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.
Perfect location, perfect cottage. . On a sunny day, views of the beautiful beach and gentle rippling water lapping at the shore…. Sit on the patio with candles… perfect!! On stormy days, dramatic waves, wild rugged coast- makes you feel alive, fresh walk on the beach or snuggle down with a book. Can’t get any better than this cottages location.
Cottage well equipped, shower powerful and hot, bath deep, bed cosy and comfortable. Nice wood burner for chilly nights and keeps the place really warm.
My second visit to this cottage and will not be my last. I’d buy it, if they let me 😀. Isle of Lewis has some of the best beaches in the world.
Thank you for my little gift left and for ensuring all went well. I so needed that time at Liosbeag.
A very comfortable and well equipped cottage in an idyllic situation. An ideal place to relax and enjoy the stunning location. This was our second visit to the cottage and we enjoyed being there in a different season, mid May; last time we were there in September and it was equally beautiful. We would like to point out that whereas downstairs was very clean the standard of cleaning upstairs was not so high, especially in the bathroom which needs a good scrub!
What a lovely cottage this was and so pleased we found it on Unique Cotttages. The cottage was everything we could have asked for and our hosts (Stuart & Susan) made it feel even more welcoming with leaving a bottle of wine, fresh eggs and fresh cut flowers for our arrival. It was so quiet and peaceful and off the beaten track with lots of local walks through the forest and down to the bridge at the river. The cottage was well catered for and had everything we needed including a freezer and a washing machine, not that we had anything to wash. All the rooms were large and spacious with plenty of storage space and well furnished and pleasant to look at on the eye. It is in a great location and the beach at Banff is within easy driving distance and there is so much to explore in the area, and lots of castles, if you are into that sort of thing. Thank you again to Stuart & Susan for making our weeks break even better than expected and nice to come home in the evenings to such a lovely place.
