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.

Thank you very much to both Sally and Bill for a wonderful stay in such a charming and homely place. Sally was such an attentive host and It was beautifully clean too. We had such fun walking around the estate and took the opportunity to wind down in The Old Larder, cosy up and play family games on an evening. The estate is wonderful! .We can imagiRead morene how stunning it looks in May/ June when things are in bloom, particularly the rhododendrons- we'd love to return to see these for ourselves. Hide

A delightful apartment in a beautiful setting. The owner and housekeeper couldn't have been more helpful. This part of scotland tends to be overlooked by tourists and shouldn't be.

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.
