A beautifully-presented cottage in a delightful, rural position with views over the River Tweed and the Eildon Hills. Close to St Boswells and Melrose, with river walks and dining at the Dryburgh Abbey Hotel on the doorstep, Newmains Cottage is an ideal base for fishing parties and families exploring the historic local area.
A charming, period cottage from the outside, Newmains Cottage has been artfully extended to incorporate a superb, light-filled, open-plan dining, kitchen and seating area with fabulous views. From here French doors open onto a raised, decked terrace providing a superb spot for dining al fresco during the summer months. The adjoining sitting room is a wonderful place to relax whatever the weather with stripped wooden floors, sumptuous sofas, cosy wool throws, muted tweeds and a wood burner for the cooler months.
The spacious ground floor master bedroom includes a feature sleigh bed and superb original range fireplace. There’s an adjacent dressing room and wonderful panelled bathroom with claw foot bath. The accommodation is completed with two charming twin bedrooms on the first floor which share the smart, contemporary family bathroom on the ground floor.
Outside is a large, fully-enclosed garden in addition to the decked dining area with outside furniture and barbecue.
We enjoyed our stay at Newmains Cottage very much. The cottage itself is very comfortable and well equipped with every facility one would need. On arrival it felt very welcoming with a hamper left on the kitchen table, fresh flowers and the whole place spotless! The management company were very helpful and not at all intrusive and access to the cottage was efficiently arranged - all by e-mail.
St. Boswells and Dryburgh are set amongst glorious countryside with far reaching views. Great for walkers and nature lovers like us. Edinburgh, Galashiels and Kelso for example, are within easy reach by car and motoring in this part of the country is easy and unhurried. In St. Boswells there is an excellent butcher (the best scotch pies ever!) and a nice café/bookshop as well as a Post Office and local Co-op shop.
I think it highly likely we will want to return.
