Brae Cottage Bed and Breakfast

Blacklee Brae - TD9 9TD Bonchester Bridge - Scottish Borders - United Kingdom

Here at Brae Cottage we offer a warm welcome and comfortable accommodation with the emphasis on peace and relaxation. We are on the outskirts of a small village, 8 miles from Hawick or Jedburgh and only 12 miles from the Border with England.

We offer wonderful rooms surrounded by nature in a Norwegian designed timber framed and timber clad house with a Scottish twist. The builder’s remit was to keep the carbon footprint as low as possible. We are passionate about food, its preparation and its service we source as much we can locally. We think that food is there to be enjoyed. A good meal feeds the mind as well as the body. We have our own (very) free range chickens which provide us with the eggs you eat at breakfast. Our bacon and sausages are from our own free range and organic pigs. Our milk and butter come from Grahams a local dairy.Our Smoked Salmon is Scottish as is the Black pudding. The Haddock in the Kedgeree has come from Scottish waters. Our bread is home made.

Visitors to Scotland are often here for the wildlife. According to Visit Scotland wildlife watching is one of the top ten activities that visitors take part in. For the all weather enthusiasts Bonchester Bridge is surrounded by forestry, moorlands and hills. Ideal for bird watching, red squirrel spotting and nature watching in general. For the less energetic you will be viewing from your breakfast table here at Brae Cottage the various birds that visit the bird table, woodlands, red squirrels at the feeder box and across the nearby hills roe deer are often spotted grazing.
