A charming Bed and Breakfast in the Meldons
The old farmhouse was built in 1723 for a Edinburgh candle-maker and his new wife as their summer residence away from the smell of Edinburgh: by 1880 it belonged to the man who cracked the process which led to start-up of Standard Oil; some of the neighbours are even older as we have two Bronze Age Rings and settlements behind the house, one of several ancient dwellings in the Meldons
This suite of rooms is in a modern 3 room Log cabin –with views over the garden to the White Meldon and Dundreich –is set up as a double and a twin, with a small sitting area , together with a loo, basin and walk in shower . The cabin is warm and cosy – having double glazed window and doors, comfortable beds and antique furniture, decent lighting and heaters. The cabin is separate from the house, so you can come and go as you please and the small distance adds a bit of privacy
Breakfast is served in the conservatory of the House. Though there is a hospitality tray in the Cabin with a choice of beverages there are no cooking facilities and only simple food storage is provided- though a microwave and cool-box can be provided on request.
Pets are welcome and are not charged for, but not in the cabin- we do have a young at heart Labrabor, who tends to be very welcoming.
Smoking - by Scots law is not allowed in the Cabin or House
