This Easter marks our 8th visit to Thairn Cottage. It is our little oasis of peace and calm. Situated just outside Kelso the cottage is one of three converted from an old barn. The views are of a beautifully kept garden and beyond to fields. We enjoy walking and there are some great circular walks in the area ranging from 2 miles to 15 miles and they are all well signposted. The little town of Kelso about 4 miles away is delightful with small independent shops to a large Sainsburys. The cottage has every amenity including a log stove which we sometimes prefer to use than the central heating :-) Overall a great trip and highly recommended.

Management response:

Great to see you again. We are really please that you enjoyed some of the local walks in the beautiful Borders countryside. Hope to see you again next year. Yvette
