Scottish Border Cottages is a family run business which aims to provide the perfect balance between luxury and character in a stunning location, whilst offering the freedom of self-catering accommodation. We wanted to have a cottage for ourselves, our children and dogs and we didn’t want to compromise on the luxuries of hotels we had stayed in the past but which perhaps weren't as practical to take the whole clan. We wanted somewhere that was child friendly, would be great for dogs, and above all, would be provide luxury in an informal, and relaxing environment. So when we decided to create self-catering accommodation ourselves, these were the benchmarks and Glenview certainly ticks all the right boxes.
Glenview is a recently restored cottage that is over one hundred and sixty years old. It is situated next to the green in the attractive village of Kirk Yetholm right at the end (or beginning) of the Pennine Way. The cottage has been renovated to an extremely high standard and contains all the luxuries you would expect while maintaining it’s olde worlde charm and cosiness. It has three bedrooms, two with designer ensuite shower rooms and a twin room. Sleeping 6, with the ability to sleep another two on a sofa bed, the cottage is deceptively large. From the moment you arrive and find your welcome pack to having a bath and wrapping yourself in the white cotton bathrobe, you know you’re going to have a relaxing holiday. Here are some of the comments left by our previous guests. Whether you’re coming for a week, a longer holiday or a weekend or midweek break, we look forward to welcoming you here very soon.
Kirk Yetholm, and its half mile distant twin village of Town Yetholm are separated by the Bowmont River. They sit on the edge of the stunning Cheviot Hills and are a couple of miles from the English border and the Northumberland National Park. Kirk Yetholm is ideally placed for exploring the beautiful Scottish Borders, and is in easy reach of Bamburgh, Lindesfarne (Holy Island) the beaches of Northumberland and the Berwickshire coast. Some of the best salmon and trout fishing is available on the Rivers Tweed and Teviot only 15 minutes away. The nearest “large” town is Kelso home to Floors Castle, seat of the Duke of Roxburghe and Kelso racecourse. Have a look at the “Things to do” section of the web site.
