    Cottage was lovely. Our hosts were delightful, and very helpful. The garden is a jewel. We found no fault with our accommodation, but unfortunately my own health deteriorated while we were there, and we had to leave early. The last thing we said to each other as we left was, "We'll be back".

    We enjoyed a week at Shepherd House Cottage. Peaceful, relaxing cottage. From the windows, looking on to the wonderful garden,was an added treat.

    This is an excellent situated location for both the city and east Lothian. The cottage was spotless and well equipped. Access to view the superb renowned gardens was an added bonus. Only minor observation was that bedding is down filled rather than synthetic and, in my case, caused slight problem due to allergies. Otherwise recommend a visit and we will certainly be visiting again.

    An excellent base for exploring East Lothian and the Borders as well as easy access to Edinburgh by bus and train. An incredible bonus was access to the beautiful Sheperd House Garden.
