About the neighbourhood
The cottage sits in the peaceful conservation village of Gattonside, originally used as an orchard by the monks of Melrose Abbey. It features narrow winding paths from the main street which lead down to a charming suspension footbridge first erected in 1826 which crosses the Tweed river and links the village to the town of Melrose. Gattonside has two highly regarded restaurants - Seasons and The Hoebridge, both just a short walk away. You will find an excellent range of amenities in Melrose - including a super selection of quality food shops, some of the best independent shopping in the Borders, and a number of wonderful eating establishments.
Getting around
We recommend a car or bike for exploring the Scottish Borders. Melrose is a five minute drive or a 15 minute walk over the footbridge. The new railway to Edinburgh is a 20/30 minute walk away in Tweedbank. There is also a car park at the train station where you can leave your car for the day.
