The property

The Yellow House is a cosy stone cottage situated in the rolling hills of the Scottish Borders, a stunning landscape of woods, fields and winding trails, offering lots of opportunities for rambling walks, scenic hikes and colourful wildlife explorations.

The cottage, with its village location and spacious accommodation over three floors, is ideal for couples, groups of friends, and families looking for a relaxing break in a fascinating part of the country with easy transport links to Edinburgh, Scotland's capital city, as well as the main Border towns and attractions.

Walk into this charming cottage and settle into its warm sitting room with its comfortable sofas and delightful wood burning stove.

Recently refurbished from top to bottom, the house benefits from modern conveniences tastefully integrated into the bucolic countryside atmosphere.

The well-equipped kitchen is a spacious extension to the rear of the property, a bright, high-ceilinged space with several sky lights, which gives access to a beautiful, private back garden with dry stone walls, copious flower beds and an inviting patio area with ample seating and a BBQ. With further views of the great outdoors, both double bedrooms are furnished in a tasteful country style with large beds (one of them a super king which converts to twin beds) and plenty of storage space for clothes and bags to guarantee the general atmosphere of relaxed comfort.

The only thing that has no room here is stress.

The cottage has two toilets, one in the spacious family bathroom with its contemporary design including a large bath and a separate shower, the other tucked away off the downstairs hallway.

Comfort, convenience, culture, you'll find it all here.

About the location


Galashiels 7 miles, Edinburgh 25 miles

The village is located in a beautiful valley leading from the Scottish Borders area up to Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh. The area is steeped in history with the main Borders towns of Galashiels, Melrose and Peebles within easy reach. Here you can enjoy a wide range of pretty cafes, fine restaurants, and art galleries, plus easy access to the many historic castles, stately homes, and fine gardens for which the area is famed. The cottage is ideal for walkers and nature lovers whether you wish to explore the Southern Upland Way or amble along the local streams and trails: walks through woods and over hills start from the front door. The recently opened Borders train line stops at Stow, providing a beautifully scenic route south to Tweedbank or north to Edinburgh, offering the opportunity to enjoy the sites and cultural highlights of Scotland's historic capital city. Edinburgh is a year round attraction with its international festivals of the arts, film and jazz scene, as well as its renowned Royal Tattoo, its German Christmas Market and traditionally Scottish Hogmanay celebration to welcome in the New Year. For those more interested in village life and quiet retreats, Stow offers the best of both worlds: extended hiking and cycling paths, scenic routes to small towns along the river Tweed. In Stow itself, the village shop also acts as the Post Office, adjacent to the wonderful, dog-friendly Cloud Cafe Gallery which provides fresh coffee, tea, delicious home made cakes and snacks, either to sit in or take away.
