Self-catering Cottages for 2 in Berwick-Upon-Tweed & the Scottish Borders

Welcome to Border Holiday Homes, the specialists in self-catering holiday cottages for two people or an individual guest in the beautiful and historic Northumberland and Scottish Borders. Pets are welcome at three of our properties and our two apartments may be suitable for the less mobile. All are suitable for a romantic and stress free holiday.

Border Holiday Homes offers four fabulous cottages for a couple (or a single guest) to stay in Berwick-upon-Tweed or the Scottish Borders. Once Britain’s most violent area, the Scottish Borders, has fabulous scenery, wonderful history, superb places to eat and drink  and, with Border Holiday Homes, superb places to stay. Walking, cycling and site seeing are ideal ways to see the area. Each holiday home has a four star grading from “Visit Scotland” or “Visit England.” Mill Wharf and Old Templars Cottage have both been awarded the GOLD award by Visit England again this year.

All our homes are fully equipped, have central heating, double glazing and have free WiFi. Each has an individual character and style but is perfect for for two people. We give that bit of extra attention to every guest that guarantees a very special holiday.

Arrive by train and we offer compliementary collection at Berwick-upon-Tweed station. There are frequent trains to/from London, Birmingham and the south West as well as Edinburgh, Glasgow and the north. Guests visiting Benfield Cottage may like to arrive on the new Borders Rail Link at Tweedbank or Galashiels stations.We’ll also arrange car hire for you from a very competitive local firm that also offers great service.

For guests who have a busy lifestyle we offer the option of short breaks of differing lengths. Start dates are usually Friday or Monday but, if these aren’t right for you, give us a call. We’ll do our best to match your requirements.
