The Attic at Aikenhead House

The Attic is a cosy, two storey, self-contained cottage for 2 adults designed to help you relax and unwind – curling up by the wood burning stove or enjoying the rural views. It is also a great base for exploring and adventuring.

The Attic has a private wood burning hot tub. We provide enough logs for one night's use. You can bring your own extra logs or buy more from us. We will explain how to use the hot tub – it takes about 3 hours to be hot for use. 

We provide fresh baked sourdough bread, eggs from our chickens, butter milk, tea & coffee. Breakfast meat or BBQ meat bundles, cheese or antipasti board and picnic lunches are available upon request.

We are passionate about providing an eco-friendly experience for you – with organic and locally sourced products and food wherever possible.

The Attic is available from £125 per night with a minimum two-night stay. 

Please check Airbnb calendar for availability -

You can book directly through us or through Airbnb.

As the upstairs of the cottage is an attic with a pitched roof it is not ideal for those who are very tall! We can offer The Cottage at Aikenhead as an alternative. The staircase up to The Attic are steep so care needs to be taken when on the steps.

We are both more than happy to socialise - but equally can just be on call if needed.
Adam is based at the house. 
Rosie is a walk and cycle leader and is happy to organise activities for guests or give maps for adventures. We can also arrange kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, bike hire (road or mountain) and other local activities. 
We are developing an organic vegetable garden and planning to become as self-sufficient as possible and are happy to show you our plans and developments.


Dogs are welcome and can stay in The Attic or in the boot room downstairs. There is an additional charge for dogs of £20 per dog per stay.
We ask you to keep dogs off the furniture. A cage is available to use if requested.
Dogs MUST be kept on a lead outside as we have free range chickens and other animals.
We ask for dogs not to be left unattended in The Attic. 


Other things of note 

Wifi is available but please note that the signal may not be as quick as you may expect in the city and can dip in and out a bit.

A basket of firewood for The Attic stove is provided complimentary. Additional baskets of logs are £20 and buckets of kindling are £5.

The hot tub is wood fired and the first fire up is included. Additional fire ups are charged at £20.

We have modernised as much of this 200 year old building as possible, but please note that it will never be as warm as a modern building! 

Being in the country is fairly quiet but being a smallholding and surrounded by farmland, at certain times of the year there maybe noise from tractors especially during harvest. We are also very busy all year round, so you will see us at all times of the day working with the animals and in the vegetable garden. We try to be as quiet as possible when guests are around.
