Location description from owner

The Scotland region

The Scottish Borders is lightly populated so its the ideal location to slow down and relax in beautiful countryside. The scenery is quite dramatic in places and ideal for those the open air. There are some very pretty Border towns with great places to visit including the Heritage Hub and Cashmere Centre in Hawick, abbeys at Kelso, Jedburgh and Melrose and stunning country houses such at Floors Castle and walter Scott's Bemersyde. Some of the leisure centres have super facilities but without irritating bustle. For the more active sailing, diving, horse riding and mountain biking are all within easy reach.

Hawick

Hawick is steeped in history. It was continually under threat during the Middles Ages when Scotland and England waged war almost continuously. This is reiving country and Hawick Common Riding, held in June annually, gives you a flavour of the importance of horse riding during those turbulent times. Equally Hawick is the centre of the Scottish Cashmere industry and there's no better place to buy that most luxurious gift. It all started back in the 18th century with the introduction of the first stocking frame to the town heralding the start of the industrial revolution locally. Hawick folk are friendly and quick to help visitors find the most interesting places to visit.

“Very comfortable and an ideal location”

Reviewed 27 Oct 2016

Just returned from a 4 day visit to the cottage having stayed there with my wife and teenage son. We have been regular visitors to Hawick for many years and were looking for a comfortable place to stay close to Hawick town but in a quiet and peaceful location. It is easily accessed partway up a hill along a well maintained gravel driveway and we found it to be very clean, comfortable and homely. It has an excellent outlook and although we were unable to make full use of the outdoor facilities due to a busy visiting schedule, these would be a delight for anyone visiting during warmer months. The owners are very welcoming and helpful and reside fairly close by should there be any need to contact them. We hope to be able to make more visits to Hawick in the future and would be delighted to stay there again and would have no hesitation in recommending Martinshouse to friends and family.

Hi Rob many thanks for your lovely review we are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Martinshouse and found it clean, comfortable and homely we would be delighted to welcome back you and your family again. Many thanks from all at Martinshouse

“Well worth a visit”

Reviewed 19 Feb 2013

This is a lovely secluded cottage in splendid countryside and within easy reach of Hawick and other local area. The cottage is comfortable and we were warmly welcomed by Mr and Mrs Turnbull. The local town has some good shops - including an excellent off-licence, a splendid tea room and no less than three "proper" butchers. Eating out choices in Hawick are a bit limited but the Italian restaurant has a good selection at reasonable prices. Recommended
