Imagine walking directly from this dog friendly holiday cottage in the beautiful south of Scotland countryside, out across the adjacent fields. Great walks are right on your doorstep – with or without your dog. We’ll even help you with routes.

Begrum cottage, a dog friendly, self catering, holiday cottage is perfect for two guests but can sleep up to four – great for singles, couples, families or friends. There is a three-seater sofa bed in the homely living room, and the twin beds in the bedroom can be set up as a king-sized bed with prior notice. There is a dishwasher, microwave, fridge/ freezer, hob and an oven with a grill in the well-equipped kitchen.

In addition to central heating from our Biomass boiler, a nice touch is a wood-burning stove in the living room (homegrown, dried logs provided). Directly off the living room is your private south-facing conservatory where you can dine, or simply take in the far-reaching views to the Cheviot hills beyond. Or sit and watch the wonderful birds on our feeders, or the heron flying past.
