    Large enclosed garden with sitting-out area. 1½-acre natural grounds with lawned areas and orchard (shared with Braidwood Castle ref UK10672). Bike store. Private parking for 2 cars. No smoking. Please note: There is a fenced stream in the garden, 20 yards away.

    Set in the lovely Clyde Valley, this charming detached stone cottage lies within the enclosed, shared grounds of 500-year-old Braidwood Castle. The castle has been owned by the same family for 350 years, and was built around 1581 as a fortified tower to protect the Douglas family and neighbours from Border Reivers. The south-facing cottage was built as a bothy for the tower, and has been transformed into very comfortable accommodation for two people. The spacious living room has a cosy wood burner and there is a wet room, compact kitchen and a comfortable bedroom. Outside, there is a lawned area around the cottage with garden seating. The orchard and grounds are shared with guests at the castle. There is a soothing sound from the Braidwood Burn (fenced) just below the cottage, and there are walks down to the River Clyde through a network of paths nearby. The central location enables easy access to some wonderful countryside in the Clyde Valley Woodlands National Nature Reserve just north of Lanark, 5 miles, where there are way marked trails to explore. At the UNESCO New Lanark World Heritage Centre on the magnificent Falls of Clyde, you can discover how life was lived at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. Enjoy a day in Glasgow which is very easy by train from Carluke. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.
    Orchard Cottage at Braidwood Castle can be booked together with Braidwood Castle to accommodate up to 7 guests.

    Thank you for a lovely stay in Orchard Cottage! The cottage was ideal for us as a couple and our two dogs (they loved the warm fire and the space to run around!) . The location was central to lots of local attractions if you're an outdoorsy person-easy drive to Glasgow too if that's what you're into. Such a peaceful location and lovely owners who were quick to point us in the direction of heating and firewood when the weather turned a bit colder. Lovely touches when we arrived too with a hamper of goodies and beautifully clean and tidy cottage. The bedroom is a little tired but all part of the character and was still very cosy. Kitchen was well-equipped for straightforward cooking. Would recommend a sofa for the living room as it would be nice to properly relax. Would highly recommend this lovely, peaceful and private cottage for couples. Thanks again!

    Lovely cosy cottage in amazing grounds of the small castle. We received a fantastic welcome pack which had everything you needed for breakfast and snacks, as well as a bottle of wine. We hope to return for another visit soon.

    The Cottage is simply delightful. My partner and I had been planning this getaway for quite sometime, and The Cottage proved to be the best choice we could have made. It is beautifully renovated, comfortable, tastefully furnished, with beautiful light coming in during the day, and a warm atmosphere at night. If you are looking for a relaxing stay, away from it all, but not completely off the grid and with access to shops - this is the place for you. Plenty of hikes in the area and many things to see. Finally, the owner left a little welcome hamper for us as well as preparing a spotlessly clean property for our arrival. I could not recommend The Orchard Cottage more warmly!!
