Howlands is a spacious cottage that sleeps four people in two bedrooms. It’s all on the ground floor and is fully wheelchair accessible.
There is a large open-plan kitchen / dining / sitting room with wonderful garden views – a great place for watching the huge array of birds (and squirrells!) visiting the bird-feeders. The master bedroom can be made up with two single beds or a super-king size double bed. The shared bathroom has a large bath tub and over-bath shower. The second bedroom has a single bed plus an optional full size single pull out bed for a fouth person.
The cottage is kept cosy year round by our eco-friendly biomass heating system. Top quality bedding (luxury microfibre, no feathers), bed linen, extra large fluffy bath towels, hand towels and bath matts are provided plus tea towels, oven gloves and an apron in the fully equipt kitchen.
The cottage is surrounded by beautiful open gardens for your enjoyment. There are quiet corners with wooden benches, a viewpoint with a swinging bench, picnic benches for eating outdoors and BBQs (gas and charcoal) for cooking.
The centre of Melrose (Sunday Times 2018 winner of Best Place to Live in Scotland) is around 10-15 minutes walk away (0.5 miles) or 2 minutes in the car.
