“Thoroughly recommended”
Reviewed 7 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Gem of a cottage, beautifully furnished, all needs anticipated (clothes pegs to iPod adaptor). Blissfully secluded but easy to find. Good rail and road links to the cities. Delightful town of Linlithgow close by with excellent eateries. Thoroughly recommended.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed 29 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

This cottage is a real home from home. I was travelling on business and the cottage was perfect to come home and relax in after a long day at work.
The kitchen is fully equiped and the log burner adds a special touch.
My wife came to visit for a few days and did not want to go home!
Also the position is perfect, you have access to some fabulous sites and only a short drive from Edinburgh.
Definitely worth staying here.

Thank you for taking the time to write the review. I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday at the cottage, yes the woodburner is very popular ! We are fortunate that the surroundings are so peaceful at the steading. I hope that you will consider staying at Goose Cottage in the future.

“Relaxing haven.”
Reviewed 11 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Stayed here recently for a week and used as a base for the Fringe Festival. We were always so glad to get back to the peace and quiet of Goose Cottage after the hustle and bustle of the city.The cottage itself was very clean and had everything you needed.The homebaked scones on arrival and welcome pack were most welcome! The beds and pillows were so comfy too. The owner Lisa was on hand if we had had any probs but didn't need to trouble her. All in all I would highly recommend it .Thank you very much!

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 3 October 2011 for a stay in September 2011

This is definitely the cleanest holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. Off the beaten track but very convenient for exploring Edinburgh and its environs as it is fairly close to arterial roads and only 5 minutes from local train station.

We were greeted with a spotlessly clean cottage, a home baked cake for our stay (baked that day), a hospitality basket containing local produce and a comfortable bed with cotton bedlinen and lovely fluffy white towels. The cottage was quiet and comfortable and we slept like logs every night. It also has a small enclosed garden to the rear which would be very safe for children.

Lisa McAleese, the owner was very helpful and hospitable and we would recommend this cottage very highly - you will not be disappointed.
