Begrum cottage has one bedroom with twin beds which can be arranged as a 6' double bed in the bedroom and a double sofa bed in the living room. There is central heating throughout & a log burner in the living room. All of the rooms are on the same level, with level access from the large, private car park. You can bring your car close to the main entrance of each cottage for loading. Relax in your private south-facing conservatory, or in a recliner on the patio, watching the wildlife, admire the garden, walk in our fields and along the riverside or snuggle-up in front of your cosy log-burning stove. Begrum cottage has a living room with ample space for comfortable seating and also dining. The separate kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, fridge freezer, hob, combination microwave oven and conventional oven with grill. The bathroom has a shower over the bath. There is a lockable cycle shed and a separate laundry with washing machine and tumble drier for the use of guests. Each cottage has a heated drying cupboard. We hold Silver Award for Green Tourism. Begrum Cottage is within 50 minutes drive from Edinburgh, and 50 mins drive from the superb east coast, Border towns, Cheviot and Ettrick hills. Ideal for visiting the many abbeys, gardens and stately homes which are found nearby (Floors Castle and Mellerstain House are just a few minutes away). Just 3 miles from Kelso with its splendid square, magnificent abbey ruins, racecourse, individual shops and a wide selection of places to eat. The quiet country roads are a joy for motorists and cyclists alike. More adventurous mountain bikers can test their nerves on the Glentress trails. For the less daring, the Borders offers a wide variety of golf courses, fishing, horse-riding, walking - from strenuous hikes up the Cheviot to peaceful strolls amongst the splendid Borders scenery - or admiring the textiles, pottery, woodwork and paintings on show in the numerous studios and galleries to be found within the area.....and you can return to relax in the peace of Burnbrae. Coronavirus~ I will leave your cottage unlocked for your arrival and you can phone me with any questions. We will leave instructions for the equipment in the cottage for you. I have purchased extra duvets and pillows so we can change duvets, pillows, mattress protectors (as well as bed linen and towels) between guests. I 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. We live on-site and enjoy helping guests with information and other assistance. We hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you to Burnbrae Holidays.More
