Self Catering Holiday Cottages in the Scottish Borders
Offering three warm, spacious one bedroom self catering holiday cottages and set in an idyllic countryside location, Burnbrae Holidays is located just 3 miles from the Scottish Borders town of Kelso, perfect for exploring both sides of the Scotland / England border.
With its abbey, cobbled market square and streets. Kelso is noted for its abundance of unique independent shops, delicous restaurants and cafes and pubs (including Scotlands first Micropub). Kelso lies at the confluence of the rivers Tweed and Teviot, the Tweed is of course famous globally for salmon & trout fishing.
During your stay at Burnbrae, you can enjoy many activities including walking or cycling in the beautiful countryside, either from your cottage or nearby; visit the numerous historic sites including Kelso Abbey, Floors Castle and Mellerstain house, all within 5 miles; enjoy stunning views whilst cycling on the quiet Border roads or go fishing on one of the greatest salmon rivers in Britain. After enjoying a great day out in the Borders, return to peaceful Burnbrae 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 wood peckers, sparrow hawk, buzzards, house and tree sparrows, heron, tits, robins and finches. You may be lucky and see the deer or badgers in our fields or otters in the Eden Water within 500m from the cottages.
