Stayed at the keepers cottage over the weekend for a family party in the area. It was quiet and relaxing. The cottage was also warm with a wood burning stove available if required.

About the neighbourhood
Duns is a thriving market town in the Scottish Borders offering a selection of high-quality local shops – bakery, delicatessen, greengrocer, chemist, coffee and gift shops – and a small supermarket.

The cottages are a 20 minute drive or taxi ride from Berwick-upon-Tweed and cars can easily be rented in Berwick.

Getting around
A car is very much recommended – particularly in the winter months
