This former Schoolmaster’s house has been renovated into one of the nicest small country houses we have seen. It has a real warmth and charm is extremely comfortable and furnished with great taste and comfort. There are stripped wooden floors, wood burning stoves, luxurious bathrooms and bedrooms and a wonderful practical yet stylish kitchen. Full of original features such as wooden shutters that date back to its former life as the Schoolmasters this is a light bright spacious home with high ceilings and a sense of welcome.

The house has a large and pretty garden that borders on the upper reaches of the River Tweed. There is a steep bank to the river and whilst it is fenced you will need to keep a close eye on small children. The river is a delightful spot where a sitting area has been set up and the sound can be heard from the house. Calming and beautiful. It is a very quiet and beautiful area with pretty views from the garden and the house.

The bedrooms are all presented with crisp cotton linens and delicious inviting beds whilst the bathrooms are new and immaculate and the family bathroom is huge and inviting.

The Borders are very beautiful and a bit of a secret getaway with Edinburgh and Glasgow less than an hour away. It is an area worth exploring from the famous Traquair House to the many Border towns like Melrose, Biggar and Peebles. There is plenty of excellent low and high level walking in the area and cycling is extremely popular. For fishermen and women there is endless opportunity for local fishing and perhaps treat yourself to a luxurious Spa day at nearby Stobo Castle before sinking into your fabulous bed at night.

One not to miss – great value for such a truly lovely house in such a delightful rural area.

    Tweedsmuir School House reviews
    Tho School House was an absolutely fantastic place to stay. Our party stayed for two nights over the new year period. The property was meticulously clean and has clearly been furnished to a very high, modern standard. All beds were very comfy and the kitchen was perfectly stocked for our group. The property itself was easy to find and ideally located between Biggar and Moffat. The area was quiet and offered good walks very close by. Mr Watson the owner was there to greet us as we arrived and provided a very helpful tour around the property and provided helpful information. Mr Watson was also very accommodating to our party during the booking process. We understand this is relatively new property on the holiday market however you would not be able to tell owing to the ease of our booking, helpful introduction to the property and the very high standard the property is finished to. It would be an absolute pleasure to stay at this property again.
    Mr Pretswell - December 2018
    Beautiful property, excellently positioned for walking and outdoor activities but also perfectly equipped for those who prefer to stay in and keep cosy. Tom and Maria have created a wonderful home to stay on holiday.
