This is a great property I would recommend it to anyone. Everything is just as discribed. The owners of the property are great with nice suggestions on things to do in the area. The history of the property is pretty interesting. Be sure to allow time to walk around the property. Everything is modern and clean inside. I would suggest making sure and ask how the showers work, they are a little different to get started than normal.
Thank so much, this was a very nice and helpful comment!
Our Stay at Luffness Historic Castle Grounds
This historic cottage was a real treat! I recommend reading the history of the cottage prior to your visit it will make it even more special. The Hopes were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. To see the castle grounds and experience Edinburgh was a life experience we will never forget. The home had all the necessities needed and pictures were as described. It was easy for my legally blind husband to navigate around in as it is on one level. Thank you for providing this lovely cottage for our stay in Scotland.
My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Luffness cottage immensely! I highly recommend this property. It was beautiful and relaxing; just close enough to Edinburgh, yet secluded out in the country.
Clean, Beautiful property
A lovely cottage on beautiful grounds
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. There was plenty of space with everything we needed. Mrs Hope and company were very welcoming and attentive hosts. The location is excellent for a walk in the nature reserve or for local villages. We would stay again.
That was a very kind review. We thoroughly enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you back again.
With kind regards.
Perfect Cottage with tranquility and more!
Having to please five family members on a vacation can be a task, but this cottage pleased everyone and exceeded all expectations! My youngest daughter didn’t want to leave and is still talking about the beautiful roses, castle and favorite summer cottage for tea! Her follow on to London left her comparing Hampton Court to Luffness and she preferred Luffness. 😊 The owners went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and have a memorable time in Scotland and their home. My family will have fond memories and cherish them always. Thank you so much for everything. I will definitely return here if ever in Scotland.
Perfect for families and couples, The town co-op has everything you’ll need and the people are all wonderful and kind.
