  • “Just to say the hosts are magnificent - their attention to detail and the general style of the accommodation probably rates as close to perfection as it's possible to achieve - well done, Pat & Bill - we wanted for absolutely nothing extra while we were there.”

    The views are spectacular, most of the Borders are easily accessible, and with Edinburgh just over an hour's drive, you are ideally located for sightseeing. Highlights probably Abbotsford House, Jedburgh Abbey and Edinburgh Castle, but that isn't to decry all the other attractions, incl Holy Island (watch out for the tides!), which we thoroughly enjoyed.

The property

Swinton 1 mile.

An impressive, large detached bungalow nestling on the hillside a mile above the pretty village of Swinton in the glorious Scottish Borders, next to the owner's working arable farm.

Tastefully appointed throughout to provide spacious, comfortable accommodation of a high standard, this Swinton cottage is perfect for large families or friends wanting to get together in the heart of the Scottish Borders.

All on one level, with stunning views over Swinton and The Cheviots beyond, this Swinton holiday cottage has four spacious bedrooms comprising one super king-size with en-suite bathroom and three super king-size with zip and link beds, allowing for flexible sleeping arrangements.

The pretty kitchen in this Scottish Borders cottage has a dining area and the sitting room is warm and cosy with views to the front of the cottage.

With beautiful wooden flooring, the hallway in your Borders cottage leads you to the light and airy, south-facing conservatory, which spans a large area to the front of your holiday cottage, just the spot to curl up on the sofa with a good book and soak up the views of the Cheviot Hills.

Outside your Scottish Borders cottage is a large patio area with garden furniture, a little sun trap just perfect for getting together and enjoying evening drinks or a barbecue.

The village of Swinton has a first-class pub and restaurant, whilst close by, the delights of Duns, Kelso and Berwick await.

With outstanding golf courses in the area, not to mention cycle routes galore, fishing on the nearby River Tweed, birdwatching and the glorious Heritage Coast with its endless miles of sandy beaches, this is a perfect Borders cottage at any time of the year!

About the location


Coldstream 5 miles; Duns 7 miles; Berwick-upon-Tweed 12 miles; Kelso 13 miles.

The village of Swinton has been a centre for rural activities since the 11th century, but was laid out as it is seen now in the 18th century. It is just 5 miles north of the town of Coldstream, which lies on the banks of one of the best salmon rivers in the country. 7 miles away, Duns was once the main town in the area, and has much history to offer. There are castles and stately homes throughout the Scottish Borders, and much to see and do including golf, fishing and walking. Just a short drive away is the east coast of Scotland with its beautiful beaches, while vibrant Edinburgh can be reached in one hour's drive.
