Welcome


Birkhill Cottage is a beautiful two-storey cottage that was built around 1800. It is linked to outbuildings but enjoys privacy, including an enclosed garden space with outdoor dining table. Situated in a semi-rural location, it is nestled behind a quaint hamlet at Birkenside in the Scottish Borders. Its nearest towns are Earlston and Lauder. There is easy access to the A68, as well as many local walking and cycling routes. The cottage is part of a ten-acre estate attached to historic Birkhill House. With a rich farming and equine history, the property is now a busy small-holding, whose residents include Huacaya alpacas, Castlemilk Moorit sheep, pygmy & Golden Guernsey goats, a breeding cattery for beautiful domestic Ragdoll cats, a gaggle of small dogs, a plethora of hens and a friendly pair of peacocks.
