Glorious location beside a babbling burn, traditional stone cottage with wood burner, ideal for Edinburgh, Melrose and Kelso.

Situated above a tumbling burn is Mill Cottage (SFFJ), a detached stone building. Part of a working sheep farm, it was formerly an old mill, now converted to a high standard with great attention to comfort and style.

Just below on the same small stream is Bridge Cottage (UKC3466), a beautifully crafted romantic cottage for two. It is set above a bubbling burn and is furnished and equipped with exceptional attention to detail and guest comfort. The double height living area opens onto a secluded, sheltered patio and the sofa and cosy wood burner are perfect for those cooler days. The kitchen and dining area have been equipped with everything needed for romantic dining and the spacious mezzanine bedroom is beautifully presented.

Nearby, visit 16th-century Thirlestane Castle, and Lauder, 6 miles, has good local shops, restaurants, pubs, a gallery and an excellent coffee shop. Kelso and Melrose both have magnificent abbeys, great historic houses and gardens, interesting shops and a variety of cafés and restaurants. There are cycling and walking routes to suit all abilities, along with uncrowded golf courses and world famous fishing on the River Tweed and its tributaries. The beaches of the East Lothian are 25 miles away and there is good walking from the door. Edinburgh, 21 miles, provides entertainment and culture in equal measure. Beach 23 miles. Shop and pub 2½ miles, restaurant 5½ miles.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 6 guests.

    We have been staying at mill cottage for a week. All in all 4 persons, me, my wife and our two daughters (10,14). Our host Grace was really nice and very helpful with her suggestions to what to do in the surroundings of the cottage. Thank you Grace! The cottage itself is just wonderful. Well equipped, nothing missing, clean, just perfect. It was our first trip to Scotland (we are from Germany), so we wanted to see all the highlights in the surroundings and if you do not refrain from a one hour drive you can reach so much stuff to see We did St. Abbs Head, Jedburgh - Dryburgh and Melrose Abbeys, Edinburgh (twice), Stirling, The Moffat hills with the Grey Mare's Tail - and had a fantastic week at the cottage. It is really nice to come home to such a beautiful and calm cottage in the evening. So this review is a suggestion to everybody visiting Scotland: The mill cottage is a wonderful place to stay to explore the borders region all up to Stirling.

    What a wonderful holiday we had. The cottage was beautiful, immaculately clean, everything we needed and more. Grace was marvellous and very helpful. Road and rail links from cottage to Edinburgh were really good.

    We had a fantastic holiday in an amazing cottage. It had everything you needed. The owners were lovely Grace and Sandy made sure we were okay during our stay. We will be having another holiday next year in this cottage. It is 10+.
