Kennels Cottage By Eco Indigo Information

Description

Our two glamping pods are well appointed luxury spaces situated in deliberately slightly wild gardens with stunning views. Made in wood, they have underfloor heating ensuring a cosy warm space, a kitchenette, sitting/dining/sleeping areas - and an ensuite shower with flush toilet. The living areas face out onto open countryside, with fantastic vistas over fields, hills, and the north sea and Firth of Forth, including Bass Rock and the Isle of May. Outside is a patio area, a chimenea to sit around and keep warm whilst taking in one of the remarkable sunsets, and a BBQ. Whilst we are not able to take pets in the Pods, we can in the Kennels. The mid Victorian era Kennels have recently undergone a complete renovation, making them suitable for both humans and dogs. There are two bedrooms, one ensuite, as well as a kitchen/living room with wood burning stove. The underfloor heating keeps them cosy, like the Pods, and there are small garden areas to the front and sides, which were previously outside runs for the dogs. At some point, the Kennels were also a sheep pen - so in 2022 you would be amongst the first humans ever to occupy this building! The Pods and Kennels are about 150 metres apart (so a large family would be able to see each other easily, as well as having their own individual spaces), and there are walks into the lovely surrounding countryside immediately from the grounds. We do have some home produce from our smallholding which you are welcome to purchase when available - including eggs, pork, lamb, honey, and occasionally in season vegetables.

Hello from your hosts Lennox Webb and Clemency Shadbolt! We started this smallholding about 4 years ago, having largely changed careers from medicine and remain on a fascinating vertical learning curve. We have been so fortunate in that we have amazing friends and neighbours who have encouraged and helped us, and our aim is to share what knowledge we have gained with our guests - but equally, to allow folk to simply arrive, put their feet up, and enjoy the quiet sanctuary that this place offers.

Accessibility

Please contact us if you have any concerns regarding accessibility. We are very happy to help. The Kennels have a ramp to the front door, but the doorway is rather narrow. Internally, there is one small step, which we can easily provide a ramp for if required. There are no special facilities in the bathrooms at present

Directions

A car is recommended when staying at the property
  • Road from Edinburgh (30.0 miles)
    By car:
    The easiest approach is via the A1, which will take you to the outskirts of Dunbar. There is a roundabout which is signposted 'Spott', opposite ASDA, McDonalds and The Pine Martin Hotel. Head towards Spott - the road is a bit dark and winding, and once in Spott, drive through the Village, past the Village Hall with a flagpole on the right, and take the next left, signposted to Elmscleugh. If you drive out of the village, you have gone too far. Head up the hill - the road has a few sharp bends, first to the right, then left. After the sharp left turn at the top of the hill, continue along a straight patch until you see a farm track on the left, marked Spott Home Farm. Head down this track - just a warning, it is slightly rough, so drive slowly! - past a couple of pink cottages on your left until you come to a small crossroads. There will be a large shed in front of you to the left. Turn left at this junction, and you will find Keepers Cottage and Kennels on the right after passing a farm yard. The Kennels is the second building with black railings. For Bass Rock Pod and Belhaven Bay Pod, drive past Keepers Cottage and follow the track as it bears right. You will see the the Pods on your right as well as a small parking/drop off area. Belhaven Pod is the first Pod, Bass Rock the second - both are set back off the track.
    By bus:
    There are regular bus links to Dunbar, from where you will require a taxi to reach us.
