East Lothian Retreats - Crauchie Farmhouse
Bed and Breakfast (Minimum nights - 2)
The property ownerHosted by Sophia
Crauchie Farm House is a picturesque 200-year-old farmhouse burrowed in the countryside, secluded yet accessible due to the house's proximity to a nearby A-road. Reside amid nature with a perfect base to explore the surrounding area, such as Gullane, Haddington, and East Linton.
Sophia and Richard have recently welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world, giving the property a youthful flair. Her bedroom is on a separate floor and on the opposite side of the house so that the noise will be minimal.
About the property
The Farmhouse Bedroom is ideal for a couple or a single traveller; you can make the space your own with all of the classic amenities provided by the hosts. A fridge, dryer and washing machine will mean your time here feels more homely as you can reuse clothing and store food.
Guests will have access to the front sitting room where breakfast will be served (for an additional cost), and you can relax in comfort while reading books and soaking in the aura of the property.
Grounds, Cooking and Yoga
Crauchie Farmhouse has an acre of land around the property and is located by woodland—a truly great spot for nature lovers. Sophia and Richard recommend the forests to runners as there is a delightful 5k and 10k loop to keep up your fitness and get back in touch with nature.
Richard, a professional chef, is pleased to offer private cooking lessons to guests wishing to improve their culinary skills. After the kitchen's heat, guests can also partake in a private yoga class or get massage treatment to be at one with their surroundings and work off all the fabulous home cooked food.
The farmhouse has a beautiful garden perfect for relaxing in the sun when the weather is suitable; Sophia has also planted a fruit orchard to enhance the area's beauty when fully grown.
Having grown up in the area, Sophia and Richard are passionate about showing the best of the location, including improving on what she can herself.
Points about the surrounding area
The closest village to Crauchie Farmhouse is East Linton, a historic town that has a lovely flowing river with great walks surrounding it and a market to spend hours enjoying. Preston Mill is an excellent attraction for guests wanting to understand the history of the area. Just 10 minutes from East Linton is North Berwick, a stunning seaside town with all the classic features you would expect. A family could happily spend the afternoon exploring the shops and eating fish and chips. There are also many options for adults as the town has so much to offer!
Scotland's capital city is only forty minutes away; the property is incredibly secluded but accessible due to its proximity to a motorway. You can spend a whole day discovering what Edinburgh offers; it is an exceptional place to visit.
