In a lovely rural location, just a short drive from Edinburgh, Crosswoodhill offers quality accommodation at its best:  country cottages of your dreams. well-equipped, flexible family accommodation that feels like home. Fitted and furnished to an exemplary standard, each property is superbly and thoughtfully equipped - fresh flowers, games, toys, teddies and plentiful up-to-date tourist information.

One of the four properties on offer, however, stands out like a priceless jewel. As you leave the sheltering belt of trees and view for the first time the imposing grandeur of timber clad Craignevar, the focus on contemporary style is immediately apparent. In a field all to itself, with a curved aluminium roof, its picture windows, its hardwood oak and its granite work surfaces, its splendid bespoke ash and metal staircase, its luxurious leather sofas and its fabulous views, it is effectively in a class of its own. There's wonderfully atmospheric mood lighting, a Sonos sound system, ipod docking station, eye-catching pottery and artworks, and much more.

It is memorable enough to have had this endorsement from the Scottish Tourist Board: 'Exceptional, world-class'. They did of course award it Five Stars.
