Pretty country cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very peaceful area. All amenities in the property were great, though maybe more info on recycling would be appreiated. Dining chairs were a bit uncomfortable but otherwise nothing to complain about. Linda greeted us very warmly and was at the end of a phone if we needed her which we didn't as it was all set out lovely along with a very much appreciated welcome basket. Jedburgh was a car parking, free tourist attractions, great coffee houses, a marvellous cafe (Simply Scottish....not so simple!), lovely deli/boutique shops. With many more quaint Border villages around. Melrose is certainly one to visit. Lovely friendly people everywhere.

Part of the attractive former stable courtyard at the Crailing Estate, Crailing Cottage sits amidst beautiful rolling parkland in the Teviot Valley. The Oxnam Water flows through the Crailing Estate on route to joining the River Teviot providing excellent riverside walks from the doorstep. Children can cycle safely around the park and for more extensive cycling and walking there are a number of marked routes around Kelso including the Borders Abbey Way and the popular 64-mile St Cuthbert's Way which passes close to the house as it criss-crosses the Borders on its way to Holy Island. For keen riders, there is a riding stables nearby.

For fishing parties, Crailing Cottage is incredibly convenient for the prime Middle Tweed beats around Kelso in addition to reasonably priced fishing on the Teviot close to the house and fun trout fishing on the Oxnam Water which flows through the estate.

The area is also a golfer's paradise with 22 courses within a 30 mile radius ranging from challenging PGA Championship courses, to picturesque links and parkland courses to suit all standards including the Roxburghe Championship course and well-regarded courses at Jedburgh and Melrose just a pitch and putt away.

Crailing is five miles from the attractive, bustling market town of Jedburgh, home to a good selection of independent shops, galleries, pubs and cafes. Steeped in history, Jedburgh boasts the magnificent remains of a 12th century Augustinian Abbey, the imposing Castle Jail, the only existing example of its kind in Scotland and the 16th Century home of Mary Queen of Scots, a visit to which reveals the fascinating but tragic story of her life.

Seven miles in the other direction is the bustling market town of Kelso described by Sir Walter Scott as 'the most beautiful, if not the most romantic village in Scotland.' Today it retains much of its original charm with an interesting range of independent shops including an excellent deli, butchers and fishmonger, a monthly farmer's market and a good selection of lively pubs and restaurants. Floors Castle, the majestic home of the Duke and Duchess of Roxburghe is well worth a visit followed by afternoon tea at the newly-renovated Roxburghe Hotel. Kelso plays host to a number of events throughout the year including regular National Hunt race meets at the famous race course, the ancient custom of the Common Ridings of the town boundaries and the famous Borders Rugby 7s games.

The beguiling town of Melrose is 14 miles away from the house tucked between the Tweed and the gorse-backed Eildon Hills. As well as offering a good range of independent shops, pubs and restaurants, this picturesque town is home of rugby 7s, the annual Border's Book Festival, and the evocative ruins of Melrose Abbey. Stop off on route at Main Street Trading in St Boswells to visit the award-winning bookshop and deli.

For day trips slightly further afield, the cashmere mills at Hawick and Selkirk are nearby, the stunning Northumberland coast is an hour's drive away with miles of rocky coves punctuated by a chain of imposing castles including Alnwick and Bamburgh and miles of pristine sandy beaches for walking, riding, kite-surfing and sandcastle-building. The Georgian splendour of Edinburgh is only 48 miles away and is an easy day trip by car.
