Newton Cottage: beautiful one bedroom self-catering cottage in the Borders

Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Leitholm, Borders, Scotland
Newton Cottage is a beautifully converted old cottage which creates a snug bolthole for one or two when you want to escape and enjoy some rural luxury. Curl up in front of the wood burner, pour a glass of wine and relax.
You step into a homely, open-plan sitting room with a plump sofa to sink into after a hard day exploring the Borders and a cosy dining area to enjoy the fruits of your labours in the kitchen or a home cooked meal at the village pub. A wood burning stove and bright rug spread across the floor create a cosy feel. At night, sink into the superking bed with luxurious linen.

Interaction with guests
I live in the village so I'm generally on hand if guests need anything. The keys will be in the key safe and I'll send you the code in advance of your stay. I like to welcome guests and can always provide recommendations of things to do and places to eat. However, I'm absolutely respectful of guest privacy and will leave you in peace to enjoy your break.

I can provide a travel cot for babies but as the cottage only has one bedroom, it's only suitable for a baby or toddler to accompany parents and not for older children.

About the neighbourhood
We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world – it’s a cliche but there really is something for everyone. Whether you are up for a big adventure or just want to chill and do very little then read on and plan your perfect itinerary.
For the more active amongst you there are amazing walks, mountain biking, fishing and golf up for grabs. You can visit one of the many historic houses in the area or just take in the beautiful views and relax in your luxurious cottage.
If you want to travel further afield Edinburgh and Newcastle are a train journey away.
From the doorstep you can walk for miles in the beautiful countryside. There’s a wealth of wildlife and striking scenery with fresh air and beautiful, pastoral views all around.
Getting around
As this is a fairly rural area, it's best to have a car. Berwick upon Tweed is the closest mainline train station (approx. 25 mins from the village) and taxis are available at the station. Edinburgh and Newcastle are both around one hour's drive away and also accessible by train from Berwick.
Car advised
How to get there
The cottage is in a small village in a beautiful, rural part of the Scottish Borders. Public transport is fairly limited so guests are recommended to bring a car.
