Family-run self catering property, Williamstone Farm Steadings, is celebrating after achieving a 5-star grading from VisitScotland on the very first attempt.
Scotland's Golf Coast member, Williamstone Farm Steadings, located on the edge of North Berwick, received five stars from the national tourism organisation’s Quality Assurance (QA) Scheme in recognition of its exceptional standards. The QA Scheme is a benchmark for quality across the tourism industry and operates across accommodation, visitor attractions and food sectors.
Once a derelict set of buildings, Stephanie and Ryan Lothian bought the property in 2016 and took on the mammoth task of transforming the Barn, Byre and Bothy to their former glory, while also giving them a contemporary edge. After a lot of hard work, they were left with three beautiful properties, each offering their own individual luxury experience.
A perfect choice for visitors looking for top quality comfort and style, the accommodation is set within four acres of scenic East Lothian farmland.
Each property has three spacious, en-suite bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen/dining room with high quality appliances, a welcoming sitting room and scenic views.
Developed and improved for over 30 years, VisitScotland’s Quality Assurance Schemes are world-leading and provide a trusted, independent and impartial source of information for visitors. They allow businesses not just to meet visitor expectations, but to exceed them.
Stephanie Lothian, Owner of Williamstone Farm Steadings said: “We started consulting with VisitScotland very early during the renovations. VisitScotland’s advice and guidance was invaluable throughout the renovation process and it ensured we designed our holiday accommodation to the highest standard.
“This award allows our guests to immediately recognise the standard of our accommodation and provides assurance in quality during the booking process. Our association with VisitScotland is a key part of our business strategy as we move forward through 2018 and into 2019.”
Manuela Calchini, VisitScotland said: “It is fantastic to see that Williamstone Farm Steadings has achieved a 5-star grading. My sincere congratulations go to Stephanie and Ryan on this outstanding achievement and I wish them and their stunning properties continued success for the future.”
“Our Quality Assurance scheme helps businesses to reach their full potential and truly shine. The scheme is about more than just the ‘stars’ on the door - it’s about the entire visitor experience, about investing in your business and making it as sustainable as it can possibly be.”
