  • "An excellent cottage, beautifully furnished and in a lovely tranquil setting."

  • "The hide was very cosy."

    It was perfect for me, my partner and the dog. There was a great enclosed garden and a 2 acre paddock to walk the dog. Very relaxing, chilled out holiday.

  • "Whilst the property was clean and tidy, there was no washing machine on site which is not really satisfactory for a self catering let."

    More concerning is the £100 good housekeeping bond which was transferred to the owners bank account as requested however 14 days have now passed and we have been unable to contact the owners to arrange return of this money and we have had no feedback from them regarding how satisfied they were with our stay

    The hide is beautiful with the open plan living space creating a light, airy daytime atmosphere and a cosy evening setting to watch the glorious sunsets and enjoy the fabulous log burner. The hide is located in a relatively remote position, surrounded by lovely countryside and is right on the Southern Upland Way, so it's perfect for walking. The small town of Duns is only 6 miles away and is convenient for food shopping. One of the highlights of our stay was the trip to nearby St Abb's Head with its stunning coastal scenery.

We were on holiday so not a big deal. Bedding clean and comfortable. Covered carparking bay. Great for loading and unloading our stuff. Definitely a plus in the rain. Also when making enquiries about equipment and facilities in the property, the owners were super fast in responding.

    Extremely comfortable and well equipped and very cosy. With undfloor heating in the bathroom and kitchen. Beautiful garden. Very quiet and tranquil. We spent a wonderful week at this property. The only couple of things I would bring to anyone’s attention is the kitchen sink is right in a corner and does make washing up quite difficult!!!!. The other is the parking of the car as very narrow lane. There is parking under the hide for two cars but quite a difficult manoeuvre because of the narrowness of the path and the main wooden pillar of the hide. The owner Scott was very helpful and accommodating . A great location for anyone who wishes to go into Northumberland as we did . Visited Cragside and Bamburgh castle. Lots of up to date information on places to visit which are up to date.

  • "An absolute gem!"

    , the Hide is ideally located in a lovely tranquil setting but still close enough to all amenities. The accommodation is imaginative and quirky with many fascinating features both inside and outside. Pop Larkin would describe it as "Purfik".

The property

WINNER of the Sykes Gems award Gold Best in Scotland 2017 & 2018.

Duns 6 miles.

Set in an idyllic rural location offering total relaxation, this studio-style apartment is in the Lammermuir Hills, right on the final section of the Southern Upland Way, 6 miles north of Duns in the Scottish Borders.

Driving along the country lanes between streams and woodland you will soon feel the stress seeping away from your shoulders and as you pass through the estate's Victorian lodge gates, you can’t fail to be impressed by their grandeur.

Kidcleugh Hide is the perfect destination for a romantic break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The first floor is all open plan, a bright and airy studio room filled with bespoke handcrafted wooden furniture, fur throws, cushions and mood lighting.

There is a bedroom, sitting and dining area with exposed timber beams, large windows and a woodburner to add to the luxury that exudes throughout.

French doors lead from the living area to the decking, a perfect spot to relax at any time of day looking over the fields and woods below spotting deer, pheasants, and hares.

On the ground floor there is a shower room and a compact kitchenette.

The dark skies around Kidcleugh Hide come alive at night so wrap up in a blanket, sit back and marvel at the sky above peppered with thousands of stars while listening to the owls hooting from the nearby owl and lodge woods as well as the estate's own RSPB owl house.

If you can bear to leave this romantic retreat there is plenty of walking and cycling from the doorstep, the Northumberland coastline and Edinburgh are an easy drive away and with Duns just six miles south.

Kidcleugh Hide is a perfect base for touring the Borders and North Northumberland.

About the location

DUNS

Berwick-upon-Tweed 15 miles.

The small border town of Duns is set in a wide valley known as The Merse and was once the capital of the Scottish Borders, when the current capital, Berwick-upon-Tweed, was under English rule. The town offers a good range of shops, including an award-winning butchers and quality delicatessen, pubs and restaurants, whilst the Jim Clark Museum is open to the public in honour of the famous racing driver who lived in the area. Duns Castle sits within a nature reserve with well-marked woodland lakeside walks through the castle estate. There are many castles and historic houses scattered throughout the surrounding area, including Manderston House (home of Lord Palmer), Floors Castle and Gardens, the largest inhabited house in Scotland, Norham Castle situated on the River Tweed, Mellerstain House and Paxton House and Country Park. A short drive to the east coast offers the opportunity to explore the dog friendly beaches at Coldingham or for the more adventurous why not learn to surf at the local surf school. Widely acclaimed golfing is available at Duns and nearby Dunbar whilst fishing for trout and salmon on the Tweed and Whiteadder River is also available with permits available locally. The nearby walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed is well worth a visit with weekly markets, town trails and a cinema. A short hop to Eyemouth to feed the resident harbour seals, enjoy award-winning fish and chips or take a boat trip for some coastal exploration. The sights and excitement of Edinburgh are just 45 miles away and numerous other destinations are within a short driving distance of this fantastic location providing a great base at any time of the year for exploring the beautiful Scottish Border region and the picturesque, exhilarating North Northumberland regions.
