Three contemporary cottages on Cliftonhill Farm in a secret corner of the Scottish Borders, just 3 miles from Kelso. Kelso is a bustling market town, with its cobbled square and farmers market, Kelso Abbey, Floors Castle, the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland, lovely shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. The perfect location to explore the Scottish Borders and Northumberland and its magnificent coastline.
Plum Braes Barn includes Cockle Kitty, Garden Bank and Plum Tree with their own private patios and gardens. Enjoy the views from the swing seats, follow the River Eden to the mouth of the Tweed, look out for the Kingfisher and the Barn owls hunting. If you like to be active during your stay, there is a tennis court on the farm, lovely walks beside the River Eden, where you will see our organic sheep grazing and spot otter, kingfisher, swans and deer in the woodland. On the farm we grow organic oats and flowers which are available to buy in our tiny farm shop along with fresh eggs and other produce. Meals can be delivered from a local business. The cottages offer a peaceful and tranquil getaway with wonderful views over the Eden and Tweed valleys towards the Cheviot hills.
During July, August and September we have a spectacular flower field on the farm. With cut your own flowers, activities and a lovely walk around the flowers. The ‘Field of a Million Suns’ is a highlight, with sunflowers and other flowers blooming.
The three cottages are very warm as they are heated by biomass and log burners. All the floors are tiled.
