Luckenburn is a former forester’s cottage in a truly wild and unspoilt setting. A bird watcher’s, naturalist’s and walker’s dream, this remote location is simply breathtaking! Surrounded by mile after mile of beautiful rural vistas where the sight and sound of a car is a rarity and there is no TV/broadband reception; Luckenburn will most certainly appeal to those yearning to escape from it all!  The peace and tranquillity is a haven in which to unwind and refresh; spectacular dark skies, grazing sheep, an abundance of wild-life, including deer, badgers and birds of prey providing their own form of magical entertainment.
Yet Luckenburn snuggles in a unique location easily accessible at only 10 miles east of the A68 (within the historic Jedburgh - Hawick - Kelso area), just over the panoramic border into Scotland. Access to it is on a good single track road with the final approach being via a half mile farm track. Inside, the cottage is entirely wheelchair accessible, but the path from the car parking area is grass and gravel.
This traditional single-level detached cottage oozes style with much care and attention to the finer details and comfort such as under-floor heating and original artwork. The accommodation offers a lovely blend of traditional character with a contemporary twist and careful restoration has ensured many original features have been thoughtfully retained.  These include a superb feature range with open fire, the focal point in the lounge area – idyllic to gaze into watching flames dance after a day exploring the hills. French doors from every room enhance its bright and airy ambience and lead to a raised decked area which stretches the full length of the cottage, providing the perfect relaxing spot to dine alfresco and watch the sun go down over Leithope forest or for young children to play.
Luckenburn provides an idyllic retreat for those seeking sheer seclusion yet is well placed to explore the scenic beauty, grand houses and gardens and interesting attractions offered by the border ‘toons’ right across the picture postcard of the Scottish Borders.

Luckenburn is beautiful . It takes a day to get used to the isolation (and lack of wifi) but after that those things add to the charm. We loved stargazing and listening to the burn. The house itself is gorgeous, clean and comfortable and the scenery is awesome. My car took a bit of a battering driving along farm tracks. It is fun driving along roads and meeting sheep and cows on the track though! When it was time to leave, we really weren’t ready to go. I feel like I could be blissfully happy there for weeks.

The cottage has been fitted out to a very high standard and with care. It was very clean. The weather was very hot whilst we were there, so we appreciated the decking and being able to have all the french windows open. We paddled in the burn until the horseflies found us. The location is blissfully quiet and private, and also remote - it took us 30 minutes to drive to the main road, and longer when we caught up with a farmer rounding up sheep or a timber lorry. The road through the farm was slow in our car, with rough ground. The range of possible short walks direct from the cottage was a little disappointing. We got mobile coverage 15 minutes walk up the hill from the cottage. We had a power cut during our stay and the owner was very helpful. The picture and description of the cottage is incorrect as it is not detached but is one of a pair of cottages with a "laundry link" utlility room joining the 2 cottages together. The other cottage was empty whilst we were there (and looked like it needed work doing on it) but our quiet, private week would have been quite different if it had been occupied.
