Surrounded by the glorious scenery of the Scottish Borders, this elegant property sits in a wing of the 1850s built Glen house, boasting 5000 acres of estate land and stunning original features.

This fascinating and unique house brings together modern design, country detail, and the stunning surroundings of the Glen Estate. Built in the 1850s, the house is an impressive example of Scots Baronial style, with turreted walls and gables, nestled in 5,000 acres of rolling park and moorland amid the atmospheric Scottish Borders.

From the centuries-old stone walls that surround the gardens to the flagged floors and vaulted ceilings, this property is a romantic hideaway that will make you feel like you’re living in a fairy tale.

Inside, the rooms have been elegantly and lovingly designed. The first stop is the open-plan living space, with a seating and dining area perfect for socialising together at the end of a day’s exploring. This room opens out via a pair of French doors to a cobbled courtyard and is located next to the kitchen, which is an unusual space with an exposed curved brick ceiling.

Head upstairs to find a lovely gallery space, a perfect pitstop to catch your breath or read some Scottish history. Continue through into your bedrooms: a four-poster double is your master, complete with en-suite shower room, and a sweet twin also has its own bathroom, so there’ll be no fighting in the mornings.

Outside, experience the wonders that the Scottish Borders has to offer, all within the grounds of the estate. Beside the property, a shared cobbled courtyard and garden overlooking the sweeping lawns and with woodland habitats and bubbling streams are just a walk away.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

  • Private entrance and parking
  • 2 dogs welcome – restricted to ground floor only, dog bedding not provided
  • Seasonal trout fishing and use of the fitness centre available by arrangement with the estate
  • Shops and restaurants within 4 miles

You can lose yourself in the acres of the Glen Estate grounds themselves. Hills, woodland, moorland and even lochs, as well as romantic gardens and manicured areas, will give you the sensation of strolling around a period drama. Discover the fascinating history of Traquair, once a palace of William I of Scotland and thereafter resided in by many kings and famous figures. The stuck gates — or “Steekit Yetts” — are legendary for keeping out unwanted visitors.

Venture out into the countryside to discover the breath-taking pursuits of the Borders. Walk, ride, cycle, climb, discover the waterways and lochs, try your hand at water sports and fishing — it's all at your feet in the area of Peebleshire. 4 miles away is the small town of Innerleithen, where you can explore the local shops and eateries amid the trails and wildlife of the Borders.

Other attractions close by include Kailzie Gardens, 7 miles away, a beautiful walled garden set around a burn. The town of Peebles, a beautiful little place on the banks of the River Tweed, offers idyllic surroundings for a stroll and a shop, or head to the historic and cultural hub of Edinburgh, 30 miles away on the coast of the Firth of Forth.

A delightful apartment in a beautiful setting. The owner and housekeeper couldn't have been more helpful. This part of scotland tends to be overlooked by tourists and shouldn't be.

Great little location. Huge grounds with lovely walks and wildlife. Unusual cottage with traditional old decoration and furnishings. A few minutes from local places to shop and eat in Innerleithen , and peebles is a further 10 minutes. I'd say a car is necessary to access places though. Lovely, friendly and helpful house keeper.

We recently returned for the 2nd time to the old larder. This time as 4 adults, a baby and a dog. We enjoyed our stay, it was really peaceful and quiet and the accommodation was clean and cosy. Although large enough for 4, the twin room beds were uncomfor

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.
