Location description from owner

The Scotland region

The Scottish Borders is steeped in history and has the most beautiful, gently rolling, unspoiled landscape. Small towns characterise the region, each with its own unique history and heritage including 4 spectacular Abbeys in Jedburgh, Kelso, Melrose and Dryburgh, all within 20 minutes of the cottage.

The Cottage is also located on the walks St Cuthbert's Way, Borders Abbey Way, Deer Street. Common Riding festivals are held within each town during the summer months, with spectular mounted cavalcades passing along the historic high streets before galloping to the town boundaries.

Jedburgh

Jedburgh is famous for its 12C Augustinian Abbey, as well as a Howard Reform Prison (Jedburgh Castle Jail) and Queen Mary's House, as well as a 18 hole golf course.

There are also some great restaurants (Capon Tree, Carters Rest, Glenbank's Auld Alliance) and a number of great indepentent retailers selling everything from handmade gifts to quality local meat. Jedburgh hosts rugby sevens in May (rugby ground within walking distance of the cottage) and its local festival in early July.

“The cottage was beautiful, warm, clean and had everything we needed for a family of five.”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2014

I really recommend this cottage, modern and tastefully decorated, very clean and spacious, ideal for a family. It has a lovely patio where the sun shines until late, great for watching the kids play in the large garden with a glass of wine. Sarah was very helpful and welcoming. Price was amazingly low during May half term. We loved our stay.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for taking the time to post your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay and that the kids did too. Lots to do in the area for kids in Jedburgh at at the nearby Harestanes visitor centre. We think the deck at the front is a real asset too, and yes, it's great to see the sun go down on it with a glass of wine. Hope we can welcome you back some time soon with the family, kindest regards, Sarah

“gorgeous cottages with fantastic facilities”

Reviewed 29 Nov 2013

Stayed on the weekend of the 23rd November 2013 with a group of six girls. The cottage is of an excellent standard. Three large comfortable bedrooms, bathroom and toilet and a great equipped kitchen diner. The sitting room was so comfortable for everyone and had a log burner so extremely cosy. Would HIGHLY recommend this cottage! we ate at the restaurant next door so perfect location. Definitely be back...

“Ideal Holiday Home from Home”

Reviewed 12 May 2013

We had a local family wedding during Easter fortnight and had quite a problem finding accommodation for just 3 days. (Most places asked for a 1 week booking), so thanks to Sarah's flexibility we were in. She also provided early access to allow us to get changed before our event, by prior arrangement and gave us taxi numbers (very reliable and on time) to take us from the cottage to the venue. Set in the beautiful rolling Border countryside, the cottage is a gem. It's comfortable, spacious, immaculate and tastefully decorated with lots of homely touches. In addition a some goodies had been left in the kitchen to get us started and a supply of logs for the wood burner for our cozy nights in, a nice welcome! The Scottish Borders is a lovely region to explore, stop and take in it's sights! The accommodation is a perfect base, with all the pretty Border towns in easy reach and an abundance of walks for all abilities, on it's doorstep. We loved it - think you will too!

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for posting a review and for your kind words about our cottage, flexibility and the beautiful Borders. Hope you and the family will come back and explore again, with some warmer weather perhaps! Kind regards, Sarah

“Great place, wonderful host”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2013

Often photos on a website are rather better than the real thing. Here it is even better! Everything is well thought out for easy living and the location is rural and idyllic.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your kind comments, glad you think the photos do the cottage justice- often difficult to capture the country cottage feel but the beams, doors and features do give the place a gret feel.Hope you might consider celebrating New Year again with us next year! (with new kitchen knives provided!!) Kindest regards, Sarah

“Excellent, well-equipped cottage in a fine location”

Reviewed 21 Nov 2012

My wife and I stayed with our 3 year old and 6 month old daughters in Sept 2012. This was an excellent cottage in a good location. It is excellently equipped, with all the necessary mod-coms. Modern, yet remains very homely, and with a real eye for detail. The layout is very good, especially for young children to run around in (but not to be disturbed by the tv when sleeping at night), largely on a ground floor level, but with a really cosy loft bedroom upstairs. My 3 year old loved playing with the great selection of games left by the owners, and my wife and I had everything we could ask for with books, TV & wi-fi internet, and some slightly larger jigsaws. Travelcot and highchair available for the babe too. Parking in courtyard and a small separate garden for the kids to enjoy too. It's also right next to the Caddyman's restaurant for a good mix of fine-dining & pub food (squirrel balls anyone?!). It might be not far away from a main road, but actually it is extremely quiet and far enough a way to not be a problem for the kids. The Scottish Borders is an excellent place for a stress-free family holiday. An infinite number of walks in very attractive countryside, close to the town of Jedburgh to pick up groceries (and order a good curry!), with lots of other close towns (e.g. Kelso) and a large Sainsbury's not too far away. A good selection of play-parks, animal parks, castles, cafes and craft villages also close by, and only a 1-2 hour drive to get to the City of Edinburgh Excellent price and very friendly, helpful owners. Can't fault it in the slightest. I'm already being pestered by my little ladies to go back again very soon. And we will!

Owner's reply: Many thanks for taking the time to post a review. We really do value your feedback and are delighted that the whole family had a great time, and that you felt that you'd had a holiday even quite close to home. Hope you can fit a trip to the Borders in to 2013, kind regards, Sarah and Tom

“We have stayed in many holiday cottages in the UK and this has to be one of our favourites”

Reviewed 16 Jun 2012

The cottage had everything we needed - big bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom, all very clean, well equipped and with all mod cons. A variety of walks on the doorstep and very friendly neighbours. Not too far from Jedburgh, which was one of our favourite towns in the area. Visit Scotland app on my phone provides really good ideas on local attractions, of which there are plenty. An all round idyllic holiday - many thanks!

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your kind comments and feedback. We are on the case with the Wifi and should have it in, in the next few weeks. Until then, people will have to get away from it all!! Hope to see you and the family back soon and really glad you liked Jedburgh, regards, Sarah
