The Space Barleydean Suite is a ground floor private suite within our house in the country. The house is a converted dairy house, rebuilt to an exceptional standard in 2008, and the suite is located in one of the wings with its own private entrance. It is situated at the edge of the Pentland Hills in Midlothian, close to Roslin (home to Dolly the sheep!), Penicuik (an old mill and mining town) and 8 miles away from Edinbugh centre. Barleydean Suite is the perfect base for exploring the countryside, including Pentland Hills, Roslin Glen Country Park and Glencorse Reservoir.

The suite has been recently redecorated in neutral tones to a high standard, with good quality furnishings including a superking-sized bed, king-sized sofa bed, table and chairs, TV, wifi, luxury bathroom with bath and double shower, Nespresso coffee machine, microwave, kettle and fridge. There is a separate room where there is a kitchenette and a large wardrobe. This room can hold a couple of cots, if you prefer your children to sleep in a separate room. We can provide a travel cot (0-1 year olds) and/or a cot-bed (2-5 year olds) should you require these. Guest Access You will have access to the guest suite of our house. The suite has its own private front door, a large main bedroom, a kitchenette/storage area and a large luxury bathroom. The suite is locked off from the main part of the house, so you will have privacy to come and go and feel secure in your own part of the house. Your hosts We are a family of 4 - Richard and Inga and our two young children. We will usually be around when you are staying and on hand to answer any questions you have. However, if you prefer your privacy we will leave you alone to enjoy your break! We will provide a booklet detailing how everything works and hints and tips for exploring the local area. Getting Around Barleydean is in the countryside with access to some lovely walks right from the front door. There is a pub 5-10 minutes walk away and a bus stop 15 minutes walk away. The bus can take you to Edinburgh centre, local towns and the retail park. However, we recommend that you have a car during your stay here. More

My mother booked this accommodation for my family for 4th - 8th October. It's a very quiet country location, located on the outskirts of Penicuik. Obviously the owners have spent considerable time and money in renovating what is obviously a previous farm building. Heating was...More

About the neighbourhood
Barleydean suite is located in a safe, peaceful area, with mainly horses, cows and sheep for neighbours! You may also see deer wandering around the the nearby fields.
How to get there
Most sat navs find Barleydean using the postcode EH26 0NQ. The house is off Belwood Road. Barleydean is on a private road and unfortunately not particularly well sign-posted if you are not using sat nav. If you are arriving from the A702 (heading south from Edinburgh or the airport), the road is immediately on the left after the Flotterstone Inn. Follow the track around and Barleydean is second house on the right. If you are arriving from the A701 (heading south), turn onto Belwood Road and shortly after the national speed limit sign, turn right onto the private road. There is a white sign that says “Private road: service access to houses only”. Follow the track until it bears left and Barleydean is first on the left.
