The cottage also has complimentary wifi and smart Tv, should you require to remain in touch. We have a beautiful bespoke solid wood kitchen, with all amenities to cook a formal dinning experience or just simply create a lazy Sunday breakfast. We hope that we have provided all that could be required but are always open to further suggestions. Our bedroom is upstairs and accessed by a stunning restored staircase with coir treads and rope banisters ( although stunning may not be suitable for young children or guests with disabilities) The bedroom itself is in a boutique style with crisp white linen and treetop views of the hills beyond. The bathroom is right next to the bedroom and has a stunning suite with integrated wall taps, bath with over shower and is fully tiled. Our home has been created for a romantic break for a couple in the Scottish Borders, it lies within 200yrds of the town centre but due to the courtyard and hills behind, it could be considered as much more rural. The cottage has easy reach to fine dinning in the town and cosy pubs or if you prefer more active pursuits then it sits right at the foot of the Eildon hills at the end/start of the famous 64 mile abbey way. We have access to fishing, world class mountain biking within 10 miles and not to mention fabulous golfing. This cottage gives the rural traditional feel of Scotland but with plenty of county pursuits on your doorstep. Melrose retains classic abbey town architecture, with small boutique shopping, award winning floral displays and just a fabulous tourist vibe. We have the world famous Rugby Sevens in April, an international book festival (email: hidden)racts authors from around the world. Melrose has something for everyone, weather you desire culture, activities, history or just a pleasant peaceful romantic break from the world.
