Tastefully renovated and decorated throughout, this Jedburgh cottage is an ideal base for relaxing in the spacious south facing garden, or exploring this historic and unspoilt holiday haven.

A lovely, quirky house to stay in with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house was cosy and comfortable which was perfect for our relaxing, home from home, break. The house was clean and tidy and well equipped for cooking meals. The large garden out the back was great for the dog too. There were lots of nice walks to town, short or long depending on which way you went. The neighbours were all friendly and welcoming. Mark (the owner) was very helpful and quick to respond if we needed to call. We would recommend this to our friends and family as we would return.

Charming property near to Jedburgh

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, Primrose Cottage was clean and tidy, which is important to us. Everything was as advertised, and all our needs were met.

The cottage is located in a quiet area, but has much to offer within a short driving or walking distance. There are the most beautiful walks nearby and we enjoyed the countryside. In addition, there are lovely places to eat nearby.

Contact with the owner was efficient and professional.

If you are looking for a quiet getaway, I whole heartedly recommend this property.

Cosy cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely,cosy yet spacious cottage in a very attractive area of the Scottish borders.It is in a great location, being out of the town of Jedburgh, but within walking distance through attractive scenery.

The cottage was clean and welcoming on arrival.Loved the diner kitchen, which was well-equipped and great for family mealtimes.

The log burner is a bonus for the cooler evenings, as is browsing through the many books in the sitting room, and the occasional tinkle on the piano!

We liked sitting in the sunshine in the large tree-lined garden with the brook running along the outer edge, and the lovely views beyond.A lovely play area for the dog!

There are many attractive walks in the area- and it was so relaxing to enjoy them, and to return and soak in the large bath,or refresh in the rain shower. The beds were comfortable.

Jedburgh Abbey is stunning and there are many historic attractions that are well worth a visit.

We certainly hope to return,we enjoyed both the opportunities to explore this lovely area and the comforts of the cottage.

From the Owner

I brought up a family in the Borders before returning to London for work reasons. But London only increased my keenness to return, so I bought Primrose Cottage in 1998. The Borders is a vast and tranquil area, off the beaten track, yet only an hour from Edinburgh. I think you will agree that it is a hidden gem, unaffected by fad and change. Quiet country lanes, rolling landscape, hills, rivers and glens all help to evoke something unique and just as beautiful as the Highlands. The sandscapes of Northumberland are only an hour away, so you have a bit of everything here. It is great walking and cycling country and the Borderers are friendly and helpful; true to themselves and their beloved heritage.

Special interest holidays:

Arguably the greatest fishing river in Britain - The Tweed - is nearby and its tributary - The Teviot - is on the doorstep (not literally!) The Junction Pool at Kelso is 9 miles away. Great for cycling - there are lots of waysigned routes and the owner has himself written a cycle guidebook to the area (available at the house). Great also for walking - St Cuthbert's way passes the very road the house is on. Many designated trails nearby.


It is just over 30 miles to the great sandy beaches of Northumberland - Seahouses, Beadnell, Bamburgh. Great places for the kids to play and for dog walking. About an hour's drive along wonderful quiet old roads. Watch out for cyclists!

The countryside around this Jedburgh cottage is famed for its beauty and there are many walks and drives that allow you to explore the area. The nearby towns of Melrose and Peebles are charming and you can easily spend a day discovering the shops, restaurants and cafes.
