Overview

About the property

Sleeping 5 in 3 bedrooms. Two miles from Denholm. Walking routes nearby.

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.

The side of the property leads onto a grassy stretch backed by woodland which leads down to the Hassendean Burn and is a super spot where children can leap into their wellies and delight in a simple game of pooh sticks or perhaps dabble for minnows in the summer months.

The property benefits from free Wifi for when you feel the need to connect to the outside world and entertainment includes a flat-screen TV, Blu-ray DVD, books and a games console for lazy nights in or wet-weather days.

Excellent, high quality.

  • 5 of 5

The property exceeded our expectations. High quality of decor, fittings etc and kitchen was very well equipped. Very clean property inside. Ideal for family with or without dogs! We stayed in January and enjoyed it, but can imagine this is a fantastic location in the summer, being next to a burn and dene.
