The capital is just forty five minutes away for sightseeing, shopping, visiting galleries, museums and theatres and the Edinburgh Festival.
Peebles is now the centre of the mountain biking world, with Glentress, Innerleithen Downhill and 7Stanes all nearby. Fishing on the River Tweed is available within walking distance.

Neidpath Cottage is adjacent to the castle and overlooks the River Tweed below. It was once used as the kitchens for the castle after Cromwell destroyed the original one.
There is a lovely light-filled sitting room with an open log fire, from where you enter the master bedroom, with ensuite shower room, and the single bedroom. The kitchen is large enough to sit in with a fully equipped work area including a 5 hob gas cooker with a large electric oven and plenty of crockery and utensils. The family bathroom has a full sized bath for soaking in with a hand shower attachment, and is in the centre of the cottage. The twin bedroom has a pretty red glass chandelier and is at the far end of the cottage. There is a small cloakroom by the front door, and a utility area with a washing machine and dryer.
All the rooms are decorated in a charming traditional way, with proper curtains and shutters throughout.
