Three cheers for our key workers

We wanted to take a moment to thank you for your ongoing support and understanding as we navigate through these challenging times.

We’re delighted to be giving back and saying a big thank you by offering each of our wonderful UK-based key workers the chance to win a 3-night or 4-night short break at The Boathouse!



Named by Telegraph Travel as one of their nine most quintessentially British travel experiences, The Boathouse is nestled in an idyllic position at the end of a no-through lane on the banks of the River Tweed with magnificent views over the river to the hills beyond with not a road in sight. Picture cosy bedrooms, a country kitchen, huge open fires and constant entertainment from the ever-changing vista of the river and its inhabitants. This is the perfect place to relax and unwind in good company.

We’re including a scrummy hamper of local produce and our good friends at The Mainstreet Trading Company are gifting the winner hot drinks vouchers plus one of their popular mugs for each guest to take home. Their award-winning bookshop, café, deli and homewares emporium has an inescapable hint of magic in the air and is quite simply a Scottish Borders must-visit.
