Escape: Windlestraw

Gorgeous interiors, assured cooking and an enviable location elevate an overnight stay into a truly memorable experience

When we arrive, we’re ushered through the welcoming entrance, through the bar and sitting area and into the sunroom, which has sweeping views across the Tweed valley. As we take in the picturesque setting, we are offered a glass of locally pressed apple juice and a welcome cup of tea. The concept of local meets the outside world is a theme that runs through the bed and breakfast. The sunroom has an impressive cabinet from China with a statue of Buddha from Sri Lanka perched on top, and games that the owners, John and Sylvia Matthews, have collected on their travels, to be enjoyed in a setting that is unmistakably Scottish.
