Situated just 55 miles south of Edinburgh and 8 miles from the pretty town of Kelso in the Scottish Borders it stands in its own fenced rear garden. With magnificent views across the valley of the Kale Water to the hills beyond, the cottage is an excellent base for a relaxing family holiday. The village of Morebattle (with pub and shops) is within walking distance of the cottage.
For those looking for something a bit more strenuous than a quiet stroll to the pub, the Southern Upland Way passes over the hill in front of the cottage and the village of Kirk Yetholm (5 miles) stands at the end of the Pennine Way, so you really are spoilt for choice.
There is a spacious and very well-equipped kitchen diner and separate laundry room, but the real star of the show is the splendid upstairs sitting room, where a wood-burning stove efficiently complements the biomass central heating. There is a double bedroom and two twin bedrooms with a bathroom with separate shower. There is parking for several vehicles right at the door and secure storage can be made available.
The owners' house is about 400 yards away down through the trees and guests may use the tennis court by arrangement.
In such lovely surroundings you may well be loathe to wander far, but the countryside round about really is worth exploration.
Kelso has all facilities, including a swimming pool, ice rink, racecourse and golf course. Nearby Floors Castle, the home of the Duke of Roxburghe and the setting for the film 'Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan' should not be missed. For a golfing treat, try the prestigious course at Sunlaws, or you could even make a day of it and head for Luffness and Muirfield.
Fishing rights on the Kale and Beaumont waters are available through the Morebattle Angling Association. There are also lots of excellent cycle routes in the area. For a real challenge you could drive over to Glentress at Cardrona (40 miles), one of the leading mountain biking centres in Europe, with miles of dedicated forest trails.
Here you are only about 30 miles from the coast, the lovely beach at Coldingham, the seabird centre on the cliffs at St Abbs, historic Berwick-upon-Tweed and Lindisfarne itself (30 miles). For some urban sightseeing, Edinburgh is about an hour and a half's drive to the north, or 55 minutes by train from Tweedbank (22.5 miles). If you have time, it is worth taking the scenic route across the Lammermuir hills.
