Idyllic thatched holiday cottage in the Scottish Borders

Rowantree Cottage

About Us

It has always been our dream to own and run a holiday cottage in the village.  We hold true family values and strive to provide an exceptional experience for everyone who stays in Rowantree.  


I (Audrey) grew up and spent all of my childhood in the village of Yetholm and have a number of family members still residing in both Town and Kirk Yetholm.   We try to visit  ourselves as often as we can as we adore the peace and tranquility of the village and the true 'community spirit' so often lost these days.


We have put a great deal of love and energy into the decor and design of the cottage and we hope that this passion comes across as we simply love spending time here.  We have deliberately furnished the cottage with an eclectic mix of new and antique furniture and nik naks, all sympathetic to Rowantree's age and character.   Everything we put into the cottage has had a great deal of thought, from the Scottish Fine Soap toiletries provided for your use, to the Scottish preserves included in the 'welcome basket' and our subscription to Country Living magazine.


We hope you will choose to stay in Rowantree Cottage and know that you won't be disappointed if you do.
