About this listing

A stylish country cottage holiday rental in the Scottish Borders with all the modern comforts and bags of character. Set in rural parkland but with the convenience of a town nearby.

The space

A recently-renovated holiday cottage in the romantic Scottish Borders in the magnificent grounds of Wedderburn Castle, close to the pretty village of Duns. Keeper's Cottage is located in the Georgian stable block at the castle and combines traditional details with contemporary style. The cottage has free Wifi.

Features include a spacious farmhouse-style dining-kitchen with a large table for family meals, stone walls, fireplace with decorative range and a fully-equipped modern kitchen.

The sitting room has a stone fireplace with wood-burning stove, large flat-screen television and comfortable sofas for kicking back in front of the fire. There are wooden floorboards and antique floor tiles throughout the ground floor of the cottage, with the floorboards cut from a single ancient ash tree that grew beside the castle and fell in a storm.

The first floor has two bedrooms: one double and another that can be used as a double or twin room. There is also a large, comfortable sofa bed in the sitting room that can be used to accommodate two additional guests. The double bedroom has an oak bed and en-suite bathroom with luxurious 1.8m bath and rain shower, limestone tiling and wooden floors. The second bedroom has a private bathroom with antique roll-top bath for long soaks after country walks in the surrounding area.

Great location and very cute cottage. Was a little hard to find the cottage at check in but we were happy with everything about the place. Very close to the center of town would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Duns

Hi Holland. Thank you for your review. The cottage is located a little over a mile from the town of Duns so has all the peace of the countryside but also has the convenience of a town within a very short distance. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay!

We absolutely loved our stay here over Christmas with our children. The kitchen is well kitted out for festive cooking, the living room is stylish and cosy, and the bedrooms and beds were great. Tucked away in a tranquil location, it would be impossible to leave without feeling very well rested. Thank you so much.
