You won't have to worry about disturbing the neighbours with this secluded spot down winding country lanes, where you can truly unwind away from the hustle and bustle of towns and cities. Visit the local village of Ancrum, just 3 miles away, to find a local pub or general stores at Newton St Boswells, 6 miles north. Local attractions include the beautiful 12th-century ruins of Dryburgh Abbey and the regal Abbotsford mansion. For those looking for a more active break, find a golf club within 6 miles from the property or head to the local town of Jedburgh (7.5 miles) for fishing.

At the heart of the house, the well thought out farmhouse kitchen is warmed throughout by a traditional Aga. Large windows flood this room with light, and the room offers a delightful space to enjoy an early morning breakfast or family dinner. A utility room with a washing machine can be found on this floor, as well as a handy boot room with space to dry off mucky coats and boots. The lounge which leads through to a TV/games area also offers a bright space thanks to large original windows, and an abundance of sofas and armchairs circle an open fire and TV. Completing this floor is a handy WC and shower room. Upstairs you'll find four generous bedrooms, all of which offer remarkable views of the surrounding garden and hills. A master bedroom offers a zip-and-link bed, creating the versatile option of double or twin beds. A further double and full-sized twin both offer generous spaces to unwind, whilst a second twin offers one full-sized bed and one narrow bed, perfect for a child. Finally, you'll find a family bathroom with bath, WC and separate shower cubicle.

The property is surrounded by a seemingly endless garden, ideal for kids and pets to have a run around whilst you prepare dinner or catch up with a good book. The bustling River Alewater runs through the bottom of the garden, an exciting spot for older kids to fish for trout.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Golfing guests unite and take your pick of the local courses where you can get competitive or enjoy a gentle day on the green. Jedburgh Golf Club is 10 miles from home, Minto Golf Club is a 5-mile trip and Hawick, an 11-mile journey, leaving you with plenty of choices so make sure you pack your handicap and your clubs or look into hiring.

Slip into the Scottish lifestyle and try your hand at a spot of fishing. Recognised as one of the great Atlantic salmon rivers, the River Tweed is 11 miles from your door and is where many practices, styles and flies used when fly fishing originate from. Explore this glorious winding stretch of water and dip your toe in for a refreshing paddle as you meander its banks and relish in the fresh air.

Make the most of your wonderful location and visit some of the famed Scottish border towns. Hawick is a 10-mile journey and well worth a visit to wander its quirky streets which are dotted with traditional shops, a historic Scotch whisky distillery should you fancy a tipple, and the majestic Horse which tells tales of years gone by and commemorates local victory from 1514. Wilton Lodge Park is home to 107 acres of wonderful walks which wind their way through walled gardens, around rivers and through beautiful tree-lined paths.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Belses Mill. On arrival we got welcomed with a delicoious homemade cake, a salad fresh from the garden and a bottle of wine. The house is spacious and provides all you can ask for. The beds are good and the kitchen with the AGA cosy and warm. Its location with the stream right beside it, is beautiful and makes it aRead more great place to stay for families (including dogs). Hide
