Holiday Rental House
Guests have full use of our large lockable shed/bike store. St Margaret's is located in the heart of Peebles, just 35 minutes drive from central Edinburgh. This spacious one bedroom flat has it's own main door and occupies the ground floor of the building. Details like wooden floors and open fire gives a cosy cottage feel. The south facing garden leads onto a quiet corner of the fifteen acre Victoria Park. Great for picnics! The front view from our bay windows overlook the river Tweed to the historic centre of Peebles. St.Margaret's sleeping arrangements: there are three places to sleep in two rooms: - The bedroom has a double bed. It can sleep two adults. - The living room has a large sofa that converts to a double bed. This double sofa bed can't be moved. It can sleep two adults.

A travel cot is available upon request.Bed linen and towels included free of charge. Enclosed garden with large lockable cycle store which you have access to. On and off road parking (free). No smoking please. No WiFi. There is no WiFi available at St.Margaret's. BUT there is free WiFi available a short distance away. Most cafes, hotels and pubs have free Wifi. The two we can recommend (as they are also the most peaceful places) are: - The Tontine Hotel, mid-way along High Street. It has it's own wee cobbled square out front - great views at the rear of the lounge over the Tweed and hills; - The Cross Keys Hotel, Northgate, off the top end of the High Street. This is a WeatherSpoons that is quiet and has a large beer garden. General Peebles information The town of Peebles is renown for it's independent shops, bakers, butchers, delis, restaurants and pubs. The High Street (within a five minute walk) is often voted Scotland's best High Street. The highly regarded Eastgate Theatre is a five minute walk. It is firmly on the Scottish circuit for some surprisingly famous entertainers and shows. Our favourite Peebles restaurant: The Sunflower Our favourite Peebles pub: The Bridge Inn (CAMRA listed) Peebles is a renowned walking area, there is excellent fishing on the tweed and the UK's number one mountain bike centre, Glentress, is a five minute drive away. In fact, the Glentress forest tracks start within Peebles. Innerleithen down hill cycle centre is another five minutes drive. Peebles has a modern swimming pool and sports complex BOTH within 400 yards of St.Margaret's. For the golfers, there are two local golf courses - one within walking distance. Further away: If traveling through Scotland we have a few recommendations that are slightly different and/or off the beaten track. - Loch Ness: go along the less travelled east road (B852 & B862). The town of FOYERS is highly recommended. And a stay at FOYERS BAY LODGES is a must.Locharber: - Fort William: Ben Nevis (highest mountain). A fantastic area. Call in at LINNHE LOCHSIDE HOLIDAYS for all types of accommodation. For more information contact me. More

Stayed for 2 nights and wish I could have stayed a week. All amenities we needed. Tv is a little small but not there to watch tv. Wifi would be a bonus. Very helpful host. Very happy with my stay.
