Located in the Scottish borders and set in the grounds of a country estate, is this handsome one-bedroom property. Its elevated position makes it wonderfully quiet and it’s an ideal holiday retreat for a couple wanting relaxation and countryside walks. Despite the rural location, you’re not cut off from the outside world, with pubs, restaurants, and shops just 2 miles away in Hawick.

Distributed over one floor, the inside is a welcoming space with cheerful decor, light tones, and colourful soft furnishings.

The open-plan living area is wonderfully spacious with beautiful sash windows that flood the room with natural light. It also has all the modern comforts you could ask for: a plump sofa, a Smart TV, and a well-equipped kitchen. After a day exploring kick off your boots in the hallway then relax in the lounge and soak up the countryside views. When it’s time to eat, whip up a delicious meal for two then linger over it at the neat dining table. As bedtime beckons, you’ll be sure of a good night’s sleep in the king-size bedroom with its romantic garden views.

Outside, steps lead onto a patio. Pull up a chair and enjoy a quiet morning coffee while keeping an eye out for hares and swifts in the pretty flower-filled garden. As the property is surrounded by countryside, you can also enjoy scenic walking trails straight from the door.

The area surrounding the property is brimming with natural beauty, hiking routes, and riverside walks. From the door, pick up the Cross Borders Drove Road or the Roman and Reivers Route and enjoy stunning woodland, open farmland, and idyllic glens on foot, mountain bike, or horseback. The River Teviot (13.5 miles) and River Tweed (18.5 miles) are havens for salmon and trout and are excellent spots for fly fishing. Lovers of golf can also enjoy a game at Hawick’s 18-hole course (2 miles).

The town of Hawick is famed for its textiles, so be sure to stop at the mill outlets and browse the high-quality knitwear and cashmere. After perusing the stores, visit the Borders Distillery and learn about the local production of whiskey, gin, and vodka. You can even sample a dram in the distillery bar. Hawick also has plenty of charming bars and restaurants so you can be sure of a tasty bite to eat.

Further afield, history lovers can visit Melrose (19 miles) and marvel at the ruin of Melrose Abbey and explore its grounds, cloister, and museum.

Beautiful cottage, just perfect for two people. Lovely spot just outside Hawick, very rural and so quiet. Everything in the cottage was of the highest standard and owner close by should anything be needed. Can't recommend highly enough.

Absolutely delightful cottage in a stunning location. Everything has been provided for a perfect stay. We've stayed in a lot of cottages, and this has to be the best by far. Finished to a high spec, everything has been thought of and nothing stinted.
