Accommodation in Scotland

This is one of two beautiful holiday cottages at Harleyburn, located in 2 acres of private and secluded gardens less than a mile from the centre of Melrose. It is a fantastic location for enjoying the splendid Borders region and the picturesque town of Melrose. The Scottish Borders offers wonderful fishing, including the River Tweed, excellent golf (22 courses nearby) as well as very good walking and mountain biking. The region is steeped in history and has lots of attractions including the Border Abbeys and many stately homes, castles and gardens.

The Saddlery Cottage has been restored, and equipped to a very high standard from an original Victorian Saddlery. Today it offers guests excellent accommodation with every modern comfort, whilst still retaining the charm and character of a traditional country cottage. The cottage is accessed from a private driveway shared with a 19th century Coach House and the neighbouring Stables Cottage. The owners live nearby and provide a personal touch and are available to answer any queries. The cottage features beamed ceilings, a cobbled patio, extensive parking areas and open south-facing views over landscaped garden to the Eildon Hills beyond.

Nearby Melrose is a lovely Scottish Borders town with an excellent range of shops, cafes and restaurants. Melrose Abbey is a must to see whilst on holiday in this part of southern Scotland.
