    Scottish Borders self catering cottage, sleeps 6, pets welcome.

    Coltercleuch Cottage is surrounded by rolling hills, gurgling rivers and fresh air, yet it's only a 10 minute drive to the nearest Border town of Hawick.  It is situated on the banks of the Teviot Water and provides a perfect base for exploring the surrounding countryside. Ideally located for MTB, cycling, fishing, golfing, hunting, walking, and visiting the many historic border towns or just relaxing at the cottage.  

    If you can’t stay for a whole week or two, short breaks of 3 or more nights are welcome.  And if you decide on a last minute break, we are happy to accept late bookings.  Well behaved dogs are welcome.  We request that they stay in the living and kitchen areas and are kept off the furniture.  Dogs likely to chase birds and small animals should be kept on a lead when in the garden areas.

    Colterscleuch Cottage has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing. The spacious accommodation has a large lounge with a sofa and armchairs, TV, BluRay player, Wi-Fi, books & games and large patio doors leading out to the sheltered private garden. 

    The large dining kitchen has a farmhouse table, fridge freezer, washing machine, electric oven and hob and a microwave. 

    There are 2 large double bedrooms. One with a kingsize bed, the other with a superking + single / triple bed option.  There is also a fold down single bed for small adults or children.  A cot and high chair can be supplied free of charge when requested.

    The family size bathroom has a bath, separate corner shower unit and heated towel rail.

    Central heating and double glazing ensures a cosy stay all year round.  All fuel costs are included in the booking as are bed linen and towels.  There is parking on site for 2 or more vehicles.  The essentials of tea, coffee and milk will also be waiting for you free of charge. 

    The nearest shops and supermarkets are only 8 miles (10 mins) away in Hawick.  Asda and Sainsbury's deliver groceries in the area – why not arrange to have your shopping delivered for your stay?

    There is an abundance of wildlife surrounding the cottage and it's easy to spend an hour or so watching the many birds come and go at the feeders in the garden, including pheasants.  Deer also wander through the garden some mornings and evenings.  We have our own hens and their free range eggs are a delicious breakfast addition.  If you enjoy watching their antics, the girls love some company and chat while they produce their next batch of eggs.

    There are many Border towns and attractions in the area.  Hawick has rich textile history and has many mill shops -  if you love clothing, you can pick up some amazing cashmere bargains.  And throughout the year there are festivals held for all ages and interests.

    Mountain bikers and cyclists can enjoy some wonderful cycle routes.  The Southern Borders Loop is a 50 mile circuit or 75 mile loop on virtually traffic free roads through some of the wildest countryside through Newcastleton and Hawick.  The Abbey Cycle Route is 55 miles passing through 4 historic towns with wonderful Abbeys.  Best of all for off roaders is the Justice Trail with 40+ miles of great cycling in the hills around nearby Jedburgh.  It also has options to exit the route every 5km.

    Fishers can enjoy grayling, salmon and trout fishing on many beats on the River Teviot and the Tweed.

    Those wanting to get back to nature can revel in the nearby Forestry at Craik in the heart of the Southern Uplands.  There are walks and cycle routes to suit all abilities and nature lovers will love spotting red squirrel from the hides.  Newcastleton Forest area is steeped in the history of the Reivers and cross-border raiding.  It crosses the border to England where it meets with Kielder forest, making it part of the largest forest in Britain.  The 7 Stanes cycle route runs through here.  This vast forest is used by walkers, cyclists and horses.

    Stargazers will love the lack of light pollution and vast skies.  A cloudless night at Colterscleuch can be breathtaking.
