Cottage
Burnbrae Holidays is set in the heart of the Scottish Borders, is quiet and peaceful yet only 3 miles from the historical town of Kelso with its majestic abbey, delicious restaurants, large cobbled square. The self-catering one-bedroom cottages were sympathetically created by the conversion of our farm barn. Each cottage is all on one level, light and airy with plenty of space, each is ideal for 2, extra beds available, please ask, generously equipped for 2 or 4. From the dining area of the living room, there is direct, level access to a south-facing conservatory with magnificent views across the secluded garden, river and the Tweed valley to the Cheviot hills and the border between Scotland and England.

The self-catering one-bedroom cottages were sympathetically created by the conversion of our farm barn. Each cottage is all on one level, light and airy with plenty of space, each is ideal for 2, extra beds available, please ask, generously equipped for 2 or 4. From the dining area of the living room, there is direct, level access to a south-facing conservatory with magnificent views across the secluded garden, river and the Tweed valley to the Cheviot hills and the border between Scotland and England. Watch the fantastic native wildlife including deer, hares, our resident heron and woodpecker from your cottage. The light and airy living room has a wood burner for which we supply wood. Come and cosy up in front of the fire after a great day out exploring the local historical houses and gardens. Come and cycle the quiet Border roads or explore the beautiful area walking directly from your cottage. The cottage has a heated drying cupboard and on-site is a lockable shed for bikes, fishing and golfing equipment. I have purchased extra duvets and pillows so we can change duvets, pillows, mattress protectors (as well as bed linen and towels) between guests. We will carry out extra cleaning as per the very detailed protocol from the Scottish Government. I have completed the recommended cleaning/ disinfection training as recommended for holiday cottage cleaners. There are many local walks and cycle routes where you are unlikely to meet anyone due to the lack of people. Or sit and relax while admiring the wonderful rural views and amazing birds in your cottage garden. More
