Reconnect with family and friends with a getaway to Melrose, a pretty town in the Scottish Borders. It lies in a valley, surrounded by the stunning Eildon Hills, which means spectacular views all around. Visit the ruins of Melrose Abbey which dates back to the 12th century, and immerse yourselves in history with a trip to the Three Hills Roman Heritage Centre. There are two National Trust Gardens that provide restoration in beautiful settings: Priorwood which has a gorgeous orchard, and Harmony Gardens which is packed with pretty flowers. Our big cottages in Melrose give you and your group the chance to make the most of this picturesque part of Scotland.
Many of our cottages welcome children, and some come with cots and high chairs, so you can provide comfort and rest for the little ones in your party. We provide comfortable living areas that are designed for the ultimate in relaxation after a busy day exploring, many of which are open plan to make it easy to chat as you prepare meals.
Coldingham, Eyemouth, and Jedburgh nearby also have comfortable and well-equipped big cottages for enjoying the area. Take a trip to the Tempest Brew Co in Galashiels to sample some local drinks. Entertain young and old by visiting the Scottish Borders Donkey Sanctuary in St Boswells. Delve into days gone by with an afternoon at Sir Walter Scott’s Courtroom in Selkirk.
