Lovely and unique place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Staying at carriage mews is a unique experience. History is all around you and that's lovely. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the castle grounds offer various great walks. Duns is very close by, just a 10 to 15 min walk away.

Our little appartment is furnished with old furniture which adds to the atmosphere. The beds are good.

For tall travelers such as myself:

single beds are 80x195cm and the double bed is 135x195cm. So my husband and I strongly preferred the single beds.

Thanks for letting us stay!

Other Activities:

In addition to local Trout and Salmon fishing, there is much to see and do locally. There are golf courses suited to every style and level, secluded sandy beaches within 30 minutes drive, horse-riding, quad-biking and much more. Guests may also wish to visit local landmarks such as Abbotsford House (the home of Sir Walter Scott) and other stately homes such as Manderston House and Floors Castle, explore neighbouring market towns of Kelso, Melrose, Jedburgh or Hawick (famous for Cashmere) or arrange a tour of Glenkinchie Distillery or Rosslyn Chapel (made famous in Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code). There are always many local cultural events taking place, including Reivers Week in July, The Duns Show in early August and the Borders Heritage Festival in September. With all of this and Edinburgh's famous International Festivals and Hogmanay celebrations, guests are spoiled for choice.

Carriage Mews is part of a substantial stone property set in 1200 acres of scenic parkland on the historic Duns Castle estate and just a short walk from the castle and the estate's own nature reserve.

Duns Castle Estate is located on the edge of the small town of Duns in the Scottish Borders. The property is within easy reach of the cities and international airports of Edinburgh (1 hour), Newcastle (75 mins) and Glasgow (90 mins). Duns is only 20 minutes from Berwick-upon-Tweed, 3.5 hours by train from London (Kings Cross).
