Location description from owner

The Scotland region

The Scottish Borders is steeped in history and is home to an abundance of castles, historic houses and ruined abbeys. The Borders Abbey Way suggests a circuit of the four grand abbeys, founded almost 900 years ago and the centrepiece to each Borders town. The Borders are famous for their sporting opportunities with many outdoor pursuits catered for. The climate is what you would expect for Scotland! Usually a fairly warm and sunny Spring to Summer, with temperatures in the high teens. Our Winters can be ferocious, with deep blankets of snow making for picturesque scenery and atmospheric Festive Seasons.

Peebles

Peebles is a welcoming, quaint and picturesque town found in the northern part of the Scottish Borders. It is set amidst beautiful rolling countryside, with an eye opening amount of outdoor activities right on the doorstep. Mountain biking, fishing, hill walking and horse riding are all available within a few miles of the town and Ludgate House is a five minute walk to Peebles Golf Club.

The Peebles Beltane Festival is a festival of local legend, history and tradition, marking the return of summer with the lighting of fires. It is celebrated each year at the end of June with processions, riding out of the horses and a multitude of local events. The historic theme is strengthend by the close proximity of many castles and houses - Traquair House being only a ten minute drive away, a fairytale, turreted castle with magical woods and craft workshops to explore.

“Home from Home - Fabulous”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2016

We stayed at Ludgate House at the end of September. The house is very cosy and very well equipped. Ali had left Milk, Coffee etc which was really appreciated. The location is brilliant especially to explore Edinburgh and surrounding area. It is less than a 5 minute walk to the village centre and the river walks even less. The property is very comfy and was like home from home. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you for a lovely stay.

“Wonderful cottage - can recommend it highly enough”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2014

A lovely, well appointed cottage within walking distance of the wonderful Peebles High Street. Stayed with my husband, my cousin and her husbane plus our two dogs. The owners make everything easy from booking your visit to the many thoughtful touches. Everything we wanted had been though of and provided - games, DVDs, the tasting cabinet, lots of books about the region and pamphlets helping us to decide what to do - even bags for collecting doggie poop. Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Peebles is a great base for exploring the Borders and is within easy reach of Edinburgh and Rosslyn Chapel to name a few. Ludgate House is well worth a visit and I don't doubt that we will visit again.
