Surrounded by the glorious scenery of the Scottish Borders, this elegant property sits in a wing of the 1850s built Glen house, boasting 5000 acres of estate land and stunning original features.

Lying in its own pretty glen in the Border's Tweed Valley is Glen Estate, encompassing 5000 acres of privately owned moorland, parklands, hills, lochs, enchanting gardens and the Scots Baronial marvel, Glen House. Enjoy a stay in one of its wings, at this classically beautiful property. Explore sweeping landscapes and extensive grounds, fish for trout in the nearby lochs (season permitting) or take in the rich history of Glen House, dating back to the 1850s. Further afield, Innerleithen (4 miles away) offers a range of shops and restaurants and is a popular mountain biking spot, with access to both downhill and cross country trails. There is also a 9-hole golf course for those who'd prefer a gentler afternoon.

The impressive stone façade greets you as you arrive via the property's own entrance. Once inside, you're welcomed by classically stylish décor, original features, and homespun elegance. Antiques from the Glen House collection adorn each room, and original stone flagged floors run throughout the ground floor giving a nod to the building's past. In the kitchen, cook up a treat beneath the vaulted brick ceiling while a loved one keeps you company at the breakfast bar. The open-plan lounge/dining room is a well-lit space brimming with countryside charm, the perfect place to enjoy a meal in the flickering glow of the wood burner. Throw open the French doors in warmer months for a summer breeze as you get lost in a favourite book, or head upstairs for a soak in the clawfoot tub - an en-suite to the cosy twin room on the first floor, while across the landing, the double bedroom boasts a four-poster bed alongside an en-suite shower room. There's also a separate WC on the ground floor.

Whether you're sparking up the BBQ, dining alfresco as night falls or laying out a lunchtime spread in the sunshine, the cobbled courtyard through the French doors is a great spot for the family to gather. If you're feeling more adventurous, pack up a picnic and head out on a walk through the grounds and gardens of the Estate (shared with other visitors). You could even try your hand at trout fishing in one of the on-site lochs (season permitting), or make use of the shared fitness centre at Glen House – both activities are available by arrangement with the Estate.

You can lose yourself in the acres of the Glen Estate grounds themselves. Hills, woodland, moorland and even lochs, as well as romantic gardens and manicured areas, will give you the sensation of strolling around a period drama. Discover the fascinating history of Traquair, once a palace of William I of Scotland and thereafter resided in by many kings and famous figures. The stuck gates — or “Steekit Yetts” — are legendary for keeping out unwanted visitors.

Venture out into the countryside to discover the breath-taking pursuits of the Borders. Walk, ride, cycle, climb, discover the waterways and lochs, try your hand at water sports and fishing — it's all at your feet in the area of Peebleshire. 4 miles away is the small town of Innerleithen, where you can explore the local shops and eateries amid the trails and wildlife of the Borders.

Other attractions close by include Kailzie Gardens, 7 miles away, a beautiful walled garden set around a burn. The town of Peebles, a beautiful little place on the banks of the River Tweed, offers idyllic surroundings for a stroll and a shop, or head to the historic and cultural hub of Edinburgh, 30 miles away on the coast of the Firth of Forth.

Great little location. Huge grounds with lovely walks and wildlife. Unusual cottage with traditional old decoration and furnishings. A few minutes from local places to shop and eat in Innerleithen , and peebles is a further 10 minutes. I'd say a car is necessary to access places though. Lovely, friendly and helpful house keeper.
