Browse our handpicked collection of farm cottages to rent in the Scottish Borders and discover a holiday destination characterised by spectacular scenery, fascinating history and an array of exciting activities to delight guests of all tastes and interests. Boasting iconic towns such as Melrose of Rugby Sevens fame, delightful Peebles on the banks of the River Tweed, and the largest town of the region and cultural hotspot of Galashiels, you’ll never be far from independent shops, eateries and amusements in the Scottish Borders. If you are fond of the sea, the Berwickshire Coast has sand, shingle and rock beaches and a popular coastal trail that’s perfect for budding explorers and seasoned hikers.
Depending on the time of year, you are more than likely to encounter a festival or celebration such as Burns Night, Hogmanay, or a special event dedicated to the arts, music and food. Embrace the celebratory atmosphere and soak up the local culture, rounding off with picking up a few souvenirs from Peebles, an excellent location for retail therapy thanks to the array of independent shops. Step back in time and stroll through the grounds of majestic buildings that now stand in ruins, such as the eerie Melrose Abbey, Kelso Abbey and the village of Dryburgh. When you have had your fill of culture, reconnect with the great outdoors and set out to explore the Eildon Hills, St Mary’s Loch and the Yarrow Valley, or the beautiful Thornilee Forest. You will not regret visiting this magical part of Scotland.
