Amazing find in the Borders
The pics don't do the house justice : this place is stunning! There was loads of room for two adults, two kids & a dog and Bailey our Beagle even had his own towel & water bowl waiting for him when we arrived. The furnishings and decor are extremely stylish & both rooms had a large ensuite with shower (with one also having a large bath).
Everything was spotlessly clean and it was handy to have a good washing machine & dryer.
The owners were just around the corner if we needed them and the local pub (The Blackadder) served great food and a cracking pint of Guinness. Just watch tho as it wasn't open on a Monday & Tuesday, and if you need an alternative the Gordon Arms is just 5 minutes away in the car which also serves great food and (like the Blackadder) is dog and child friendly.
As far as walking goes, you cn pretty much choose a direction and go for it! There was a wee book in the house full of lovely walks (none more than 20mins in the car) and from it we enjoyed a walk over the cliffs in St Abbs followed by a cracking fit supper in Eyemouth, a wander along the Tweed to the Hirsel in Coldsteam and a walk through the forests around Duns Castle.
If you need a short trip away to recharge the batteries which is a comfortable drive from Glasgow/Edinburgh/Newcastle, this is definitely it. Awesome!!
This cottage has been beautifully renovated and decorated to a very high standard. We loved the retro feel to the furnishings and the cottage is spotless throughout. The outside courtyard style area has the afternoon and evening sun on it and is a great space to relax in the quiet surroundings. The photos accurately portrait the property which is in an excellent location for exploring the wider Borders region. We would certainly recommend a stay here if you are visiting the area.
