Townhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6

The house was totally re-decorated & furnished in Nov 2012 and comprises:
On the top floor, the master bedroom with spacious ensuite showerroom.
- from your balcony, enjoy the views across the rooftops and steeples to the hills beyond while sipping a glass of wine in the evening sun. (see disclaimer)
On the first floor, a large twin bedroom, and a single bedroom (with additional guest bed).
- all our bedrooms have ample storage space in the form of wardrobes/cupboards and chest of drawers
- there's a hairdyrer and radio-alarm clock in each bedroom.
The generous family bathroom has an over-bath (Mira) shower.
On the ground floor you'll find a compact modern kitchen with electric oven & ceramic hob, washing machine, fridge (with freezer compartment), dishwasher and microwave.
- a comprehensive set of crockery, cutlery, pots and pans are included
- 4-slice toaster, plus tea and coffee pots

French doors lead directly out to the enclosed south-facing patio garden at the rear of the house.
- there is bench seating so you can enjoy the flowers and shrubs in this private sun trap.

There's also a convenient WC on the ground floor, and an under-stair cupboard off the lounge for all your coats and shoes etc.
- for the summer months, feel free to use the picnic hampers and cool-boxes for lazy lunches in the local parks, or whilst you tour the wonderful Borders scenery that surrounds you.
The lounge, twin and double bedrooms boast LCD TVs with Freeview and DVD players - there's a wide range of DVD / VHS films and CD music to choose from. We've also provided games, books and magazines should the weather turn inclement.

The Scottish Borders region
Located approximately 35km south of Edinburgh city centre (with the city by-pass even closer, providing links to Edinburgh Airport and the motorway network) makes this area an excellent choice to base yourself for a touring holiday in southern Scotland.
Add to this, formal and botanic gardens, stately homes and a rich history with ancient monuments and castles all on your doorstep ... there's plenty to keep you busy in the local area itself.
Whilst a car is not essential to enjoy Peebles and its own local attractions, it would be a shame to miss out on a tour of the wider Borders area and north to Edinburgh city itself. Car rental can be arranged on your behalf, or why not contact us and let us organise local tours for you. Tell us the sort of things you want to see and do - and we'll take care of the rest, whether it be sight-seeing, city shopping, walking, amazing beaches & coastlines, historical tours, golfing or botanical ... we'll lay on a great holiday for you!
The Royal Burgh of Peebles is a thriving market town straddling the world renowned river Tweed. The town boasts quality high-street shopping, supermarkets, and numerous leisure and recreational facilities including golf courses, art galleries, museums, a theatre, swimming pool and, more recently, some of the best dedicated mountain-biking venues in the UK. Peebles is renowned for its number and range of independent shops, attracting visitors and tourists from far and wide.
Horse riding, fishing and hill/walking are also very popular local activities. Peebles hosts each year an agricultural show, several road cycling events, and it's own cultural 'Beltane Festival' ... a festival of local legend, history and tradition with roots dating back many centuries.

Everything we needed apart from a good reading light in the lounge.also you need to be fit to climb 2 flights of stairs to ensuite bedroom - worth it for the spacious ensuite and the little balcony..We had lovely weather and were delighted to find picnic eqipment was provided.

"The best self-catering accommodation we have ever had"
This town-house was superb in location, furnishing, equipment, cleanliness and presentation. It was just a few minutes' walk from the town centre and the River Tweed. It has convenient off-street parking, a neat small rear patio and even a private balcony off the main bedroom. The owner is very helpful and friendly.
Being a town-house, it does have two flights of stairs which will not suit everybody.
It was a complete delight and we will look forward to returning
