About the property


Allanbank Cottages are situated in the beautiful Scottish Borders. We offer flexible and comfortable accommodation in our three cottages. We are perfectly located for guests who are looking for a relaxing break and for those who want to explore the many attractions of the Borders and North Northumberland. We are within easy distance of Edinburgh and Newcastle for guests wishing to visit those vibrant cities. Owners Liz and Mike Hardy live on site with their family and will offer you a warm welcome and help to make your holiday or short break a great experience. We can arrange fishing for you in season, and as home to Allanbank Arts, guests are welcome to take part in our programme of art classes or to book individual or group tuition in our beautiful art studio.

About Liz Hardy

Liz and Mike Hardy have lived at Allanbank Courtyard in the beautiful Scottish Borders with their family since 2007. We moved from Edinburgh to enjoy a quieter life and a more rural upbringing for their 5 children. Liz works at Allanbank full time, combining running the cottages with managing our small art's centre and refurbishing furniture. Mike is a teacher at a local school. We live next door to the cottages, so are usually on hand to help.

Why Liz Hardy chose Scottish Borders

The eastern side of the Scottish Borders is a bit of a hidden gem. The coastline is stunning, the local towns quiet and attractive, and there is great walking, cycling and fishing all nearby. The area is rich with history, and if castles and stately homes are your thing - we have them in abundance!

What makes this cottage unique

At Allanbank Holiday Cottages we go the extra mile for all our guests. We can arrange art tuition/yoga sessions for you and you are welcome to join any of our activities in the studio. We can recommend local places to eat, and things to do, and will even give you a lift to the local pub if you give us some notice!
