Holiday property description
A charming pet friendly holiday cottage, one of three, converted from a former traditional farm building to provide holiday accommodation in a peaceful setting. The conversion has retained the character of the old building and also include the provision of superb conservatories to make the most of the location which overlooks the adjoining fields to the gentle rolling hills and countryside.
The Scottish Borders are steeped in history with a superb range of Abbeys, Castles and Country Houses to explore together with all the famous Borders Towns. Kelso is just minutes away offering an excellent range of independent shops, charming coffee & tearooms, restaurants and hotels. Floors Castle is also on the outskirts of Kelso and is well worth a visit to see the House, gardens and not to forget the Castle Kitchen Deli & Shop for delicious seasonal menus or treats of homemade produce to take away.
The area is also a mecca for outdoor pursuits many of which link to the historic sites. The cottage has easy access to walking routes including The Borders Abbeys Way which links the famous abbeys of Melrose, Dryburgh, Kelso and Jedburgh via a 68 mile route. The walk has been laid out with easily managed sections suitable either for a half day or full days walking. Fishing and golf opportunities are numerous as is cycling with routes along quiet side roads and byways, whilst strenuous mountain bikes are just 25 odd miles away with the Forestry Commissions' famous 7stanes trails at Glentress and Innerleithen. The woods and forests throughout the area make offer wonderful walks with the opportunity to enjoy the best of Scotland's wildlife including red squirrels, otters, kingfishers, curlews and many more.

Begrum Cottage Reviews
4 star reviewThe location is peaceful and relaxing and the cottage is clean, comfortable and spacious. We enjoyed exploring the area and all it has to offer.
The only down side of our holiday was an incident with the owners dogs. We had to visit the emergency vets when one of our dogs injured herself after being frightened by one of them. This dog was wandering around the site off lead unsupervised, even AFTER this incident, when the owner told us on arrival it was not friendly. Since returning home our dog has required further treatment causing more stress for us all.
I would thoroughly recommend the accommodation and the area but in my opinion, I do not believe this accommodation should be advertised as dog friendly.
