Settle in for a romantic break at this gorgeous, single-storey cottage at Duns, on the Scottish borders. This exquisite, period home, which was once a gatehouse, has been beautifully renovated to offer stylish, sophisticated accommodation, suitable for a couple and up to two of their four-legged friends. Wander the streets of Duns, with its pretty market square, independent shops and choice of restaurants. Head to the coast 13 miles away to walk along the cliffs and spot a plethora of birdlife. Return to your holiday home to bask by the wood burner or bubble in the hot tub.

Open the front door on to this beautiful cottage and wander down the hall to hang your coats in the utility room. Amble on through into the inviting lounge to recline on the comfortable seating and choose your evening’s viewing on the Smart TV. Lay a fire in the wood burner to create an inviting glow. When mealtimes beckon, head through into the kitchen/diner, where you will find everything you need to prepare delicious dinners for two. Make a cup of coffee in the espresso machine in here to enjoy after your wonderful meal.

At the end of each long day out discovering the beauty of the picturesque area, run yourself a long, hot bath and then head on through to the king-size bedroom to lay your head in comfort for the night.

Take breakfast out on the deck in the enclosed garden on summer mornings. Light the BBQ to cook lunch or supper out in the fresh air and fire up the hot tub in the evening for a luxurious soak under the stars. Pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy the tranquillity. Find parking for one car at the cottage. Additional space is on the road, subject to availability.

Find a wealth of activities and places to visit in Duns itself. Stroll through the nature reserve at Duns Castle or visit spectacular Manderston House, where you can tour the stately home and explore the 56 acres of garden. Motoring enthusiasts might also like to spend time at the Jim Clarke Museum.

Visit Paxton House, 11 miles from the town and widely described as one of Britain’s finest Palladian mansions. Discover the beautiful house here; wander through the picturesque, woodland gardens and take a boat trip on the River Tweed.

Head 11 miles, and just over the border into England, to visit Norham Castle. Set high on a grassy mound, above the River Tweed, this stronghold was besieged at least 13 times by Robert Bruce. Drive 15 miles to spend an afternoon in Berwick-upon-Tweed: see its famous Elizabeth walls, browse in its many independent boutiques and shops and dine out in one of its varied restaurants.

Walk from Berwick along the coast to Burnmouth. The 7-mile route affords fantastic coastal vistas. Alternatively try a 4-mile walk from St Abbs, 14.5 miles from the cottage, to Eyemouth, which gives you views out towards the rock formation known as the Ebb Carrs.

Great stay in this beautiful cottage. Very well decorated, cleanliness superb, and the little extras well received. Good location to explore the borders, and a 10 min walk to town centre and pub. Hot tub and garden well done, and only few steps from front door in to enclosed garden.

A nice, comfortable place to stay. Viewlaw Lodge is just outside Duns town which is within easy walking distance. The Lodge was spotlessly clean and modern with all necessary appliances.

The property is clean comfortable and well equipped, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it highly. There is no direct access to the garden for the hot tub, you have to go out of the front door into the garden, it's only a few paces and you are on a side lane, but I would recommend taking a robe and flip flops or similar so you're noRead moret out on the street in a towel.

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.
