The Scottish Borders region
Whatever you are looking for The Scottish Border's takes some beating. The hills and rivers range from the majestic to the tame and have inspired artists and writers such as Walter Scott and James Hogg (otherwise known as the Ettrick Shepherd). Those same hills are a walker's or mountain biker's dream. Why not venture along part of the Southern Upland or St Cuthbert's Way or explore the 7Stanes Mountain bike trails?
Innerleithen is the ideal base for exploring the Borders. Peebles, Melrose and Moffat are just a few of the small towns within easy reach. All have their own unique style, and you will find a range of interesting shops, museums and coffee shops in each place. If visiting stately homes is your bag then you will be pleased to know that you can fill your days with trips to the Bowhill Estate, Abbotsford (home of Walter Scott) , Mellerstane House and Thirlestane.
Have a day out in Edinburgh while you're here. It is on a direct bus route from Innerleithen, or a 50 minute drive away.
There is so much to do you can't possibly get bored in the Borders.
Surrounded by outstanding countryside, and located on the river Tweed, Innerleithen caters exceptionally well for holiday-makers. On Cosaig's doorstep you will find not only a selection of interesting shops, friendly pubs and small restaurants, but also tourist attractions such as Traquair House, the National Trust's Robert Smail's Printing Works and St. Ronan's Wells.
For the more active there is a multitude of lovely local walks and bike rides. Indeed Innerleithen is famous for it's downhill track which is one of the 7stanes mountain bike trails. Very nearly complete is a new all-purpose path which will link Innerleithen, Cardrona and Peebles, and which will take you to Glentress, another huge draw for mountain bikers. Glentress is also the home of a new Go-Ape tree top adventure course. If you are fond of swimming, both Peebles and nearby Galashiels have swimming pools. Peebles Hydro hotel also runs Day Spa breaks.
The Scottish Border's towns are renowned for their summer festivals, and Innerleithen is no exception, boasting the oldest organised sports meeting in Scotland. St Ronan's Games Week is really a misnomer with activities for people of all ages spreading over 10 days. Innerleithen knows how to party! Other annual treats include the Traquair Fair and many mountain biking events.

"Fantastic cottage in superb location"
Very comfortable, well equipped cottage with everything you need to make it feel a real home from home experience. The owner is very helpful in terms of all the information beforehand and in helping plan your visit and thoughtful in providing really personal touches like the welcome pack, flowers and fruit. The linen is fresh and beds very comfortable. The cottage is set in the heart of the village with interesting shops and pubs. It was our first visit to the Scottish Boarders and we were immensely impressed with how friendly everyone was and the wonderful scenery and great cycling and we are already planning our next trip!
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and are always glad to have another convert to the beauty and friendliness of the lovely Tweed Valley! If you return in the future you will be able to take advantage of the new railway line (opening Sept 2015). The cycle from the station to Cosaig along the Granites road is simply stunning. Thanks once again, Jennifer

"Wonderful house in Innerleithen"
Stayed here in May 2015 with 2 adults 2 children and 2 dogs and the owners couldn't have been more helpful. My son was mountain biking in Tweedlove and he was impressed with the wall mounted rack to clean and maintain his bike in the back garden. If you are coming with dogs they provide blankets bowls and dog towels. All in all the most well equipped house we have stayed in. Thank you Jennifer.
Very happy to receive such a lovely review. Thank you so much :-D I do hope we will be able to welcome you back to the Tweed Valley very soon. Best Wishes, Jennifer

"warm welcoming cottage"
Excellent small cottage in the centre of Innerliethen that can sleep up to 6 people. Only a few minuets from the downhill trais. Good bike storing and washing facilities.
We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Glad the bike wash went down well...think it was probably needed after a day on the trails! We very much hope we can welcome you all back another time. Thank you so much for leaving a review. It's much appreciated Jennifer :-D

"Lovely holiday cottage in the Borders"
Cosaig is a wee gem of a holiday cottage, you feel at home straight away it's clean, comfortable and has extra special touches such as the welcome basket something you would expect of a five star hotel. There's a lot of thought gone into providing everything a family would need on holiday and more. It's dog friendly which you do feel as there are towels, throws, bowls and toys provided. A great walk straight from the front door around the park, and a lovely courtyard at the back. We spoiled ourselves by ordering a meal the first night this was such a treat after travelling we just had to heat it up and relax with a glass of wine. I'll certainly be back for another stay.
Thank you so much for the lovely review. I'm so pleased that you felt at home and want to come back....we will be delighted if you do!We do love dogs so I'm glad you felt our cottage was welcoming to your four legged friend too. Thanks again, Jennifer

"A Hidden gem in the Scottish Borders"
This cottage is a wonderful place to have a relaxing break, everything you need is here, so cosy and comfortable, looks over the park to the hills just waiting to be explored. It is so peaceful hearing the birdsong, and in the distance the rippling waters of the River Tweed with fishermen dotted along its banks
We are delighted that you had a relaxing break. A huge thank you one again for your kind comments here and in our guest book. We very much hope that you do return!

"Super, dog-friendly cottage"
Cosaig was warm and welcoming when we arrived on a cold January evening. We found a super welcome pack of milk, butter, bread, eggs, tea, coffee, juice and wine with extras of home-made flapjack, dog biscuits and the ingredients for a Burns supper including haggis, neeps and tatties with a nip of whiskey too! The cottage was well equipped with everything we needed and the beds were the most comfortable we have slept in. The bunk beds were big enough and comfortable for an adult to sleep in with no problem. There was a small enclosed garden, but the park was across the road, just as you stepped out of the door. We could park the car directly outside the front door. The cottage was very dog friendly and we would recommend it for holidays in this lovely area.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at Cosaig. We're always pleased to hear that our guests (human and canine!) have enjoyed their stay, and we very much hope that we can welcome you back soon. Best Wishes, Jennifer
