Garden Cottage is a unique and charming secluded cottage, situated on the edge of a magnificent and truly impressive walled garden on the private Yair Estate, in the heart of the Scottish Borders on the bank of the river Tweed. Boasting wonderful views of the south facing walled garden, this property is ideal for those looking to relax in peaceful and beautiful surroundings.
The cottage comprises of two large bedrooms (which can be configured as either 1 twin room and 1 double room or 2 double rooms), a cosy sitting room with log burner, large kitchen diner and shower room with a large walk in shower. Both bedrooms are upstairs using a fairly steep staircase, which may make access difficult for some and might not be particularly suitable for the elderly or those with mobility difficulties.
Rental is fully inclusive of linen, towels, logs etc and the cottage comes fully equipped with all white goods (dishwasher tablets and washing powder provided), TV, DVD player, telephone (landline calls only please) and wifi. Responsible pets are allowed but are asked to remain downstairs.
Guests have access to the walled garden, glens and walkways and are free to roam the entire Estate and enjoy the beautiful surroundings, away from the main road. Guests can also fish for Trout (April through to beginning of September).
Being located on the Southern Upland Walk and Cycle route, a 5 minute stroll from the river, a short drive of numerous golf courses and boasting a tennis court (shared with other cottages), Braefoot Cottage is perhaps ideally suited to the outdoor enthusiast. Mountain biking has gained in popularity in recent years and there are now many published routes surrounding The Yair. The well known Glentress mountain biking centre can be reached easily by car (20 mins drive) or by bike (Southern Upland Way)
