Ferniehirst Mill Lodge, Jedburgh, Scottish Borders
Ferniehirst Mill Lodge was built in 1980. Its modern design gives all the amenities required for your comfort whilst blending with the existing mill buildings and stables. The Lodge is 2.5 miles south of Jedburgh, in the Scottish Borders situated in a secluded valley beside the Jed Water in its own 25 acres of land. It is a haven for bird life.
The accommodation consists of 8 bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms or shower rooms. All have tea/coffee making facilities. There is central heating throughout and the spacious lounge, which overlooks the Jed Water. Full breakfast is served in the attractive pine dining room. The lodge is adjacent to the A68 and yet far enough from the road to offer peace and tranquility. Personal service and warm hospitality are offered from the owner.
The Scottish Borders, whilst providing a gateway to the rest of Scotland, also offers the visitor a great deal in its own right.
The historic town of Jedburgh, situated midway between Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Edinburgh, offers a variety of attractions. There is an abbey, founded in 1138 by David I, Mary Queen of Scots House, where she stayed in 1566, and Jedburgh Castle Jail Museum, built on the site of the original Jethart Castle. The town is centrally placed for touring the rest of the Borders and visiting the numerous historic houses, castles and abbeys in the area.
The miles of unspoilt open hills are sparsely populated and have changed little over the centuries. They provide a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of modern life. It is beautiful walking countryside whether it be a leisurely stroll along the Roman Road, Dere Street, or walking the 62 1/2 miles of St. Cuthbert's way from Melrose to Lindisfarne.
The golf enthusiast has the choice of 19 golf courses in the Scottish Borders area. The angler is well catered for as well with salmon fishing on the river tweed, and sea and brown trout fishing on its tributaries.
Horse riding for experienced, adult riders is available from my own stables. The Cheviot Hills cover more than 400 sq. miles of Scotland's borderland with England and provide some of the finest riding country in Britain. The scenery is breathtaking, and access in parts of this sparsely populated area is only possible on foot or horseback. Rich in history of the Romans and the region's turbulent past, your imagination abounds as you ride along the grassy tracks of Dere Street (the Roman road) tracing the steps of those ancient conquerors - followed later in history by the border Reivers, whose cattle and sheep stealing exploits in the borderlands remain infamous.
My Horses are well mannered but forward going, offering the capable adult rider a fun ride. They range in height from 14 hh to 16.2 hh.. Because the horses are well schooled and keen they are not suitable for riders with only pony trekking experience to hack out on. Private lessons are available for riders who would like to improve their riding to enable them to hack out.
