The first door on the right leads to the charming king-size bedroom, with a pretty armchair and plenty of hanging space in here you'll have no trouble settling down after a busy day, while the gleaming shower room lies opposite where you can feel refreshed with a morning rinse.

Continue down the hall to find the handy utility room, home to all your laundry needs ideal for longer stays, before coming to the lovely single bedroom with a window offering an abundance of light and looking out to the rear of the property.

Spend time with your nearest and dearest in the welcoming warmth of the open-plan living space, with an electric fire adding a homely feel as you snuggle on the sofas watching a film on TV, while your evening meal simmers on the hob, with the kitchen boasting all you need for a self-catered stay, before cracking open a bottle of wine and sitting down to dine at the dining area.

If you're celebrating a special occasion or simply want a night off from cooking then head to one of the several excellent restaurants and pubs in town for some delicious food, with The Carters Rest, The Canon and Simply Scottish being local favourites.

Browse the lovely local shops for some Scottish souvenirs to take home with you, and sample some of the excellent local produce from businesses like Briggsy's Butchers adding to the ingredients for a Sunday roast during your stay.

History enthusiasts will adore the many places to visit in Jedburgh, starting with Mary Queen of Scots House and Visitor Centre which rests practically on your doorstep, telling the story of Mary's life and her month long stay in this 16th Century tower house sitting within attractive gardens, home to some of Jedburgh's famous pear trees.

Everything is within walking distance so you can stroll down to the grand and imposing Jedburgh Abbey, built over the course of more than 70 years, it's a striking piece of Gothic architecture, with a recreated cloister garden to explore as well as birds eye views from the walkways overlooking several of the ruined buildings, it's a stunning sight to behold.
