About the Owner

My name is Claire Macdonald. I live at Harleyburn Coach House with my husband Donald and our youngest child Kirsty who is 16. Out two older boys have now left home and are studying at university. We also have a very friendly German Pointer called Zac. We have eight lovely free range hens that frequently come around the cottages. You are very welcome to feed them and help yourself to the delicious free range eggs they provide during your stay.

Lovely hosts, accomodations, and garden after walking along Hadrian's Wall

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted by our stay. Our hosts were warm and welcoming. The garden was stunning and an extra treat. The property is well-maintained and beautiful. We enjoyed the comfort after hiking for five hours. The location and parking are easy. This is a great option and a very good value.

Location

From the Owner

We bought Harleyburn Coach House and the Saddlery and Stables cottages back in 2000. We simply fell in love with the properties as soon as we saw them. They sit two acres of stunning private gardens very close to Melrose. The properties are made from very attractive local sandstone and have views over landscaped gardens to the beautiful Borders countryside and the Eildon Hills. We find the people very friendly in Melrose, the quality of life is second to none and if you feel the need for city attractions Edinburgh is very easily accessible from here.
