River Cottage


River Cottage is a charming retreat set in a peaceful and secluded spot that is ideal for relaxing and escaping the stresses of modern life.  Set on the beautiful Old Melrose Estate near Melrose (2.5 miles) the cottage occupies a gorgeous woodland setting on a peninsula that has the River Tweed on 3 sides with miles of pretty walks and riverside trails that just beg to be explored.  Guests have the use of the stunning Victorian walled garden and can wander to the Estate’s tearooms for a light lunch or a slice of cake.

£550-795/wk | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom | 2 Dogs

This luxurious cottage consists of a large kitchen with dining table that comfortably sits six, a separate sitting room with wood burning stove and downstairs WC.  Upstairs is a bedroom with a King size bed and snug/ dressing room with a sofa and TV, a second twin bedroom (zip linked to form super king size) and a bathroom with a WC and a bath with a shower over it.

This converted coach house has been lovingly refurbished throughout and is presented in a pretty country cottage style that is a clever blend of traditional and modern.  At the heart of the inviting sitting room is a wood-burning stove that is perfect for warming up in front of after the day’s activities.  The dining kitchen is very smart and well-equipped for cooking up a storm in style and the ground floor is kept cosy throughout by underfloor heating.

Outside the private, Victorian walled garden is a delightful place to sit and eat, admire the plants and flowers and delight at the chickens and rare breed pigs wandering around.  Children can play in the woods where they can build dens and let their imaginations run wild.

What’s included: Bed linen and towels, oil central heating, wood-burning stove (plus logs), high speed WiFi, TV & DVD.  A maximum of 2 dogs are welcome at an additional charge.  No smoking.  The owners live next door but the cottage has its own parking area and is not overlooked, so they are on hand for any queries but are also very respectful of guests’ privacy and are happy to leave guests to enjoy the peace and quiet.
