About the property

2 Bedroom 2 Bathroom Apartment on edge of Earlston village. Lovely walking area

Charming, cosy 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with wood burning stove, pretty garden and lovely views. The Hideaway is set on the edge of the pretty Scottish Borders village of Earlston, with lots of way marked countryside walks from the door.

This quaint and quirky apartment is the perfect location for discovering the Scottish Borders and for trips to the city of Edinburgh, which is 25 miles away straight up the A68. It is a 5 minute drive to the new Borders railway station of Tweedbank, where there is lots of free car parking, and you can be in the centre of Edinburgh in less than an hour by train.

The Borders towns of Melrose, Jedburgh, Kelso, Selkirk and St Boswells are all a short distance by car.

About Mrs Daniele Friell

Daniele and Bill have lived in the Scottish Borders for 14 years, and love the area. There are great opportunities for walking, cycling, sightseeing historic ruins and towers, as well as the odd trip to Edinburgh for a complete change.

Why Mrs Daniele Friell chose Earlston

We think the Hideaway offers the perfect cosy retreat for those seeking to visit the Scottish Borders. We love the village which offers everything, including shops, pubs and cafes - even an art gallery. The walks from the door are easy to follow (all waymarked), riverside, woodland and hill walks are all close by.

What makes this apartment unique

Recently re-decorated, with sanded wooden floors - this apartment is characterful and quirky, but has everything you could need.

Extrem gemütliche Ferienwohnung (mit Cheminee und Klavier!)

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt in der heimelig und sehr individuell eingerichteten Ferienwohnung von Danielle, die mit Cheminee (samt ausreichend Holz) und sogar einem Klavier wirklich besondere Extras zu bieten hat. Vielen Dank, Danielle, für die originellen, leckeren Willkommensgeschenke! Auch den kleinen Garten mit Sitzplatz haben wir genossen. Die Küche ist super ausgestattet (incl. Spül- und Waschmaschine), einzig ein grosser Topf (für Spaghetti) und eine Bratpfanne wären noch wünschenswert.

In Earlston findet sich alles, was man zum Überleben braucht (kleiner Supermarkt, Tankstelle, Metzger, Fishχps, Pub ...). In der direkten Umgebung gibt's jede Menge Kultur und Natur und vom Nachbarort aus kommt man unkompliziert per Zug nach Edinburgh. Wir würden jeder Zeit gerne wiederkommen!
