Stay in Scotland in style in The Five Turrets, an extraordinary historic holiday home in the Scottish Borders. There's a dramatic triple height living space, four bedrooms comfortably sleeping eight people, turrets, log burner and gorgeous views. Recommended by The Times, The Sunday Times and Sawday's.
The Five Turrets is a stylish self catering holiday home with fairytale castle good looks, set in a B-listed property at the heart of the Scottish Borders.
The luxury townhouse was named by The Sunday Times as one of the UK's top 25 self catering holiday cottages and featured by The Times in its selection of the best Scottish hideaways. It is currently offering a money-back guarantee for future bookings to offer reassurance to guests concerned about Covid-19 travel restrictions.
Step inside and prepare to be bowled over by an extraordinary blend of style and substance and enough space to comfortably accommodate eight people in four big bedrooms.
The heart of the comprehensively refurbished home is the unique triple height living space, with sofas arranged around a fabulous wood burning stove, a huge dining table set up to provide commanding views over the stunning Ettrick valley and an open kitchen to captivate the keenest cook.
An oak and glass stair leads up to the mezzanine library, stocked with hundreds of books, more sofas and a smart 49 inch TV connected to the free speedy broadband available in every room.
And when it is time to slip between the Egyptian cotton sheets, there are four warm and inviting bedrooms to choose from - two super kings (which can also be set up as twins) plus a king size and a double.
Built around 1870 in the Scottish Baronial style, this historic listed building is ideally located at the heart of the Borders in the Royal Burgh of Selkirk, with road and nearby rail links to Edinburgh to the north and England to the south.
Working with some of the best local businesses it offers guests a range of exciting personalised packages. From a personal chef to archery in the garden, it’s covered.
Guests who can bear to drag themselves away from the comforts of the house will enjoy a region steeped in history and reminders of the region’s colourful past as the home of the notorious and bloodthirsty Border Reivers.
There’s some of the best hillwalking in Scotland on the doorstep and easy access to world-class cycling trails (with secure bike storage on site) and golf courses. For anglers, there’s the Tweed, while wildlife lovers have the opportunity to spot golden eagles, ospreys and red squirrels.
And if that’s all too energetic, guests can put their feet up in the garden or retire to one of the local bars and restaurants a short walk away for a bit of rest and relaxation.
