Holly Cottage is a beautifully renovated three bedroom cottage in an idyllic rural setting in East Lothian, and is surrounded by open countryside.


Situated just seven miles east of Edinburgh city centre, Holly Cottage forms part of the acclaimed Springfield Steading development, very conveniently-situated just off the A1, with a great range of amenities on the doorstep.

The spacious accommodation is spread out over two floors, and it also has a lovely garden which offers up beautiful views. You enter the property through a porch with storage space, and into the inner hall. The sitting and dining room offers an open plan living area with high windows that allows the room to be filled with natural light. The sleek, modern kitchen is fully fitted and also has an informal dining space.

The bedroom on the ground floor has a large walk-in cupboard and wardrobe. There is also a large shower room with WC on this floor.

On the upper floor is a broad landing with space for a desk. The generous master bedroom has an en suite bathroom plus a large, fitted walk-in wardrobe. Bedroom two is a double bedroom with fitted wardrobe. Great care has been taken to ensure optimum year-round comfort with the latest standards of thermal insulation, full double glazing and efficient gas central heating complemented by solar panels which augment the domestic hot water supply. The home also has the benefit of two mono block paved, private parking spaces.



The property would make an ideal family or retirement home occupying a beautiful rural setting, yet close to Edinburgh and a wide range of excellent amenities.

Carberry is just one mile south of Musselburgh, which has a bustling theatre, famous racecourse, excellent golfing, a harbour for sailing and fishing and a very good choice of restaurants and inns. There are also a number of major supermarkets, including a 24 hour Tesco, Aldi and Lidl and a wide range of local shops including The Fine Wine Company.

East Lothian is an area of beautiful coastline and countryside, offering some great opportunities for those who love the great outdoors. The property is on the edge of the Buccleuch Estate with several Rights of Way, including the Queen’s Walk, reputed to have been a favourite of Mary, Queen of Scots.

Nearby Wallyford has a train station with Park-and-Ride and the journey from by train from Edinburgh takes only 15 minutes. The rural hamlet of Carberry is comprehensively supported by a superb array of road networks including the A1 Bypass, some 500 yards to the north, connecting with the Edinburgh City Bypass, as well as the A68 and A7, the airport and the motorway network, making this a perfect rural location within easy reach of everything you could possibly wish for.
