A Bed and Breakfast in Scottish Borders
Lantonhall West Wing consists of a twin spare room with disabled facilities, a country view, en-suite bathroom with bath, basin, loo and wet room shower (all with handrails).
The private sitting room has a wood-burning fire and TV. Roll-away bed can be put in the sitting room for a child.
The New kitchen has a clothes washer and breakfast table.
Continental breakfast can be provided in the fridge (full English £10 extra)
Set in farm land, there are wooded footpaths to the village half a mile away. This makes it great for dog walking and in the twilight badgers, foxes and roe deer can be seen. Fishing on the Tweed and Teviot and various lochs is available, and many riding events in season.
The lane from the side road is not tarmacked and is a bit bumpy, but means the house is completely secluded in farmland.
Dinner can be found in Jedburgh or in a choice of country restaurants not more than 3 or 4 miles drive.
Harestanes Woodland Centre on the Monteviot Estate is also about 4 miles away. It is on St Cuthberts Way long distance footpath, part of Deer Street Roman Road.
The Scottish Borders is specially blessed with small towns - Kelso, Melrose, Jedburgh, Dryburgh, each with a ruined abbey: also several stately homes open to the public – Mellerstane, Floors Castle, Mertoun House, Sir Walter Scott’s home Abbotsford, Bowhill, and more. The Romans first came to the Borders and left their mark on the Eildon Hills and Pennymuir, and earlier still the ancient Brittons settled in the Cheviots at Wodenlaw.
You will surely enjoy your stay here.

The Private House Stay's Guide
This is a region which is drenched in the blood of countless battles with the English, and its many ruined castles and abbeys bear witness to this. It also has inspired the country's greatest poets and writers such as Robert Burns, John Buchan and Sir Walter Scott. The wildest and most spectacular scenery is to be found in the southern part of the region, but it is along the central valley of the River Tweed, between Peebles in the west and Kelso in the east, where you'll find most of the historic attractions. The hill walking and spa-town atmosphere of Peebles is recommended.
