Interaction with guests
We like to leave people to enjoy their holidays in peace and get away from it all. For that reason we don't tend to bother you during your stay. However we are generally around to answer any queries you might have or offer any assistance needed – or leave a manager in place if we are away. We send an extensive information pack in advance of your stay and have guest information files at the properties. We are always at the end of a phone line or an email if you have any more specific requests as well.

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.

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.
