Immaculate, detached 3 bedroom cottage offering real luxury. The spacious open plan living area with vaulted ceiling looks out through wooden plantation shutters to the Eildon hills and beyond. The mood lighting throughout the house gives a contemporary feel .Regular trains now run to Edinburgh for city visits .The new Tweedbank station is only a 15 minute walk away ! The cottage will give anyone a warm welcome back after a days walking,fishing, biking, golfing or sight seeing.Situated in tranquil Fishers lane, wonderful walks along the Tweed river and surrounding hills are but minutes away. You might rather just have that coffee on the patio, before a stroll into town for lunch.Listen to live music on a Saturday in Melrose square or watch a game of rugby at the famous Greenyards.

Interaction with guests
On your arrival at orchard Cottage, you will find keys available, heating on ( if required) and a welcome pack with basic essentials. There are folders full of information in the cottage with leaflets from the various activities to be found in and around the Melrose area. There is also a comprehensive list of eating establishments, along with contact details and sample menus. We like to welcome our guests after they have relaxed and settled in to make sure everything is to their liking and to offer advice/ help if required. As our house is quite close by to the cottage, we are always available for guests to pop in and see us anytime during their stay.

Melrose ,'Gem o' Scotland', is a place of beauty & and an ideal short break destination. The town is situated at the foot of the famous Eildon hills which dominate the horizon.
