Holiday cottages can be booked for a minimum of 3 days and are ideal not just for holidays, but for a place to stay during house restorations, moving house or extended families to spend Christmas or Easter in. Weekly lettings are typically Saturday to Saturday, however we can be more flexible if a shorter let is required during the quieter times of the year.

Check-in is available from 4pm (please do ask if you require early check-in) and we request that guests check out by 10am on the day of departure.

Dogs are welcome for a small extra charge and will enjoy the fabulous walking around Swanston Farm and the surrounding Pentland Hills.

“I started taking my family holiday at Swanston Farm Holiday Cottages in 2007 and now come every year. Our annual pilgrimage has expanded to our extended family and we now take 3 cottages between us and 3 generations of family, including children and dogs, descend on Swanston for a week in the summer.”

“The cottages are all beautifully clean, cosy and warm and have all the facilities you would need to cater for a family holiday. Fantastic walking over the hills and with Swanston Brasserie and the golf course on the doorstep, we regularly spend an entire day on the Farm without the need to venture in to Edinburgh.”
