    “An excellent cottage in a lovely location.”

    The cottage was well equipped, cosy, clean and even though we were close to the A7, the road noise was minimal. It was an ideal base for visiting the nearby towns of Hawick, Melrose and Jedburgh.

The property

Hawick 8.4 miles.

Colterscleuch Cottage is a fine stone cottage situated the outskirts of Teviothead in the Scottish Borders, on the banks of the Teviot Water and provides a perfect base for exploring the surrounding countryside.

Ideally located for biking, cycling, fishing, and golfing, horse riding, hunting, walking, and visiting the many historic border towns or just relaxing by the river.

There is also an abundance of wildlife surrounding the cottage and it’s easy to spend an hour or so just watching the many birds come and go, including pheasants.

Colterscleuch Cottage is a delightful property suited for a family or group of five, it enjoys a fairly secluded spot but is a short drive away from amenities.

Step into this all ground floor home and come to the kitchen/diner where an exposed stone wall features on one side, blending well with the soft cream and grey hues throughout the room, home to a fabulous range of appliances including an electric oven and hob, so you can get creative in the kitchen and produce some tasty meals to serve at the dining table.

Take three steps up into the sitting room where you can sink into one of the two pretty green sofas after lighting the woodburning stove and feeling the warmth on a winter evening, then browse the selection of games, books and DVDs and decide what the evening will hold; watch a film on the TV or curl up with a good book on the sofa.

Open up the patio doors in summer which lead out from this room and delight in sitting with a refreshing drink out in the sun on the picnic bench with views out over the fields.

Continue on when evening falls and find two bedrooms where you can rest your head, choosing from the king-size bedroom, or the triple room which holds three single beds, with quality furnishings for storage and pleasant, thoughtful decor creating a tranquil spot to wind down in.

Completing the interior is the vibrant bathroom with teal painted walls, home to a bath as well as a separate walk-in shower.

Mountain bikers and cyclists can experience wonderful cycle routes, including the Southern Borders Loop (choosing between either 50 mile circuit or 75 mile loop on virtually traffic free roads through some of the wildest countryside to Newcastleton and Hawick); the Abbey Cycle Route (55 miles passing through 4 historic towns with wonderful Abbeys or local cycling trails around Hawick and Jedburgh and best of all for off roaders) and the Justice Trail (over 40 miles of great cycling in the hills around nearby Jedburgh).

Fishing enthusiasts can enjoy salmon, trout and grayling fishing on the River Teviot on Colterscleuch Cottage’s doorstep and the River Tweed and its many tributaries nearby.

Those wanting to get back to nature can revel in the nearby Forestry at Craik in the heart of the Southern Uplands.

There are walks and cycle routes to suit all abilities and naturalists will love spotting red squirrel from the hides.

Newcastleton Forest area is steeped in the history of the Reivers and cross-border raiding, crossing the border into England where it meets with Kielder Forest, making it part of the largest forest in Britain.

The 7 Stanes cycle route runs through here, and this vast forest is used by walkers, cyclists and horses.

Travel up North to discover the historic town of Hawick, known for its knitwear as well as being rich in history, you will love browsing the great selection of shops with quality knitwear, maybe even making a few purchases along the way to add to your wardrobe.

Over in Jedburgh, learn of the town's position as a frontier town in the midst of many a battle, and visit the house where Mary Queen of Scots stayed in 1566 learning of her tragic history.

Colterscleuch Cottage is a fabulous retreat, perfect for making everlasting memories in the Scottish Borders.
