Morven Cottage is a traditional whinstone cottage in the heart of the bustling Borders town of Peebles. Flanking the River Tweed, and surrounded by rolling hills, Peebles is the perfect location for a relaxing break. The town is ideal for families, with plenty of activities for all age groups. It is a wonderful place for outdoors enthusiasts, with walking, running, cycling and mountainbiking facilities on the doorstep. For those interested in the arts, there are regular shows and events at the Eastgate Theatre, and an annual Shakespeare promenade play at nearby Traquair House. The annual Beltane festival, in late June, is a sight worth seeing!

Although it has many original features, Morven Cottage is fully equipped for modern family living. The whole house has been refurbished to a very high standard; we want guests to feel at home here. There are three bedrooms* (double, twin and single) as well as a sofa bed in the second sitting room. The main lounge has a cosy woodburning stove and working wooden shutters. The bright and airy kitchen at the back of the house is perfect for family dining; open up the patio doors and wander into the private, enclosed garden for barbecues and al fresco aperitifs. The cottage has a bathroom with shower, plus a separate WC. The utility room is great for washing muddy boots. Outside we have a secure shed for bikes, with bike-washing facilities. Added touches like Wi-fi and ipod dock mean you can enjoy all your usual home comforts and keep in touch.

About this location

The Scottish Borders region

Covering about eighteen hundred square miles, the Scottish Borders stretches from the rolling hills and moorland in the west, through gentler valleys to the high agricultural plains of the east, and on to the rocky Berwickshire coastline with its secluded coves and picturesque fishing villages.

In the bright spring months, fresh new growth fills the valleys and forests of the Scottish Borders. Enjoy time to spare with the lure of lighter longer summer days or relax in more mellow shades of autumn when mauves and purples tint the moors. Crunch through the crisp frosts of winter, when early morning mist floats over the lowlands, and the snow capped hills sparkle in the distance. Land and sea, hills and moorland all sit happily side by side. Rivers and paths wind their way through untouched natural beauty whilst the more gentle pace of life subtly relaxes and revives you. Seasonal changes await to delight, every day at every turn.


'Peebles for Pleasure' is what the locals say and it's easy to see why! Peebles offers plenty of ways to enjoy the great outdoors with a variety of leisure activities. Golf, fishing, mountain biking and walking are popular pursuits, with the Forests of Tweeddale and the challenging Southern Upland Way easily accessible. For mountainbikers of all levels, Glentress Forest offers the first courses in Scotland designed by enthusiasts using a colour-graded scheme like ski runs. For more experienced bikers, the Traquair XC run at nearby Innerleithen is renowned for fast and very technical riding.

Innerleithen is also home to Traquair, Scotland's oldest continually inhabited house and is surrounded by the scenic hills and forest of the Tweed Valley, also St. Ronan's Well Interpretative Centre depicts the era of the last century when the town was famed as a spa. Robert Smail's Printing Works give a fascinating insight into the printing processes of the past.

Neidpath Castle sits atop its lofty vantage point over the River Tweed on the edge of Peebles, an easy and picturesque stroll away from the bustling town.

Gardening fans are well placed to enjoy a visit to Dawyck, one of the National Botanic Gardens of Scotland, at Stobo, or Kailzie Gardens with its formal walled garden, stocked trout pond and 18-hole putting green. Peebles' spacious High Street offers interesting boutiques and welcoming tearooms for a spot of shopping, then round off the day with a visit to Peebles Eastgate Theatre; opened in 2004 with a varied year-round selection of theatre, music and art exhibitions.

"It's peebles for pleasure"

Charming little cottage, ideal for 5 school and university friends celebrating their 40th birthdays in wild Peebles ... well, not quite. A lovely little borders town, with lots of charming walks and decent eating places.

Highpoint of the cottage was the (seemingly) newly decorated kitchen/ diner, which was very spacious and bright (and, for an unexpected bonus, had a mini-football table). Bedrooms were fine, although the mattresses a touch on the hard side. Two public rooms, one with a real fire, the other we used as a bedroom. Ideally sized for 5 but would have a bit of a squeeze for 8, particularly as it only has one shower.

Lovely garden, not that we used it much. Cottage was in a good area of town and represented excellent value for a weekend away.
