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.
