Scottish staycation destination underfloor warmth

A new self-catering holiday cottage at the 700-year-old Brucefield Estate in Clackmannanshire in Scotland has been hailed as “magic retreat”.

From its population of little frogs to a uniquely shaped rock called the Witch’s Stone, the estate has much to offer guests seeking an enchanting getaway. Now, a new cottage called “Slackbrae” has been added to the estate’s offering and comes complete with luxury underfloor heating. The innovative heating solution ramps up modern comfort levels within the cottage once used by foresters.

Like many homes in the nearby village of Culross, the cottage is painted a warm shade of custard yellow. Sustainable materials have been used to insulate and refurbish the residence, which dates back to the 18th century. It has two bathrooms and two bedrooms, making it ideal for both family and friends to holiday in.

The cottage was originally owned by the Stirling and Dunfermline Railway, and it enjoys an abundance of natural light. Along with warmth underfoot from the underfloor heating system, the property also has a wood-burning stove. Cast in ceramic, the stove features a unique design that burns logs from the top down, making them last for many hours.

There are back and front gardens to the cottage. Guests seeking to create spellbinding recipes will find fresh ingredients nearby, with herbs been planted for the use by those staying.

While old-world charm is readily found in the beautiful surrounding woodland, the cottage’s interior is exceptionally chic, offering guests a luxe experience in the wilds of Scotland.
