A cosy slice of history

The garden of Bread Oven Cottage

A characterful 17th century 2 bedroom self catering cottage, part of Category B listed Smailholm Granary.


Within this fully renovated and purpose developed property we are able to offer comfortable, self contained accommodation for up to four guests.  The accommodation includes two unique bedrooms, one with ensuite facilities and one with private facilities.

Bread Oven Cottage is available for short breaks or weekly rental throughout the year.

The cottage features an open plan lounge with wood burning stove, a well equipped kitchen and a dining area along with two bedrooms, one with ensuite shower room and one with private shower room.  Furnished with contemporary furniture and a modern kitchen complementing the ancient fabric and character of the building, Bread Oven Cottage provides an ideal place to relax.


With full wi-fi controlled and zoned central heating, LED lighting and low energy appliances throughout, the cottage is as eco friendly as we can make it whilst retaining its historical character and charm.


The enclosed garden includes a sunny central seating area close to the original well once used to supply the property and its generations of past residents.  We also have parking for up to two guest cars within the garden gates.


Bread Oven Cottage is truly accommodation to enjoy at any time of year!

Smailholm Tower


Smailholm is a small village nestled in the Scottish Borders.  Set midway between the market town of Kelso and ancient Melrose it is ideally placed as a base for many activities.  Close by is Smailholm Tower, often visited in his childhood by Sir Walter Scott.

The Borders are famous for historical abbeys, ancient castles, magnificent country estates, walking, biking, fishing and shooting.  We are also only an hour or so away from Edinburgh and just a little further from Glasgow.
