About Keith & Nicole Scott
We are Keith, Nicole, Freya & Robby Scott. Heron Cottage is our holiday home in the gorgeous Scottish Borders. We bought the cottage as it is close to Keith's family and when we're not visiting the Borders, we rent out the cottage - we are very proud to have received visitors from all over the World! We love walking into the village of Melrose to eat at the many brilliant pubs and restaurants, followed by a stroll around the lovely gift shops. Just a few minutes walk from the cottage is the famous River Tweed where Freya and Robby spend hours combing for treasure along the shore - in warmer weather we often take a picnic down to the river. For us, staying at Heron Cottage is a brilliant way to escape our busy lives in Manchester.
Keith & Nicole Scott purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Keith & Nicole Scott chose Melrose
We regard Heron Cottage as our home because we enjoy staying here too.....we think we have thought of everything needed to make it a true home. We decorate and upgrade on a very regular basis to keep the Cottage looking clean, tasteful and welcoming - we appreciate guests choosing to spend their holiday at Heron Cottage and want them to be completely happy and relaxed throughout their stay.
What makes this Cottage unique
We fell in love with Heron Cottage at first sight! A quaint, cosy cottage that was once upon a time the local village store with just 2 rooms! It has been extended over the years and we think it makes the perfect holiday cottage - full of character and steeped in history.

Heron Cottage, Newstead, Scotland
Heron Cottage was an absolutely wonderful and lovely place to harbor. We greatly enjoyed our time in this 18th century home and it gave us a feel of what it might be like to live there:) We would definitely recommend Heron Cottage, and all it's conveniences to nearby Melrose and many nearby attractions. Also, a nice, quiet neighborhood. Simply magical.
It was easy to feel at home in this cottage. The bathroom and kitchen are modern, the sitting room cozy, beds are comfortable. We recommend this property.
Beautifully renovated cottage in the Scottish Borders.
Lovely cottage. Warm, cosy, immaculate. Loved the bathroom. Car parking in the street just outside. The cottage is a 20 minute walk from Melrose and we walked into town along the Tweed riverbank and then back along the road. Interesting walks nearby. Only downsides - the ceiling height in the bedrooms is low and you really need a car as there are no shops or pubs in Newstead. For a quiet break in the Scottish Borders, this cottage is really good value for money. We would definitely go back.
Lovely wee cottage nicely decorated.
Very good facilities. Good location for Melrose and Kelso.
Lovely stay in very comfortable cottage
3rd visit to Heron Cottage. Had a very relaxing and comfortable stay. The cottage has everything you need and is exceptionally clean. If you want to have meals in there are good cooking facilities.
Pre visit contact with the owners was very good with clear instructions of key collection etc.
The cottage is well situated for exploring the Borders. Borders railway 5-10mins drive away is an easy way to get in to Edinburgh.
Thank you for a lovely stay.
