Tweed Neuk Cottage
St Boswells, Scottish BordersGuest Rating
Tweed Neuk is the most deceptive of houses! It is very quietly situated behind the owner's home off a little lane in the pretty Borders village of St Boswells, near Melrose.

Within just a minute's walk of the main street (shops and cafe) and very little farther from the golf course and the river, the cottage's convenient and peaceful situation still does not prepare you for the delights inside.
The carefully chosen décor perfectly complements the restful ambience of the cottage. Warm and cosy, it has been furnished and equipped to a very high standard and with a flair and style which cannot fail to delight.
Downstairs there is an elegant and very well-equipped dining kitchen which is cheerful and welcoming by day and night. Also on this level, the sunny tones of the double bedroom (with en suite shower) ensure guests will feel warm, cocooned and snug.
Upstairs, there is a splendid, spacious and airy sitting area with an electric stove and there is also a further shower room - so you can have one each!
There is off-road parking and to the front of the house is a canopied patio area exclusively for the use of guests, where you can be quite private.
You can stroll across the village green to the pub for drinks or dinner and there are lots of lovely riverside walks nearby.
Peaceful Dryburgh Abbey, for example, is just across the Tweed, or you can tackle the nearby Eildon Hills or the St Cuthbert's and Southern Upland Ways.
The Tweed will need no introduction as one of Scotland's greatest fishing rivers. Riding and cycling (on world-class mountain biking trails) can also be enjoyed locally, or, in more relaxed mode, you can visit the many stately homes, keeps and castles of this historic area.
Nearby Melrose (6 miles) should definitely be on your list of places to visit. It is one of the most charming of the Borders towns, with its ruined abbey and many good eating places and interesting independent shops. It is also home of the rugby Sevens game and each April it hosts its own Sevens tournaments with teams coming from all over the world. Melrose golf course is on the side of the Eildon Hills and might make a change from St Boswells’ own delightful course, which runs along the banks of the Tweed.
Further afield, the coast is only an hour away, with a fine sandy beach at Coldingham and the spectacular seabird colonies on the cliffs at nearby St Abbs. Buses pass through the village en route to Edinburgh, if you fancy a visit to Scotland's vibrant capital without any parking hassle, or you can get there in under an hour by train from Tweedbank (6.5 miles).
Berwick-upon-Tweed, on the English border, is a historic town that was much fought over by the two countries in the past. You can walk along the walls, or visit the historic barracks and castle. Just outside the town Paxton House, that was designed by the Adam brothers, houses a superb collection of furniture and pictures.
