    Our little boy is mad about tractors and so they gave us a tour of the farm and even allowed us to sit in the cab of the combine harvester. Beautiful location and lots to explore in the Tweed valley.

  • "We had such a cosy and fun week at Craggs Cottage."

    My kids loved a wee taste of life on the farm and the owners went out of their way to make it nice for us, with even a fruit loaf to welcome us. We have never been to the Borders and loved exploring the local area, will definitely be back to see some more of it. Beautiful area!

  • "The cottage is in a beautiful, peaceful spot, is super comfy and our dog loved the fields surrounding plus the large enclosed garden."

    Wonderful, welcoming host who provided all we needed and more. Lots to see and do locally with scope to strike out further also into the Scottish lowlands which we did on a day trip. Have returned home chilled and rested. Thankyou!

  • "Craggs cottage was the best cottage we have ever stayed in."

    It was so comfortable and spotlessly clean. The beds provided ultimate comfort and the bedding and towels were like new. The garden was perfect too, well maintained and ideal for our dog. The views from the windows and the garden were stunning and we enjoyed watching the sheep. Kirsty welcomed us as we settled in, she was so kind and helpful, such a lovely lady, she had baked us a delicious fruit cake which we enjoyed with our first cup of tea, she certainly is a very good cake baker. I would highly recommend Craggs cottage, it is perfect.

  • "A very friendly host and family who love to show you the farm and give suggestions of things to do."

    The only downside is the WiFi is temperamental which could be a negative to some. I do not think the photos do justice of how lovely and big the cottage is and how pretty the surrounding area is. Would highly recommend and go back in future.

About the location


Jedburgh 14 miles; Wooler 16 miles.

Kelso is a lovely tranquil Borders town at the meeting point of the Tweed and Teviot rivers, with a cobbled town square and streets, and an array of stunning Georgian buildings, and a wealth of gorgeous countryside around it. Take time out to visit Floors Castle, a very prominent Stately Home with restaurants and gardens, designed by William Adam. Also close by are Mellerstain House, Kelso Abbey and the Kelso races. Mellerstain House is a stunning example of Georgian architecture at its finest. Designed by the architect William Adam and his son Robert in 1725, it is the residence of the 13th Earl of Haddington. The house is located within 80 acres of luscious rolling parkland and is in walking distance of Smailholm Tower, the ancestral home of Sir Walter Scott. Great fishing can be enjoyed on the Teviot, Tweed and Jed rivers and there are many excellent golf courses to choose from. Watch the spectacular and historic Common Ridings, held at Kelso, Hawick, Selkirk, Langholm, Lauder and others, with long histories. The Borders also offer some superb walking and cycling, be it on the coast, over the breathtaking hillsides or amongst the enchanting Border forests. The towns of Coldstream, Jedburgh, Kirk Yetholm and Wooler are just a short drive away and are a joy to explore at leisure.
