Property Description

A fittingly historic Borders setting

Superbly set within the 1,200 acre estate surrounding magnificent Duns Castle, and just 30 minutes’ drive from sandy beaches, these holiday cottages are perfectly positioned to make the most of a holiday in Scotland’s Border country. Providing comfortable accommodation, they both enjoy access to walks in the extensive grounds, which include deciduous woodland, hill vistas, a nature reserve and a splendid lake. At the heart of the Estate, Duns Castle is the owner’s home where generations of the Hay family have lived since 1696. Today it is a splendid Gothic Revival building which has evolved around a pele tower given in the 14th century by King Robert the Bruce to the Earl of Moray. Step back in time with dinner in the grand castle dining room, available by arrangement. The Castle is just under a mile from the quiet market town of Duns which has good local shops, pubs and restaurants along with a swimming pool, sports centre, tennis courts and 18-hole golf course. Enjoy peaceful lake and woodland walks from the doorstep, where the patient observer may spy roe deer, badger or red squirrel, and mute swans and numerous ducks take right of way on the lakeside road. Activities to suit all ages and tastes are nearby, with 7 golf courses within an hour’s drive; sandy beaches at Scemerston and Coldingham; visit ancient Holy Island; historic houses at Manderston, Floors Castle, Paxton House or slightly further afield at Bamburgh or Alnwick; shooting, salmon fishing and trout fishing, permits available locally or by prior arrangement; archery and clay pigeon shooting available by arrangement or simply savour the peace and quiet of this secluded setting. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

Formerly the gardener’s cottage, this delightfully secluded, 19th century stone built holiday cottage is set amidst a profusion of azaleas and mature shrubs just a short walk from the lake.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. An excellant cottage in a country park, ideal for walking and exploring the area. Sept 2012.
  2. Azalea cottage is set in the most beautiful surroundings, so quiet the only noise is the birds. Lovely walks in the grounds of the castle. The perfect place to recharge your batteries. I have so fallen in love with it. We were extremely fortunate to see an Osprey flying over the lake and dive for a fish. May 2012.
  3. This was our third visit and as usual couldn’t fault it. Even the weather was kind to us and gave us two sunny days, which wasn’t bad for the end of October. It’s an ideal location if you like peace & quiet and watching wildlife. Will certainly be returning again next year. Oct 2011.
  4. Secluded, cool in sunny weather, private, great walks round estate. June 2010.
  5. Spacious, very quiet and set back into woods with great lakeside views and woodland walks starting from the doorstep. April 2010.
  6. The setting is stunning and far exceeded our expectations. Oct 2009.
  7. This is an attractively situated cottage which is generally well equipped and furnished. Kitchen equipment - large and small - was particularly good. Aug 2009.
  8. The location and scenery were superb and we enjoyed watching birds and walking through the Nature Reserve. April 2009.
  9. Lovely accommodation just a little tired in places. June 2009.
  10. A great quiet secluded location but only a 15 minute walk from the town. Very comfortable with every thing you could need for an enjoyable holiday. June 2007.
  11. This cottage lived up to our expectations. Set in beautiful surroundings, secluded, but not isolated. There were great walks in the Castle grounds and just a short walk into town, which adequately met our shopping needs. Other Border towns are within easy driving distance. We loved it! Feb 2007.
  12. Wonderful location and cottage very well equipped. April 2007.
