Why Cat Macdonald-Home chose Scottish Borders

Berwickshire is an ideal location to explore the best of the Scottish Borders and North Northumberland. It is also just an hour from Edinburgh. Our properties are easily accessed from Berwick-upon-Tweed station which is on the East Coast mainline and around three and a half hours from London and 40 minutes from Edinburgh by train. The closest airports are Edinburgh and Newcastle which are both around 90 minutes drive.

What makes this cottage unique

Our properties combine the traditional features of the buildings with newly-renovated interiors. They are furnished in a contemporary style, but with country-cottage elements such as dressed stone fireplaces, wooden floorboards made from trees on the Wedderburn estate that have fallen in storms and log-burning stoves. Kitchens are fully-equipped to allow for everything you might have at home; bathrooms offer 24-hour hot water, fluffy towels and luxurious L'Occitane toiletries. Wide-screen televisions and comfortable sofas provide relaxing living areas. The properties all have gardens and are surrounded by mature parkland which allows for rural walks. There are a host of attractions around, ranging from golf to children's soft play, swimming pools and beaches.
