St Boswells is another of the really pretty Border villages, some forty miles south of Edinburgh and lying between the A68 and the River Tweed, with a village green, pub/hotel, two or three small shops and an excellent bookshop/cafe.
It is one of these places that really tick the boxes ' a lovely situation, convenient for touring or relaxing, with excellent facilities both in the village itself and in the nearby town of Melrose (5 miles).
The Tweed, offering lovely riverside walks, is within a few minutes' walk. On its banks is a level, 9 hole golf course and directly opposite, accessible by a foot bridge, is lovely Dryburgh Abbey. St Cuthbert's Way (running from Melrose to Lindisfarne) passes through the village, as do regular buses to Edinburgh.
Stunningly beautiful cottage in a nice quiet area with great views across the Borders countryside. Well appointed kitchen, great bathroom and a huge four-poster bed! Probably the best cottage we have ever stayed in.
What a lovely location. On a main road but no noticeable noise. On the water with changing tides right below your feet and bird-life right outside. The west coast of Scotland is one of the most scenic areas of the world and the boathouse is right in the middle of it.
Lovely cottage, very well equipped & located. The sofa in the lounge wasn't really big enough for four adults comfortably & the pillows were too soft but that was personal choice. Cost us quite a lot in wood for the log burner.
Easy to book, great cottage. The cottage was in a fabulous setting, and was incredibly well equiped. While there is absolutely nothing to complain about, I wonder if it could be even more improved if someone from the estate could create maybe 5 walks from the cottage - it is a gorgeous area, but a bit difficult to work out where you could walk. Cottage was clean, spotless, and loved the free wifi and freesat telly.
