Scottish Borders holiday cottages

Book a remote self catering farmhouse to stay in and then spend your days strolling around the idyllic River Garden at Monteviot House in Jedburgh and the Harmony Garden in Melrose. Couples looking for a more romantic holiday will enjoy the Borders.

There are over 50 golf courses in the Lowlands, which means it is a great destination for a short break for golfers. Buy a Freedom of the Fairways pass and you will have access to 21 courses in the Scottish Borders, including the world-renowned The Roxburghe in Kelso and Eyemouth on the stunning east coast.

Of course, no visit to the county would be complete without finding out about its troubled history, particularly if you have kids eager to learn. Stay in child friendly accommodation in the Borders and you will be within easy travelling distance of the great Roman landmark of Hadrian's Wall and Floors Castle, where King James II was killed. Outdoor activities available can be enjoyed by everyone, including the popular horse riding at Dryden Riding Centre near Selkirk and farm tours at Jedforest Deer Park, which has unusual animals including white red deer, water buffalo and Connemara ponies.
