  • "Fabulous accommodation with everything we could possibly need, and no issues whatsoever."

    The owners were incredibly helpful and friendly. The Estate grounds were exceptional. Can't wait to come back!!! Way beyond what we expected. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!!

  • "Although lovely it is due the updating from the renovations that are planned."

    Quiet and peaceful. Lovely to wander round the grounds with the dogs especially the feeling after the garden is closed and you have the whole place to yourself to wander around. The garden is secure. Lots to do in the area if your active and lots not do if you just want to chill. Lovely walks along the Tweed. If like us you have a dog that can’t be let of the lead there’s a brilliant secure 10 acre field in Earlston called Brambles field. It’s a good 45 mins drive but worth it and the scenery is fantastic on the way there.

  • "The cottage was extremely clean and well equipped, very peaceful and the gardens beautiful."

    However, the seating in the main room was very uncomfortable, very new and not keeping with an old cottage. The photos on the Sykes site it was different and very in keeping and looked very cosy and comfortable. It seems like a very trivial thing to mention but it makes a real difference when you already struggle with muscle problems. The only comfortable seating was on the beds or the window seat in the kitchen. Everything else was lovely, including the little touches like a food hamper which we really appreciated.

  • "We were aware the décor was a bit dated as were parts of the exterior however the owners have only recently taken over the estate."

    Its setting and friendliness of everyone we met made up for any faults . Its setting within the stunning garden estate is quite unique and with 2 fishing lakes and a putting green within a few hundred metres plus close to Peebles made it an ideal family base to explore the area.

  • "Coachmans Cottage is situated in the ground of Kailzie Gardens."

    When closed, you have the entire gardens to yourself - perfect for those looking for a very quiet place to stay or with a dog to enjoy the fantastic walks. The cottage had so much character, the new owners had only taken over Kailzie Gardens a few months earlier and already started to update the cottage with big plans. They were such lovely people too who made us feel so welcome. Wood burner too.. so in the colder spring evenings coming back after a day out, having a walk in the beautiful gardens then back to light the fire - just perfect ! We will go back there time and time again... such a lovely place

The property

Perfectly positioned on the outskirts of Peebles and in the heart of the beautiful 19th century Kailzie Gardens, Coachman’s Cottage is a charming stone cottage offering six guests a homely setting during a Scottish adventure.

Renovated from former stables, Coachman’s Cottage is an enchanting retreat, carefully decorated with a traditional style and equipped with all you need on a self-catered stay.

Upon arrival, discover the wonderful lounge where a collection of pastel colours arm chairs await you, scattered around the woodburning stove to keep you warm, with characterful furnishings and a dining table situated in the corner, it’s a truly welcoming setting.

The cute country kitchen is home to an electric oven and hob along with several more appliances both in here and in the utility room, so you can rustle up some tasty home-cooked dishes for your loved ones to enjoy.

Perfect for older guests or those with limited mobility is the charming ground-floor twin bedroom, furnished with a pretty dressing table and bedside lamps along with a feature fireplace, and served by the ground-floor bathroom and a cloakroom.

Follow the steep cottage stairs up to the first floor to find two further twin bedrooms, each with their own unique take on tradition, with delightful prints and a quaint elegance throughout.

On clear, sunny days spend time out in the lovely south-facing garden, relaxing under the sun at the outdoor furniture, with your canine companions at your side.

Although positioned right in the centre of Kailzie Gardens, Coachman’s Cottage still feels secluded, whilst benefitting from full access to the beautiful gardens along with the walks around the estate, 18-hole putting greens, and trout fishing during the spring and summer months on the River Tweed.

Pop into the courtyard café situated behind the cottage for a morning treat, or choose to venture out into Peedbles to find the lovely selection of cafés, restaurants and pubs with something for every occasion.

The heart of the town lies in the main high street found on a spur of land between the River Tweed and Eddleston Water, home to an array of fine shops, the Tweeddale Museum and Gallery, John Buchan Story Museum and the Eastgate Theatre.

Enjoy a morning walk over to the ruins of Horsburgh Castle, or for a more energetic ramble head into the beautiful Glentress Forest for idyllic woodland scenery, with more fun to be found at Glentress Mountain Bike Trail Centre and Go Ape Glentress.

Hire bikes here or store your own in the bike storage at Coachman’s Cottage, with the surrounding area being brilliant for cycling and mountain biking.

Visit the bustling town of Galashiels and the incredible baronial mansion of Abbotsford, The Home of Sir Walter Scott, a Scottish novelist, playwright and poet, with extensive grounds to explore and grand rooms to marvel at, it makes a great day out!

Delight in a wonderful stay at Coachman's Cottage with your loved ones in Peebles.
