  • "Great cottage, had absolutely everything in it we needed."

    Was clean and comfortable. The welcome biscuits, wine, fudge, sweets and milk were such a lovely surprise. A great place to stay, would highly recommend. The owners Angela and Colin were lovely. We loved seeing the sheep outside. The only thing we thought was missing was a smart TV, for the days when the weather is bad, you’ve played games and want to relax with a choice of programmes.

  • "Booked this last minute getaway and what a lovely 3 night stay we had."

    A beautiful secluded location on a friendly and welcoming working farm. The cottage is really nice, cosy, warm and very clean and has lots of little touches that made it feel very homely. The welcome gifts were also a lovely touch. The fully enclosed garden was much appreciated by our dog too! We have stayed in many places in the UK and I have to say this is one of our favourite stays! We will definitely be back :). The most memorable moments had to be, that we witnessed and photographed a beautiful display of the northern lights on all 3 nights, from the comfort of our doorstep of the cottage! Thank you again for a great weekend!

    We had a very busy week exploring both Scotland & Northumberland, it was great to get back to the cottage, cook a meal in the fabulously kitted out kitchen. We then found plenty of comfy spots for reading or TV viewing, followed by a good nights rest in the comfortable beds. Really appreciated the Welcome pack & Welcome from the lovely owner. Highly recommend staying here, you won’t be disappointed!

    More a house than a cottage with four bedrooms, two sitting rooms and two staircases, and two bath/shower rooms. It was cold weather when we stayed, about 5 degrees, but the property was very cosy. Equipped and decorated to a very high standard. The very nice welcome pack was much appreciated, we forgot to mention this to the owner when we spoke to her. I can't think of how it could be any better than it is. We will be going back, probably several times. Our dog loved it also.

  • "We had a lovely week staying at Bonjedward Farm Mill."

    The cottage was very comfortable and really well equipped. There was just 2 of us and a dog so we had lots of space but it would be comfortable for a large family or 2 small families. We were there during a very cold week where it got down to -5C at night but we were still cosy sitting in the living room with the wood burner lit. The owners were very friendly and there if you needed them. It is a working farm and it would be great for children to see the sheep and cows up close. There is a large private garden which is ample for dogs or children to play. We didn’t use the outdoor space due to the weather but I can imagine it would be lovely to sit out there on a summers evening. Lots of local walks, along with plenty to do within an hours drive. Holy Island at Lindisfarne and walks at Kielder Forest were a couple of our favourites. If we were to explore the Scottish Borders again we would not hesitate in rebooking this cottage.

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.
