Grooms cottage is very small and is almost like stepping back in time. It had everything you could need and was very clean and tidy. It could do with an update but it was more than adequate for our short stay. The bed was comfortable...More

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is set in the grounds of Wedderburn Castle in beautiful parkland. There are nice walks around the castle grounds and in the local area. It is also handy for local cycle routes.
Getting around
We recommend having a car to make the most of your stay. If you are taking a train to Berwick-upon-Tweed station it is possible to hire a car and have it delivered to the station. It is possible to walk to the village of Duns but please note that the route is along country roads without pavements or streetlights. We would advise particular care at night.
