The local bookshop and cafe a real treat. Cottage immaculate, warm and cozy. Garden well kept. Easy to walk the dog on footpaths along the Tweed.
"A lovely stay in Blinkbonny Cottage starting with a welcoming note from the owner."
Attractive decor and such a good feel to the house. Everything in good working order and spotlessly clean. The cottage is right in the heart of the friendly village. Direct access to St Cuthbert’s Way. We particularly appreciated the ease of contact with the owner when we weren’t sure how to put on the heating. Well placed for interest and visitor attractions including Dryburgh Abbey. Very good local shops and a restaurant within easy walking distance.

Well double glazed and much less traffic than expected. We explored many of the smaller roads in the area and the scenery was stunning as were the historical ruins.

"Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location."
Really enjoyed my stay here.
"The cottage was everything you could ask for - great location lovely little house and very cosy with a really super open fire."
The kitchen was very well fitted out and the bedroom had a view over the village rooftops to the countryside beyond. The beds were very comfortable too. My only comment would be a reminder that there are stairs- the bathroom is upstairs and there is a rather high step to the kitchen! Personal plea to ALL holiday cottages - please provide higher chairs.
"This is a lovely cottage, well presented and very comfortable."
I can highly recommend a stay here.
"Really enjoyed our holiday at Blinkbonny Cottage , St Boswells."
The cottage was spottlessly clean and comfortable , with a lovely sitting area in the back garden and although on Main Street it was quiet and sheltered . St Boswells is a lovely place to stay, a quiet village that had a good deli and book shop and we had enjoyable meals at both the local restaurant and hotel restaurant.

"This is a lovely little cottage right in the heart of St Boswells and is an ideal location for seeing the Border area."
We booked Blinkbonny cottage as we had a wedding to attend in the local church a short walk away. We were very impressed with the presentation of the cottage which was very very clean and although small had been very well done.

This delightful mid 19th century end-terrace cottage is situated in the charming town of St Boswells in the Scottish Borders.
This beautifully styled cottage which accommodates up to three people is a couple of minutes walk from the centre of the village.
The entrance leads into a spacious sitting room centred on a lovely open fireplace and the entrance to the kitchen is at the rear of the sitting room up one step.
Looking out over the rear patio area, the kitchen has a charming cottage feel and a dining area which will seat four.
Upstairs is a comfy king-size double bedroom which can be a 2'6" twin room on request.
There is also a single bedroom as well as a comfortable bathroom.
The rear patio is up four steps and has a couple of seating areas where you can sit and relax with a refreshing drink after a busy day exploring the area.

A short stroll brings you into the centre of St Boswells, an attractive town with the River Tweed flowing past it and with lovely walks along its banks.
This is an ideal location from which to explore the historic Scottish Borders, from its dramatic Reivers past to its status today as an excellent area for walking, cycling, fishing and touring castles, historic Abbeys and viewing wildlife.
You can also catch the train to Edinburgh from Tweedbank station which is a 15 minute drive away.
A lovely comfortable cottage offering an attractive break whatever the time of year.

About the location
Melrose 5 miles; Kelso 10 miles.
St Boswells sits on the south of the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders. There is much evidence of Roman occupation, dating from almost two thousand years ago. Today, St Boswells is known for being on the route of St Cuthbert’s Way, the long distance path from Melrose Abbey to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. The village boasts a hotel, café, several shops, post office, butcher and a garage. As well as spectacular salmon and brown trout fishing on the River Tweed, the local riverside walks take in attractive scenery. An ideal venue for walkers and cyclists, St Boswells is surrounded by the gorgeous Borders landscape. If you want to venture further afield, Edinburgh is approximately an hour away, as is the Berwickshire coast.
