Peebles

The pretty town of Peebles, in the Scottish Borders, is set amongst rolling hills on the banks of the River Tweed. Come here for a leisurely long weekend or a week away and enjoy the town''s unspoilt character.

The town has elegant Victorian architecture, many fine buildings and a relaxed, genteel atmosphere. It’s close to lovely river-side walks and restful parkland areas. It’s also becoming recognised as a destination for art and culture lovers. A good starting point is the Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre, where you''ll find a varied programme of music, dance, cinema and visual arts, so there''s something to suit the whole family.

Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the charming High Street to the old Mercat Cross or get some fresh air with a walk by the River Tweed. If you come to Peebles in June, the annual Beltane Festival is not to be missed. This week-long celebration is steeped in tradition, and you''ll have the opportunity to witness the Neidpath Ceremony and Riding of the Marches, as well as a colourful procession through the streets and alleyways of the town.

Walking and cycling is popular here, with easy access to the Tweeddale Forest and Southern Upland Way. Golfers will find plenty of excellent golf courses in the region and of course if you like a spot of fishing you’re in the right place!

If you fancy eating out you''ll find plenty to tempt your tastebuds here; from good local traditional fare to international food on offer in the cafes, bars and restaurants of Peebles.

    Ref: 30102

    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.

    Ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen. Separate toilet. First floor: 3 bedrooms: 1 double with en-suite bathroom with shower attachment and toilet, 2 twin, both with en-suite bathroom with shower attachment and toilet.
