A fabulous barn conversion nestled amongst rolling hills at Blackhaugh, a stunning stretch of countryside between Galashiels and Selkirk.
A fabulous barn conversion nestled amongst rolling hills
Blackhaugh has been farmed by the Elliot family for six generations and Dignity takes its name from the farm's famous and much sought-after ram.
The accommodation is light and spacious and beautifully-presented with fabulous views over rolling farmland to the hills beyond. The natural surroundings are reflected in the interior where oak, slate and granite sit alongside warm, earthy colours, cosy Anta tweeds and an interesting collection of original artwork. Each of the bedrooms is individually-designed and all have sumptuous beds with superior quality mattresses and bed linen to guarantee a good night's sleep.
Outside there is an external dining area and barbecue for the warmer months and guests are welcome to explore the farm which extends to some 2,000 acres and includes some fabulous walks. For keen walkers and cyclists St Cuthbert's Way, the Four Abbeys Cycle Route, Innerleithen's famous Red Bull down-hill and cross country trails and the 2,500 acre Glentress forest are all close by.

Fishing on site
The estate has a loch for wild brown trout fishing which also provides an idyllic picnic spot.
Dignity's location offers the best of both worlds; a peaceful rural setting yet within easy reach of extensive amenities at Galashiels (6 miles) and the pretty mill town of Selkirk (8 miles) which offers a good selection of independent shops. There is a pub in the nearby village of Clovenfords (a 5 minute drive) and Windlestraw Lodge in nearby Walkerburn is a local hidden gem that is well worth a visit.
