We first stayed here a few years ago and decided to return as we loved it so much. It's such a lovely stylish cottage and we like the privacy of the enclosed garden. As it was summer we didn't need to use the log burning...More

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 nearest station is Berwick-upon-Tweed which is serviced by both the East Coast Mainline and Cross Country trains from the west of the country. The cottages are a 20 minute drive or taxi ride from Berwick-upon-Tweed and cars can easily be rented in Berwick. Edinburgh and Edinburgh airport are also an easy drive from Duns, taking approximately 1hr.
Getting around
We recommend a car to get around. If you are a keen cyclist there are some great cycle routes in the Scottish Borders and some that pass directly beside the cottage. There is a shed where bikes can be left.
