Holiday Rental House
Garden Cottage is a unique and charming secluded cottage, situated on the edge of a magnificent and truly impressive walled garden on the private Yair Estate, in the heart of the Scottish Borders on the bank of the river Tweed. The cottage comprises of two large bedrooms (which can be configured as either 1 twin room and 1 double room or 2 double rooms), a cosy sitting room with log burner, large kitchen diner and bathroom (shower over bath). Both bedrooms are upstairs using a fairly steep staircase, which may make access difficult for some. It may not be particularly suitable for the elderly or those with mobility difficulties. The cottage boasts wonderful views of the walled garden and both the cottage and gardens are south facing. There are no other cottages in the immediate vicinity...Garden Cottage is a unique and charming secluded cottage, situated on the edge of a magnificent and truly impressive walled garden on the private Yair Estate, in the heart of the Scottish Borders on the bank of the river Tweed.

The cottage boasts wonderful views of the walled garden and both the cottage and gardens are south facing. There are no other cottages in the immediate vicinity making it ideal for those wishing to relax in peaceful and beautiful surroundings. Rental is fully inclusive of linen, towels, logs etc and the cottage comes fully equipped with all white goods (dishwasher tablets and washing powder provided), TV, DVD player, telephone (landline calls only please) and wifi. Responsible pets are allowed (at no extra cost) but are asked to remain downstairs and must NOT be allowed into the bedrooms. Being located on the Southern Upland Walk and Cycle route, a 5 minute stroll from the river, a short drive of numerous golf courses and boasting a tennis court (shared with other cottages), Braefoot Cottage is perhaps ideally suited to the outdoor enthusiast. Mountain biking has gained in popularity in recent years and there are now many published routes surrounding The Yair. The well known Glentress mountain biking centre can be reached easily by car (20 mins drive) or by bike (Southern Upland Way) A permit for the Galashiels Angling Association trout water is offered for use by guests, along with right to fish the private water at Yair for trout (Mid March until the middle of September). Salmon fishing is offered (separately and at additional cost) from August through to the end of November. More
