The Little House on the Hill is one wing of this gorgeous stone-built house at Hillhouse Farm Escapes. A perfect place for chilling out, being outdoors, accessing Edinburgh, and moseying around Border towns. Cosy & modern, lovely open plan kitchen & lounge. The larger house next door is also available - it's listed as House on the Hill. A further cottage, Berry Hill, is just a few steps away!

The space
Little House on the Hill is available for 2-4 guests on a self-catering basis. The cottage forms part of Hillhouse Farm Escapes in the Scottish Borders which is also home to a few thousand sheep. The Sutherland family have farmed here for over 80 years across 3 generations. It's a fantastic place - sitting high on the hills overlooking Lauderdale it really does have tremendous views.

The Little House on the Hill is an old shepherd's house but it's been refurbished recently so now you'll find it to be modern & cosy. It has a lovely open plan kitchen / living room, two good sized bedrooms and a small shower room.

The house next door, the House on the Hill, is also available - it has virtually the same facilities as the Little House on the Hill but is much larger with an extra bathroom and separate kitchen and lounge. There are interconnecting doors between the two houses which we unlock if both properties are being rented by one party. The House on the Hill can, of course, also be rented completely separately. Berry Hill is the final cottages at Hillhouse Farm Escapes and also available on Airbnb.

Where you’ll be

Lauder, Scotland, United Kingdom

Staying on a working sheep farm in the Lauderdale area is a 'best of all worlds' location: it's the perfect place for chilling out, being outdoors, accessing Edinburgh (including the Festival), and moseying around historic Border towns. There is so much to do, you just have to work out how much you want to pack in! The Scottish Borders is one of the last "hidden gems" in Scotland and you will not be disappointed with it - full of history, landscape, seascapes, wildlife and all sorts of things to do. We also have fabulous cafes and restaurants so it's perfect for foodies too.
