Yethouse is pet friendly, 2 well behaved dogs but they must be kept under control as we are in the middle of sheep country!

The very best of everything....... scenery surrounding Yethouse will appeal to those who like to blow away the cobwebs out in the fresh air. There are many walks, mountain biking - the world-renowned 7stanes mountain biking trails are on our doorstep.. For the really adventurous our neighbours are Rock UK, an Activity Centre offering kayaking, rock climbing, abseiling, swimming and loads more. Horse-riding, golf and fishing are also available.

If all this sounds far too exhausting then curl up by the fire in one of the sumptuously furnished living rooms. In the summer months you'll enjoy the private garden listening to the curlew and watching the swifts and swallows swoop. During the winter, things are so cosy and comfortable inside you might not want to leave!

“Fantastic Weekend Getaway”

Reviewed 25 Apr 2016

We had a wonderful weekend away at the Yethouse. We were warmly welcomed to this beautiful and well-appointed holiday home. We were so lucky with the weather and a weekend of sunshine allowed us to enjoy the idyllic rural setting. The house itself offered everything we needed, from its well-equipped kitchen to its stacks of boardgames. There was plenty of space for everyone to relax and all the rooms were immaculate. We would have no reservation in recommending this property to families or groups of friends and we hope to return in the future.

Thank you for your fabulous feedback, it is great to know our endeavours are appreciated. Delighted you enjoyed your weekend. We look forward to welcoming you all back in the future. B

“Great weekend, great house, great owner”

Reviewed 20 Nov 2015

The house is fabulous. Everything you could possibly need, beautifully decorated and quality items, and nothing too much trouble. Barbara was great - she arranged a mobile beauty therapist and took great care of us all. Would highly recommend this lovely house to anyone wanting to visit the area. We will certainly be re-booking

Most appreciated, thank you for your kind words. Julie is great delighted you enjoyed your day and the weather! Look forward to the return trip Best wishes to all B

“Fantastic lodge with great character!”

Reviewed 27 Apr 2015

Stayed here with some friends for the weekend and it was fantastic! Such a beautiful lodge, very spacious & lots to discover. Plus the host was lovely- very helpful and she even baked us a cake! I can't promise you'll get this every time ;)

Thank you for your review much appreciated. Glad you liked the lemon drizzle cake! Best wishes to all, B

“Perfect!”

Reviewed 27 Jan 2015

My family asked how I found Yethouse and the answer is lots of searching and comparing. It seemed just what we wanted and the previous reviews were faultless so I sent off my enquiry. Immediately Barbara responded and nothing was too much trouble - she noted that we were celebrating a 21st so suggested all sorts of dining options, putting me in touch with an excellent caterer if we wanted to go down that route. We arrived on a snowy Friday and were welcomed by a smile, informative but not overbearing tour of the house, a fabulous lemon cake and, a lovely touch, a card for my son for his birthday (even remembering his name). Yethouse is the kind of place where you feel like you always knew it, Within a couple of hours we were enjoying a meal and a drink and laughing around the dining table. The house is cosy but much larger than we imagined - just perfect for our group. The beds are wonderful, the hot water plentiful and there is everything you could possibly need for meals, entertainment and relaxing. And the walks - oh the walks! We were lucky because it was either snowing or bright sunshine so we felt like we were stepping into Narnia when we walked through the forest, snow dripping from the trees and silence, complete silence. At night we walked just 50 yards away from the house and gazed at the stars. All very magical. This was a special weekend that we will all remember. If you are reading this and researching and comparing like I was I suggest you stop because I don't think you will find anywhere better.

Thank you so much for taking time to post a review for us. Delighted that the family enjoyed their stay. We have never been compared to Narnia before but our tagline is 'middle of nowhere, centre of everywhere', your review encapsulates exactly what we try to deliver our guests. Thank you for being so gracious. B

“Perfect get away”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2015

Another lovely week at the Yethouse, our 3rd visit, this time with friends as well as our own kids ( and the dogs) . The house was as welcoming as ever, warm, cosy and really well equipped for all the festive cooking, eating and TV watching! The 2nd TV in the sitting room is a fantastic addition. The new mountain bike trail down to the village is great and made the milk run a lot of fun. Highlights this time included a trip to Kielder Observatory , rewarded by clear skies and a great view of the Milky Way and the Andromeda Galaxy, and a fantastic view of Santa's sleigh passing overhead on a clear, sparkling Christmas Eve. Just such a lovely house and location it's hard to explain it in words but the fact that we're hoping to go back for a 4th visit probably says it all.

Thank you for sharing your experiences again. Delighted that the children were all able to see Santa on Christmas eve, made our Christmas as well! Looking forward to next time already. Best wishes B

“Fantastic house”

This house is a must stay house. Loads of room, beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and full of character.

Thank you! Shame you only came for a few days - plan for longer next time! Best wishes B

“The most delightful comfortable character property in The Borders”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2014

Recently were lucky to get a booking at Yethouse Farm in the Scottish Borders. The house was large, comfortable and welcoming as were the hosts Barbara & Paul Elborn. It is a tranquil location within easy reach of Newcastleton surrounded by beautiful walks and breathtaking scenery. There is lots to do and see in the area if you want days out or jsut walk and admire the fabulous location. We had a fabulous week and will certainly be going back!

Thank you for taking time to post a review. Delighted you enjoyed your stay and experienced the Scottish Borders at their best; hot balmy days with a hint of autumn in the evenings. Doesn't get much better than that! We look forward to welcoming you back - next time bring the family, there is plenty of room! Best wishes to all B

“Déjà vu , again :-)”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2014

This was our fifth (or more, lost count really) visit to Yethouse and once again it has been great. Being keen MTB types the news of new MTB trails on the Newcastleton 7-Stanes was an added bonus. The new trails are graded Red/Blue and are definitely worth a visit. To go with the new trails, a new Trailhead will be located at the north end of the village, near the new bridge over the river which was officially opened by the Duke of Buccleugh on Monday 7th July. We've already booked for next year.

Thanks guys, we value your business and loved having you back. Your feedback on the new trails is great - delighted you were amongst the very first to use them - they should be well and truly bedded in for your return next year! Best wishes to all, B

“Stunning location, property and like visiting old friends”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2014

We have been to Yethouse a number of times now and receive the warmest welcome each time. It has everything we could need in a house which is maintained and kitted out to the highest quality, comfortable beds with crisp quality linen, stunning garden and outlook and on the doorstep of breathtaking mountains, rivers and a great base for touring Scotland a bit further. The locals are friendly, good pub grub and there is plenty to do in the house itself, games and 3D TV with an impressive collection of DVDs and books and music if you don't want to travel or prefer a 'lazy' day. Despite it's remoteness, the free wifi means you can also stay in touch with the world. The best part for us is that we don't have to compromise on our own standard of luxury just because we have a dog. He is welcome too and loves it. We will keep coming.

Thanks guys, great to have you back. We know you could have picked other places to try, your business is much valued. Look forward to meeting the new member of the family next year! Best wishes B

Excellent modern facilities within the house and garden, with careful consideration given for all your possible needs to enjoy a family holiday. Extensive book and CD library to enjoy on evenings or rainy days. Great secure dog friendly garden. Lovely peaceful area with great views and interesting walks.

Thank you for taking time to post a review for us, we really appreciate the feedback, it's great to know that the little touches make the house feel like a home from home. Best wishes to all. B
