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.
One of the best cottages for equipment and kitchen food supplies, we have stayed in for a long time.The owners have thought of everything to make your holiday into a perfect stay. The views from the cottage lounge window are perfect, even when it's raining.The road that you drive to Rosie's cottage has the most wonderful views.My husband has said he would drive this route every day.Wildlife comes to your doorstep.Kind regards.
