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 location. The walks around the estate were magical. Cottage superb, underfloor heating a bonus in the cold weather we experienced. Owners next door helpful but not intrusive. Have no hesitation recommending and will return to explore further.
Fabulous cottage in a lovely area, couldn't fault it at all. Booking was easy, information complete and passed on every step of the way, have used Unique Cottages before and no doubt will many times again, its the first place I look.
