The Tackhouse is a wonderfully cosy retreat situated in the village of Greenlaw in the Scottish Borders. With a central but secluded village location, walks from the door and plenty of castles and abbeys to explore, there’s something to keep the whole family happy. And with a cosy wood burning stove in winter and a pretty walled garden in summer, it’s the perfect hideaway all year round.
The open-plan living, dining and kitchen area is relaxed and welcoming with a stunning stone fireplace and wood burning stove at its heart. Cosy down on the sofas and enjoy some time together - be it watching the flatscreen TV (with Freeview and Netflix) or delving into the well-stocked games cupboard. And younger guests will delight in the toys and children’s books.
The modern kitchen is sparkling and houses all you could need with all the mod cons - there’s even a dishwasher, washer/dryer and Dolce Gusto coffee machine. The dining area comfortably seats four and is the perfect spot to plan for your day’s adventures.
Upstairs there are two double/twin ensuite bedrooms. The ‘family’ double is large enough for a cot/crib (please mention at the time of booking if this is needed) and an ensuite bathroom with a bathtub and shower. The second bedroom has an ensuite shower room and can be set up as a twin room if needed. Both rooms are simply styled with crisp white linen and restful colour schemes.
Outside, the quaint walled garden offers the perfect sun trap. With a small lawned area, young cherry tree and pretty terraced seating area, it’s a beautiful spot for a morning cup of tea or glass of wine in the evening.
Located in the village of Greenlaw in the Scottish Borders, you’re perfectly placed for exploring. Choose from heather-filled moorland walks, woodland strolls, or, for the more energetic, a hike up the Eildon Hills. And as you’re in the borders, there’s plenty of castles, abbeys and historic towers to explore. If you fancy heading a little further, then the coastal fortress town of Berwick-upon-Tweed is just half an hour’s drive. With galleries, independent shops, cafes and restaurants, there’s plenty to see - you might even strike it lucky and visit when the street market or one of its many festivals are on.
