The pictures online do not do this place justice and I would highly recommend anyone to visit this beautiful little place just lovely. We are definitely going to go back as soon as we can. Matt & Lucy were the perfect hosts and even had the teapot and muffins ready for our arrival which was greatly welcomed after the snow we encountered on the way up :-)

The magnificent 12th century Augustinian Abbey dominates the town and there are a numerous restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea.

Nestled below The Cheviots just south of Jedburgh, the cottages are in an area of peace and tranquillity surrounded by rolling countryside, part of the farm is in a conservation scheme to encourage ground nestling birds, explore on foot and meander up to one of the many ponds to watch the local wildlife including buzzards, deer and badgers or walk one of the farm trails

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.
