't have been more perfect. The house itself was immaculate and so well maintained, it had everything we needed, from books & games to a well stocked kitchen.
the court yard was brilliantly safe for the children to play out in as the gates closed and locked.
As the owners knew it was my 30th birthday we were greeted with a bottle of champagne and a lovely keepsake heart which was really touching & such a thoughtful gift.
honestly cant recommend this holiday let highly enough, the town was a beautiful base for exploring and the owners went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect.
Thank you so very much

“Excellent secluded cottage, close to Edinburgh”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

On arrival at the cottage my husband and I enjoyed a complimentary bottle of wine whilst sitting in the secluded garden. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. Later we enjoyed a lovely meal at the local indian restaurant - it was amazing. The area is lovely and we were only a 2 minute walk away from the bus stop to Edin which is only about 20 mins away. We drove to the coast one day which only took about 15 mins and the weather was great! From the booking to the cottage, there's nothing I could fault and I will definitely be back in the future.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, we are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and that you found Painters Cottage and East Lothian as enchanting as we do. You are right,the property is an ideal location for both visiting the magnificent festival city of Edinburgh yet only a 15 minute drive to golden sandy beaches. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
