About this listing

Built on the banks of a lake, Tiny Home Borders is a romantic countryside escape from life’s many stresses where inside, you will find a Nordic haven. On the outside deck you can enjoy peerless views of the Border Hills and plentiful wildlife all while soaking in a wood-fired Scandinavian hot tub. Out on the lake, you can try out wild swimming and perhaps even paddleboard with your partner. Beyond the property, there are plenty of restaurants, castles, and shops to explore in the legendary Scottish Borders.

Surrounded by soothing Nordic-inspired decor, it is easy to unwind in Tiny Home Borders. Every detail of this remodeled bale trailer is well planned and is designed for your relaxation. Climb up a ladder to find your king-sized bed, where you can sink into the provided bedding and blankets.

Enjoy the log-burner while cuddling on the indoor sofa. During your stay at Tiny Home Borders, you can enjoy unlimited wood, kindling, fire lighters, and matches. From the sofa, you can see right out onto the decking and the lake beyond.

When you stay at this cottage, you may find that cooking is a pleasure instead of a chore. Because the owners also operate Rule Water Venison, you can dine on fresh lamb, beef, or venison grown right on the farm. The kitchen is stocked with coffee, tea, small milk, butter, bread, and cooking oil. If requested prior to your arrival, it can be waiting in the refrigerator for you. A kitchen with an oven and range makes it possible to prepare meals inside, or you could walk on the wild side by cooking outside.

This cottage’s focal point is the outdoor deck. There is plenty of seating as well as a dining table for al fresco dining. Try using the outdoor Swedish cooker affectionately called “Greta” which can be used as a barbecue grill or a pizza oven. Watch wildlife and enjoy spending quality time with your partner while soaking in the wood-fired hot tub. To make your vacation unforgettable, you can request extras like flowers, champagne, chocolates, or even a birthday cake. If you request a breakfast basket, you could even surprise your love with home-cooked breakfast in bed.

Tiny Home Borders is completely secluded – the only company you will have are wildlife and a herd of red deer pastured on the same hill. To help you reconnect with nature, there is no Wi-Fi or television. However, there is good cell service and you will have access to solar-powered 240-volt sockets. Private on-site parking is available 100 meters away from the cottage. If you have a lot of luggage, a trolley can be provided to help transfer it from your vehicle to Tiny Home Borders. Because luxury towels, robes, and slippers are all included with your stay, you can travel a little lighter. Bedding and yoga mats are ready for your arrival, so you can leave yours at home.

When you are ready to venture beyond the property, there is plenty to eat and plenty to do. For a romantic picnic with breathtaking views, the historic Fatlips Castle is only 6 miles away. Take a turn around picturesque gardens and greenhouses at Floors Castle, the largest inhabited castle in Scotland. For the full Scottish experience, you may be able to try salmon fishing, pheasant shooting, or even catch a concert while you are there.

Beyond castles, Famously Hawick is a destination in itself and is only 5 miles away from Tiny Home Borders. Discover why Hawick is known as the “Home of Tweed” while exploring the cashmere, whisky, and other luxury items on offer. Tour the Borders Distillery for a taste of gin, vodka, and, of course, whisky. For delicious food sourced from local ingredients, stop in at The Nightsafe in Hawick. Travel a little further west to arrive at Craik forest, where you can enjoy ancient woodlands and walk tranquil trails. The culinary adventures do not have to stop in Hawick – there are plenty of fantastic eats in Jedburgh and Denholm.

Whether you prefer a romantic vacation to spend time together in quiet tranquility or exploring the beautiful Scottish Borders, Tiny Home Borders has something for you. Sit back and enjoy the red deer, birds swooping overhead, and small woodland creatures from the comfort of the uniquely designed hot tub. Indulge in truly unforgettable meals with locally raised meat or take a break from cooking to sample scrumptious Scottish fare. However you unwind, Tiny Home Borders is a way to disconnect from the hustle and bustle to reconnect with nature.
