Stylish byre with wood burner perfect for cosy nights in, benefitting from splendid valley and countryside views, within easy reach of the wonderful city of Edinburgh.

Set among the rolling Lammermuir Hills (boundary of Lothians and Borders), near the Scottish Borders, this period cottage, set on a working farm, also extends an invite to your two faithful hounds. Sleeping four across two bedrooms and ideal for pups, romantics and families, it’s attached to the owner’s house though privacy is assured. Ample off-road parking is available for guests.

Step into the spacious hallway of this stylish property and towards the well-equipped kitchen and utility area, where the owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. The welcoming lounge has wonderful vaulted ceilings, a TV and DVD player, plus a cosy wood burner where Sam and Mutley can recharge after long dog walks, and a dining area for mealtimes. From the hall you’ll also find the stylish and spacious bathroom with a bath, separate shower and WC, while bedrooms are upstairs.
 

Outside, there’s an enclosed courtyard with a seating area, great for unwinding after hill hikes.

Head to glorious Edinburgh (17 miles) for its culture, shopping and festivals (Fringe, Tattoo and Hogmanay), plus museums, castles, theatres and heritage sites to explore. From your doorstep, it’s a dog-walking paradise, or grab a set of wheels and explore the cycle and forest mountain bike trails throughout the region. There’s also fishing along the River Tweed within walking distance, or, further afield, discover Hillend Dry Ski Slope (16.5 miles) to train for your next winter holiday with skiing and snowboarding fun.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Beautiful cottage, lovely welcoming owners who left a lovely welcome pack. Cottage was huge but warm and as we had snow the warmth was appreciated. It is quite remote, nearest shop, pub and restaurants were a car drive but the isolation was wonderful. Good dog walks - on leads and access to fully enclosed garden. I cant rate this cottage high enougRead moreh. Wonderful holiday - we were told the best way to get into Edinburgh was by train and this info turned out to be a god send. Hide

Lovely accommodation and grounds. Well equipped with everything you could need for a relaxing break.

Reviewed by Iain 13th September 2019

The cottage is probably even more remote than the description suggests. I think prospective guests should be aware that it is 11/2 miles on a track with 3 cattle grids through fields with bullocks and sheep after leaving the nearest hamlet. Once you get there , the welcome from Pat is great, the owners are friendly, and the cottage is very peacefulRead more. It is not all that easy to walk the dog straight from the cottage because of all the livestock, but there are lots of great walks around. Hide

Excellent cottage with beautiful remoteness silence and views. Owners are very helpful and friendly. Will definitely be going back.

We had a great stay at The Byre at Brothershiels. The Byre was clean and well equipped with some lovely finishing touches. We stayed in July but imagine that the enclosed hot tub would be ideal during rainy getaways. The location was great and easy to get to drink Edinburgh and Glasgow. Would highly recommend.

Lovely cottage, owners very helpful and made us welcome. Only issue is access to garden and hot tub. Also dogs cannot go out without lead due to farm animals. But still had a great weekend
