What a beautiful setting! We really enjoyed our short stay in Plum Cottage. It was just the right size for our family of four and had all mod cons and everything we needed for self-catering. Our hosts were friendly & welcoming, and told us everything we needed to know. The cottages are all nice and private with their own gardens. The kids loved the mini golf, and we all enjoyed exploring the network of paths down to Wallace's Cave. We did have problems with the internet extender not working, which our hosts did try to fix for us, but didn't get it sorted before the end of our stay. However we would definitely stay here again if we come back to Edinburgh.

These cottages are perfect if you are visiting Rosslyn Chapel and the surrounding glen and area. We arrived by train and hired a car from Edinburgh which was easier than taxies as the location is rural. The Originsl Rosslyn Inn is good for food if you don’t want to self cater, but facilities at the cottage for self catering are excellent. Loved it. So peaceful.

Joanna's place is magical. Only 20 minutes away from Edinburgh's castle (only hope there's no dense traffic) and all the sights in what is one of the most magnificent cities in Europe. Cherry on top is the private access to Rosslyn Glen and Wallace's cave.\ If you're looking for the best combination if country and city, then look no further. Gorton House is where you MUST go.

This cottage is cute and homely. The hosts are very friendly. However I feel it is overpriced for level of amenities provided. The location is good and the surroundings are beautiful.

We stayed in Apple Tree Cottage for 5 days. The location at Gorton House is beautiful and very peaceful. The gardens are very scenic and the walk into Roslin Glen is delightful. The cottage faces into its own enclosed orchard garden. The accommodation is very compact. Joanna and her son George were very helpful and proactive throughout our stay.
