Pet-friendly accommodation in the Scottish Borders
Lace up your walking boots and discover the spectacular scenery of the Scottish Borders with your beloved hound in tow, choosing one of our self-catering pet-friendly cottages as your cosy base for exploring. Encircled by Dumfries and Galloway in the west, Edinburgh and the Lothians to the north, and bordering with Northumberland in the south, the Scottish Borders have plenty to offer man’s best friend. Visit for scenic strolls across the Berwickshire coastline, exhilarating hill climbs or delicious local scran in a fabulous canine-friendly pub. Browse our exclusive dog-friendly cottages in the Scottish Borders to find bijou-style retreats at the heart of the countryside, pet-friendly accommodation on the cusp of a meandering river, and dog-friendly accommodation tucked within a chocolate-box village in a sleepy valley.
Treat your pack to a holiday characterised by adventures, investigating the historic landscape which was once privy to devastating battles and conquests. Catch glimpses of ancient remains, explore majestic castles, or unravel the secrets of mysterious ruins and remnants such as Melrose Abbey and Drochil Castle. Younger visitors will be enthralled to learn about the fabled fairies of the Eildon Hills on your travels, or perhaps it would be wise to stick to the paths to explore the triple peaks away from mischievous ethereal creatures. Hungry from your explorations, the bustling streets of Peebles, Galashiels, Newton Stewart, and Melrose offer an array of eateries that will certainly tempt your taste buds.
