    “Compact, but had everything a couple will need for a comfortable stay in a lovely part of the country.”

    We found it an ideal base for touring the Scottish Borders and Northumberland. In speaking to the owners (only been there 4 months), they have great plans to upgrade the accommodation over the winter, but we found it already very homely. Would stop again if we found ourselves taking a break in the locality, which is really our own judgement of quality and our best possible recommendation to others.

The property

A cosy, detached cottage nestled within the grounds of the owners' guest house on the outskirts of Jedburgh in the beautiful Scottish Borders.

Originally the stable block, this cottage has been thoughtfully converted to provide comfortable accommodation for a couple wishing to explore this popular part of Scotland.

The ground floor of the spacious interior features contemporary open-plan living accommodation with a kitchen, dining area and comfortable sitting area, along with French doors opening out onto a lovely courtyard.

Here, you can sit out at the table with a glass of wine or a chilled beer and enjoy the open outlook across the hills.

Resting within the owners' grounds with flourishing gardens for the guest house adjacent are a pleasant place to unwind.

A short walk down the hill brings you into the pleasant town of Jedburgh.

Only ten miles from the English border and famed for its abbey and its substantial ruins which dominate the town, Jedburgh is also home to Mary, Queen of Scots' house and Jedburgh Castle Jail, now a museum which you can explore at your own leisure.

With Jed Water, a tributary of the Teviot, and circular walks easily accessed from your front door, there is something for everyone at this delightful cottage.

About the location

JEDBURGH

Kelso 12 miles; Melrose 13 miles; Peebles 37 miles.

The historic town of Jedburgh is a small, quiet town lying 10 miles inside the Scottish Border, situated halfway between Newcastle upon Tyne and Edinburgh. Set amidst the stunning countryside of the Borders, Jedburgh has much to offer visitors. There are charming shops, pubs and award-winning, family-run restaurants to enjoy nearby, as well as historic attractions such as the fascinating Jedburgh Castle Jail, Mary Queen of Scots House and the imposing abbey, which towers over the town and dates back to 1138. Great fishing can be enjoyed on the Teviot, Tweed and Jed Rivers and there are 21 excellent golf courses to choose from. The Borders also offer some superb walking and cycling over breathtaking hillsides or amongst the enchanting Border Forests, and along St Cuthbert's Way, a 62 mile trail between Melrose and Lindisfarne, which passes Harestanes Countryside Visistor Centre. The towns of Melrose, Kelso and Peebles are just a short drive away and are a joy to explore at leisure.
