Luxury holiday houses sleeping 22 with a games room, for multi-generational family get togethers near Earlston

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Steading, Legerwood, Scottish Borders, Scotland, sleeps 4-22 in 11 bedrooms.

The Steading is a large exclusive use property sleeping 18 adults (+2 children on sofa beds) on our farm, Legerwood.

The ground floor has a boot room, games room, bathroom, drying room and laundry facilities. Stairs then go up to the open plan kitchen, living and dining area, with the first bedroom corridor on the same level leading to 5 of the 9 en suite bedrooms.

The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering, with a large double oven Rangemaster with induction hob, large fridge with freezer drawers below as well as a separate wine fridge. There is also a dishwasher and all the cutlery, crockery and glassware required for up to 24 people.

Down a couple of steps off the kitchen area is a second, more cosy living room with comfy sofas and a wood burning stove. Upstairs from there is the second bedroom corridor which has 3 more en suite bedrooms to the right, including our family-sized room which has a single sofa bed for a child, plus space for a travel cot as well. The Master Suite to the left has a bedroom, family sized bathroom and another small room perfect for a baby or child to sleep in a cot or on the single sofa bed.

Large doors off the open plan area go onto the raised decking into the garden, with 3 steps down onto the grass. The garden has fruit trees and bushes, as well as a herb garden which guests are welcome to pick from when in season.

Dogs are very welcome and we have heated kennels for them, or for a charge, 2 clean, well-behaved dogs may come inside.

*Please note we are not a party house. Any events or celebrations must be clearly stated at time of booking and approved by us. Please ask to see our T&Cs for more information.*

We also have a 2 bedroom cottage, Mrs Moll's Cottage, which sleeps 4 and can be taken in addition to The Steading if more bedrooms are required. Please enquire for details, or indeed if you would like prices for the 8 bedroom Steading if you do not require the Master Suite. In quieter months, we may be able to offer smaller groups just half of the property (The Mixing House) which sleeps 10. Please enquire for details.

Legerwood is situated between Lauder (to the north) and Earlston (to the south) on the A68. Both have plenty of shops and amenities, and take 5 to 10 minutes to travel there.
The Co-op in Earlston is the nearest mini-supermarket, located in the JET petrol station. On the main A68 road and takes less than 10 minutes to drive there.
