Woodland Cottage


Suitable for: Romantic getaway, A solo holiday, Infant friendly (under 12 months old), Stargazing, Views

Unplug and unwind at this cosy retreat for two, hidden away in an idyllic country estate. Perched on the Scottish borders, you're perfectly placed for day trips to North Scotland, Cumbria's Hadrian's Wall, and the coast of Solway Firth – all just forty minutes' drive away. Or you could just stay holed up at the cottage and country grounds, steeped in history. Be sure to ask your hosts about the fascinating past of the estate – once a no man's land and a haven to criminals. The host's family owns the estate these days, so you're in safe hands here. Follow the woodland path from the cottage and discover a wood-burning hot tub beneath a canopy of leaves. We hear watching the sunset peek through the trees as the woodland bats begin to fly is magical. Then fire up the barbecue for an evening dining under the stars. During the day, head down to the crystal-clear waters of the River Esk and over the suspension bridge for brisk walks in the estate's grounds. Then head home to get toasty beside the log burner before a long soak in the rolltop bath found in the elegant bedroom upstairs.
