Cauldside West Cottage is accessed by a rough track and is tastefully furnished, cosy and warm with gas central heating and a wood burner with logs supplied. It has an enclosed garden with great views of the surrounding country side where both roe and fallow deer are regular visitors, and an outdoor shed for bike storage. Smeaton Estate is a working farm of 450 acres, which is owned and run by the Gray family who live nearby, they have carefully maintained and preserved the natural beauty of the estate as well as working the land. You can enjoy glimpses of farm life from the cottage, which includes a large garden nursery, horses and Highland cows. Adjacent to the cottage are the grounds of the old mansion house with parkland, a lake and arboretum which is part of the National Tree Collection of Scotland. There is also an award winning tearoom, serving home baked cakes on the estate if you fancy a treat!
The peaceful village of East Linton, about a mile away, is within walking distance of the cottage and has several local amenities including two pubs (both serving food), a café, a supermarket with cash machine, local butcher and a chemist. There are two National Trust for Scotland attractions in the village, Phantassie Doocot and Preston Mill, which are well worth a look. Just some 6 miles’ drive away is Dunbar, with a traditional high street with a local baker, fishmonger and butcher as well as supermarkets, local shops and galleries and eateries. The town has a picturesque working harbour where you can watch daily activities and the local boats unloading their catch. It is also home to the beaches of the coastal John Muir Country Park.
Other nearby towns are Haddington, Belhaven and North Berwick, all roughly about 6 to 7 miles away, they all have a good range of local shops, pubs and restaurants. The village of Belhaven is well known for its brewery, which is the oldest working brewery in Scotland, offering tours and sampling, as does the nearby Glenkinchie Whisky Distillery where you can see how Scotland’s national drink is made. For a day out, the capital city of Edinburgh is only 25 miles away and there is a regular train service from Dunbar or Drem to the city centre, taking only 20 minutes, so you can enjoy the city without having to look for a parking space!
