Property code: CA035

Rural country spot just 20 miles from the English/Scottish border, offering the ideal location for outdoor families to get together with room for the dogs to come along as well.

You won't have to worry about disturbing the neighbours with this secluded spot down winding country lanes, where you can truly unwind away from the hustle and bustle of towns and cities. Visit the local village of Ancrum, just 3 miles away, to find a local pub or general stores at Newton St Boswells, 6 miles north. Local attractions include the beautiful 12th-century ruins of Dryburgh Abbey and the regal Abbotsford mansion. For those looking for a more active break, find a golf club within 6 miles from the property or head to the local town of Jedburgh (7.5 miles) for fishing.

At the heart of the house, the well thought out farmhouse kitchen is warmed throughout by a traditional Aga. Large windows flood this room with light, and the room offers a delightful space to enjoy an early morning breakfast or family dinner. A utility room with a washing machine can be found on this floor, as well as a handy boot room with space to dry off mucky coats and boots. The lounge which leads through to a TV/games area also offers a bright space thanks to large original windows, and an abundance of sofas and armchairs circle an open fire and TV. Completing this floor is a handy WC and shower room. Upstairs you'll find four generous bedrooms, all of which offer remarkable views of the surrounding garden and hills. A master bedroom offers a zip-and-link bed, creating the versatile option of double or twin beds. A further double and full-sized twin both offer generous spaces to unwind, whilst a second twin offers one full-sized bed and one narrow bed, perfect for a child. Finally, you'll find a family bathroom with bath, WC and separate shower cubicle.

The property is surrounded by a seemingly endless garden, ideal for kids and pets to have a run around whilst you prepare dinner or catch up with a good book. The bustling River Alewater runs through the bottom of the garden, an exciting spot for older kids to fish for trout.

Reviewed by Mr Oswald, July 2019

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Belses Mill. On arrival we got welcomed with a delicoious homemade cake, a salad fresh from the garden and a bottle of wine. The house is spacious and provides all you can ask for. The beds are good and the kitchen with the AGA cosy and warm. Its location with the stream right beside it, is beautiful and makes it aRead more great place to stay for families (including dogs). Hide
