A far cry from city life, this cosy gate lodge benefits from a country location mid-way between the charming market towns of Kelso and Jedburgh.
A cosy gate lodge for two in the heart of the Scottish Borders
In the nearby estate you will find gentle country walks leading down to the riverside for peaceful summer picnics under the trees, while those seeking something a little more high-energy can join the Jubilee Path for a glorious 12 mile circular walk taking in the woodland and riverside trails of this picturesque area.
Perfect for couples, the interior is understated and serene, soothed by a carefully selected colour scheme, classic furnishings and soft linens. Unusually for a property of this size, the lodge benefits from a separate dining room which means friends can visit for supper or it can double-up as a place to work or study when those emails can’t wait.
The sitting room is a wonderfully cosy spot for cradling a creamy cappuccino in front of a roaring log burner, while the high-backed armchairs from OKA are perfect for enjoying a good read from the books on offer here or perhaps just an afternoon nap!
The bedroom sits to the rear with views across the fields and farmland, and the bed can either be configured to a super king or twin beds as preferred. The bed linen is 600 thread count for a touch of luxury.
Outside is a pretty cottage garden with picnic bench and charcoal barbecue, and there’s the addition of a lockable shed for outdoor gear and bikes too.
The accommodation is all on the ground floor and therefore may be suitable for less mobile guests. Please note there is one step up from the inner hall to the kitchen.
Sitting room with two-seater sofa, two armchairs, log burner (with initial supply of logs provided), wall-mounted TV with Freeview, bookcase with a good selection of books.
