Holiday Rental House
Barns Tower is a 15th century mini-castle. The perfect romantic getaway, nestled in the Upper Tweed Valley, near the River Tweed, and 4 miles from the bustling market town of Peebles. Roaring log fires, flag stone floors, an ancient iron 'yett' gate, are complimented by a well equipped kitchen, wifi and a luxurious superking sized bed. Stunning walks along the Tweed, or up into the surrounding hills. The famous 'John Buchan Way' goes past the Tower, and the walk to Peebles is a charming 40 minute meander along the banks of the river. World class biking at nearby Glentress, great Museums in Peebles, fabulous gardens at Dawyck, and award-winning chocolates from Ruth Hinks, are just some of the great things to explore in the area....Barns Tower is a 15th century mini-castle.

Barns Tower sits in gentle beauty of the Tweed Valley. I loved the way the living quarters are elevated to the first and second floor, and all the carefully thought out details such as the cosy box bed and generous 'lug' chairs by the fire....More
