Period cottage located in a private position with splendid valley and castle views. Enjoy cosy romantic nights infront of the roaring wood burner, after a day out exploring the stunning local area.
Enjoy views of Drochil Castle and the surrounding valleys while your happy hound bounds around your enclosed garden at this cottage on the Scottish borders. This charming, detached house, which is right next to the castle ruins, could be the perfect romantic retreat for you, your loved one and your best furry friend.
Set on a family-run working farm, your stone cottage enjoys wrap-around gardens, which all three of you can enjoy from that first stretch of the morning to a final nightcap under the stars. The single-storey property is entered via a lobby, with space for boots, coats and leads, as well as a good towel down after a long romp. Head into the lounge to light the wood burner on winter evenings and snuggle down with the Smart TV, with Rover reclining in warmth. The kitchen/diner has ample room for preparing a bite to eat for all three of you and includes a washing machine for giving those muddy doggy blankets a quick rinse through. The bright bedroom will beckon after a long day out in the fresh air, while a separate shower room completes the accommodation.
Your cottage is the ideal place from which to follow miles of fantastic footpaths. There are some 1,200 acres of farmland on your doorstep, which you are very welcome to explore with your best pal on a leash. Drive 8 miles to Carlops, the gateway of the Pentland Hills, for more glorious scenery and a good free run, or head 10.5 miles to Glentress Forest, where happy hounds can follow trails through the trees and lap up attention in the cafe and visitors’ centre afterwards. Visit the country town of Peebles, approximately 8.5 miles away, for outdoor activities, shops and several pet-friendly pubs.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
