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 as well as it's popular race course. 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. Mellerstain House is also only 3 miles away and is truly one of the great houses of Scotland, and well worth a visit during it's seasonal opening.
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.

We are following advice from the Scottish Government to minimise the risk of the spread of coronavirus. If preferred, I can leave your cottage unlocked for your arrival and you can phone me with any questions. We will leave instructions for the equipment in the cottage for you. I have purchased extra duvets and pillows so we can change duvets, pillows, mattress protectors (as well as bed linen and towels) between guests. We will carry out extra cleaning as per the very detailed protocol from the Scottish Government. I have completed the recommended cleaning/ disinfection training as recommended for holiday cottage cleaners. We will be closed for a night between guests, to let the cottage ’air’ and to allow me time to carry out the extra cleaning. This has already been blocked out. The laundry room with the washing machine and tumble drier, books and games will be closed to guests until we are advised otherwise. Please let me know if you would like to borrow a couple of specific games for the duration of your stay.
