    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    This three bedroomed cottage is amazingly spacious, can sleep up to 6 persons + cot.
    With 2 bathrooms plus WC, it really is wonderful for couples and families alike.
    The kitchen is a magnet for enjoying relaxed informal meals with its country style table and French doors opening onto the patio for alfresco entertaining.
    Even although Newstead is part of Melrose, with only a field separating them, it retains its own identity and charm with the Eildon Hills viewed from the cottage front door and a walk to the River Tweed basically on your doorstep-------- this is the ideal escape haven!
    2, 3 or 4 nights short breaks available--------but you’ll probably want to stay longer.

This is not my idea of a cottage but a modern house. It is very clean and warm with all that you require for a break. The only problem was the very creaky floor boards all over the house, upstairs, the landing, lounge and kitchen. This was very annoying if someone went to the toilet during the night. Other than... more

We were very impressed from the moment we walked through the door. The cottage was immaculate and well maintained. Everything we needed was on hand and as there was only the two of us staying we had difficulty deciding which bedroom to use. The view from the master bedroom looked out towards the Eildons, whilst the night sky from the...

We were so lucky with our choice of accommodation in the Borders. Swallow Cottage was beautifully appointed and a really comfortable base for our brief visit to the Borders. The helpful owners were full of good advice about what to see and do and we've already booked for a longer stay this year. Hopefully this Swallow will really make our... more
