The accommodation at Ratho Farm consists of several old farm buildings, lovingly restored into boutique rooms. Equipped with modern features but still retaining elements of the original masonry and carpentry, the result is a beautiful fusion of old and new. Ratho Farm can accommodate singles, twins, as well as entire families or groups in adjoining rooms. Each room has an en suite, a fridge, as well as tea and coffee making facilities. We offer a special rate for 1 and 2 night group stays, or you are more than welcome to book individual rooms at your leisure.
