The award-winning Eildon Holiday Cottages are a converted eighteenth century farm steading forming six accessible self-catering cottages.
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 independant 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 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 hope you will agree with the judges and greatly enjoy your holiday with us.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Scottish Borders.
Six beautiful holiday cottages ranging in size from 1 to 3 bedrooms, perfect for anyone seeking a memorable holiday in the Scottish Borders. All located at Dingleton Mains Farm steading, the cottages are ideal for individuals, couples, families and larger gatherings as we can sleep up to 28 guests in total. The adaptations we have made for disabled and less able visitors are subtle but make our holiday accommodation truly accessible for everyone.
Melrose is well known for its lovely, vibrant high street full of interesting independant shops and eateries. The local area is full of history and interest for young and old alike. Relaxation, sport, scenery, wildlife and much much more is right on your door step.
This has been a wonderful base for family and friends in your very well equiped cottages whilst celebrating our daughter’s 21st birthday marquee party on the banks of the river Tweed at Middle Pavillion. We have had an excellent long weekend with lots of happy memories. Enjoyed the views and late evening BBQs outside, we have been very lucky with the weather, thanks for being good hosts!
A very happy family holiday. Supreme location and very friendly people with that little eye for home comforts like Scottish shortbread on arrival. Seen plenty of wildlife – squirrels, deer, woodpeckers, bullfinches and blue tits and many more. Really love Melrose and the Ship Inn we can thoroughly recommend for meals, is disabled friendly for wheelchairs and welcomes dogs inside and outside in the gardens – relieved so many problems for us. Would love to visit you again. Thanks a million!
Our 3 night stay was all too short. Holiday was made by the perfect accommodation. Rob was very helpful and friendly. The views speak for themselves and the birdlife is outstanding. Wife and father-in-law delighted with the early morning visit of a woodpecker. Profiling bed made father-in-law’s stay as comfortable as ours. We will be back but may need to book earlier next time as I am sure word will be getting out!
We had a great time here. We booked all the cottages for an extended family reunion timed to take in the Melrose rugby 7s. The accommodation has been perfect. Thank you for making it all so comfortable for us.
A beautiful steading conversion – a dream location at the foot of the Eildon Hills – great views from the lounge window and a week of really enjoyable walking routes. Thanks for all the home comforts of Howlands cottage
We had a fantastic week in a beautiful country. Many thanks from all of us from Sweden.
We have had a lovely short break and found the cottage warm and comfortable (Hamiltons). Fantastic views all around.
We have enjoyed fantastic views, great accommodation and all in all a really good weekend. The whole family were pleased with the warm welcome we were given on arrival and throughout our stay at Eildon Holiday Cottages – will definately come back in future and recommend to our friends. Many thanks
A lovely holiday in a beautiful setting. Bonny Scotland indeed!
Lovely cottage (Langrig), lovely views. Very peaceful holiday, weather was perfect. Loved watching the birds.
A most enjoyable short holiday in this beautiful area, there is always somewhere new to visit and explore. The cottgae (Hamiltons) has met all of our requirements in terms of warmth, comfort, equipment and of course the lovely view from the cottage. Thank you for your warm and courteous welcome.
All three of us had a wonderful stay in this lovely, well adapted cottage (Langrig). Everything provided that we asked for and beyond. Rob and his wife both made us all welcome. Will definately be back. Thank you for a wonderful break. Shortbread was also a nice touch.
Had a wonderful stay, our third time here and we will definately be back again. Beautiful place and scenery and the cottage (Single Tree Cottage) is lovely. Thanks for a great holiday, see you in March
A huge thank you to you both for a wonderful holiday. This is the second time we have stayed with you and we have not been disappointed. The cottage is well equipped, cosy and homely. Without a doubt you are our favorite holiday destination for the future.
