Our home

We offer a spacious renovated mining cottage on the edge of the small friendly village of Elphinstone. Downstairs we have a large kitchen diner, cosy lounge with a multifuel stove, and a cloakroom. Upstairs there are two big bedrooms, the bathroom and a further room which can be either a south facing second lounge, bedroom or childs nursery. Outside there is a small south facing garden which we hope to have built a barbeque in by the summer.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a family of four. I (Megan) am a youth worker although I am currently on maternity leave. My partner Lynn is a painter and decorator and we have 2 girls, Daisy (6) and Eve who was born just before christmas. We love to travel but find fitting holidays into the school term very restrictive so we would like to try a home swap to avoid ending up in a tourist trap. We are interested in travelling to Europe during the summer but would also like to swap around the UK during the October or February holidays.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The village we live in has a small shop and a pub. There are several walking trails connecting the local villages which are well used by dog walkers, cyclists and horse riders. It is very quiet here especially at night, however we are only a 25 minute drive from the centre of Edinburgh and close to the picturesque landscapes and beaches of East Lothian.
