The first thing that strikes you is how beautiful the countryside is around here - yet almost completely undiscovered by visitors. In spite of being hidden away it is easily accessible for exploring all parts of the Scottish Borders and makes an ideal base for visiting all the medieval abbeys, castles and country houses for which this part of Scotland is so famous.
Guy and Philippa are very happy for guests to walk around the farm. They have a fine suckler herd of Aberdeen Angus, a large flock of organic free range Columbian Blacktail hens, as well as Kune Kune pigs (originally from New Zealand) and llamas.
Also on the farm is a fabulous riverside walk which goes for one and a half miles along the Ale Water - just the thing for a stroll in the evening or first thing in the morning before breakfast...
There are two double bedrooms each with bathroom en suite, and an extra twin bedroom with private bathroom, ideal for children.
Guests are welcome to relax in the Drawing Room.
