Comfortable, very well equipped Cottage in a stunning location on our 1,400 acre hill farm. Enjoy Dark Skies (no light pollution) & watch Red Squirrels on our Trail Camera. A wonderfully secluded position with privacy and beautiful views. Easy car access, large parking area, garden & grounds including 3-acres of woodland and paths. Mammals recorded locally include otters, badgers, bats, foxes, brown hares, deer and red squirrels. There are species of rare butterflies and moths, and a huge range of birds including Osprey, Golden Eagle, Black Grouse, Barn Owls, Dippers, and Peregrine. Parts of both "The Nature of Britain" and "Autumn Watch" were filmed on the farm close to the Holiday Cottage. The area is steeped in History, visit some of the Borders Stately Homes & Gardens, Abbeys, Churches, & Keep Towers.
