After enjoying a great day out in the Borders, return to peaceful Burnbrae Holidays and relax in front of your cosy wood burner stove. Or, you could just admire the views from your south-facing conservatory watching the many birds including woodpeckers, sparrow hawks, buzzards, house and tree sparrows, heron, tits, robins and finches. You may be lucky and see the deer or badgers in our fields or the otters in the Eden Water within 500m from the cottages
