2020 COVID 19 INFORMATION
Current regulations do not permit us to open until 1 June 2020 but this may be extended. Any bookings made from 15 May onwards may be liable to cancellation with full refund of the deposit. There is a minimum stay of 7 nights in order to be able to comply fully with CDC approved enhanced cleaning protocols. There will also be a period of at least 36 hours between guest departures and new arrivals entering the house.
Set within our 900 acre working organic farm, the Weston Farm house has it all: peace and quiet, stunning views, dark starry skies and an authentic taste of Scottish country life. With its huge rooms, furnished mainly with antiques and original art, the house is packed with character and quirky charm.
In the heart of central Scotland in the hidden Medwyn Valley, it’s a world away from the well trodden tourist trails. There’s a lot to see and do locally – castles, walks, gardens, museums – but its also within easy reach of the sights of Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Scottish Borders.
RELAX & UNWIND
Waken up to birdsong. Wander in the large and well-stocked (if slightly wild) garden or in the woods next to the house. On clear nights, admire the stars in a dark sky.
On colder days, curl up on comfy couches in front of the logburner, watch films or catch up on box sets on free streaming (Netflix, Amazon, NowTV). Cook in the well-equipped kitchen and listen to the Pure radio or music from the vast choice of CDs or on Spotify. Or play cards or board games or borrow a book from our extensive library.
WILDLIFE & NATURE
Explore our 900 acres of pasture and moorland and see our pedigree Shorthorn cattle and Lleyn sheep, spot deer running across the ancient moorland, waders and raptors on the managed wetland and hear skylarks on the moor. Our guided farm walk app makes exploring the farm easy. Take in our managed wetland, the Neolithic henge and the remains of a 16th century Pele tower.The app will also guide you through a circular walk in the solitude of the Pentland Hills directly from the house.
Please remember that the house is on a proper working farm. Cows moo and bulls bellow and tractors can make the yard muddy. Please don’t wash your car before you come – and if you want to walk around the farm, do bring wellies or sturdy boots.
There are 100 cows, 600 sheep, 10 horses, 4 dogs and 2 peacocks on the farm – and although we would love to take dogs, we can’t risk it.
HORSES & RIDING
With 900 acres of off-road hacking and 60 x 24 all weather arena, we are the perfect place for both stress-free hacking and intensive schooling. We welcome guests bringing horses on holiday and have facilities for up to four.
