The Old School is a quiet, convenient place to stay in some of the Scottish Borders’ most beautiful countryside. We are artists with a love of gardens and orchards.

Accommodation is on a self-catering basis though I leave fresh breakfast ingredients to cover your first couple of mornings. Whether for an overnight stay or longer-term accommodation, we look forward to welcoming you. Check out discounts for weekly and monthly stays.

Ang tuluyan
Eckford School and the “Domini’s” (or teacher’s) house were built circa 1831 and have been lovingly converted into a single private home which includes quiet, private and fully-equipped self-contained accommodation for visitors. The garden is rather wild but, we think, incredibly beautiful, particularly through Spring, Summer and Autumn. We grow a variety of produce and other soft fruit, (including cherries if the blackbirds don't get them first) as well as apples and pears are there for the picking.

The herb garden provides the proverbial parsley, sage, rosemary in thyme (and some mint)...

The self-contained accommodation includes:
* Private Entrance with patio seating and table onto the gardens and beautiful landscape beyond. You're also welcome to share the whole garden with us.
* Large Bed/Sitting Room with a Super King-sized or Twin beds. The room has a daybed sofa (standard single-sized bed) so the room can accommodate up to three people. If you're working here, we can put a small desk in the main room - though most people work on the kitchen table.
* Fully equipped Kitchen/Diner with washing machine, clothes drying rack, iron, ironing board, vacuum, etc.
* Own bathroom - which actually has a shower.
* TV and WiFi internet access. Our WiFi is "super-fast fibre broadband" and usually very good. There are BT WiFi and BT Wifi-with-Fon connections available here too.

Saan ka pupunta

Eckford, United Kingdom

Our village website describes Eckford as follows: "A peaceful valley now - gracious, well farmed, well wooded, the countryside not flat but gently undulating, this area has seen all the social changes that history has known." The history here, as in the rest of the Scottish Borders, is indeed rich and interesting. There are many beautiful walks near the village, with abundant wildlife (including a bird reserve at the nearby Wooden Loch). You're also near some of the best sites and sporting activities that the Borders can offer: fishing on the Tweed, Floor's Castle, Schloss Golf & Country Club, the ancient abbeys of Jedburgh, Melrose, Kelso & Dryburgh, the Southern Upland & St. Cuthbert's Ways. Not too far from us, there are the "7 Stanes" world-class mountain biking centres at Glentress, Innerleithen and Newcastleton. Don't forget Real Wood Studios and sawmill, where you can see the stunning work of local furniture makers and artists. Plus you're just over an hour away from the historic cities of Edinburgh (with its amazing annual International Arts Festival) and Newcastle-upon-Tyne where there is much to do and see.

NB - I'm not over-enamoured with the way "Street View" shows the village! Don't be put off though, Eckford is a lovely, friendly little village and The Old School - built in the early 1860s and which can't really be seen via Street View - is set back from the main road with a sweeping garden and views up to Wooden Hill.

I'm a book designer, editor, and artist working in partnership with Graeme Murray to make artworks in wood using local Scottish hard and soft woods, often incorporating other materials in our designs including stains and gilts, glass, metal and stone. In 2009, we purchased The Old School at Eckford. Our plan: to build a creative place near the workshops at Real Wood Studios, Ancrum (where Graeme is a Director) to enable us to develop our work. The Old School provides the perfect space for the photography, film, drawing and study that informs this work. Real Wood Studios is a collectively owned enterprise specialising in the creative use of locally sourced native hardwoods in the Scottish Borders. The Old School sits on about an acre of land with beautiful views, flower beds, an orchard and substantial vegetable and herb gardens. The garden is more wild than immaculate but it's a productive and creative environment that visitors are welcome to share. The countryside around us provides some wonderful walks.

Sa iyong pamamalagi
The beauty of The Old School is that guests can have complete privacy. We like to meet our guests though, to exchange stories and interests. On occasion we'll invite you into our home for a slap up breakfast (schedules permitting) and we often "hang out" over a glass of wine or even dinner if guests are interested and, again, time permits.
