With an extensive knowledge of the area, social life and local events guests are welcome to ask directions and for suggestions as to places to visit should they wish to enjoy the vast range of cultural and scenic delights of the Scottish Borders. Equally they are welcome to use the facilities of Coille House to relax and recuperate.
The nearest town of Hawick is only a few minutes drive and has many bars & restraints but some of the nicest pubs, some with outstanding dining facilities are a drive away. Taxis are available and the owners are willing, by arrangement to help retrieve cars the following morning, if guests choose to take taxis home. There are many tourist attractions like Sir Walter Scotts house Abbotsford, Jedburgh Abbey, Melrose with its Abbey and quaint High Street & restraunts and within an hours drive of Hadrian's Wall. There is also the 'Ride Oot' season from the end of May through June. See (URL HIDDEN)
There are many regular and frequent bus routes connecting the Border towns and criss crossing the Borders, taxi services are reliable and reasonably priced and from November there will be a direct train link from Edinburgh to Galashiels. From there car hire, buses and car rental will be available.
The hosts have a extremely well trained spaniel who enjoys welcoming visitors but respects those do not appreciate dogs.
The house dates from 1906 and is in the process of being refurbished by the present owners. It is therefore quirky and creaky.
A grandfather clock chimes out the hour on the hour.
