Our pet friendly holiday cottages in Melrose in the heart of the beautiful Scottish Borders are a dog walker’s paradise. Set amidst beautiful rolling farmland, the cottages are surrounded by open countryside with superb walking right on the doorstep. There are lots of local footpaths accessed directly from the cottages including the St Cuthbert’s Way which runs past the cottages and over the Eildon Hills from which there are stunning views across the Tweed valley and down to the English border 40 miles away. The river Tweed is less than a mile away and is a great place to take the dog for a swim on a hot summer’s day. The annual two day Championship Dog show at the local show ground in mid June is a highlight in the canine calendar and the Eildon Holiday Cottages are an ideal base whether you are showing dogs or just going along for a fun day out.
Well behaved dogs are very welcome to stay in our pet friendly holiday cottages in the Scottish Borders and we think they will enjoy their holiday here as much as their human companions (possibly even more!). There is even a dedicated doggie shower (ok it’s a hosepipe!) which is handy after a muddy walk in the surrounding countryside or even just for a cool down on a hot summer’s day.
