The holiday cottages themselves sit within 600acres of lush farmland in the heart of the Borders. In the local village Smailholm Pottery and all its wares, Smailholm Tower with its beautiful views and/or Mellerstain House and gardens to name but a few. A little further afield (approximately 6miles) is the market town of Kelso with more history, architecture and independent shops covering all tastes.

We can help point you in the right direction for equipment and fishing permits or if you have all of that, picnic supplies.
