• About The Wheelhouse

    Nestled at the end of a secluded, private track and overlooking the beautiful River Avon, this lovingly restored, former watermill provides the ultimate romantic hideaway and features river views from the verandahs. The sights and sounds of the river as it gently flows over the rapids can be enjoyed from the luxury of your own outdoor hot tub or the two verandahs, one of which can be accessed from one of the double bedrooms – visitors can even try a little trout fishing. Historic Linlithgow’s many amenities are 4 miles; Edinburgh is a 25-mile drive, or by train (every 15 minutes) from Linlithgow.

    Enjoyed every minute, all though a secluded position was easy to find. Perfect centre for exploring the area . If going to Glasgow or Edinburgh park the car and take the train, a good and frequent service east or west, will definitely be back.

    The Wheelhouse is an absolute hidden gem right on the river! A beautiful, clean, comfortable cottage in a fantastic setting with the added bonus of a private hot tub which we certainly put to good use. Everything you need in the house and the owners couldn't be more helpful. A great location for Blair Drummond Safari park - about half an hour away, great value for money and well worth a visit for the day. The Scottish Owl Centre was also one of our visits for a flying display and educational talk with dozens of species of Owls on show - we hadn't heard of it but it was less than half an hous drive from The Wheelhouse. We also went to see the Kelpies and The Helix which were truly awesome and we had a short canal trip at The Falkirk Wheel, these both being only 15 minutes drive. Linlithgow has a canal and steam train and the cottage is just a short walk away from Birkhill Station through the woods - a real blast from the past - you feel like you have been rocketed back in time!! We ate with our two Grandchildren, several times at The West Port restaurant in town and also The Four Marys - food, prices and ambience excellent. We cannot recommend this property or it's owners highly enough, we had a fantastic time and haven't stopped singing the Wheelhouse's praises since we returned home few days ago. Absolutely perfect - one of our best holidays in the UK.

    Great cottage in a fantastic location. Owner very friendly and welcoming as were the neighbours. Having the river on the doorstep was great for the kids, plenty paddling and exploring and also did a bit fishing (caught some brown trout :-)). Hot tub very welcoming at the end of a busy day.
