Sitting just two miles from the charming village of Denholm, Brodie’s Burn has all the right ingredients for a peaceful rural getaway. Bounded by scenic Border countryside and the sound of trickling water from the nearby Hassendean Burn, this warm and inviting three bedroom cottage is a super base to put a busy week behind you and take a break whatever the season.
Brodie’s Burn sits at the end of a small terrace of cottages in a tiny farm hamlet and enjoys a tranquil setting at the foot of the Minto Hills where you can unwind and soak up the peace, quiet and fresh country air on long walks with your four-legged friend. Inside, this pretty cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The accommodation sits on one floor with a cosy sitting room, three bedrooms, and a well equipped kitchen where you can relax after a busy day exploring the beautiful Borders countryside.
