The Scottish Borders region
The landscape of the Scottish Borders covering an area of 1800 square miles is characterised by green rolling hills divided by beautiful river valleys, the most famous of which is the Tweed. The river runs right through the region for nearly 160km from its source above Tweedsmuir to the sea at Berwick-upon-Tweed. The section of the Tweed Valley stretching from Melrose to Peebles is where you will find a string of attractions from the ruins of Dryburgh and Melrose Abbey to the eccentricities of Sir Walter Scott's mansion at Abbotsford and the intriguing Jacobite past of Traquair House. Along with the towns of Selkirk and Galashiels these towns form the heart of the Borders region, whose turbulent history was, until the Act of Union characterised by endless clan warfare and Reivers raids. Consequently the area is strewn with ruined castles and keeps. This turbulent past is now remembered each year by the Common Ridings in June and July . Towns like Peebles and Selkirk hold celebrations normally lasting a week which include "ride-outs" where hundreds of locals ride horses around the burgh boundaries
Situated just 20 miles south of Edinburgh, the busy market town of Peebles provides the perfect base for exploring this historical and beautiful region. Its busy and eclectic high street provides a range of good shopping facilities and a weekly market. Nestled along side the shops you will find art galleries, cafes and award winning restaurants; a museum, swimming pool and the wonderful Eastgate Theatre converted from an old church at the end of the High Street. Opportunities abound for walking, fishing on the salmon-rich Tweed and golf at local courses in Peebles, Cardrona and Innerleithen. World class mountain biking and Go Ape is available at Glentress Forest, 2 miles away and the extreme 7-Stanes downhill run is just a few miles away in Traquair Forest outside Innerleithen. Sitting proudly on the hill outside Peebles, you can visit the 14th century Neidpath Castle once visited by Mary Queen of Scots and to the east of Peebles some five miles away in the small village of Traquair stands Traquair House, the oldest continuously inhabited house in Scotland. Peebles hosts food, mountain biking, arts and music festivals throughout the year including the Beltane which lasts an entire week in June and features the spectacle of hundreds of horses being ridden through the town and culminates with the colourful Crowning of The Beltane Queen on the steps of the parish church.
This charming terraced cottage is superbly located near to the heart of the beautiful town of Peebles on the Scottish Borders. Stylishly decorated throughout yet retaining a traditional cottage feel, this Peebles cottage is ideal for a couple or family wishing to explore this stunning part of Scotland. Set over three floors, this Peebles cottage has two first floor bedrooms – one double bedroom with an en-suite shower room and a twin bedroom, along with a bathroom. The ground floor at this Peebles cottage has a comfortable sitting room and a fitted kitchen with dining area and secure bike storage in the basement below whilst on the second floor there is a sitting room, which opens onto a decked roof terrace, from where you can admire splendid panoramic views over the town and hills beyond.

"A fabulous, welcoming home from home"
This house is lovely, and owner Lucy could not have been more helpful and welcoming. The house is central, and well equipped. The fantastic upper living room has a balcony and stunning views across the town and over the hills. The beds are comfortable, and the two bathrooms are of very high standard. Peebles is a charming town, with plenty of decent places to eat, nice walks and so on. The owners have provided plenty of brochures for visitors. I can thoroughly recommend this property and I am keen to stay again.....the ideal base for visiting the Borders and Edinburgh.
Many thanks for your positive comments. We have always loved living in and around Peebles and think it provides so many wonderful opportunities for visitors to the town. Looking forward to welcoming you back to Peebles soon.

"Really restful stay"
Really restful stay in Peebles. Very welcoming town and indeed area. The house really is a home from home. Loft room is certainly something special. Great communication and support from Lucy.
Local library is very accomodating with free internet use at the time we stayed and also late night opening. We enjoyed early evening drinks most nights at the Tontine (hotel) where the staff could not have been friendier, before the easy walk back to the house for dinner.
I would say however that the house has lots of pretty steep steps so may not be so good for those less mobile.
Many thanks for your positive comments. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and found the people of Peebles welcoming and friendly. You are not the only ones to enjoy pre-dinner drinks in the Tontine-their cocktails are also very popular with us locals! I take on board with your comments regarding the steep stairs to the rooftop terrace and sitting room and will double check that this is made clear in our property description. Hope to see you again for some further R&R.

"5 Stars arent enough!"
Everything about 63 Northgate is brilliant! Lucy, the owner, the property spread over 4 floors including the basement and rooftop sun lounge and terrace, the location, 2 minutes from Peebles High Street withits pubs and restaurants and things to do in the immediate area.
I was with my 2 sons on a golf and mountain bike holiday - we had golf at Peebles golf club and Cardrona within a 5 minutes drive and the amazing mountain bike trails in Glentress Forest only 2 miles up the road.
I cant recoomend this peoprty or Lucy highly enough!

"A last minute revelation"
Myself and partner have just returned home from a 3 night stay here. The house is lovely, furnished beautifully and has a roof terrace and top floor sitting room with great views. The house is in an ideal location and only a 5 minute walk from the main street.
Lucy, the owner was very accommodating, helpful and welcoming. All round 10 out of 10 and we will definitely return.
