Location description from owner

The Scottish Borders region

Whatever you are looking for The Scottish Border's takes some beating. The hills and rivers range from the majestic to the tame and have inspired artists and writers such as Walter Scott and James Hogg (otherwise known as the Ettrick Shepherd). Those same hills are a walker's or mountain biker's dream. Why not venture along part of the Southern Upland or St Cuthbert's Way or explore the 7Stanes Mountain bike trails?

Innerleithen is the ideal base for exploring the Borders. Peebles, Melrose and Moffat are just a few of the small towns within easy reach. All have their own unique style, and you will find a range of interesting shops, museums and coffee shops in each place. If visiting stately homes is your bag then you will be pleased to know that you can fill your days with trips to the Bowhill Estate, Abbotsford (home of Walter Scott) , Mellerstane House and Thirlestane.

Have a day out in Edinburgh while you're here. It is on a direct bus route from Innerleithen, or a 50 minute drive away.

There is so much to do you can't possibly get bored in the Borders.

Innerleithen

Surrounded by outstanding countryside, and located on the river Tweed, Innerleithen caters exceptionally well for holiday-makers. On Cosaig's doorstep you will find not only a selection of interesting shops, friendly pubs and small restaurants, but also tourist attractions such as Traquair House, the National Trust's Robert Smail's Printing Works and St. Ronan's Wells.

For the more active there is a multitude of lovely local walks and bike rides. Indeed Innerleithen is famous for it's downhill track which is one of the 7stanes mountain bike trails. Very nearly complete is a new all-purpose path which will link Innerleithen, Cardrona and Peebles, and which will take you to Glentress, another huge draw for mountain bikers. Glentress is also the home of a new Go-Ape tree top adventure course. If you are fond of swimming, both Peebles and nearby Galashiels have swimming pools. Peebles Hydro hotel also runs Day Spa breaks.

The Scottish Border's towns are renowned for their summer festivals, and Innerleithen is no exception, boasting the oldest organised sports meeting in Scotland. St Ronan's Games Week is really a misnomer with activities for people of all ages spreading over 10 days. Innerleithen knows how to party! Other annual treats include the Traquair Fair and many mountain biking events.

“Fabulous cottage for humans and hounds”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2015

We had a fabulous stay from the moment we arrived (to fresh flowers, fruit, dog treats and more). Jennifer and Megan are so kind and have really catered for every need. Innerleithen is lovely and has great shops and local walks. I'd highly recommend this cottage to anyone, particularly dog lovers.

We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Cosaig. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review :-D

“Great cottage, great service.”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2015

I had read that the cottage was well equipped but was still surprised at the extras that were provided. The owner Jennifer goes above and beyond and is happy to give you ideas for days out, walks from the door etc. The cottage is very comfortable and in a nice location in the village. There is a nice back garden to relax in and shops on the doorstep. Would definitely recomend.

Many thanks for your kind review. We're really pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope we will get to see you again :-D

“Everything you could need, and lovely location.”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2015

We were lucky to book a cancellation at short notice and so pleased we did. Cosaig is perfectly situated for a holiday in lovely Innerleithen. the cottage is comfortable and cosy and was equipped with everything we needed plus more. Lovely and clean, and with little touches which made us feel like we were in a hotel (towels, bedding, welcome treats, all fantastic). The town is really friendly and we loved being so close to everything, and didn't need to use the car at all. A great place for children and lots to do outdoors, the children (9 and 14) loved being so close to the park, the woods, the hills, walks, the rivers and Smail's printers.

Thank you. We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and appreciated the loveliness of this special town! We very much hope we can welcome you all back soon. Best Wishes, Jennifer

“Fantastic cottage in superb location”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2015

Very comfortable, well equipped cottage with everything you need to make it feel a real home from home experience. The owner is very helpful in terms of all the information beforehand and in helping plan your visit and thoughtful in providing really personal touches like the welcome pack, flowers and fruit. The linen is fresh and beds very comfortable. The cottage is set in the heart of the village with interesting shops and pubs. It was our first visit to the Scottish Boarders and we were immensely impressed with how friendly everyone was and the wonderful scenery and great cycling and we are already planning our next trip!

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and are always glad to have another convert to the beauty and friendliness of the lovely Tweed Valley! If you return in the future you will be able to take advantage of the new railway line (opening Sept 2015). The cycle from the station to Cosaig along the Granites road is simply stunning. Thanks once again, Jennifer

“Jennifer thought of everything!”

Fantastic cottage; homely, comfortable, immaculate, clean and with lots of little added extras, and in a beautiful location! Couldn't ask for anymore!

So glad you were happy with the cottage! Thank you :-D

“Wonderful house in Innerleithen”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2015

Stayed here in May 2015 with 2 adults 2 children and 2 dogs and the owners couldn't have been more helpful. My son was mountain biking in Tweedlove and he was impressed with the wall mounted rack to clean and maintain his bike in the back garden. If you are coming with dogs they provide blankets bowls and dog towels. All in all the most well equipped house we have stayed in. Thank you Jennifer.

Very happy to receive such a lovely review. Thank you so much :-D I do hope we will be able to welcome you back to the Tweed Valley very soon. Best Wishes, Jennifer

“warm welcoming cottage”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2015

Excellent small cottage in the centre of Innerliethen that can sleep up to 6 people. Only a few minuets from the downhill trais. Good bike storing and washing facilities.

We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Glad the bike wash went down well...think it was probably needed after a day on the trails! We very much hope we can welcome you all back another time. Thank you so much for leaving a review. It's much appreciated Jennifer :-D

“Great cottage with lots of attention to detail”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2015

Perfectly equipped cottage, much appreciated welcome basket, beautiful hill-walking surroundings! Very dog friendly too. We would definitely come back :)

We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and would be delighted if you do come back....especially as you brought the lovely weather with you! Many Thanks, Jennifer

Great cottage, excellent location to the MTB trails. Catered for outdoor guests with room to move and sort your biking kit. Will definitely stay again.
