The perfect rural bolthole for couples and solo travellers set in extensive groups.
The meticulously executed renovation includes sleek polished concrete floors and exposed stone and tulipwood walls alongside bold paint colours by Craig & Rose, William Morris wallpaper, Philippe Starck light fittings and bespoke light sculptures.
The full-height open-plan living area features local Chippendale-school Windsor chairs, artisanal hemlock log side tables, a hand-crafted Oak kitchen and quality appliances including an AGA oven. A fabulous welcome pack of local goodies awaits guests on arrival.
In the bedroom, a sumptuous Harrison Spinks bed is dressed with hypoallergenic vegan down duvets and pillows from the Fine Bedding Company along with high-quality cotton bed linen and towels. The bathroom has a powerful shower, heated mirror, underfloor heating and Heritage fittings. Guests are provided with vegan Moo & Yoo guest amenities.
In addition to the private terrace accessed from the living area with seating for two, guests have shared use of the wider grounds with others staying at The Steading. There’s a large paddock for rounders, football, picnics or a sunrise Yoga session taking in views to nearby Traprain Law, a volcanic intrusion and the site of a Stone Age fort. A firepit and log seating area sits beneath the mystical ruins of the ancient Papple Convent – recorded in 1458 - ideal for marshmallow toasting and campfire singalongs.
