Description: "Tucked into a fold in the landscape near Gifford in East Lothian sits a collection of traditional farm buildings that were imaginatively restored to form an elegant family home. Broadwoodside steading is an exercise in polished vernacular, from the yellow limewash of its low, ogee-roofed tower to the oxblood paintwork around its many windows. This is a house that seems to grow out of its environment, the hue of its stone walls and pantiled roof echoed in the colours of the fertile soil of the surrounding farmland, and around the steading has grown up. It has been described as one of the finest contemporary gardens in Scotland, a garden that employs all the classical devices of symmetry, perspective and precise alignment but does so in such a witty fashion that here, in this agricultural setting, the familiar becomes fresh and exciting.” Garden Design Journal.
Directions: On the B6355 going out of Gifford towards Pencaitland, at the Golf Course junction.
