Enjoy all the history and scenery our beautiful area has to offer and then come home to your very own country cottage. Bread Oven Cottage is an integral part of our 'B' listed home here at The Granary in Smailholm, 6 miles from Kelso in the Scottish Borders. Initially built in the early 17th century and extended throught the next two hundred years or so. Originally it provided grain, flour and bread within the village before becoming the local grocers shop and later a plant nursery and Cooking school.
Now under Andy & Sue Keen's custodianship, the building has been carefully upgraded to offer our guests comfortable and unusual accommodation. The cottage retains its historic character whilst incorporating modern energy saving insulation, lighting and appliances. By sympathetically upgrading we have managed to improve our Energy Performance rating from an E to a C. We may live in a historic building but that doesn't mean we are not committed to making it as sustainable and relevant to the future as we can!
Just the two of you? We offer discounts for reduced occupancy and longer stays so whatever your needs we have the perfect location for a very special stay in the Scottish Borders. Book now and book direct for a relaxing break in historic Bread Oven Cottage!
From the A68, go past the Smailholm village sign. The Granary's drive is just past the 2nd house on the left. From the village, take the Melrose road in the village. You'll go past some woodland on the left and in about a quarter of a mile you'll come to another group of houses. The house is the fourth on the left, with the drive immediately before the house. You'll see the old granary steps up the side of the house when you get very close.
You would be best to have your own transport, either car or bike. There is a very infrequent bus service to the village. The nearest train station is Galashiels, 10 miles away.
