Situated just 30 minutes from Edinburgh and 40 minutes from Glasgow, and within easy reach of the Scottish Borders, Ampherlaw makes the perfect base for exploring. Yet, despite its proximity to these key tourist attractions, the accommodation enjoys a quiet, rural location in South Lanarkshire, close to Carnwath, Biggar and Lanark. Ampherlaw Farmhouse's lovingly restored and converted barns dating from the 18th century now provide luxury self catering accommodation for 2 people, making it the ideal country retreat for a relaxing holiday in the countryside. The accommodation has been tastefully converted in keeping with its Listed Building status, with thick, Scottish sandstone walls and traditional wooden sash and case windows . The accommodation comprises a huge double bedroom suite with two comfortable fireside armchairs within the bedroom; a multi fuel stove within the sitting area of the bedroom; a large ensuite bathroom; a very large dining room furnished with antiques; and a fully equipped kitchen. All bed linen, towels and bathrobes are provided by us (changed weekly for longer stay guests), and the price includes a basket of logs and scuttle of coal for the stove, oil central heating and all electricity. Upon arrival you will find the kitchen already stocked with locally sourced produce such as milk, bread, butter, eggs, fruit and biscuits, along with tea, coffee, sugar and fresh orange juice; and the fire will be laid in cooler weather. We are here to ensure your holiday is as peaceful and enjoyable as possible. Self-catering holidays are available for 3 or 4 nights (subject to availability) or 7 nights (Saturday to Saturday). The cottage is completely private, with its own entrance from our courtyard. More
