Fabulous newly-renovated farm steading beside the River Tweed with the beguiling town of Melrose close by. A peaceful spot to relax and enjoy historic views. The ancient Temple of the Muses overlooks the Steadings.
We are thrilled to announce the launch of Dryburgh Steadings; four newly-renovated holiday homes that have been designed around an attractive courtyard. Created from lovingly restored, striking pink sandstone and weather-boarded farm steadings, the hamlet sits at the end of a no-through lane in a peaceful position beside the banks of the River Tweed.
This romantic pocket of the Borders has a fascinating tale to tell. The ancient Temple of the Muses overlooks the Steadings, with the legendary River Tweed below, punctuated by the charming Dryburgh Suspension Bridge which traverses the river below the Steadings. A five-minute walk along the lane leads to the evocative ruins of Dryburgh Abbey, the final resting place of Sir Walter Scott. The adjacent hotel is a good spot for meals or drinks. More distant views across open farmland take in the shapely summits of the triple-peaked Eildon Hills and the imposing statue of Sir William Wallace looking down onto the Steadings from atop a neighbouring hillside. Other highlights on the doorstep including the beguiling town of Melrose, Sir Walter Scott’s home at Abbotsford and Scott’s View, a celebrated spot from which to admire the magnificent undulating Borders’ countryside unfurl below.
Dryburgh Steading Four sits at one end of the hamlet and the immaculately-presented accommodation comprises a kitchen with dining area, sitting room with additional dining space, log burner and French doors to the garden, additional seating area on the landing and two bedrooms each with their own bath or shower room.
