The Scottish Borders region
The Scottish Borders is steeped in history and has the most beautiful, gently rolling, unspoiled landscape. Small towns characterise the region, each with its own unique history and heritage including 4 spectacular Abbeys in Jedburgh, Kelso, Melrose and Dryburgh, all within 20 minutes of the cottage.
The Cottage is also located on the walks St Cuthbert's Way, Borders Abbey Way, Deer Street. Common Riding festivals are held within each town during the summer months, with spectular mounted cavalcades passing along the historic high streets before galloping to the town boundaries.
Jedburgh is famous for its 12C Augustinian Abbey, as well as a Howard Reform Prison (Jedburgh Castle Jail) and Queen Mary's House, as well as a 18 hole golf course.
There are also some great restaurants (Clock Tower, Carters Rest, Glenbank's Auld Alliance) and a number of great indepentent retailers selling everything from handmade gifts to quality local meat. Jedburgh hosts rugby sevens in May (rugby ground within walking distance of the cottage) and its local festival in early July.

"Lovely cottage in an perfect location to explore the Scottish Borders"
We recently stayed at Number 4 and would thoroughly recommend it. The cottage was beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. When we arrived (it's easy to find with the clear instructions) we we… More
Hi there, thanks so much for your kind review and delighted you enjoyed your time in the Borders, and found the cottage to be well located for exploring. Yes, love the wood burner too, and starting to really come into the season for it now! Hope we can welcome you and you family back some time soon, kind regards, Sarah

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. Delighted we could help you with the extra bed and that you enjoyed your time in the Scottish Borders. You were lucky with the weather but so glad you found the cottage cosy, with the wood burning stove adding to that. The garden is a great asset and so glad you had the time to enjoy it, along with our game selection! Hope we can welcome you back some time in the future, kind regards, Sarah

Many thanks for your kind words and so glad you enjoyed your time in the cottage and took full advantage of the central Borders location! I also hope we might tempt you all back some time soon, and that the free wifi is enough of a draw for the teenagers! Also hope some of the walks were a success, even if the weather was a bit mixed- always the cosy wood burner to come back to. Kind regards and thanks again for taking the time to post the review, Sarah and Tom

"The cottage was beautiful, warm, clean and had everything we needed for a family of five."
I really recommend this cottage, modern and tastefully decorated, very clean and spacious, ideal for a family. It has a lovely patio where the sun shines until late, great for watching the kids play in the large garden with a glass of wine. Sarah was very helpful and welcoming. Price was amazingly low during May half term. We loved our stay.
Many thanks for taking the time to post your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay and that the kids did too. Lots to do in the area for kids in Jedburgh at at the nearby Harestanes visitor centre. We think the deck at the front is a real asset too, and yes, it's great to see the sun go down on it with a glass of wine. Hope we can welcome you back some time soon with the family, kindest regards, Sarah

Thank you so much for posting a review. It was lovely to meet you all and hope you enjoyed the Borders and your trips to Edinburgh. So sorry about the DVD player and hope our back up was okay.

"gorgeous cottages with fantastic facilities"
Stayed on the weekend of the 23rd November 2013 with a group of six girls. The cottage is of an excellent standard. Three large comfortable bedrooms, bathroom and toilet and a great equipped kitchen diner. The sitting room was so comfortable for everyone and had a log burner so extremely cosy. Would HIGHLY recommend this cottage! we ate at the restaurant next door so perfect location. Definitely be back...

"Ideal Holiday Home from Home"
We had a local family wedding during Easter fortnight and had quite a problem finding accommodation for just 3 days. (Most places asked for a 1 week booking), so thanks to Sarah's flexibility we were in. She also provided early access to allow us to get changed before our event, by prior arrangement and gave us taxi numbers (very reliable and on time) to take us from the cottage to the venue.
Set in the beautiful rolling Border countryside, the cottage is a gem. It's comfortable, spacious, immaculate and tastefully decorated with lots of homely touches. In addition a some goodies had been left in the kitchen to get us started and a supply of logs for the wood burner for our cozy nights in, a nice welcome!
The Scottish Borders is a lovely region to explore, stop and take in it's sights! The accommodation is a perfect base, with all the pretty Border towns in easy reach and an abundance of walks for all abilities, on it's doorstep. We loved it - think you will too!
Thanks so much for posting a review and for your kind words about our cottage, flexibility and the beautiful Borders. Hope you and the family will come back and explore again, with some warmer weather perhaps! Kind regards, Sarah

"Great place, wonderful host"
Often photos on a website are rather better than the real thing. Here it is even better! Everything is well thought out for easy living and the location is rural and idyllic.
Many thanks for your kind comments, glad you think the photos do the cottage justice- often difficult to capture the country cottage feel but the beams, doors and features do give the place a gret feel.Hope you might consider celebrating New Year again with us next year! (with new kitchen knives provided!!) Kindest regards, Sarah
