This charming stylish detached cottage with wood burner perfect for cosy nights in, is located amid beautiful countryside in the pretty hamlet of Longnewton, within easy reach of great local amenities

Treat the pack to a cosy stay on the Scottish Borders, snuggling down by the fire in this enchanting cottage that’s packed with home comforts and doggy delights. If Fido isn’t snoozing by the wood burner, he’ll be having a ball outside, sniffing out wonderful adventures across the beautiful surrounding countryside. The friendly owners have really thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible such as a thoughtful welcome pack, and even offer pooch-sitting if you are keen to make use of the local golf and fishing opportunities.

Kick-off your boots and step inside to warm up, delighting in the warm and homely lounge/kitchen/diner. Relax with a wee dram on the sofas as the resident chef sizzles up something special in the kitchen, gathering together for delicious meals and chatter that lasts well into the night. Throw open the French doors on balmy evenings and enjoy al fresco drinks and a BBQ on the patio, retiring inside for a refreshing shower before bed. The ground-floor bedroom has ample space for a basket or two, and the spiral staircase leads up to the quirky master bedroom with its gorgeous en-suite featuring a double-ended bath. Outside, Fido can play safely in the enclosed garden, and there is off-road parking for two cars.

A walkers paradise, you’ll be spoilt for choice of where to explore first; choosing exciting trails such as St Cuthbert’s Way from Melrose 7.5 miles away, factoring in a visit to the iconic Melrose Abbey ruins. Keen fishermen can cast their line on the River Tweed 9 miles away, fishing for salmon and trout with guided fishing trips. A short 9-mile drive will bring you to Jedburgh, an ancient town famous for its abbey, castle jail, and Mary Queen of Scot’s House.

A lovely, comfortable and very well equipped cottage. Karen was very helpful and friendly, and made the stay very relaxed. Hot tub lovely, checked every day for cleanliness, and fluffy robes provided to use when climbing out! Lots to do and see in the area, and only an hour from the beautiful Northumberland coast. Rosie our dog enjoyed herself, andRead more had the private garden to wander in at will. Thanks Karen. Hide

Karen (the owner) is a lovely lady, who takes the time to get to know you if she sees you. When I mentioned my daughter would be starting an animal management college course, she asked if she wanted to go and see/help with her horses.

The cottage was really well equipped and there were some lovely unexpected extra touches (plenty of coffee pods for the machine, a bowl full of fresh fruit, freshly laid eggs and a pint of milk in the fridge) - which we really appreciated.
