On the banks of the River Tweed, The Bothy at Dryburgh is a cosy bolthole which offers rural tranquility in a countryside setting.
The Bothy at Dryburgh is situated at the end of a no-through road and is a charming and welcoming stone cottage, perfect as a base to explore the multitude of local attractions such as the neo-classical pavilion with its fantastic Temple of the Muses sculpture; the mighty Wallace Monument; the spectacular ruins of Dryburgh Abbey and the Dryburgh Suspension Bridge which offers a gentle stroll into the village of St. Boswells for a leisurely lunch.
At the heart of The Bothy is a compact open-plan living space with French doors which open out to a newly built conservatory to the rear with views across the surrounding farmland.
The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of thoughtful extras and there is a spacious ground floor bedroom complete with crisp linens and detailing which make this a real home-from-home.
