This ground floor wing of an historical Round house is surrounded by fields with mature woods nearby. Inside the decor is traditional with large kitchen/dining room and even larger sitting room with open fire and french windows.
This is a historic house, this semi-detached single story section is joined to an unusual round house where the owners live. The first bedroom is large and bright with two single beds which can be pushed together, it has an en suite shower room. The second bedroom is smaller with four single beds. There is a separate toilet, and a large family bathroom with bath and toilet. The sitting room and kitchen are traditional in decor and very large, the kitchen table sits 12 comfortably. There is a 3 inch step into the bedroom, toilet and bathroom area which can be accessed by a wheel-chair user with help.
At the front door there is ample parking. The french windows from the sitting room open straight out onto parkland. There is a large pond which is not fenced off, and young children should be supervised at all times. From the house walks through the woodland and along the river are easily accessible, dogs should be kept on a lead at all times.
Interaction with guests
As the owners are both working, they are not always at home during the day, but entry at any time can be arranged. The owners are available by phone at any time, and will normally be at home in the evening and overnight.
Other things to note
This is a quiet rural area, good for walking and as a base for visitors to the Scottish Borders. There is a Pictish Broch (built in the 2nd Century AD) and an iron age fort within walking distance, and swimming in the river that flows past the house is possible in the right weather conditions.
Please note that there is little mobile phone signal available and the wifi is slow at 6 Mb.
It is a 20 - 30 minute drive to shops, pubs or restaurants, depending on which direction you go, so it is not advised that you stay here if you are looking for a good night-life, other than viewing the stars!
Pets are welcome, and should be kept on a lead when out walking. In the house please do not allow pets on furniture or in the bedrooms.
Smoking is allowed outside the house, there are seats available outside the sitting room. Please do not leave litter or cigarette ends on the ground outside.
Please do not move or use bedding or mattresses out of the bedrooms.

I am married, mother of three grown up children, and a doctor working in our local hospital. When on holiday I like exploring and understanding the history of the place we are visiting. We are also interested in the local fresh food and cuisine, and like to stay somewhere comfortable.
