Quirky and delightful period cottage, perfect for a romantic retreat with its wood burner for cosy nights in and a fully enclosed garden. Nestled in an idyllic rural position surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the Scottish Borders.

Wake up to the relaxing sounds of the countryside in this charming period property in rural Scotland. The cottage sleeps two guests, plus two canine companions, making it a perfect romantic bolthole. Set off from your front door to enjoy peaceful walks through the countryside, or journey to Jedburgh (5 miles) to pick up the Borders Abbeys Way. After a day of exploring, return to your cosy cottage to relax by the warming wood burner or sip a sundowner in the garden, surrounded by open fields and local wildlife.

The traditional cottage has bright, airy rooms with high ceilings and relaxing rural views. Simple decor and neutral paintwork provide a calm atmosphere, with pretty artwork depicting the local countryside and creating a homely feel.

A flight of stone steps leads to the vestibule of this delightful cottage. Leave your coats and muddy boots here, and head into the light and bright lounge/diner. Share a romantic dinner for two by the window, watching the local wildlife, before retiring to the opposite end of the room to snuggle by the wood burner and watch a film on the Smart TV. There is a sofa bed in this room, to sleep an additional two guests if required. A sleek kitchen completes the ground floor.

Upstairs, discover a spacious king-size bedroom that’s decorated in neutral tones for a restful night’s sleep. The bedroom boasts beautiful countryside views. A bright shower room is also located on this level.

Heading outside, there’s a gorgeous garden that’s fully enclosed and laid to lawn – perfect for your four-legged friends. At the end of a busy day, pour yourself a glass of wine and take a moment to chill out in the seating area, watching the birds coming and going, along with the occasional red squirrel. The property has ample off-road parking, as well as secure storage for bikes.

With its remote landscapes, evocative ruins, romantic castles, and winding rivers, The Scottish Borders is the perfect place for a memorable getaway with your loved one.

The picturesque town of Melrose (16 miles) is a must for the itinerary. This picture-postcard town of red sandstone buildings, at the foot of the Eildon Hills, is just magical. Amble along its quaint streets, popping into the independent boutiques and tearooms, before investigating one of the two immaculate National Trust for Scotland gardens.

Melrose Abbey is another one for the list. Its magnificent 12th-century ruins of lavishly decorated masonry are full of drama and mystery – best visited on a dreich afternoon for maximum impact.

Just outside Melrose, you’ll find Abbotsford. The ancestral home of Sir Walter Scott is utterly fascinating; wander through the poet’s study and marvel at his extensive library, before taking a relaxing stroll through the colourful walled gardens and tranquil woodlands.

As you’d expect, the walking opportunities in the area are endless. The Borders Abbeys Way is a great way to experience the region’s varied landscape. The 68-mile route takes you through historic towns and villages, linking four great ruined abbeys in Kelso, Jedburgh, Dryburgh, and, of course, Melrose

This was a lovely cottage for us to stay at. Quiet and peaceful surroundings, the cottage was well equipped. You had everything you need for comfortble stay. Restaurants and places to eat just a few miles away. Plenty walks nearby for the dogs who had plenty of fun. The enclosed garden was ideal for them. A lot of history in the area, various AbbeyRead more's, castles and Jedburgh jail, and Mary Queen of Scots House very much worth a visit. Hide
