The Stable Yard Cottage in Greenlaw is a sympathetically refurbished and furnished Scottish Borders holiday cottage with a pleasing mix of contemporary and period furniture that gives it warm and homely feel. It is very spacious with all the bedrooms and two bathrooms situated upstairs leaving the kitchen, living/dining room and a utility room (with a toilet) downstairs.
All rooms (except the laundry room) have open southerly country views giving the cottage its sunny and light feel to it. This cottage is children and pet friendly and provides and excellent opportunity for the families get-together.
The kitchen is well equipped with an AGA that does not just bake to perfection but excused the warmth and cosiness into the atmosphere that inevitably seeps in to the living room. Just of the kitchen there is a little utility room with a washing machine, dryer, hanging rack, toilet and a period laundry sink.
The living room, here, a roaring wood burning stove is in the centre of this atmospheric room. One side of the room (closer to the kitchen) has a dining table and on the other end there are three comfortable sofas. The TV in the corner is Smart TV, with Freeview HD and Built-In Wifi.
A good selection of board games and toys can be found in one of the cupboards and will definitely occupy the younger as well as the older members of the family for longer periods of time.
All the bedrooms and bathrooms are situated upstairs and yet again are all south facing creating a lovely warm and sunny feel in each room. A couple of bedrooms have comfortable double beds with built in cupboards and the third one is a twin room with matching antique metal beds and a superbly up-cycled cupboard.
Stable Yard Cottage has its own private garden and a private car parking space. It has charming country views south across Blackadder River to Greenlaw Mill Farm and Catmoss Hill forming one of three sides of an open courtyard, together with a barn and the estate wall of Castletoun House.
