Reload this mapPlum Tree Cottage, a barn conversion, is a perfect place for a quiet escape to a pretty part of the Scottish Borders. It is on an organic farm surrounded by rolling hills and the River Eden, which meanders for two miles to the mouth of the Tweed. Kelso with its lovely shops, Abbey and Floors Castle is just three miles..
One field away is the River Eden which is a tributary of the River Tweed. The Eden is fenced off with no stock permitted to graze therefore encouraging a great variety of wildlife like kingfishers, owls, families of otters, heron, fieldmice, deer and much more. Along the river is a hectare of wild flower meadow and sunflowers.

Plum Tree Cottage is a cottage for 2 people. The spiral stairs lead to the kingsize bed with french windows and a small balcony. Lie in bed and enjoy the view and the huge starry sky. (We also have ground level cottages).
Downstairs is a bathroom with bath and over bath shower, a well equipped galley kitchen with table and chairs and a small sitting room with another set of french windows leading out to the new patio (completed April 2014) and private, sunny and sheltered wildflower garden with cascading roses, bbq and comfortable garden chairs and beautiful views.
Enjoy the freedom of wandering around Cliftonhill Farm and along the River Eden and enjoy our barn owls, kingfisher, otter and deer. Stroll into Kelso, a wonderful market town described by Sir Walter Scott as 'The most beautiful, if not the most romantic town in Scotland'. It has a glorious setting, nestling in the Cheviots, with the River Tweed sweeping round the backs of pretty Georgian cottages and the unusual octagonal parish church. The 18th century cobbled square and handsome townhouses give Kelso the elegant air of a French market town.
