Thairn - Scottish Borders Self Catering with a Little Extra

Our third cottage, Thairn, has a wee touch here and there to make your Scottish Borders break even more relaxing. Whilst all on one level, and four-star, just like our other two cottages, Thairn benefits from a slightly bigger bedroom with an extra-long, king size bed – great for taller guests.

A guest bed can be added here or in the spacious lounge to sleep 3 in total, and conveniently stored away in a cupboard during the day. In the bathroom, there's a separate walk-in shower as well as a bath, and the kitchen has a built in oven/grill as well as a separate microwave oven.

Highly accessible, Thairn is adjacent to our large, level car park and approached on a flagstone path - good for the ambulant disabled who use a wheelchair outdoors. Directly off the south-facing living room is your own private conservatory, perfect for dining whilst watching the big Borders skies in peace and quiet.
