Leave the urban life behind and come to relax under the light of the stars and the moon with only the sound of birds at these beautifully refurbished traditional stone farm cottages which are set at the centre of a privately owned 830 acre working farm. We are situated in a remote location which will invigorate you whether you are looking to put your feet up to soak up the serenity of the landscape or as a base to explore the countryside with endless opportunities for new adventures and experiences.
There is always something different happening on the farm as our changing landscapes tell the story of the farming year through every season. Within our range of outdoor activities we offer a farm tour giving our guests the opportunity to see the farm through the farmer’s eyes. Our programme of activities are all tailored to and suitable for both children and adults. They are a great way to explore the surrounding area either at a gentle pace with a guided walk in the Lammermuir Hills or you may prefer to try an invigorating swim in the Danskine Loch with our Introduction to Mindful Loch Swimming. Or take the opportunity to get more involved with hands on activities like Foraging Fun and Bushcraft experiences. Or simply create your own adventure using the maps of the surrounding areas, provided in the cottages for our guests, to explore the magic of the local area.
Our luxury holiday cottages offer perfect accommodation for secluded cottage breaks all year round. The cottages offer a truly relaxing stay in the quiet of the countryside near quaint traditional villages and towns with Edinburgh only a 40 minute drive. Our cottages have been renovated with a nod to the past and plenty of modern touches so you can spoil yourself, whether it’s a soak in the double ended bath, a wee dram in front of the wood-burning stove or a glass of bubbles on the lawn. There is also a firepit in the woods beside the cottages so you can try your hand at getting the fire going to cook your meal, toast your marshmallows and while away the evening with chat and song.
Luxury Interiors, Wild Exteriors!
Carfrae Farm is a mixed arable family farm with traditional farm cottages renovated to luxury self-catering holiday cottages and outdoor activities run in the hills, woodlands & at the Danskine Loch. At the foot of the Lammermuir Hills and close to the wonderful beaches on the East Lothian coastline this is a quiet, countryside location with spectacular open, rural views, yet only a 40 minute drive East of Edinburgh, perfect for secluded cottage breaks.
Gather around a feast inside or outside sharing time with family or friends, cosy up in front of the wood burning stove or join in one of our activities. It’s also a great area for walking and cycling with scenic routes as far as the eye can see. The surrounding roads were used in 2017 and 2018 by the Iron Man Triathlon as part of the cycle route.
