Borders holiday cottages

Self-catering accommodation in the Northumberland and Scottish Borders

On both sides of the Scotland/England divide, there are some wonderful Borders holiday cottages providing a range of unforgettable self-catering accommodation for couples, families and groups of friends. A range of fantastic Northumberland holiday lets are available across the northern part of Northumberland and the south-eastern part of the Borders, including traditional stone cottages, attractive lodges and spacious barn conversions. From the coastal town of Berwick-upon-Tweed to Kielder Forest Park, Borders holiday cottages are perfect whether you’re looking to enjoy the Northumberland coast, explore some awe-inspiring countryside, or visit historic sites and cities including Edinburgh to the north. Scottish Borders cottages are ideally situated for exploring the ancient abbeys and magnificent stately homes dotted throughout this spellbinding and tranquil area. 

For guests enjoying a holiday in one of our Borders holiday cottages, this magnificent area offers beautiful landscapes and plenty of opportunities for activities including mountain biking, archery, cycling, surfing, golf, fishing and treetop adventures. There are also miles of breathtaking walks. Across the Scottish Borders, popular landmarks and attractions include Melrose Abbey, St Abb’s Head National Nature Reserve, Dawyck Botanic Gardens, Floors Castle, Abbotsford House and The 7 Stanes Glentress. For guests staying in holiday cottages in the Borders, Northumberland also has plenty to discover, including the glorious Northumberland National Park which dominates the region. Heading over to the coast, the historic Berwick-upon-Tweed, England’s most northerly town, has sandy beaches, serene riverside walks, the Royal Border Bridge and Elizabethan-era walls, as well as a great choice of pubs, cafes and restaurants.
