    Mousebank sleeping up to 4 guests

    Forth 1 mile. Lovely detached holiday home on a quiet road opening to the countryside surrounding the village of Forth, near Lanark in central Scotland. Fully refurbished and offering quality accommodation, this cottage is a great place for couples or families to use as a base while exploring this part of the country. All ground floor, with three steps up to the front door and steps down from the metal balcony in the rear garden, this holiday home offers flexible accommodation for up to four people. There is a super king-size double bedroom and a second room that has twin bed, (no zip/link). The kitchen has a dining table while the spacious sitting room also has a dining area as well as views across the garden to the trees as the ground slopes down to the Mousewater Burn. The sliding doors open onto a metal balcony which leads down to a garden and patio area. Walk or cycle from your front door and explore the former Wilsontown Ironworks site, now converted into attractive woodlands with a variety of trails and guided walks to the settlement where many workers used to live and work the mines. There are other cycle trails in nearby Fauldhouse and the famous Glentress cycle trails are less than an hour away. Visit the World Heritage Site of the former 18th century cotton mill at New Lanark and discover why Robert Owen is renowned as a social reformer by developing social and welfare programmes and transforming the lives of the workers living in the planned village alongside the mill. Why not spend a day in Glasgow or Edinburgh or tour the beautiful Borders only a short car journey away through stunning scenery? A lovely holiday home with many attractions within easy reach, whatever the season.

    The village of Forth lies at 1000 feet above sea level and is near the bustling market town of Lanark in South Lanarkshire. The name is believed to come from the phrase ‘the open air’. Beginning life as a town of handloom weavers, Forth soon developed as ironstone, limestone and mining trades took over and it became known predominantly as a mining village. The traditional crowning of the Queen of the Heather still takes place at the annual gala day.

    Mr Ogden – 1 May 2018
    "The devil is always in the detail and all the details were right. Everything you might want is there. I have spent considerably on "Gold" lets that did not meet the standard of this one."
    Ms Reddy – 1 May 2018
    "Spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and with everything you could possibly need and so much more. I would recommend S76830 to anyone who want peace, quiet and yet a little bit of home luxury."
    Mr Hanglin – 1 Nov 2017
    "I honestly could find nothing to complain about. The owners were very nice and the people around were friendly. The property would have been ok in any weather. It was warm and cosy. Dog walks were from the door and the Wilsontown Ironworks world heritage site was only yards away. The back garden was a treat with the birds,squirrels and mousewater flowing past. Proberly the most relaxing week we have had"

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at S76830. The house was fully equipped and exceptional in everyway. The visitors comfort seems to be the most important factor by the lovely owners. There was plenty to do and see in the surrounding area being close to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Sterling and Lanark. The house is in a quiet location and the locals were all very friendly. There was some wonderful wildlife in the area and plenty of dog walks too. We would thoroughly recommend S76830 and would not hesitate to visit again."
