A cottage within the grounds of Scottish War Blinded's Linburn Centre is the most vision impairment-friendly holiday home in the UK. Holiday Cottage exterior

The Cottage is available to let for breaks of up to 2 weeks at a time, for Scottish War Blinded members and their families.

A fully accessible three bedroom house in a peaceful semi-rural setting, it is a wonderful location for a relaxing holiday, close to the buzz of Edinburgh and near to shopping hubs. Furnished and equipped to a high standard, it will offer a luxurious self-catering experience in the beautiful surrounds of the Linburn Estate.

With all the accommodation on one level, the cottage has been recently renovated to offer easy access for visitors who are less mobile. Members will be able to relax in the secure garden, which suits a guide dog - or explore the extensive grounds of the estate and beyond. Holiday Cottage Dining Room

Staying at the cottage is a fantastic opportunity for veterans to access the social activities and resources at the Linburn Centre, either for a few days or for up to two weeks.

Sports such as archery and shooting, creative pursuits such as painting, woodwork and I.T training and one-to-one rehabilitation are on offer.

Members will be able to enjoy lunch at the centre during their stay. 

The cottage costs a nominal £120 per week for up to 5 people to stay.

The cottage has 1 double bedroom, 1 single and a twin bedroom, and an accessible wet room bathroom. A spacious well-equipped kitchen, and a large living and dining room complete the fully accessible wheelchair accommodation. The living room looks out onto a large garden. Assistance dogs are most welcome. The cottage is in a semi-rural location with no shops within walking distance, so own transport is highly advisable. 

Our members and their families are able to enquire about booking the cottage and find out its availability, by speaking to any of our team in person or by calling 0800 035 6409.
