Description

This holiday property is located in the Tweedsmuir Hills, where wonderful walking and biking can be enjoyed.

Within a traditional steading courtyard, these three charming holiday cottages (refs 30101, 30102 and 30103) are in the heart of a working hill farm in the picturesque Tweedsmuir Hills in the Scottish Borders. With wonderful hill walking and biking, they are ideal for those seeking a comfortable base close to outdoor activities, or a peaceful retreat in a lovely rural setting, and for stalking, shooting and fishing in season. Although apparently remote, Edinburgh is only a scenic hour away and Glasgow is a little further. Converted from original stabling for carriage horses, the holiday cottages have been thoughtfully equipped and furnished with a generous provision of en-suite facilities and can accommodate up to 12 guests in all. For around 30 years hydro power has provided clean energy for the farm and steading and a computerised 9-pin bowling alley with a spacious entertainment area is available by arrangement (at cost). There is a network of well-established tracks and forest rides throughout the estate’s unspoiled open hills and forests along both sides of the upper reaches of the River Tweed, and most of the farm is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The summit of Broad Law 2,790ft, is a good hike rewarded by panoramic views on a clear day and Hearthstanes is midway along the 121 mile Solway to Forth Cycle ride. Enjoy a wonderfully scenic drive past Tweedsmuir Reservoir to St Mary’s Loch and down to Selkirk, or visit historic Traquair House and Gardens at Dawyk and Kailzie, where there is an osprey watch, from Easter to late August. Shop, pub and restaurant 13 miles.Within a traditional steading courtyard, these three charming holiday cottages (refs 30101, 30102 and 30103) are in the heart of a working hill farm in the picturesque Tweedsmuir Hills in the Scottish Borders.

    A truly excellent location. We went for a long weekend with the dogs and the walking and scenery were so good we never left the estate! Peace and tranquillity abound with the only sound being the burn coming down the hillside and in to the River Tweed. Accommodation was superb and the owner could not have been more helpful. Will definitely return and is an ideal venue for walkers of field sports enthusiasts

    Superb cottage in wonderful scenic location. Had all the facilities one could want, in quiet, picturesque countryside. Ralph and Maura were welcoming and were more than wiling to answer any queries for me. A most enjoyable stay.

    This place was the nicest self-catering we've ever stayed at. Up with Landmark Trust properties. It provided every convenience and yet felt like a home. There was a luxuriously spacious en suite bedroom, a comfortable living/dining room, and tiny but effective galley kitchen. A second lavatory on the ground floor was an added luxury as were the heated towel rails. Everything was in 'as new' condition and spotlessly clean. Things matched!! There were not old condiments in the kitchen and a hodge-podge of dishes and cutlery. Although there were other people staying in the steading, we felt neither crowded nor overlooked. The soundproofing was remarkable. The burn burbled away right outside the living room window from where you could watch birds, animals and butterflies! The hills around the cottage were perfect for long walks and the lack of traffic, even in mid-June, made it a bicyclist's paradise. It is a bit of a drive for supplies (bring milk, 'cause there's no popping to the shop!) The carpet looks like it will be a nightmare to keep clean, but wasn't a problem. Our two dogs loved it.
