Further details indoors

Garden Cottage is a stylish holiday property for two people. The comfortable sitting room has a huge stone fireplace as its focal point, complete with wood-burning stove. Entertainment is provided through a large flat-screen television with digital channels and there is also broadband internet access with wi-fi facility.

The separate dining-kitchen is a bright room with French doors offering views across a spacious private lawn and fully-equipped with a wide variety of culinary essentials. The wooden flooring throughout the ground floor of the cottage provides a warm, atmospheric feel, and all floorboards were cut from a single ancient ash tree that grew beside the castle and fell in a storm.

The bedroom has a king-size bed and a full height window framing views of Wedderburn Castle and across the countryside. The chic limestone bathroom has a generous 1.9m bath with shower.

Further details outdoors

The cottage has parking at the door which is for the exclusive use of Garden Cottage.

The Scottish Borders region

The Scottish Borders offer the perfect holiday location to suit a wide range of interests. Local attractions include beaches and areas of spectacular natural beauty including Coldingham, St Abbs Head and Bamburgh, historical houses, priories and abbeys and sporting activities including golf, trail and beach riding, cycling on nearby cycle-routes through the unspoilt Berwickshire countryside, hot-air ballooning, fishing on the rivers Tweed and the Whiteadder and off-road driving.

The Borders has a dramatic history and Duns is an ideal base to explore both the east and west borders. Nearby historic houses and sites include Manderston and Mellerstain, Hume Castle, Floors Castle, Kelso Abbey, Smailholm Tower, Norham Castle, Paxton House, Coldingham Priory and Ladykirk Church.


Duns is a thriving market town in the Scottish Borders offering a selection of high-quality local shops – bakery, delicatessen, greengrocer, chemist, coffee and gift shops – and a small supermarket.

The nearest station is Berwick-upon-Tweed which is serviced by both the East Coast Mainline and Cross Country trains from the west of the country. The cottages are a 20 minute drive or taxi ride from Berwick-upon-Tweed and cars can easily be rented in Berwick.

Edinburgh and Edinburgh airport are also an easy drive from Duns, taking approximately 1hr.
