    On a secluded farm at the end of its own road, it is very quiet apart from the sheep and cows. Bird’s Nest is simply the best-equipped holiday home we’ve ever stayed in, and we’ve been using Sykes for 11 years. Wendy and Willie are the perfect hosts, and the wonderful welcome pack was a bit like a treasure hunt - every time we opened a cupboard we found something else! The farm is perfectly located to visit many of the local towns, we went to Jedburgh, Kelso, Galashiels, Melrose and Hawick. If you want to go a little further afield we also had a day in Edinburgh and a day on Lindisfarne. All in all, a lovely holiday in a lovely cottage. I’m sure we’ll be back next year.

The property

Positioned on a quiet rural lane at the end of its own private driveway, surrounded by rolling green pastures, is this detached farmer's cottage with fabulous views over the Cheviot Hills but only 5 minutes from the A68.

You are completely surrounded by nature on a working farm, with the nearest amenities being a 15-minute drive away in the historic town of Jedburgh and 20-minutes drive from Kelso and Hawick.

Simply park up outside, unpack your bags and feel completely relaxed in a natural setting.

It is ideal for couples or a family of four, offering a large king-size bed with zip-and-link beds and a double room upstairs, giving you options for sleeping arrangements.

They each come with bedside tables, curtains and ample storage space, making you feel right at home.

Back downstairs is the bathroom, with a shower over the bath tub and heated towel rail, tied together with a neutral choice of décor.

The lounge offers a lovely cosy feel, with a beamed ceiling and a charming woodburner set within a stone surround.

Crack open a bottle of wine, stream your favourite movies on the Smart TV and fully relax away your time surrounded by the warmth of your loved ones.

Cook up a storm in the contemporary kitchen and get together around the dining table arranged pleasantly in the middle of the room.

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.
