The grand houses of Abbotsford (Sir Walter Scott's home), Mellerstain, Floors, Paxton (home to part of the National Gallery) and others are easily reached and even Edinburgh is only about an hour away yet this is another world - one of great beauty and peace where your holiday home will be found to be comfortable, and convenient.

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

The Borders was the disputed area, to the north of the Cheviot Hills, which changed allegiance from Scotland to England and back constantly for hundreds of years. A rich, fertile area, it was settled in the middle ages by monks from the south who brought in sheep farming and wool weaving as an industry. These monks have left the magnificent abbey ruins at Kelso, Melrose, Jedburgh, Sweetheart, Dryburgh and then there are the batlefield sites and the great houses at Abbotsford, Floors, Manderston, Mellerstain, and many others to explore to add to the dramatic beauty of the countryside, the pretty villages which characterise the region. The coast

Kelso

Kelso is a riverside town of charm with many fine Georgian buildings around the market square. The former Cistercian abbey ruins lie next to the river Tweed which sweeps in grand manner around the town centre. The Duke's house, Floors, is just across the river and Morebattle village is 10 minutes drive south.

“An oasis of calm & comfort”

Reviewed 10 May 2015

A warm welcome in all senses of the word awaited our arrival late on a Sunday evening. Benfield is a charming, sympathetically restored cottage ideal for 2. It is snug, warm, cosy, homely, inviting and has everything you want. The welcome basket was a lovely touch, as was the table already set for dinner for two. The bed is amazingly comfortable and the bathroom luxurious with wonderfully fluffy towels. I highly recommend Benfield for any couple.

We are ever so grateful for your kind comments. Morebattle is such a lovely village and we hope that we've looked after this pretty three-hundred year old cottage but given it "mod cons."

“charming and cosy cottage”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2015

We picked this cottage for a quiet break over new year and we were delighted. The attention to detail and the extras such as welcome pack were lovely. The inside is cosy , modern and well worth a visit.

Do hope you'll come again. Benfield and Morebattle are very special places in some spectacular and little known countryside.

“Great Center for touring Boarder Couties”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2012

WE stayed for one week and found that we could have stayed longer we were fortunate with the weather. The cottage was superb well furnished , clean and suited our needs perfectly which was to have a base to tour around the boarders. The people in the village were very friendly and the local pub was fine with a reasonable but basic menu but the food and the ale was very good.

We agree that the Scottish Borders are a great area for history and beautiful countryside. Thanks for the warm comments about our cottage. Glad that you enjoyed your stay Christine
