This charming period terraced cottage with wood burner ideal for cosy nights in, is tucked away down a quiet lane with wonderful countryside views towards the beautiful Eildon Hills

Escape to the Scottish Borders for a top dog staycation with your loved ones, based in a quintessential cottage packed with home comforts. Studded at the heart of historic Melrose close to the winding River Tweed, you and your canine companions will be able to explore at leisure, sniffing out the sights and smells of the surrounding countryside. You’ll be greeted with a thoughtful welcome pack, and the friendly owners even offer doggy day-care should you wish to take advantage of the local golfing and fishing opportunities.

Inside, the property is sleek, stylish and traditionally furnished with lots of charming extra touches such as fresh hens eggs and a roaring wood burner. Return from your adventures with armloads of local produce, transforming your spoils into hearty meals in the farmhouse-style kitchen. Relax with a glass of wine and a snoozing pooch at your feet in the lounge before treating yourself to a long soak in the upstairs bathroom. Two gorgeous bedrooms await the weary-pawed traveller, each one dressed to perfection with fluffy towels and floral decor. The single bedroom has a handy pull-out bed, ideal for children. Outside, the country-cottage garden is equipped with mesmerising views, garden furniture and a BBQ for al fresco suppers. On-street parking is available, and there is secure bike storage too.

Melrose is famous for its impressive ruined abbey, National Trust gardens, and popular Melrose Sevens festival each spring. The surrounding area is steeped in history, offering the keen walker a myriad of exciting trails to discover with Rover in tow. Further afield, Jedburgh 14 miles away is another historic hot spot, boasting its own abbey, castle jail, and an iconic house known for being the residence of Mary Queen of Scots.

A lovely cottage in a very quiet location, very clean and comfortable. Beautiful views of the hills, and a lovely south facing garden. We really appreciated the thoughtful touches in the cottage that really helped make this a relaxing break. There was lots of useful info in the cottage on scenic walks on the doorstep, and we loved the short walk acRead moreross the chain bridge to Melrose. Seasons restaurant, 2 mins walk, did a great 'At Home' takeaway meal. Would highly recommend this cottage. Hide

A great stay. Karen was so friendly, and sorted out a small problem swiftly. Harvey our doodle was quite taken with her. A major plus is the shower, so so good after a days walking.

The cottage suited us perfectly. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The owner seems to have thought of everything and there were lots of little touches which show she really cares about her guests. The garden has plenty of space to sit out and offers lovely views of the Eildon Hills. There are beautiful walks all around, and Melrose isRead more a just a stroll away across the river. We found it a most relaxing spot and our dogs were very happy there too! Hide

A perfect gem of a cottage with a lovely garden, perfect for lazing - our dog was very much at home! The cottage was very clean and well-equipped and the welcome goodies provided by Karen were very enjoyable. Superbly situated for a quiet break with nice walks along the river but only a mile's walk to the centre of Melrose. Two excellent restaurantRead mores within a short walk of the cottage. Hide

We had a completely wonderful stay at lovely Overbutton Cottage. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, and the location and garden were delightful. Karen's welcome pack was extremely generous, and there is so much to do in the local area. It is perfect for dogs. We couldn't have asked for a lovelier time or a warmer welcome.

Great cottage to base yourself in for walking around the Borders. Also it is about a mile walk to Melrose which means you are in a quiet place but with amenities nearby. Very comfortable, pet friendly, wood burning stove a real plus. Lots of welcome treats. Owner extremely friendly and helpful.

Location is good. Mattress far too soft. Duvet far too heavy. For the price I would have expected a dishwasher which would be much more useful than a washing machine. Extremely expensive for what it was.
