Situated where it is the coast , Bamburgh Castle, Alnwick Castle, Seahouses are just over an, Hour away. Hadrians Wall can be reached in An Hour and fourty mins, Flodden fields, Ford and Etal and Heatherlaw Mill well worth a look. All in all a quiet retreat well maintained,

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful 3 nights in this lovely cottage."

    Cannot fault it in any way, it is deceptively spacious, finished to a very high standard and feels really homely. The location is so peaceful yet only a couple of minutes from all the amenities of Jedburgh. We hope to come back again!

    Hi Mark Thank you so much for your kind comments, it’s great to know you enjoyed your holiday and really liked what we done. The Byre is now in its second year from being somewhere that we used as storage to what it is now. We’re so pleased with how it’s turned out and most importantly love that our guests really enjoy their stay. It’s lovely seeing it used. Thank you again Take care Jim & Sharon Property Owner

    The Old Byre is beautiful and decorated to perfection. The views are stunning and the cottage is in an ideal location to explore the Scottish Borders. The hosts have thought of everything and included a lovely welcome pack on arrival. Would highly recommend

  • "We had a fantastic time at The Byre, the accommodation was amazing and really suitable for any wheelchair user."

    My only criticism is that there are no grab rails at the toilet or shower, and no shower seats. As I try to be as independent as I can I had to rely on my husband to assist me. But this honestly was the best accommodation we have stayed in, because of my disability we only holiday in the UK so have stayed in lots of cottages, but none have been anywhere near the standard of The Byre.

    We’re so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday in the Byre and you found it wheelchair friendly throughout. Its important to us that our guests enjoy their stay and have a relaxing time in the company of their friends/family while on holiday. I can only apologise regarding the shower chair but on a positive note this is something we can ask if this maybe a requirement by our future guests, so thank you for your input. Thanks you for coming Property Owner

    Everything was perfect from the lovely welcome pack to the design of the cottage including the underfloor heating which kept the place sooo cosy and the lovely country walks right from the door step- the dog loved it too. We'd highly recommend this place and won't hesitate to return.

    Thank you so much Gillian. We are delighted that you enjoyed the Byre and it’s surroundings. We would delighted to see you all again. Take Care Jim & Sharon Property Owner

    The Byre is perfectly set up for a cosy stay but with plenty space inside and out. We loved our dog friendly stay and will hopefully get to stay again! Delighted to be left a very kind welcome pack for ourselves and our dog. Nothing like relaxing at the fire in Autumn.

  • "Wow, the Byre exceeded our expectations as this is the best cottage we have stayed in."

    Beautifully decorated and furnished throughout which is fully equipped to meet every need for your holiday. Ample space for four people which offers an exceptional place to stay. Absolutely loved the spacious walk in shower rooms and walk in wardrobes. The thoughtful welcome pack was also very much appreciated and reflects the attention to detail provided by the property owners and hosts Sharon and Jim. The Byre cottage offers a welcome retreat with gorgeous views and is the best place to stay for exploring the Scottish Borders. Alternatively if you want a restful place where you can 'chill', relax and recharge your batteries, the Byre is the place to book. Would highly recommend and we will certainly return. Thank you to Sharon and Jim

    The owners were very welcoming and always on hand for issues and information.

  • "The Old Byre is a beautifully converted barn which the owners have done proud in it's development ."

    Based on the outskirts of the border town of Jedburgh in the middle of very peaceful farm land with lots of wildlife, yet only 20mins walk into the town centre it is a ideal for the perfect quiet break. It is also a dog owners delight with lots of walks in the area. The cottage a spacious with plenty of light, furnished to an excellent standard throughout. We are both looking forward to coming back in 2021, on a final note the hosts Jim and Sharon left a most generous welcome pack and even some treats for our dog Jack, a great example of how to welcome old and new guests to a property and presents the "Goodwill" factor. 10/10 for the hosts and the property

  • "Our holiday at the Old Byre in Jedburgh was superb."

    I have given the highest ratings on all questions asked, not because it's easy & quick but because this is how much we enjoyed our time in the Old Byre. My wife, myself and our 20 month daughter had a ball. We were looking forward to it when we saw the photos. And this is what made us know we had booked the right place when we arrived - what you see on the photos is EXACTLY what you get on arrival. Many other places could learn from this fact. We were made to feel welcome from the get go - cheeky we arrival present on the table. On that - the hostess/manager couple are superb. Nothing is a hassle - even stupid requests from years truly on how to operate the wood burning stove (which is a beast in the very best sense of the word). Kirsty and Sandy just added to our enjoyment at the Byre all the more. I'm from the Borders (Peebles) so know the area well. Or so I thought. If you are into cycling there are simply magic wee routes around here - two of Simon Warren's top 100 cycling climbs of Scotland are just a few K's from your door, 1km in the case of one of them. I could go on - Jed has so much history dripping from it, all easily accessible even with a toddler in tow. Plenty of other lovely wee towns close by too for days out. Quick wee mention for the B6357 too. Petrol-heads or cyclists - do yourselves a favour - if you've not driven it or peddled it do it, it rocks almost as much as the Old Byre does. We will return to The Old Byre and cannae wait.
