Pumpkin Cottage is an excellent cottage offering very bright and cosy easily-managed accommodation for two people.
It stands detached, in its own ground (garden furniture and barbecue), just 100 yards from the River Tweed (fishing available locally by permit) in lovely hilly Peebles-shire about 40 minutes drive south of Edinburgh.
It is backed by The Cardrona Forest and sits above the quiet secondary road which links the shops and hotels and pubs of the much-loved small town of Peebles (5 miles north of the cottage) to the large village of Innerleithen (3 miles south) - and has historic Traquair House an enjoyable one mile walk away, and all the glorious surrounding Border Countryside just waiting to be explored. Here you are close to Glentress, one of the premier mountain biking centres in the country with miles of dedicated forest trails of all levels of difficulty. Mountain bikes can be hired at The Hub there.
Heating by multi-fuel stove and electricity, bedlinen and towels are all included. We regret no pets. No smoking is allowed in the cottage.
