Lovely cottage. Warm, cosy, immaculate. Loved the bathroom. Car parking in the street just outside. The cottage is a 20 minute walk from Melrose and we walked into town along the Tweed riverbank and then back along the road. Interesting walks nearby. Only downsides - the ceiling height in the bedrooms is low and you really need a car as there are no shops or pubs in Newstead. For a quiet break in the Scottish Borders, this cottage is really good value for money. We would definitely go back.
We had a fantastic 4 day break in the new year. The weather was very cold but the cottage and shepherd’s hut were cosy and there were some excellent walks right on our doorstep. The children loved playing with Tilly and Tarka, the 2 dogs and Danielle and her family were excellent hosts. One place we would recommend visiting was Born in the Borders - a micro brewery and gin distillery. The lunch there was delicious and the kids had an amazing time grass sledging whilst we sampled the gin!
