About the location (Duns, Berwickshire)
Azalea Cottage overlooks the estate's private grounds, frequented by Swans, Ducks and other wildfowl, and Duns Law, site of the old town of Duns and the Covenanter Fort. Today, cattle and sheep are often to be seen grazing upon its slopes. Azalea also sits on the edge of woodland, with access to extensive forest trails and a large variety of mature trees, many bearing identification plates to inspire the curious. The woods are home to Roe Deer, Pheasants, Squirrels and Owls. The cottage itself is easily accessible, yet secluded and guests can often enjoy starlit nights and bathe in the tranquillity of it all.
