Eildon Holiday Cottages – Self Catering Holiday Cottages in Melrose

The award-winning Eildon Holiday Cottages are a converted eighteenth century farm steading forming six accessible self-catering cottages all with free super-fast wireless internet.

The cottages are situated in a beautiful location just outside Melrose whose lovely high street is less than half a mile away with lots of interesting independent shops, cafes and restaurants. There are magnificent views over the Tweed Valley and surrounding countryside.

The cottages are bright, warm, comfortable, very well equipped and the adaptations we have made for disabled and less able visitors are subtle and unobtrusive.

Abbotsford, the home of the famous novelist, Sir Walter Scott, lies within four miles and in the area there is much of interest for naturalists, historians, gardeners, architectural enthusiasts and sportsmen and women.

The wonderful Scottish Borders countryside is unspoilt and relatively unknown. It is a land of great historical interest and breathtaking beauty. Edinburgh is an easy drive or train ride to the north and the marvellous east coastline, with Holy Island and the great castles of Northumberland, is only an hour away. There is lots to see and do with a constant schedule of events.

We have provided a setting for all members of the family to holiday together. Full week (or more!) stays, short breaks and weekend breaks are all available, and all our cottages are dog-friendly too. We have a total of 28 beds in six cottages and welcome groups of all kinds from golf parties, fishing parties, wedding parties, walking and cycling groups and many others.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Scottish Borders.
