Description

Goose Cottage is a delightful terraced, converted stone steading, situated in the countryside within the heart of West Lothian. This is a fantastic location giving you wonderful countryside views, overlooking rolling fields but also with easy access to public transport and motorways to explore further afield. Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling are a half hour drive away and Perthshire can be reached within an hour. The cottage is attractively presented, with good attention to detail. The lounge has a leather sofa and two easy chairs. The lounge and kitchen are open plan and boasts a wood burning stove.  A picture window looks out into the west facing courtyard. The fully fitted kitchen is well equipped and from here there is access onto the private, fully enclosed east facing garden. From the garden you are looking out onto open countryside and on a clear day you can see Arthur’s Seat at Edinburgh. Both first floor bedrooms are beautifully coordinated and have coombed ceilings with velux windows. This lovely cottage sits in a quiet converted steading and is only a short drive from shops and eateries.
