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.

"Home from Home"

Warm Welcome with little extra's ( milk, tea, wine etc ). Everything you could possibly need.Large comfortable bedrooms. Well equipped kitchen. Patio furniture very useful on sunny evenings. Idea… More

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. All now working again! Hope the rest of your tour was a success and that we might tempt you back to explore the Borders again, kind regards, Sarah

"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...

We stayed at no 4 for 3 nights during half term week. The cotttage had a lovely feel to it and was spanking clean throughout. There were loads of games for the chidren to play with and the garden was… More

Many thanks for taking the time to review our cosy cottage. So glad you had a lovely time and that the games were a hit! Hope to see you back some, and would be pleased to offer you 2013 prices for 2013, until the end of this year, kindest regards, Sarah

"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

"Excellent, well-equipped cottage in a fine location"

My wife and I stayed with our 3 year old and 6 month old daughters in Sept 2012. This was an excellent cottage in a good location. It is excellently equipped, with all the necessary mod-coms. Modern, yet remains very homely, and with a real eye for detail. The layout is very good, especially for young children to run around in (but not to be disturbed by the tv when sleeping at night), largely on a ground floor level, but with a really cosy loft bedroom upstairs. My 3 year old loved playing with the great selection of games left by the owners, and my wife and I had everything we could ask for with books, TV & wi-fi internet, and some slightly larger jigsaws. Travelcot and highchair available for the babe too.

Parking in courtyard and a small separate garden for the kids to enjoy too. It's also right next to the Caddyman's restaurant for a good mix of fine-dining & pub food (squirrel balls anyone?!). It might be not far away from a main road, but actually it is extremely quiet and far enough a way to not be a problem for the kids.

The Scottish Borders is an excellent place for a stress-free family holiday. An infinite number of walks in very attractive countryside, close to the town of Jedburgh to pick up groceries (and order a good curry!), with lots of other close towns (e.g. Kelso) and a large Sainsbury's not too far away. A good selection of play-parks, animal parks, castles, cafes and craft villages also close by, and only a 1-2 hour drive to get to the City of Edinburgh

Excellent price and very friendly, helpful owners. Can't fault it in the slightest. I'm already being pestered by my little ladies to go back again very soon. And we will!

Many thanks for taking the time to post a review. We really do value your feedback and are delighted that the whole family had a great time, and that you felt that you'd had a holiday even quite close to home. Hope you can fit a trip to the Borders in to 2013, kind regards, Sarah and Tom

"Cosy and comfortable"

We arrived with the sun in the sky and found this very delightful cottage with gardens in bloom. We sat outside and enjoyed the country side. Although we could still here the traffic as the cottage … More

Many thanks for posting a review, and delighted you managed to enjoy the lovely garden during an unusual good spell of weather this summer! We intend to replace the mattresses in the twin room in the next few months, as well as adding an upholstered headboard so hopefully you will find this more comfortable if you return, and great to get feedback. And very importantly, Wifi going in this week! Kind regards, Sarah
