  • “A lovely little flat, handy for everything.”

    Bus stop across the road. Bathroom needs upgrading, and windows were single glazed, with 2 damaged panes. Flat was very clean, and we enjoyed the box of shortbread

Harmony Cottages

A collection of three wondrous properties resting in the Scottish Borders' town of Melrose, centred around the beautiful Harmony Garden, owned by the National Trust for Scotland. Comprising three separate properties, including Harmony House, nestled within the walls of Harmony Garden; Harmony Cottage, positioned adjacent to Melrose Abbey; and finally Pear Cottage, above a local craft shop and overlooking National Trust for Scotland’s Priorwood Garden. Each property offers its own unique outlook, with equally impressive interiors, as well as being within a stone's throw of each other, making a great choice for an escape with all of your loved ones. Harmony Garden itself is a tranquil setting comprising lawns, herbaceous and mixed borders, vegetable and fruit plots, and a rich display of spring bulbs, creating a wonderful aura to enjoy all year round. Enjoy exploring this idyllic setting and delight in purchasing fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables from Harmony Garden itself when available, great for adding to the ingredients of your self-catered cooking, with lots more to be found in the heart of Melrose. Visit the Country Kitchen in Market Square, offering a deli, bakery and winery stocking a great range of local produce, or visit the farmer's market in Kelso, around 15 miles away, on the last Saturday morning of every month. The St Cuthbert's Way begins in Melrose and spans 62 miles all the way to Lindisfarne, while the Eildon Hills are accessible right from the town centre, and a pleasant riverside stroll along the River Tweed is always a delightful choice. Visit the stunning ruins of Melrose Abbey, dating back to the 14th century and now home to a museum, as well as the National Trust for Scotland’s Priorwood Garden, where you can find beautiful flora and fauna, and even 90 different types of apples. Venture out of town to the imposing Abbotsford, the home of Sir Walter Scott, who was a playwright, novelist and poet. A trip to the charming and historic town of Jedburgh is a must too, with its own abbey, or find even more National Trust for Scotland wonder at Robert Smail's Printing Works in Innerleithen, a living museum of Victorian history boasting plenty of excitement and an educational day out for all of the family, with the oldest working commercial letterpress printers in the UK. Relish in a scenic and elegant stay with your loved ones in the Scottish Borders at Harmony Cottages.
