Eildon Holiday Cottages - The Croft - country cottage 2 mins from Melrose town centre

Family-friendly cottage in Melrose
The Croft is located at Dingleton Mains Farm, two minutes from Melrose's beautiful market square and historic town centre. Our holiday cottage is particularly suited for large groups (we have 5 other holiday cottages on the same site), families (we offer free use of cots and high chairs) and guests with dogs. If you like walking, with or without a dog, you will love the fabulous walks from the doorstep and we have a handy hosepipe available to wash off muddy boots or dogs. The 3 peaks of the Eildon hills, right behind the holiday cottages, are an iconic landmark in the area and a good challenge for keen walkers and adventurers. Our holiday cottages are situated on a 2 acre site with an orchard, woods and open garden areas with picnic tables and BBQs. We are accessed via a private road with no passing traffic so children can play safely and dogs can be walked off the lead.

Melrose has a unique mix of independent shops and a superb eateries. For guests wanting to cook, there's two butchers, two bakers, a greengrocer and a delicatessen all offering fantastic local produce. Or if you prefer a bit more convenience there's also a good Co-op supermarket in Melrose or several large supermarkets in Galashiels, around 5 miles away. For eating out there are several superb restaurants and cafes in Melrose and there's also several takeaway options too that will deliver delicious food to the holiday cottage. We have a list of recommended eateries in our cottage welcome folders to help guests find the best places.

The cottage has three bedrooms - the downstairs bedroom has a single bed and an en-suite shower room. Upstairs, there are two twin bedrooms (each has two single beds) and a separate bathroom with a bath and an over-bath shower. All beds have deep, comfortable mattresses and cosy all seasons duvets and pillows made from luxury micro-fibre soft as down, there's no feather bedding.

Also on the ground floor there is an open plan kitchen / dining / sitting room and a sun porch at the front which is a lovely place to sit and read with a coffee or to watch the birds feeding on the bird feeders hanging in the garden. It's also a handy place for letting dogs and wet boots dry off if needed.

The kitchen is fully equipped and has an oven, electric hob, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator with small freezer compartment. The crockery is high quality Denby. There is a shared laundry facility which has a washing machine, a tumble dryer and a large chest freezer if you need extra space for any other frozen food such as ice creams. This room also serves as an information hub with pin boards and a leaflet rack giving lots of information on the best local attractions.

The cottage is kept cosy at all times by our state of the art eco-friendly biomass heating system which is on 24 hours a day with temperature control in the cottage.
