  • Hi , attending an event in Kelso, are there any public transport links or could you suggest a taxi company Thanks Jim

    Hi, the bus stop is opposite The Burrow. The number 81 bus will get you to Kelso. Bus times - 7:25, 8:25, 9:35, 15:05. There is also Hownam Taxi who can be found on yell dot com. Booking doesn't let me share links unfortunately. Hope this helps.

  • Hello - have seen your lovely cottage and the description states that it has free private parking. Is this off road parking just outside the front door ? Thanks.

    Yes that's right, you can park right outside the front door/front window on the large pavement area. You can also park on the road if you prefer. It is free to park throughout the village.

A quiet, cosy bolthole and comfortable base to explore the Scottish Borders and North Northumberland. Nestled away in the beautiful conservation village of Morebattle, The Burrow is well equipped, one bedroom, one bathroom mid terrace home full of history and character. Suitable for two guests, plus one dog. Situated in a peaceful, rural village location, The Burrow benefits from being next-door to the community village shop and garden, as well as a minute's walk to the local butchers and a short stroll to the village pub/restaurant.
Me and my partner James are both English by birth, but our jobs led us to Scotland. We had already visited many parts of Scotland for our own holidays over the years, and once we had made the Borders our permanent home we fell in love with the place and people completely! We knew we wanted to share what we enjoyed, so decided to set up a holiday home just four miles from where we live, to encourage others to visit the area we love so much. We hope you will get to enjoy it as much as we do. Please get in touch if you have any questions. We look forward to welcoming you here soon.
The Burrow is well situated to access and explore the Scottish Borders, North Northumberland and the Northumberland coast. The historic village of Morebattle dates back to at least the Iron Age, and set in remote upland countryside 8 miles north-east of Jedburgh, 6 miles south-east of Kelso and 3½ miles south-west of Town Yetholm. Whilst situated rurally, the village contains a community shop and garden, butchers and restaurant all within a short walking distance of The Burrow. A local petrol station can be found in Town Yetholm and an excellent pub/restaurant in Kirk Yetholm. 10 minutes to Kelso | 15 minutes to Jedburgh | 35 minutes to Galashiels | 50 minutes to Lindisfarne | 1 hour to Alnwick, Bamburgh and the Northumberland Coast | 1 hour 15 minutes to Edinburgh
