We stayed for 2 nights in July and were very pleased with the accommodation. We were made to feel welcome from the start and were given a lovely welcome pack which was a nice touch. The lodge is very private within the grounds of the owners house and it is great for children as there is lots of space to run around and there is even a large trampoline which my 3 yr old loved. The cottage is clean and well kitted out with most things you need and has free wireless broadband which comes in handy to check out bus times into Edinburgh etc. The bus takes around 30 - 45 minutes to get into the Edinburgh city centre which is fine and Tranent is just off the A1 so is handy for commuting. Would recommend the cottage to anyone who wants a private, clean cottage, close to Edinburgh and the surrounding area.

We booked this as a bit of a last minute thing, to get away for a few days with the dog. From the minute I booked it, the level of service Jemma offered was brilliant. So happy to help. Even though Jemma ended up being out the country while we were there, she still text to make sure we had arrived ok and had everything we needed.
The cottage was lovely- nice and fresh and even though it was a cottage, there was still lots of space. There were essentials provided like bread, milk, eggs etc- this was a nice touch.
We were looking for somewhere that allowed pets and the main attraction for booking this cottage was the walled in garden. It was gorgeous. We got very lucky with the weather and ended up taking advantage of the garden for the 3 days we were there and just spent the day lying out. The dog loved it. There was so much space for her to run around, she was in her element.
The area was nice. There is a nice park just a few minutes away from the cottage and we took the dog there every morning. You can easily walk into town and there are lots of wee shops, pubs and takeaway places. The only thing we struggled with was finding a restaurant to sit in and eat. We went to Costello's on the our second night there and it was very nice.
A very nice, relaxing time was had by all- especially the dog!
