Location description from owner

The Scotland region

The Scottish Borders is renowned for its turbulent history, fishing, rugby, golfing and rolling landscape. The Tweed and its tributaries are the life blood of the Borders defining the countryside, villages, towns and the people. The river stretches over 97 miles through the Borders to the sea at Berwick.

The Scottish Borders stretches from the rolling hills and moorland in the west, through gentler valleys to the rich agricultural plains of the east, and on to the rocky Berwickshire coastline with its secluded coves and picturesque fishing villages.

Whether you explore by car, on bike or on foot, you'll discover friendly towns and picturesque villages, as well as the castles, abbeys, stately homes and museums that illustrate the exciting and often bloody history of the area. It's that history which is commemorated in the Common Ridings and other local festivals, creating a colourful pageant much enjoyed by visitors and native Borderers alike.

The area is a paradise for walkers, cyclist and golfers of all types while in the River Tweed and its many tributaries, you'll find some of the best fishing in Scotland. The Scottish Borders is also home to rugby and passion and rivalry inevitably emerge as the Rugby Sevens tournament gets under way through spring and summer.

Jedburgh

Ancrum village is well located to tour the Borders and flavour the hospitality of the area. The Border towns of Jedburgh, Kelso, Melrose, Hawick and Galashiels are within 20 mins. drive.

The Borders is steeped in history and proud traditions. There are many interesting places to visit, Abbotsford- home of Sir Walter Scott near Melrose, Floors Castle at Kelso, Bowhill near Selkirk, Mary Queen of Scots House and The Castle Jail in Jedburgh to name a few.

The Borders is made for cycling. Quiet country lanes and open countryside between the Border towns and villages. The mountain bike centre at Glentress is 40 minutes drive from Ancrum

The Borders has 21 golf courses to be enjoyed. All the courses are set in spectacular countryside and most Border towns have their own course.

“Freedom of the Fairways, adult and senior 3 and 5 day golf passports for 21 courses is unique to the Borders. The passport offers great value for money and is Scotland’s best selling golf pass”.

A short journey will take you to the Northumberland and East Lothian coastlines where there are numerous links courses to test your golf game.

“Fabulous property.”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2016

A fantastic cottage in a friendly village. Fabulous interior with high quality bedding & interior. The garden is well maintained & a serene sanctuary with glorious views. A walk in shower would make it perfect,however this is a purely personal opinion. We will be back soon.!!

“Wonderful cottage in a friendly village.”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2014

We had a brilliant weekend in the quirky, quaint and pretty Violet Cottage. Its deceptively small exterior belies the well-furnished and confortable interior and the views from the lovely back garden make it a perfect spot for R & R. The local pub - The Cross Keys - is walking distance and and you can eat there too but the food is more sophisticated than you might expect. There were four of us in the cottage but if the maximum 6 adults were staying, there might be a bit of pressure on the one bathroom. Violet Cottage has a good feeling about it and we will definitely return.

“It was a home from home.”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2014

We loved staying at Violet Cottage. It's so spacious and welcoming. And the owners are very helpful. We loved our week there and it was very sad to leave. Such a great location. And it must be fantastic to be there in summer with such a big garden, but it was a wonderful winter retreat too. The space was great and very well equipped. Thank you for such a lovely place to stay

“Excellent Cottage ideally located in the Scottish Borders”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2012

This cottage is well-equipped for a family break in this beautiful area. The small village of Ancrum (1 shop, 1 pub) is well placed for visits to Border towns, Edinburgh and the beautiful east cost. The cottage has all the amenities one would expect plus reliable wifi. Local shopping is avialable in Jedburgh (3-4 miles) and most supermarkets can be found in the vicinity. There are a number of significant local historical attractions including the abbeys of Dryburgh, Melrose and Jedburgh plus the Waterloo monument. Further afield we visited Tantallon & Edinburgh Castles. There are some great local eating places (check out the visitor book). Overall a great base for discovering the Scottish Borders.

“A lovely, comfortable, well equiped cottage, well sited for exploring the Borders and Edinburgh”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2012

Very comfortably and tastefully furnished. Quiet and tranquil with a large private garden behind. The WiFi was particularly appreciated. Very useful for getting information on places to visit, bus times, Edinburgh Park and Ride etc. Would definitely come again.
