Did you realise that East Lothian has over 20 golf courses both links and inland, including the famous Muirfield Links where The Open is sometimes held? So if you’re looking for a golfing holiday, it’s an ideal place to go. The area also boasts sweeping sandy beaches on the east coast of Scotland and wide open spaces and views of the Lammermuir Hills. A new addition to Which Cottage is 5 star rated Winton Cottage which is situated in the grounds of Winton House, one of Scotland’s most beautiful stately homes. The property, sleeping 10-12 in luxury self-catering accommodation, is ideal for a group holiday or family holiday as there is so much to do close by from excellent fishing to sailing, horse riding and hill walking. If you fancy a day at the races, Musselburgh Racecourse has a full calendar of events and a day at the races is enjoyed by many guests. You can also enjoy Scotland’s famous Whisky as Glenkinchie Distillery is just on the doorstep and offers tours and tastings. There is also the award-winning Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick, not to mention the city of Edinburgh itself. On the Estate itself, the owners are happy to arrange a multitude of activities from clay pigeon shooting to whisky/champagne tasting, and even Highland Games (guests should book in advance). This luxury holiday house offers the finest accommodation for an idyllic holiday in Scotland. You’ll just have to book for 2 weeks as there’s so much to do!

Cottage Owners Update

No Comments, Holiday Cottage News, by Veronica.

The feedback from Whichcottage property owners is that the summer season 2011 has been very strong for bookings but also that people looking for late availability and holiday cottage deals is on the increase. Which Cottage Fact: Owners who update their availability calendars regularly have a much higher conversion rate from enquiry to booking. Don’t give the wrong impression – people looking for holiday properties do not like looking at a calendar that is empty! Thoughts: Stock up with wood – cottages with log fires and wood burning stoves are in high demand during the winter months. With Christmas 25th December being on a Sunday and New Year’s Eve 31st December on a Saturday night – consider flexibility over your booking days! What’s in development: www.scotland-holiday-cottage.com Caithness and Sutherland area split – forming Far North Scotland. All UK Coming soon, a live trial of a late availability section that owners can control – allowing price reductions / special offers for specific weeks and a map search facility. We’ll let you know more soon so watch this space!
