494/300/49416 St Mary' House in Edinburgh and the Borders

In castle grounds of woodland and lake &ndash; a fittingly historic Borders setting . . ._<strong>Superbly set in the 1,200-acre Estate surrounding magnificent Duns Castle, and just half an hour&rsquo;s drive from sandy beaches, these properties are perfectly positioned to make the most of a holiday in Scotland&rsquo;s Border country. Sympathetically renovated to provide warm and comfortable accommodation, they enjoy access to the extensive grounds, which include glorious woodland, hill vistas, a nature reserve and a splendid lake. At the hub of the Estate, Duns Castle is the owner&rsquo;s home; a fine Gothic Revival building where visitors can enjoy dinner in the castle dining-room by arrangement. Peacefully set on the edge of the historic Berwickshire town of Duns (convenient for sports facilities, good shops, restaurants and bars less than a mile away), the Estate offers the seclusion of wonderful woodland and lakeside walks and opportunities to observe abundant wildlife.<br /></strong>Built around a pele tower given in the 14th century by King Robert the Bruce to the Earl of Moray, the castle has been the seat of the Hay family since 1696. Down the generations the family has considerably enlarged and embellished the building into its present form.<br />The sea is about 16 miles away at the ancient fortified town and fishing port of Berwick-upon-Tweed. The Tweed is one of Scotland&rsquo;s premier salmon rivers and, during the netting season (mid-February to mid-September), visitors can find vantage points from which to watch the fishermen drop and haul their large nets. The shore at Berwick is predominantly rocky but north of the pier is a sandy beach sheltered from the strong tidal currents by an offshore reef. Inshore, the stretch between reef and beach is ideal for bathing.<br />An hour&rsquo;s drive to the north-east of Duns Castle lies Edinburgh with its fine shops, magnificent architecture, fascinating museums and many good restaurants and bars. The ancient abbey towns of Kelso, Melrose and Jedburgh are within easy driving distance. There are several well-known east coast golf courses in the vicinity &ndash; the nearest at Duns itself, which has a 18-hole course as well as tennis, a swimming-pool and a sports centre._<ul><li><em>Winter heating supplements apply (see individual properties for details) </em></li><li><em>Parking</em></li><li><em>TV</em></li><li><em>Video</em></li><li><em>M/wave</em></li><li><em>Cots and h/chairs by arr</em></li><li><em>Walking access to most of the 1,200-acre Estate with lake and nature reserve</em></li><li><em>Natural spring water supply</em></li><li><em>Dinner in castle dining-room, &pound;40pp (by arr)</em></li><li><em>Duvets with linen</em></li><li><em>Towels &pound;3 pp pw</em></em></li></ul>_Adjacent to The Coach House, this exceptionally attractive, stone-built Georgian house faces south, has diamond-leaded windows and is set in a lovely established garden above Duns Castle Lake.
