Situated at the head of the Borthwick Water valley, North Cottage at Howpasley Farm Cottages offers a rural retreat for those wishing to step back from the bustle of modern life. Here, the pace of life is slow, and the predominant sounds are those of birdsong, the wind in the trees and water tumbling over rocks in Howpasley Burn.

North Cottage is most likely to appeal to naturalists, birdwatchers, walkers and cyclists and those wishing to explore the wild, open and unpopulated landscapes of the western regions of the Scottish Borders. There is direct access from Howpasley Farm to marked walking trails in Craik Forest, and for cyclists, to many miles of forest roads through the surrounding plantations.

The nearest shops and facilities are in the town of Hawick, some 12 miles from Howpasley; the nearest cities are Carlisle, 1 hour drive south, and Edinburgh is under 2 hours’ drive north.

North Cottage has the traditional layout of farmworkers’ cottages in this region: two decent-sized bedrooms on the first floor and bathroom, kitchen/dining room and living room on the ground floor. The cottage has recently been upgraded and redecorated in 2021 and offers simple but comfortable accommodation for up to four people. For those wanting to relax, it has a TV and DVD player and a small selection of books, DVDs, jigsaw puzzles and board games. An oil-fired boiler provides heating and hot water, and the living room has a wood burner.

North Cottage has its own garden with a picnic table and there is ample, dedicated car parking; storage space for bikes is available in an adjoining shed. Internet access via broadband is provide but please note that the area has no mobile phone signal.

Once a sizeable sheep farm, Howpasley Farm steadily reduced in size during the 20th century as more and more of its hill grazing was sold off for commercial forestry; farming activities are now focused on grazing the fields at lower levels and on the creation and management of conservation woodland. Visitors are welcome to walk the farm tracks alongside Howpasley Burn and explore those fields where sheep are not currently grazing.

North Cottage can be booked together with South Cottage (ref UK35715) to accommodate up to 8 guests.

There is a fenced river in the grounds, 50 meters from the properties.

The cottages are situtated on a working sheep farm.
