At Burnbrae Holidays we have three holiday cottages located in the Scottish Borders, peaceful, one-bedroom self-catering cottages. Ideal for couples, friends, or singles. All on one level. Set in an idyllic countryside location. Burnbrae Holidays is located in the Scottish Borders 3 miles from the abbey town of Kelso, perfect for exploring both sides of the Scotland / England border.

Kelso is known for its abbey, cobbled market square, unique independent shops, delicious restaurants, cafes and pubs. 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 in our peaceful self-catering holiday cottages, Burnbrae Holidays, you can enjoy many local activities including walking or cycling in the beautiful countryside, either from your cottage or a short drive away; 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 Holidays and relax in front of your cozy 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, herons, 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
