The Laurels enjoys an idyllic rural location, yet close to the very pretty market towns of Kelso and Jedburgh. Step outdoors and you will find wonderful walking, fishing and golfing nearby, as well as an award winning restaurant right on the doorstep.
Finished in a gentle colour scheme of cool greys and soothing neutrals with just a dash of Provençal style, this is an incredibly welcoming space for rest and relaxation.
The generous accommodation sits on one floor and comprises a large open plan living space and doors leading out to the patio where you can enjoy wonderful views over the paddock and fields beyond.
The kitchen features a Rayburn range cooker when you want to rustle up a winning casserole, and the dining area has plenty of space to accommodate one or two extra dinner guests for a little socialising over supper.
The bedroom is a calming space for long lazy lie-ins, or alternatively head outdoors for breakfast on the patio and some fresh country air.
Not forgetting the four-legged members of the party, The Laurels welcomes two dogs with plenty of scope for exercise in the adjoining field which extends into some lovely scenic walking trails.
A short 2.6 mile drive will take you to Harestanes Visitor Centre which features a busy events programme, art exhibitions, a craft centre and coffee shop, as well as lovely selection of woodland walks and cycling trails from relaxed ambles to more energetic climbs.
There are four walks which start and finish at Harestanes including access to St Cuthbert's Way, the stunning long-distance walking route which follows the legend of St. Cuthbert on his journey from Melrose to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne.
Alternatively for amazing panoramic vistas across the Border heartlands, take a hike to the Waterloo Monument, a 150 foot tower built between 1817 and 1824 to commemorate the famous Battle, finished off by a much deserved lunch at the Caddy Mann at Mounthooly.GROUND FLOOR
