    A special place to stay set in the delightful Tweed Valley. Both the restaurant and valley were revelations to us - the sense of discovery unbeatable. Remarkable food, including the breakfast, and an all round lovely place.

    I can't give you a price - you need to contact Windlestraw. I can confirm that the room rates we were quoted were from £240 to £280 per night.
