2 Bedroom, 120 year old stone built cottage with Moorland views.
Why Owner chose Hawick
This cottage is so restful, even after a weekend there you feel so relaxed. It is so different to the busy lives everyone leads nowadays that it provides a real tonic for the soul. A great opportunity for family or friends to spend some prime time together.
What makes this Cottage unique
Merrylaw is set in upper Teviotdale and the cottage enjoys wonderful views down the valley as well as across the hills. The stream running below the cottage plays its own restful music, chattering over the rocks on its way to join the mighty Tweed. Sometimes you can see otters looking for a meal, or, in the winter, the salmon are there at the end of their epic journey, to spawn and create the next generation of salmon parr. In late spring, usually May, the sheep are lambing out on the hill and you see the young lambs gambolling about with their comical antics. All through the year there are pheasants strutting about and calling to each other. Merrylaw Cottage is good for the soul and gives us a reality check when we are so close to nature.

Get away from it all
This is the third year in a row we have been to Merrylaw which speaks for itself. A great rustic base to either stay & chill in, or explore the Borders. Lots to see nearby but the tranquilty & views from the cottage are amazing. Always had great communication with owner & those involved. Looking forward to staying next year
Merrylaw is a magical cosy cottage! which meets all our needs and expectations, clean comfortable warm and cosy and set in an area of outstanding beauty with wonderful breathtaking views in all directions, a peaceful and remote location to reinvigorate your soul, and only twenty minutes from Hawick for all your shopping needs and good eating out if required.
Ian was very helpful and friendly with very clear direction and information regarding our stay,plus thanks to Pauline who was so friendly and welcoming.
We will be returning Merrylaw as we view the cottage as one of our favorites in the borders, many thanks to Ian and his team.
