Contemporary barn conversion on a vast country farm, with traditional farmhouse kitchen, cosy lounge and spacious bedrooms. Conveniently located to explore nearby Tweed Valley and less than 30 miles to Edinburgh.

Stay in this delightful Scottish barn conversion, which has been decorated to the highest standard and makes an ideal base for those looking for a local adventure. This luxurious property is spacious, well thought out and modern, and it offers the perfect holiday home come rain or shine. Comfortably sleeping eight guests and one dog, this home is well suited to a family with older children.

The home boasts a contemporary style and muted luxury, combining a minimalist style with small touches of traditional Scottish culture. Enjoy tartan fabrics draped over antique soft furnishings in a classic country decor. Plenty of windows throughout allow light to flood into the property and boast views of the surrounding 2,000 acres of countryside.

On the ground floor, you’ll find a sociable L-shaped living area, which creates a wonderful space for everyone to relax whilst also maintaining a cosy atmosphere. Enter straight into the spacious kitchen, which boasts a classic range oven that’ll come in handy when preparing dinner for eight. Enjoy a relaxed brunch or morning coffees on the breakfast table or take dinner into the dedicated dining area where you’ll find a spacious table. Around the corner, yet still making up one open-plan room, is a cosy lounge area. Cushy sofas and armchairs are the ideal place to curl up and watch a DVD. Throw some logs on the charming wood burner and enjoy the flickering flames on a winter's evening.

A second place to relax can be found on the mezzanine level of the property, in a light-filled music room. Here, you’ll find a generous corner sofa, piano and guitar. A large window and the elevated position of this home ensures an unforgettable view of the local area. On this floor, the master bedroom benefits from an opulent half-canopy bed. Before heading onto the first floor, be sure to throw open the French doors and head out onto the patio, a perfect spot for early evening drinks.

Three further bedrooms can be found upstairs, and their position at the top of the house leaves them with charming slightly-slanted ceilings. All bedrooms boast crisp linen sheets on memory foam mattresses, and guests are always impressed by their remarkable comfort. The rooms have been decorated with antique pieces of furniture, adding to the authentic feel of the farmhouse home, whilst maintaining a high luxury standard.

To the front of the home you’ll find an enclosed, grassy lawn. This private space is perfect for children or dogs to run around, and you can dine alfresco thanks to the garden furniture. Enjoy vast outdoor space that surrounds the home and enjoy the freedom of surrounding fields and farmland.

Those on a sporting holiday will find plenty of appealing past times in and around this property. The home is set on a far-reaching estate with a loch, and you're more than welcome to fish for wild brown trout on this beat. Alternatively, you may prefer to wander 2 miles down to the bustling River Tweed and fish for native Scottish salmon. Those less keen on fishing may want to head to one of the two local golf courses, both around 6 miles away.

Walking and mountain biking can be enjoyed on multiple nearby peaks, including the Minch Moor (10.5 miles) and the Blackhope Scar (15.5 miles), both of which boast wonderful views from their summits. Those looking to explore the area with an expert guide can head to Biggar Adventure Centre (15 miles) for canoeing, abseiling and gorge walking, or older kids may want to visit the local Go Ape (13 miles).

Once you've successfully explored the surrounding hills, be sure to take a trip to the local border town of Galashiels (5.5 miles). Here you'll find plenty of country pubs, many offering family friendly meals. Be sure to make a day of it, discovering the local area then catching a film at the independent Pavilion Cinema.

This property is personally managed by Carol.

5 x 50+ mountain bikers up in the Borders to enjoy the great riding in the Tweed Valley. Dignity turned out to be the perfect base to explore from and return to after a full day out in the hills. The hot tub was a relaxing end to the day and the house itself was very comfortable and a great place to unwind in the evening. Thanks for the welcome cakRead moree too! Highly recommended. :-) Hide

This was our second time at Dignity. Once again we all had a lovely time in a beautiful house. Absolutely everything is catered for and to the highest standard. We had lots of snow this year and the children were able to enjoy sledging. The house was really cosy with the wood burner being lit in the evening. We didn't need to venture far as we wereRead more all very happy relaxing but when we did we enjoyed the surrounding countryside. The children enjoyed their afternoon swimming at Peebles and Peter Rabbit on the cinema in Galashiels was a great hit. Hopefully we will return next year and enjoy being in such a lovely house. Liz's welcome cake is just a delight and very much enjoyed by all, thank you. Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
