It is a pretty walk to civilisation (also 2 miles) and a short drive to many of the Border towns. Return to private barbecue patios, gardens gated for small children, a newly installed hot tub from which you can enjoy the wonderful view down the valley, sleek slate- floored bathrooms, fabulous beds and pristine linen.
