Tweedswood is a Scottish Borders Country Cottage and just over the border from Northumberland and we are delighted to include this taste of Scotland in the collection.
Tweedswood, named after its surrounding river and woodland, and the nearby salmon fishing beat, is everything you could imagine of a traditional Borders holiday cottage, and more. Off the beaten track, in the small tranquil hamlet of Redpath, around 4 miles from Melrose, you are greeted by its distinctive white painted stone exterior set against a backdrop of rolling green hills. Semi-detached, but very private, the cottage has a large lawned garden - safe for children but also a delightful haven for adults - with views to the hills beyond.
Tweedswood is located in the tranquil village of Redpath, which dates back to the 12th century, in the heart of the Scottish Borders. Tucked amongst the rolling hills between the Border towns of Melrose and Earlston, Redpath has the Rivers Tweed and Leader close by and wonderful walking country all around, including on Melrose’s famous Eildon Hills and in the woods and valleys surrounding the village itself. Border towns Kelso, St Boswells, Melrose and Lauder are all within a half hour drive, offering a great range of outdoor activities, places to eat and historic houses to visit - with plenty of coffee stops along the way.
Internally, the 2013 renovation has been executed with great care and appreciation for the building’s heritage, preserving original features where possible and all around the building are quirky echoes of different stages of its 200 year history. With a cosy log burner for the chillier months and a host of fine furnishings and tasteful decor, this retreat will appeal to couples or families alike.
