Wellfield House is a Georgian House situated on the edge of Duns. A five-minute walk to the town square. Please note that there is limited WFI in the apartment but that there is a good 4G signal. Wellfield sits in its own 8.5-acre plot and is surrounded by trees and has formal gardens and a six-acre field that is currently being set to an arboretum and is in its fifth year of a re-wilding project. It is an exceptionally quiet place. The accommodation is on the ground floor and was originally servants quarters. It has its own entrance, parking area and quiet sitting-out area. The grounds are not suitable for children. It is a quiet and tranquil place. The field has an open access marsh, deep pond and hidden springs.

We are dog owners and welcome small well behaved dogs (maximum of two). The apartment has its own secured fence so dogs can be outside the flat. You will need to bring along your own dog bedding and covers for the furniture. Dogs are not allowed in the bedrooms or to be left unattended at any time. They must be on a lead in the grounds and the field due to livestock and wildlife (hares and deer). A charge of £5 per day per dog applies. Please talk to us about bringing your dog for its holiday before you book. You are welcome to walk anywhere on the grounds except our small private garden and the vegetable garden. We can provide you with homemade bread and baking. We can sometimes offer evening meals. Please contact us should you wish for more information before booking. More

About the neighbourhood
Wedderburn Castle, Duns Castle, Paxton House and Manderstone House (the last great Edwardian House ever built) are all minutes drive from Wellfield. The main rail-line Station is at Berwick-upon-Tweed and is 16 miles from Duns. The wild Northumberland coastline with its long wide and white sand beaches and sand dunes are a great day out summer and winter. The beautiful market towns of Kelso and Coldstream are within a 25-minute drive. As is Abbotsford House home of Sir Walter Scott plus the Sir Walter Scott Heritage Trail. The new Borders Railway (opened 2015 by Her Majesty the Queen) runs from Tweedbank into Waverley Station and is a great and cheap way to travel into the heart of the Scottish Capital. It has free parking.
Getting around
Duns is accessible on foot. Duns Castle grounds are open land to walk around. You can walk along by the lake, up through the pine woods into the beginning of the Lammermuir Hills, or through the Castle wood up to the site of Old Duns Town and on upwards to Duns Law and the compass. Duns law is the site of two prehistoric sites and the campground for the 'Covenanters Army'. To get to the coast and into the countryside, you will need a car or use the local bus service.
