The Bus Stop

Welcome to The Bus Stop, a unique accommodation experience on a luxury single decker bus.  Bespoke interior by Good with Wood (based on the farm). 

Set in the countryside of beautiful East Lothian, on an arable working farm.  It's a perfect getaway for couples and families wishing to explore the countryside and relax to the pace of rural life.  Friendly, relaxing and welcoming, our family help your family have a fabulous time.

We are only 50 minutes away from Edinburgh by car and by rail 15/20 minutes. There is ample car parking on site.

Your accommodation is set on a spacious, private grassed area with uninterrupted views of the Lammermuir Hills. There are plenty of walking opportunities on the farm and surrounding area, a lovely idyllic peaceful setting. Visit our pond, which is 10 minutes away from your accommodation. A bridge takes you across to a small island, perfect for a picnic.

A working farm, always something going on, tractor work, August-September is harvest time and you will see the combine in action. We have six exuberant Alpacas who will be as interested in you, as you in them. 

There is so much to do in East Lothian and we would be delighted to help make your holiday complete by helping with suggestions to any visitor attractions, restaurants etc. We could arrange a picnic at the pond, champagne & strawberries on arrival or a sunset BBQ, we like a challenge!
