Garden Cottage is a stylish holiday cottage for two located in the Scottish Borders. It can be found at the West Gate of Wedderburn Castle, just outside the village of Duns. The historic cottage has recently been renovated in a contemporary style and offers the privacy and quiet of the countryside, along with the convenience of being close to a pretty market town.
The comfortable sitting room has a huge stone fireplace with wood-burning stove as its focal point. Entertainment is provided through a large flat-screen television with satellite channels and there is also free Wi-fi.
The dining-kitchen is a bright room with French doors offering views across a spacious private lawn and fully-equipped with a wide variety of culinary essentials. The wooden flooring throughout the ground floor of the cottage provides a warm, atmospheric feel, and all floorboards were cut from a single ancient ash tree that grew beside the castle and fell during a storm.
The bedroom has a king-size bed and a full height window framing views of Wedderburn Castle and across the countryside. The chic limestone bathroom has a 1.9m bath with shower.
Garden Cottage has a spacious private walled garden that allows guests the option of sunbathing, alfresco dining, BBQs and relaxing in the fresh air. It is also ideal for those trying to keep an eye on infants and young toddlers. The cottage has parking at the door.
The entire cottage is yours throughout your stay.
