From the dining area of the living room, there is direct, level access to a south-facing conservatory with splendid views across the secluded garden, river and the Tweed valley to the Cheviot hills and the border between Scotland and England.

    Burnbrae is situated 3 miles north of the abbey town of Kelso with its cobbled square quaint shops and fantasic restaurants. We are located within 40 minutes drive of Edinburgh and the east coast fishing villages, superb coastal scenery, Border towns, Cheviot and Ettrick Hills. Ideal for visiting the many  abbeys, gardens and stately homes (Floors Castle and Mellerstain nearby). This is an ideal area for those who enjoy walking and cycling with secure bike storage and a heated drying cupboard in each cottage. Not only are there some lovely short walks within Burnbrae but there are also walks that start directly from the site with a wide choice of walking to suite all levels, where you can take in the spectacular scenery. Cycling is a particular pleasure with a good network of quiet lanes around Burnbrae. In the hills there are plenty of tracks and the Glentress Forest provides extensive cycle tracks which are separate from the walking paths (mountain bikes can be hired at the main entrance to the forest). Horse riding is a very popular past time in the Scottish Borders, as is fishing and golf, with numerous courses within easy reach of Burnbrae. The Scottish Borders also has a wealth of culture and history and many beautiful gardens and historic properties to visit. For those happy to travel a little further afield, the Northumberland border is just six miles away and the Northumberland National Park is twelve miles.

    There is free WiFi in each cottage and a heated drying room. We have a lockable cycle store, barbecue, washing machine and tumble drier available for guests use. There is a travel cot & a high chair available for use in any of the cottages.
