The Scottish Borders region
The Scottish Borders is steeped in history and is home to an abundance of castles, historic houses and ruined abbeys. The Borders Abbey Way suggests a circuit of the four grand abbeys, founded almost 900 years ago and the centrepiece to each Borders town. The Borders are famous for their sporting opportunities with many outdoor pursuits catered for. The climate is what you would expect for Scotland! Usually a fairly warm and sunny Spring to Summer, with temperatures in the high teens. Our Winters can be ferocious, with deep blankets of snow making for picturesque scenery and atmospheric Festive Seasons.
Peebles is a welcoming, quaint and picturesque town found in the northern part of the Scottish Borders. It is set amidst beautiful rolling countryside, with an eye opening amount of outdoor activities right on the doorstep. Mountain biking, fishing, hill walking and horse riding are all available within a few miles of the town and Ludgate House is a five minute walk to Peebles Golf Club.
The Peebles Beltane Festival is a festival of local legend, history and tradition, marking the return of summer with the lighting of fires. It is celebrated each year at the end of June with processions, riding out of the horses and a multitude of local events. The historic theme is strengthend by the close proximity of many castles and houses - Traquair House being only a ten minute drive away, a fairytale, turreted castle with magical woods and craft workshops to explore.

"Wonderful cottage - can recommend it highly enough"
A lovely, well appointed cottage within walking distance of the wonderful Peebles High Street. Stayed with my husband, my cousin and her husbane plus our two dogs. The owners make everything easy from booking your visit to the many thoughtful touches. Everything we wanted had been though of and provided - games, DVDs, the tasting cabinet, lots of books about the region and pamphlets helping us to decide what to do - even bags for collecting doggie poop. Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Peebles is a great base for exploring the Borders and is within easy reach of Edinburgh and Rosslyn Chapel to name a few. Ludgate House is well worth a visit and I don't doubt that we will visit again.

Hello, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. I would like to respond to the Internet issues; I totally agree the mobile reception is terrible for Three mobile and Vodafone, we find Tesco Mobile and certain others are fine. For any potential guests reading this, there are ways of getting online in Peebles without having to resort to going all the way to Edinburgh. The local library is roughly 6-7 minutes walk away and you can get online there for free, although obviously opening times are restricted. The Park Hotel, Tontine and Peebles Hydro all offer free BT wi-fi as well. I am sure there are other local high street places but I need to find out more myself!
