Woodbine Cottage is a detached holiday home, ideally located in a peaceful hamlet in an AONB, with amazing views.

Perfectly located in the peaceful hamlet of Limestone Brae, near Carrshield, and nestled within the Pennines AONB, Woodbine Cottage is a detached 17th century cottage and former Quaker meeting house, and it is in the ideal location for guests wanting to enjoy a quiet holiday or cosy romantic break.

There are also several supermarkets and a great range of shops as well as a cinema and leisure facilities, including tenpin bowling and an indoor heated swimming pool.

    Woodbine cottage offers a completely rural location with easy access to local villages and towns for food and entertainment. The local area has fantastic walks and the views from the cottage are incredible. The cottage is spacious and clean. We would definitely recommend this cottage.

    Unfortunately the cottage is fed by water from a spring and due to the hot weather the demand on the spring from other properties ment we did not have enough to have showers on our last day. There was also a lack of mirrors in two of the bedrooms. The property was lovley and the views spectacular , we all had a great time.

    Beautiful traditional cottage in very peaceful remote scenic area. Great enclosed garden for dogs and children. Very cosy cottage with lovely log burner and home from home facilities. Lots within driving distance and walks from the door but not a area you would want to come if you want lots and activity. If you want privacy and peace then this is for you. Also Gill the caretaker is lovely and amazing!

    Stunning situation and dog loved the enclosed side garden and walks to the river. The provisions were most welcomed as we were snowed in for a couple of days. Lovely and warm and great help to have a landline as no mobile reception. Wonderful to watch the wildlife too. Feedback for owners: fix handrail to front door (potential accident), deep clean whole cottage, replace very worn out kitchen, fix both shower heads, fix plug in bathroom sink, think about fitting our side lights.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feedback on your stay at our cottage. I am glad you enjoyed the beauty of our valley and stayed warm and cosy during the recent wild weather! We have passed your comments about “a deep clean” to our cleaner although we have not found any problems when we have inspected the house. The kitchen is admittedly not brand new and new counter tops are in the works, but it is fully functional and most people find it quite attractive. Two new outside lights were commissioned back in January and the electrician has been waiting for a weather break to start the work. I am not sure what the problem is with the outdoor handrail but we will check it out as the safety of our guests is a priority. We hope we can welcome you to our cottage again in the future.
