The perfect family friendly holiday cottage complete with hot tub and private garden. Dogs are welcome too!

The Lodge is our family friendly cottage for six, and dog friendly for up to two well behaved dogs. Whether you plan to walk, fish, cycle, shop or simply relax and play some board games, we have everything on offer that you might need for the perfect countryside escape in the Scottish Borders.

Space For Six

With three large bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a large country kitchen and separate dining room, there is ample space to make yourselves at home, even on the rainy days!

Garden Area With Hot Tub

The private garden is fully fenced making it an ideal play area for children or dogs, and the little gate leading to the secret sit-ooterie opens into the perfect spot to sit with a morning coffee overlooking the farm landscape. There is also a decking area with seating for six, hot tub and a stone BBQ stand ready for your garden party in the Summer! Disposable BBQs are not included in your stay so please do bring these with you if you plan to BBQ.

Visit Kelso

With Kelso a short five minute drive or 35 minute riverside walk away, you are close enough to pop in for a lovely meal or browse around the shops but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of country life.

Enjoy a day out at Kelso Races, or take the riverside walk from the farm into town to enjoy a pub lunch or spot of shopping. Fly a kite, meet the animals or watch the combine harvesting our grain in late Summer, whilst sipping something chilled in the garden.

Things To Do

We have gathered a list of the best activities to try during your stay, whether you fancy your hand at some archery, want to tackle the trails on your mountain bike or perhaps fish for salmon on the famous River Tweed, there really is something for everyone. Check out our handpicked list of favourite things to do for immediate inspiration!
