  • "This was our 2nd stay at Bonjedward and it just as good as the first."

    Very comfortable and equipped, everything you could want or need for a quality stay. Conveniently situated, easy to get to Edinburgh by train and clear roads across the borders. We come from Devon and just wish it was closer so we could visit more often.

  • "Having holidayed in many cottages over the years I would have to put Bonjedward in my top 5."

    It had everything required to make our stay comfortable from wi-fi to washing up liquid. The location was ideal far enough out of town to be peaceful but close enough for access to shops, restaurants etc. The owners are very friendly with a warm welcome and ready to stop for a chat. They also provide a vast selection of games to help while away any rainy days. All in all an excellent cottage and I would certainly return for another visit.

    Garden ideal for dog who had a whale of a time. Lovely walks on doorstep for quick walk before adventures further afield. The welcoming pack excellent and very thoughtful.

  • "A comfortable, well equipped (kitchen items, towels, cleaning products etc) and maintained cottage."

    Good layout for a multi-generation family stay (separate bedroom ‘wings’ each!). Great garden lawn for kids to play and lovely outdoor seating area in the sun. Good location, walkable to Jedburgh (Castle/jail was great) and short drive to Kelso (lovely ice cream parlour) Really welcoming and kind hosts, thank you both for a great stay.

  • "We had a lovely Christmas week in the cottage, walking from the door every day on footpaths and quiet lanes."

    It was perfect - spacious, well equipped and thoughtfully decorated for Christmas with a generous welcome pack. The beds are comfy, the log fire burns brightly and the owners are friendly and seem to have thought of everything.

  • "Absolutely lovely cottage with everything you could wish for during your stay."

    The cottage was so cosy and surrounded by plenty of farm life to make you feel a real sense of being in the country. We arrived late on day one and the cottage was already warm and packed with the essentials to get straight into a relaxing state. Great location for access to Edinburgh, Northumberland forest and more within 45mins each way. Thank you very much to the owners for being so accommodating and checking everything was OK during our break.

  • "Lovely cottage in the beautiful Scottish Borders."

    We hadn’t previously visited the Scottish Borders before but an absolute treat! So many lovely places to visit & the area is just beautiful. Everyone we met was so friendly so made it even more special. Angela our host was welcoming & the cottage was spotlessly clean with all the amenities you could wish for. Would definitely recommend a stay at Bonjedward Mill Farm cottage & the stunning area it is set in. All in all I have been left with wonderful memories of this holiday.

  • "Our stay at Bonjedward Cottage has been fabulous."

    Prior to our stay, communications with the owner were helpful. We arrived to a little hamper of tea, coffee, biscuits and wine which was lovely. The entire house was spotlessly clean and well appointed. The kids loved the variety of games available. The kitchen was very well equipped with lots of crockery. The bedrooms were comfortable and airy. My only complaint would be a soft bed but that's just personal preference. The sofa and easy chairs were comfortable. The garden was lovely and well kept, with a BBQ area, lawn for the kids to play on and a very useful washing line around the corner. We enjoyed watching the tractors go back and forth, busy with their summer work. It is located perfectly for trips up to Edinburgh and down into Northumberland.

    Angela and Colin cannot do enough for you....we travelled with our daughters and they got taken on a tour of the farm and my youngest got to name a cow!! We arrived to a box of chocolates and a lovely bottle of wine which was such a lovely touch. The little details in the cottage are perfect in ensuring your stay is comfortable. Everything has been thought of. My daughters were delighted to find the games cupboard. Jedburgh is the perfect location to visit different areas around the borders and Northumberland. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

    It had great facilities and the kitchen had everything you could possible need to cook. The beds are super comfy and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The walking from the cottage is amazing and it is well located if you wish to go further afield and explore more of the Borders. Everything was thought about to ensure a fabulous break from the welcome pack of goodies to the information available on the area. We very much hope to return and explore more.

    Great location for accessing many of Jedburgh's well signed footpaths straight from the site and a good garden for the dog. Tourist destinations and several golf courses an easy distance. The nearby visitors centre at Harestanes is worth a visit if only for the lovely home-made icecream and Kelso gin!

    We were three adults and three young children and we all loved it. There was plenty of space, good facilities ( though I found the hob a little difficult to operate) and the outside space was loved by all even though it was early January. Our thanks to the owners who came to rescue us when we were very close by but could not find the drive. Would suggest others look for the road sign indicating a junction.

  • "The cottage was excellently presented."

    Spacious and very comfortable. Everything was thought of, kitchen had a large range of cooking utensil and crockery. The level of accommodation was superb, plenty of space, we had 6 people and we never felt like we couldn't get away. Surrounding were lovely, and the lady who owns the cottage was very friendly and nothing would have been too much trouble. My only though would be perhaps a handle in the shower for people who are less confident on their feet but this is in no way a detraction from what was a very lovely cottage, in a beautiful setting.

  • "A lovely well presented cottage, so much bigger than the photos show (which do not do the property justice)."

    We had a lovely week, didn’t need for anything in the cottage and a very lovely welcome pack on arrival which came in very handy. In a lovely peaceful area with the town just a few minutes away if needed. Angela and Colin the owners are lovely and on site if needed. Both had lots of patience explaining about the workings on the farm and talking to the kids about the animals. Although Colin may have been slightly harassed by our eldest feeding the lambs as he was popping out every two minutes on an evening waiting. Loved listening to the animals on a morning, which even with the windows open slightly didn’t disturb us. All in all we’ve had a lovely week there and already considering booking again. Would definitely recommend to others.

The property

Set on the owner's working farm, just 1.5 miles from Jedburgh Abbey, is this beautiful detached cottage in the small hamlet of Bonjedward.

Previously a mill workers cottage, the exterior is wrapped in green fields where the livestock are left to graze and the views stretch as far as Hume.

The interior has been thoughtfully restored making good use of the space, having previously been two separate cottages.

The two staircases link the two floors and provide hours of fun for hide-and-seekers.

This family-friendly cottage offers three bedrooms for a quality rest away from home; the first is a king-size room, followed by a twin, and a lovely Jack-and-Jill room comes next with two single beds - a great option for the kids.

On the ground floor you have the choice of a shower room or a gleaming white bathroom to wake up to.

A wonderfully appointed kitchen is placed at the entrance of the accommodation, with sleek black tiles and granite worktops showcasing a lovely set of fitted units.

Just off from the kitchen, the dining room is uplifted by a woodburning stove - perfect for those chillier evenings gathered for dinner.

The sitting room houses a second woodburner and comfortable seating arranged with a minimalist design, adjoining the utility to the rear.

Pour yourselves a refreshing beverage and relax among the farmland setting as the glow from the fire warms your feet.

Enjoy the evening sunshine out on the patio and let the dog run around on the immaculate lawn - fully enclosed for your convenience.

Jedburgh boasts charming shops, pubs and restaurants to entertain nearby, as well as Jedburgh Castle Jail, Mary Queen of Scots House and the imposing abbey, which towers over the town and dates back to 1138.

The Borders offer spectacular walking and cycling over breathtaking hillsides.

Kelso and Peebles are just a short drive away and across the English border is Northumberland National Park, a fantastic day out with further walking and outdoor activities.

This lovely mill farm cottage is to be enjoyed the year-round.
