  • "Such a great cottage in a lovely setting."

    So well equipped and comfortable - we loved our extended stay and are looking forward to our next stay already. The owner, Mark, was super helpful, friendly and approachable and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended.

  • "The cottage was spacious inside and was fitted out to a modern standard, with all the facilities we needed and more."

    It was a nice to find some welcome gifts of food and drink on arrival, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Externally, there is a private garden area, which had great views of the surrounding area and provided ample space for both the family/dog to enjoy. Makes for a great base to explore the surrounding area from.

  • "Was a lovely, lovely place."

    Came with my partner, mum, two children and dog for my 30th birthday and it was a gorgeous place. Would definitely come back and recommend.

  • "Well equipped."

    Obviously a lot of thought went into what visitors need. We preferred the chairs with backs to the benches at the table and that freed a bench to act as a table in front of the settee. It's a lovely setting. Lanton is a delightful village, lovely cottages and gardens to admire and much entertainment to be had in the notices at the old bus stop. Some serving spoons and an extra veggie bowl for the table would have been icing on the cake.

    Immaculately presented with everything we could possibly want/need. The location is stunning and to top it all a lovely welcome basket. Can't rate highly enough and we will definitely be back!

  • "Lovely house with particularly nice bedrooms , especially the main bedroom ."

    Welcome pack provided Modern facilities and smart tv in every room is great Wifi very good Kitchen is extremely small so only one person can be in at a time . Although lots of things left for our dog I wouldn’t choose to come here again with my dog . The dog can’t go upstairs and nor can the dog be let off the lead anywhere on property grounds or surrounding areas due to farmers fields . Fine if you have a small / old dog but if you have a springer like me then lead walks don’t really do . I would return to this property but not with my dog .

  • "We very much enjoyed our stay at Borders Cottage and would definitely recommend it to anyone."

    It is tidy, cosy, warm and clean. The rooms are all very nice and enjoyable to be in. The garden is steep, but lovely and big, and includes really dog safe fencing, and nice outdoor seating. And views. We loved the welcome food basket in the kitchen, so thoughtful, and the electric candles in the living area were fun to have, too. It's peaceful here, as well, not much traffic noise in the garden.

    Couple of minor points - there was only half a toilet roll in each bathroom with no spares, and 1 dishwasher tablet. We went out to buy both and it would have been nice if there'd been a little more. That's all though, it was otherwise great!

The property

Tucked away in the idyllic village of Lanton near Jedburgh, Scottish Borders, is this delightful three-bedroom, stone-built cottage, Borders Cottage.

Enjoying a peaceful location with far-reaching countryside views, Borders Cottage is a fantastic family-friendly dwelling for a family of five, plus their two canine companions.

Park-up on the generous driveway with space for five cars, before being greeted by a large garden with vast lawn and an outdoor dining space, perfect for enjoying dinner with a view.

Outside, you will also find a garage, with plenty of storage for bikes and a barbecue for alternative dining arrangements.

Step into the small, yet well-equipped kitchen, featuring a handy dishwasher, where you can whip up delicious feasts for your loved ones, ready to enjoy at the dining table for five.

Nearby, you will find a utility housing a fridge/freezer, washing machine and coffee machine for your convenience.

After dinner, relax in the light and airy sitting room, where you can select a much-loved film from the Smart TV with Netflix, as your pooches take up their favourite spot in front of the crackling multi-fuel stove.

Completing the ground-floor is a well-appointed double bedroom with its own Smart TV with Netflix, served by a beautifully tiled bathroom, perfect for unwinding with a well-deserved soak after a day of exploring.

Climb the stairs up to the first floor, where you will discover two further bedrooms, a spacious super-king-size with en-suite shower room, and a single with trundle, both bedrooms also feature a Smart TV with Netflix, so you can catch up on your morning shows following a leisurely wake-up.

From your holiday home, you can easily enjoy riverside walks and hikes up to the fascinating 15th-century ruins of Timpendean Tower.

Head into the bustling town of Jedburgh, where you will find your local amenities, including a well-stocked convenience store and the welcoming eateries of The Carters Rest, Simply Scottish and the Foresters Arms.

Wander along Jed Water or stop to explore the historic attractions of the 12th-century Jedburgh Abbey, Jedburgh Castle Jail and Museum and the Mary Queen of Scot’s Visitors Centre, providing a fascinating insight into the former 16th-century queens life.

If you can tear yourself away, visit the market town of Kelso, where you will find the remarkable castles of Floors and Roxburgh, as well as the picturesque Lodge Park, Kelso Racecourse and the excellent 18-hole Kelso Golf Club for those wanting to test out their swing whilst on holiday.

Next stop is Melrose, where keen hikers can embark on the scenic 62.5-mile St Cuthberts Way, or if that isn’t your thing, why not explore the delights of the 14th-century Melrose Abbey, the National Trust Priorwood Garden or hook your catch of the day in the nearby Bowden Loch, or River Tweed, well-known for its superb salmon fishing.

Further afield, is Peebles, home to the remarkable Neidpath Castle, the Tweeddale Museum & Gallery, Victoria Park and the Peebles Golf Club.

For all this and more, secure your stay at Borders Cottage.
