Wester Cottage is a 150-year-old farm cottage situated just outside St Boswells. We enjoy living in this lovely part of Scotland and look forward to welcoming guests to our home. It is an ideal base for exploring this area. It is also easily accessible to St Cuthberts Way which is just 1 mile away. We also provide a cooked breakfast. The guest room is comfortable and spacious with an adjacent shower room. It has its own separate entrance so you are free to come and go as you please.
“The cottage is warm and well kitted out with a brilliant shower. Blair and Sarah took great care of me and provided a delicious breakfast to get me started for the day.”
Come and enjoy the peace and tranquility that the countryside has to offer with our offgrid converted horse Lorry. We have created a camping experience with a twist. At the site nests a converted horse lorry that sleeps five and a converted pony trailer that houses all your cooking needs. Theres a separate composting toilet and an outdoor shower with heated water. Theres also the option of cooking on the fire pit or just laze beside the flames under the stars.
“We have just spent a great 3 nights at sunny bedrule with the 4 of us (2 adults and 2 children, 7 and 9). Unfortunately the sun did not shine all the time but it was late October in Scotland so we were prepared with wellies and waterproofs. Despite this we managed 2 camp fires to roast marshmallows which were even complimentary! The facilities are great with a gas bbq in the cooking horse box and a shower with warm water (if you can brave the cold for a short while). The composting toilet was also better than expected but due to the overcast weather the solar light in the loo did run out so we were glad of having our head torches! The beds were comfortable and things were spotlessly clean in the horse box and with the log burner on it was very cosy. We became a dab hand in fire lighting and this meant it didn’t take long in the morning to get warm again after the colder nights. Another review suggested bringing a candle and this was a great suggestion for some light and ambiance when the kids were asleep. There was a solar light in both rooms but they both had to be on at once. We survived being off grid and there is phone signal if you needed it. We enjoyed board games as a family. We managed to book a farm tour which was wonderful and we would highly recommend this. We spent a great hour in the farm buggy seeing the highland cows, deer and other farm animals along with numerous facts and information. The children and adults enjoyed alike and we would go again when we come back. There are great walks from the horse box and in surrounding areas and we very much enjoyed our recommended walk up to the magical wood near by. There are abbeys and points of interest nearby also. We also went to Teviotdale leisure centre in Hawick which had a slide and a good pool and we made the most of the showers too! The local village Denholm has a reasonable pub and we had a lovely Italian meal in another restaurant the village.. The Denholm Meet. They even did takeaway if you had wanted. We had a nice brunch at Born in the Borders which is close by. All in all it was a great few days and we are looking forward to returning.”
Located in the heart of Melrose, this quirky loft conversion is just a 2 minutes’ walk from the centre of the historic town of Melrose. You have your own private entrance, small internal area for coats, shoes etc then up to the bright studio where there is a large double bed, two lovely armchairs, a dining table with 2 two chairs, a fully equipped kitchenette as well as a bathroom with shower/wc and basin.
“Despite wild, windy and cold weather outside, this was a lovely cosy place to come back to after a day outdoors. The studio was cleverly laid out and well appointed. Everything was provided for a comfortable stay and I felt very at home here. There were lots of nice additional and thoughtful touches too. The bed was incredibly comfortable and, despite rain and wind battering against the windows at night I still slept like a log! It’s only a few minutes from the centre of Melrose where there are some excellent restaurants and hotels for food and good local shops. Bus links to other parts of the Scottish Borders can be picked up at the end of the road. Kerry’s communication was top notch and she very kindly drove me to the train station on check-out so that I wouldn’t have to stand about in the snow waiting for the local bus. I would happily make this my base in the Borders in future.”
