On colder days enjoy the glow and warmth of the Scandinavian, wood burning stove. Underfloor heating beneath the solid oak flooring adds even more comfort. The open plan, contemporary kitchen area is equipped with every convenience needed to enable you to enjoy your stay.

During the sunny day time and warm evenings, you can enjoy al fresco living on the extensive, sheltered balcony decking which runs the full length of two sides of the cottage and has beautiful, clear, (safety) glass balustrade, allowing uninterrupted views from both inside the cottage and outside.
There is a further area of private, flower garden in front of the cottage and a generous parking and turning beyond, easily accessible from the public road. Even the views from the parking area are impressive!
The rental tariffs quoted are for two people, sharing.
The Scottish Borders region
The Scottish Borders is the land of ballads and legends, of the great writer, Sir Walter Scott and the poet James Hogg, the Ettrick Shepherd, a varied landscape both beautiful and wild, on the margins of Scotland and England from where generations of 'rievers' raided cattle from rivals in a lawless country known as the 'debatable lands' It is bounded by the rolling Cheviot Hills to the south, the Lammemuir and Moorfoot hIlls to the north, the Tweeddale hills to the West and, to the east, by the sea along the coast of Berwickshire. Edinburgh, the vibrant capital city is just beyond the region, to the north and can be reached from Melrose in less than an hour.

"A Lovely Little Gem"
A very well appointed cottage in the nice quiet village of Newstead. Views over the valley to the tweed although you cannot quite see the tween it is still a beautiful outlook. The cottage is comfor… More
Thank you very much for your thoughtful and positive comments. I would just like to make it clear, however, that the principal accommodation, i.e. living room, kitchen, bedroom and shower room, is all on the ground floor and eminently suitable for the elderly or people with access difficulties. It is only the additional mezzanine gallery area that is accessed by the staircase.

Amazing accomodation, very comfortable with everything you need & more. Ideal location too as only 10 - 15 min walk into Melrose where there is a great choice of places to eat & drink. fantastic cycling on the doorstep. It was also really nice to meet Robert the owner.
Amazing views, came straight home & went on the computer to book again for the summer but is sadly already booked. Have recommended to family & freinds who are now also looking to book.
Truly wonderful place.... looking forward to our next visit
