Stayed for a weekend in April at the fabulous Muirhall Luxury Cottages near Biggar. We stayed in the Hayloft cottage which was beautiful and finished to a really high standard with natural oak, slate and stone finishings. Our ensuite even had a standalone corner bath! On arrival we received a welcome basket which included bottles of wine, fresh fruit and chocolates! Brilliant service which made us feel really welcome and got our holiday off to a great start. The cottage was also immaculately clean which was great. Facilities were defintely 5 star and very modern. The kitchen provided everything you would need to self-cater, and the television had a wide selection of channels in many languages. There is also a dvd player and the owners provide a library of dvds that you can borrow if you want to sit in front of the coal fire and just relax! In addition there is a small putting green to pass away a bit of time.
The rural location makes you feel as if you are miles from anywhere, even though Glasgow and Edinburgh are only about 30 minutes away. It is also an ideal base for exploring some of the lovely local towns of Biggar and New Lanark, which we did on the Saturday.
The owners live on site and take the time to chat and get to know you and to advise of some good local restaurants. Chris was particularly friendly and happily showed us round some of the other cottages, all of which looked amazing. We felt the personalised service added to the holiday experience!
Would definitely return here and have already recommended to our friends and family.
