We are on the direct bus route to Edinburgh with local amenities including Public bars, restaurants,pharmacy, hairdressers, a local supermarket, takeaways restaurants( Indian, Chinese, Fish and Chips), a Post Office and a few other shops. There is a large shopping centre and a Designer Outlet in Livingston (12 mins. drive away), the Falkirk Wheel is 32 mins and the iconic Forth Bridges are only 20mins. The Wallace monument of Brave heart fame is 40 mins. away with the town of Stirling at its foot. Lots of local golf courses, leisure centres and places of interest for all the family. A great property to use as a base for exploring. It is so close to beautiful rural locations. It comprises of a fully fitted modern kitchen, living room with dining table, bathroom with a shower over the bath. Bedroom 1 has a King size bed, bedroom 2 is a small room with bunk beds in it, and the 3rd bedroom is on the second floor and has 2 singles that can be zipped together to form a super king size bed. This gives the option of a twin bed room. Just let us know which suits you best. There is a 32 inch TV with free-view service, a DVD player and WiFi. The property has been decorated to a high standard throughout. The back view from the lounge and kitchen is over gardens to mature trees and down to the stream. Saturday is the preferred changeover day, however, we do appreciate that this is not always suitable. Please just ask and where possible, we will try to be flexible. Short breaks of three days or more are also available. Departure time is 10.00am. Arrival time is preferably 3.00pm. Again, we will try to be flexible where reasonable requests are made taking into consideration time for changeover from other guests. The apartment has full central heating. Electricity and central heating up to £10 (over a period of a week) is included in the price. Any usage over this will be charged for. Use of linen and towels are also included. Ideal for bookings throughout the year. Families are welcome. More

There is something for all the family within easy reach of the property. There are ample leisure facilities nearby and lots of shopping areas.
