Former lodge house to the Usher family home (now Norton House Hotel and Spa owned by 'Handpicked Hotels').
The 'Usher family financed the building of the Usher Hall in Edinburgh, when the Hall was refurbished a few years ago a section of the auditorium floor was purchased and installed into the bedroom of the lodge house.
The garden was landscaped by an eccentric previous owner in 1970's producing a 7 acre adult 'playground' with tunnels, cave and elevations giving 360 degree views from the top to the Forth bridges, Edinburgh etc.

Easy access to Edinburgh; bus or tram. South Queensferry with its lovely historic cobbled high street. Glasgow, Stirling and further all easily accessed. See near by 'Kelpies' and 'Falkirk Wheel'.

Short walk 1/2ml to Norton House Hotel and Spa with two restaurants and bar. 1/2ml local M&S and Coop close for food purchases. Royal Highland Show Ground on the doorstep. Cycle route on the door-step in to Edinburgh or cycle along Union Canal

Couldn't be easier; easy walk to Edinburgh airport or 747 bus. Park and Ride/Tram/Bus stop virtually on the door step with direct routes (£1.50pp) in to Edinburgh city centre. Lots of other bus routes available to take you further in any direction. Cycle route on the doorstep.

Spend lots of time in Edinburgh (6.5ml away) but dont miss South Queensferry, Linlithgow or Ratho Village.

Unforgettable stay! Beautiful quaint cottage to feel you are lost in the countryside, while only being a stones throw from the city! With acres of private land to roam and explore- what is not to love

Situated on a main road with walkable access to local shops and excellent public transport links, as non-drivers this really suited us! Judy and Adrian were able to accommodate an early check-in for us which was perfect as we arrived straight off the sleeper train at about 8am. Adrian did a whistle-stop tour of the house and made sure we were perfectly comfortable and set up for our exciting 4-day stay. We came up for Hogmanay and the location was ideal, as it's an easy 20-30 minutes on the bus. The cottage itself is stunning, a real find! The interior is an eclectic mix of modern fixtures and rustic antiques. Perfect for a couple after a romantic getaway. It's extremely well-equipped with two TV's, wi-fi, electric oven, microwave and every board game you could think of. In fact if there's something that you'd normally pack for a self-catering trip away, best check with Judy first as she's probably already got it! Although it's not in walkable distance of any restaurants, we did do a couple of cheeky takeaways which were very nice, they found us with some careful directions and we avoided disturbing our lovely hosts next door! My only regret is that we didn't have a chance to explore their picturesque gardens - they sounded like fun but with such activity-packed days and with the sun going down at 3.45 each day [December], we didn't find the time. I would welcome any excuse to come again!

Adrian met us first, he showed us everything we need in the house and he spice up his conversation with some jokes that I loved very much...Adrian was very welcoming with huge smile on his face.... The lodge was specious, clean and comfortable. (It was more than we asked for).. by the time that we checked out we met Judith she is amassing and again this huge smile on her face makes you feel like you are home... I really recommend this place to everyone.

Judith and her husband Adrian's property made for one of the most memorable stays I've had. The cottage was very charming, tastefully decorated, and well-equipped with creature comforts (tea, coffee, biscuits, and a bottle of wine were all graciously provided). I really enjoyed trying to find the gargoyles hidden around. I found 6, but when I asked Adrian if that was all of them he smiled and replied "ohhhh no." The location was great -- Edinburgh is a short bike ride, drive, or bus trip away. I recommend checking out the canal path nearby. The highlight, though, was the garden in the back. Adrian described it as "different" and this was a severe understatement. With multiple ponds, stones on which you could cross them, and a giant wall of boulders lining it, by aesthetics alone it was already exquisite. But I was invited to explore it, so I endeavored to find its secrets. I succeeded in droves. I don't want to spoil too much for future guests, so I'll just describe the highlights... I spent at least 2 hours in all carefully climbing the boulders, finding passageways, delicious berries & apples, and a few chambers within. There are even some deep underground passageways to pump rooms. I felt like a kid in a giant natural playground. Apparently it was once even more splendid, when they had a gardener to take care of it, but honestly I liked it so much as it is -- a little wild -- and I hope future caretakers keep it at least a bit untamed. I hope I can stay with Judith and Adrian again, and I urge you to stay with them, too. Enjoy your time in the playground :)
