This stunning farmhouse near Jedburgh is set in a secluded spot surrounded by acres of countryside perfect for long walks with your four-legged friend. Inside, it is beautifully furnished in a traditional style and has a fabulously large garden with a river nearby – ideal for fishing or paddling on warm days. Sleeping eight guests across four bedrooms, this is a truly idyllic place for a group of friends or a family and their canine companion to relax and enjoy the varied attractions of the Scottish Borders.
Inside, this picturesque farmhouse is just as you would expect, with relaxed decor in tasteful, neutral tones interspersed with splashes of colour. On your arrival, you will be welcomed by a bottle of wine and perhaps some local eggs or a cake from the thoughtful owner. The spacious, traditional kitchen with its large dining table is a wonderful place to sit and socialise, and your four-pawed pal will soon make the warm Aga his favourite spot for a snooze. In the evening, retreat to the large lounge, which, with its open fire and comfy sofas, will soon have everyone dozing off after a day out in the fresh air.
As well as plenty of lovely walks straight from the door, the farmhouse is well-placed to visit some of the many local historic towns and sights. Just 20 minutes' drive away are the impressive ruins of Jedburgh Abbey (8 miles). Enjoy a stroll around the abbey before heading into Jedburgh for lunch. Slightly further afield is the lovely town of Kelso (17 miles), home to the stunning Floors Castle and Gardens. Your canine companion will love a frolic around the extensive grounds and gardens of this elegant estate. Or, for a great family day out, nearby Harestanes Countryside Visitor Centre (5 miles) offers scenic walks, a play area for children, and a doggy-friendly cafe.
