About Greenloaning Cottage

Greenloaning Cottage has everything couples or families could want in a comfortable holiday home in the Scottish borders. The semi-detached cottage is on the fringes of Allanton, a tranquil village in a conservation area close to where Blackadder Water and Whiteadder Water meet. The two-bedroom cottage sleeps four people, with guests having direct access to beautiful walks and bike rides from the door. The excellent village pub, the award-winning Allanton Inn, is a short stroll from Greenloaning and, with some of the area's best attractions within easy reach, it's a perfect choice for a relaxing holiday.

Allanton is popular all year round, not only for the scenery but also for the gorgeous landscape and its many fascinating connections to famous Scots. For example, did you know that Sir Walter Scott, one of the nation's most prolific writers and the man responsible for making tartan fashionable, lived in Abbotsford House? Despite the house's scale and grandeur, he took the secrets of his debt to his grave. Or what about Robert the Bruce, whose heart is rumoured to be interred within the ruins of Melrose Abbey. You don't need the drama of the Highlands mountains to experience the "true" Scotland because the Borders has it all. Edin's Hall Broch is a rare southern example of an Iron Age roundhouse unique to Scotland. When the First Scottish War of Independence started, its first significant conflict was in 1314 when Roxburgh Castle was besieged by English soldiers disguised as cows.

Walking, mountain biking, fishing and golf are all typical activities enjoyed by guests of Greenloaning Cottage. St Abbs Harbour is renowned amongst divers for its crystal clear waters, while Foxlake is a top choice for wakeboarding, Segways trails, and other exciting activities. Other local attractions include Alnwick Castle, St Marys Loch, Bamburgh Castle and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, and Floors Castle. Whatever the weather, there's always something fun to do and beautiful to look at.

Greenloaning Cottage is available for bookings all year round. Well-behaved dogs are welcome through prior arrangement and no surcharge. Short breaks are possible outside of peak season, depending on availability.

Location (Scottish Borders)

Accommodation Comprises:

Greenloaning Cottage is a two-storey, semi-detached cottage at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on the edge of a village. It's peaceful without being isolated or remote. The current owners have completely refurbished the cottage into a warm, welcoming holiday home that feels more as if you're staying with friends than renting an unknown cottage.

Downstairs:

  • Central to the spacious living room is the original stone fireplace, which now has an efficient log burning stove that complements the central heating in winter. Windows look out onto the garden, and a door opens onto the gravel terrace. There is a choice of books and games if you don't feel like watching TV or a DVD.
  • All of the appliances, equipment and utensils you'll need for self-catering are in the fitted kitchen, including a tall fridge/freezer. The dining table seats four people.
  • Family bathroom with a shower over the bath, WC and a handbasin.

Upstairs:

  • Huge master bedroom with a kingsize bed, seating area, and proper storage. A picture window overlooks the garden. The room has an ensuite WC and a handbasin.
  • Twin bedroom with two single beds, a bedside table with reading lights, and a chest of drawers.

Outside: The enclosed garden is pleasingly large and completely secure so ideal for dogs. There is a gravel terrace with garden furniture next to the house, an expanse of lawn, and off-street parking. Untethered EV Electric Car Charger, solely for guests use.

Additional Information: All utilities, WiFi, logs, bed linen and bath towels are included. Guests to supply beach and dog towels if they are required. Short breaks are possible outside of peak season. A travel cot (including cot linen if required at no extra charge), highchair, and toddler's toilet seat are all available. The cottage is a no-smoking property.
