In a quiet lane just a few hundred yards from the High Street, the newly refurbished 22 Biggiesknowe is a quaint and delightful holiday home. Sleeps 2 adults plus a child. It was built at the beginning of the 20th century, originally as a weaver's cottage and has been completely refurbished in 2014. It has 1 bedroom with a double bed, a lounge with dining table overlooking Eddleston Water (known as 'the Cuddy' locally), a shower room and a lovely shaker style kitchen also overlooking 'the Cuddy'. With wooden flooring throughout and a wealth of traditional features it makes for a stress free and relaxing holiday.
Tucked among the Border hills, on the banks of the River Tweed, is the charming and picturesque little town of Peebles. Despite being only 30 miles from Edinburgh, it is surrounded by some of the most peaceful and beautiful countryside that Scotland has to offer and it has long been a favourite holiday destination.
The area is a mecca for fishermen, walkers and golfers. (You can walk out into the surrounding hills straight from the door.) Lately it has also become a prime centre for mountain bikers, who come to enjoy the dedicated trails in the nearby Glentress Forest.
Peebles has a leisure centre, tennis courts, riding stables at the Hydro, and a lively Arts Centre, as well as many interesting shops and excellent places to eat. Garden lovers will find their passion catered for at the Kailzie and Dawyck Botanic Gardens, both just a few miles away. Those interested in history can visit Neidpath Castle on the outskirts of the town, or Traquair, the oldest continuously inhabited house in Scotland, where the Bear gates will remain closed until a Stuart once more ascends the British throne. The Southern Upland Way also passes through Traquair, so you can join it there and head off either east or west.
Buses run regularly from the town to both Edinburgh and Galashiels One thing is sure, at 22 Biggiesknowe you should never be bored!
