    “We had a great 5 days in the lodge and cottage for my dad's 80th birthday , 4 generations in the house ranging from 9 months to 89 years.”

    Loads of room for all. Very well equipped, very comfortable. Gardens lovely, specially in the morning watching the pheasants, and hares . Scenery fabulous. Lovely walks and plenty of castles and Country parks to see. House keeper very helpful. There was 20 adults and 6 children under 4 in our party we fitted in no problem at all so thankful we managed to get together from all over Britain.

The property

Greenhill Lodge, set in 7000 acres of heather-clad hills, the Cheviots, offers peace, tranquillity and total privacy between the historic towns of Kelso and Jedburgh. An ideal location for outdoor pursuits or celebratory gatherings. Originally built in the Georgian period as a shooting lodge for the Roxburghshire estate. The elegant drawing room and stunning dining room at the front of the house create the perfect ambience for entertaining - ideal for small weddings, family reunions, special celebrations, whilst the rear of the house allows relaxed family living - a fabulous large kitchen with wood burning stove and French doors to the walled garden, a TV room and a games room. The bedrooms are individually themed with stunning décor, luxurious bathrooms, sitting areas and hairdryers. Cots and 'put-up' beds can be added as required. The adjoining cottage, accessed through the games room, has a lovely sitting room with a dining area, a well-equipped kitchen, and two superking bedrooms with en suites which can be arranged as two twin bedded rooms if preferred. The extensive gardens provide excellent views of the Cheviots with plenty of space for activities, games, etc. The walled garden has two patios, fully furnished with loungers, tables and chairs, and a stone-walled barbecue area for 20+. Well-behaved dogs are welcome and there are heated kennels in the courtyard. Please do not allow the dogs in the house. A full catering service is available, from full silver service to simple family meals. Dinner parties, barbecues and picnics can all be delivered with or without staff. Greenhill offers a unique location, easily accessible from north, south, east and west by road, rail or air, and offers a wonderful opportunity to explore the Scottish Borders with its myriad of historic castles and museums, 21 golf courses, beautiful scenery, first-class fishing and racing at Kelso.

About the location

JEDBURGH

Kelso 12 miles; Melrose 13 miles; Peebles 37 miles.

The historic town of Jedburgh is a small, quiet town lying 10 miles inside the Scottish Border, situated halfway between Newcastle upon Tyne and Edinburgh. Set amidst the stunning countryside of the Borders, Jedburgh has much to offer visitors. There are charming shops, pubs and award-winning, family-run restaurants to enjoy nearby, as well as historic attractions such as the fascinating Jedburgh Castle Jail, Mary Queen of Scots House and the imposing abbey, which towers over the town and dates back to 1138. Great fishing can be enjoyed on the Teviot, Tweed and Jed Rivers and there are 21 excellent golf courses to choose from. The Borders also offer some superb walking and cycling over breathtaking hillsides or amongst the enchanting Border Forests, and along St Cuthbert's Way, a 62 mile trail between Melrose and Lindisfarne, which passes Harestanes Countryside Visistor Centre. The towns of Melrose, Kelso and Peebles are just a short drive away and are a joy to explore at leisure.

Note: Bring own linen for travel cot. Note: Though electricity is included in the rent, electric for charging cars is not included in the rental.
