What a charming place. A previous gate house with a paddock for horses and beautiful well kept gardens. The living room is open and bright with views of gardens and the country surroundings.
Marjorie is a wonderful hostess, always helping you with planning and insuring your stay is comfortable. Bedrooms and guest common areas are very clean and welcoming for visitors. The friendly dog and horses provide a unique stay.
The breakfasts are prepared to your liking with several choices selected the evening before. Yes, Majories homemade jams are heavenly. You will grow to love this woman if you take the time to stay at Dunesk Lodge (our stay was 3 days).
The location in Lasswade is close to two restaurant pubs and bus travel to Edinburgh is only 25 minutes. The walk around the village is pleasant with a lovely stream and several bridges. A short drive to Rosslyn castle and chapel are worth the visit. The nature trail to the waters edge and beyond is a lovely half day experience.
Take the opportunity to stay at Dunesk if you want to a mix of city access and Scottish country/village life. Lovely lanes and walks to wear off the fantastic breakfast.
