Benfield Cottage, edge of Cheviots , free WiFi
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Benfield Cottage is a delightful character cottage with beamed ceiling and spiral staircase. Take a holiday in the beautiful Borders. Walk in the glorious green hills and mountains walked by the Romans and the reivers, enjoy coming back to the delightful welcome offered by Benfield's modern leather arm-chairs and footstools. Enjoy the original artworks on the walls and luxuriate in the big (but modern) bath after a meal prepared in the well-equipped kitchen or sit outside and try the barbecue.
The border abbeys are all close by - Kelso, Melrose, Jedburgh etc. but the roads are quiet and often narrow winding their way up remote valleys to tiny villages which still have lovely pubs and inns that demand a visit and offer good Border produce!
The grand houses of Abbotsford (Sir Walter Scott's home), Mellerstain, Floors, Paxton (home to part of the National Gallery) and others are easily reached and even Edinburgh is only about an hour away yet this is another world - one of great beauty and peace where your holiday home will be found to be comfortable, and convenient.

The Scottish Borders region
The Borders was the disputed area, to the north of the Cheviot Hills, which changed allegiance from Scotland to England and back constantly for hundreds of years. A rich, fertile area, it was settled in the middle ages by monks from the south who brought in sheep farming and wool weaving as an industry.
These monks have left the magnificent abbey ruins at Kelso, Melrose, Jedburgh, Sweetheart, Dryburgh and then there are the batlefield sites and the great houses at Abbotsford, Floors, Manderston, Mellerstain, and many others to explore to add to the dramatic beauty of the countryside, the pretty villages which characterise the region. The coast
Kelso is a riverside town of charm with many fine Georgian buildings around the market square. The former Cistercian abbey ruins lie next to the river Tweed which sweeps in grand manner around the town centre.
The Duke's house, Floors, is just across the river and Morebattle village is 10 minutes drive south.

"Great Center for touring Boarder Couties"
WE stayed for one week and found that we could have stayed longer we were fortunate with the weather. The cottage was superb well furnished , clean and suited our needs perfectly which was to have a base to tour around the boarders. The people in the village were very friendly and the local pub was fine with a reasonable but basic menu but the food and the ale was very good.
We agree that the Scottish Borders are a great area for history and beautiful countryside. Thanks for the warm comments about our cottage. Glad that you enjoyed your stay Christine
