About Eildon Melrose Holiday Cottages and Log Cabins

Our properties are particularly suited for large groups, families, guests with dogs and couples looking for a romantic getaway. Some of our properties also have outstanding facilities available for wheelchair users or those with reduced mobility.
If you like walking, with or without a dog, you will love the fabulous walks from the doorstep. The 3 peaks of the Eildon hills next to us, are the start of the St Cuthbert's Way, an iconic landmark in the area and a good challenge for keen walkers and adventurers. Melrose is a great central base for exploring the whole region of the Tweed Valley and Scottish Borders. There are beautiful Scottish Landscapes at every turn, fascinating historic sites throughout the area and day trips to Edinburgh on the scenic Borders Railway can be a great option for those wanting to visit the Scottish Capital.
