Small and perfectly formed – our tiny bijoux for two
Whether indulging in a stolen weekend away from city life with a solo escape or searching for the perfect romantic holiday destination for you and your beau, take the opportunity to create your own adventures and live it large in one of our small but perfectly formed cottages.
From a quirky former salmon netting station with a glass-fronted sitting room offering riverside views to a seductive watermill flaunting interiors sure to set your heart aflutter, we’re embracing the tiny house trend with gusto.
Once an overnight jail and now a soul-soothing bolthole on the edge of the Cheviot Hills. With a tweed fabric called ‘Cheviot’, cabinets painted in Farrow & Ball’s ‘Pigeon’ and a cast iron bed made with honeymooners in mind, everything has been restored to add to the overall feeling of comfort.
Pigeon Loft | Kirk Yetholm, Scottish Borders | Sleeps 2
A true little bolthole with oodles of country charm in the very sweet interior. With beautiful nature reserves and stunning landscapes on the doorstep, pull on wellies and head out to pick fresh herbs and veg from the garden for supper, say hello to the farm animals and live a little of the good life.
Middle Cottage | Gunnerton, Northumberland | Sleeps 2 with 1 dog welcome
Somewhat minimalist and oh-so cosy, the vibe at this converted 17th Century watermill is enduringly stylish with an impressive list of design names mixed with salvaged finds and industrial accents. Roll out of bed and into the roll-top bath for a sumptuous soak or spot of evening star gazing. A firm favourite.
Juniper Mill | Lauder, Scottish Borders | Sleeps 2 with 1 dog welcome or 2 dogs on request
The Potting Shed
Eco-friendly and encircled by a wildflower meadow with a touch of fairytale charm. There’s a delicious ‘home produce' welcome pack including freshly baked bread and free-range eggs from the owner’s chickens. Evenings will be spent listening to birdsong and the trickle of the river nearby. Bliss.
The Potting Shed | Earlston, Scottish Borders | Sleeps 2 with 2 small/1 large dog welcome
The Hay Loft
An endearing little hayloft wrapped up in all kinds of loveliness and countryside idylls. The interior combines welcoming original beams, rustic touches and a roaring log burner. Make use of the art studio and enjoy perfect picnic lunches with ingredients picked from the owners’ fruit and veg patch.
The Hay Loft | Gunnerton, Northumberland | Sleeps 2
If you love both country and city, you’ll adore this cottage set in the heart of a picture-perfect village, with the wonderful Pentland Hills accessible on foot and Edinburgh’s city lights just a stone’s throw away. Your comfort is ensured with a dinky kitchen, original fireplace, mod-cons and a cosy eyrie of a bedroom.
Braemar | West Linton, Scottish Borders | Sleeps 2
