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.
Fantastic cottage.The welcome gifts were very much appreciated and the property was one of the most outstanding we have visited in 30 years.We feel the specific directions to find the cottage should be more accurate as it was very difficult to find.
The cottage was true to its description on Unique Cottage's site. Tigh a Braddan is perfectly situated looking out to the Applecross bay. Although the weather was typically wet, we enjoyed a very comfortable stay in the cottage which was warm, homely and well equipped. Service from the company was prompt, efficient and helpful.
We had a lovely stay in this very pleasant cottage, It was well laid out and very warm in the winter months. Dog friendly with the wooden and tiled floors. Would highly recommend it. Thank you for a great holiday.
