Golden Eagle at Cappercleuch

Since the reintroduction project started a few years ago in the Scottish Borders there have apparently been more than 50 eagles released. They roam far and wide so we don’t spot them on a daily basis, but yesterday there was an excellent view when an eagle came down to a low level in front of the hill that’s behind the cottage. Very exciting!

Prices review

We have had costs increases in respect of laundry, cleaning requisites and heating but we remain on an electricity “fix” so haven’t been hit by that yet. We propose to continue operating without a change to our current 2023 prices until further notice.

Prices update from 1st Feb 2023

Our booking system has had prices for 2023 updated. Clearly things are in a state of flux and we have initially set a below inflation increase just to try and offset some of our increased costs. The price per night from 3 to 6 nights will be £87. The price per night for 7+ nights will be £79 (£8 per night discount). One full week will therefore be £553. If the prices do require to go higher than that by next year we will obviously honour any confirmed bookings at the above prices.

Fishing Permit

If you are staying at Half House Cottage we can now offer you use of a complementary fishing permit, courtesy of the St Mary’s Loch Angling Club.

Gordon Arms

Tommy and Susan who ran the Gordon Arms, Yarrow, have just handed over to new owners Bryn and Oxana Jones. They have bravely decided to open at the Easter Weekend 2022 and we wish them all the very best in their new venture. This change is so new we don’t know exactly what will be on offer in terms of facilities as it appears they are promoting it as “a restaurant with rooms” with less emphasis on the pub element as previously. Best phone to check 01750 82261 or to book a table.

The Gordon Arms is 6 minutes drive from the cottage..


We opened once more for self catering stays at Half House Cottage on the 26th April 2021. Please check our bookings page to check for availability.
