House | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 14

Perfect for family and friends get-togethers.

The Byres is a beautiful stone-built house that will very comfortably accommodate 14 people with room to spare. Newly converted to a high standard, this traditional 19thC farm steading is the ideal place for family and friends to meet up and relax in the tranquil rural setting of the River Ettrick and rolling Border Hills.

The house is light, spacious, and tastefully and comfortably furnished, with polished wooden floors downstairs and luxurious fitted carpet everywhere else, and with 6 large bedrooms, it is just the right size to easily accommodate three generations of one family, making it a perfect venue for family celebrations.

The large lounge, kitchen and dining area give plenty of space for everyone to spend time together without falling over each other. There is also a pool table, ping pong, and trampoline, as well as a quiet sitting room with books and games.

For disabled access, we have wide hallways and double doorways as well as a downstairs twin bedroom and toilet/shower room with hand rails, and a ramp to the house for wheelchairs.

Patio doors in the kitchen open onto a private enclosed garden with BBQ, tables and chairs for alfresco dining, and 4 acres of land slope down towards the River Ettrick with paths, picnic benches and fabulous views.

Spend time paddling and messing about in the private stream, or explore the Scottish Borders with it's many Historic Houses, Castles, towns and miles of very scenic, unspoilt countryside.

Plenty of places of interest in the area, such as Abbotsford House ( the home of Sir Walter Scott) and Traquair, outdoor activities, and only 1 1/4 hours from the delights of Edinburgh.

Surrounded by rolling hills and winding rivers, The Byres is a luxurious rural getaway.
