The Village of Morebattle

The Burrow is well situated to access and explore the Scottish Borders, North Northumberland and the Northumberland coast.

The historic village of Morebattle dates back to at least the Iron Age, and set in remote upland countryside 8 miles north-east of Jedburgh, 6 miles south-east of Kelso and 3½ miles south-west of Town Yetholm.

Whilst situated rurally, the village contains a community shop and garden, and restaurant all within a short walking distance of The Burrow. A local petrol station can be found in Town Yetholm.


The Burrow is a great base for exploring the Borders and its turbulent history.

Morebattle is situated right on the St. Cuthbert’s Way (a popular long distance walking route). There are many wonderful areas to explore around Morebattle.

Being on the north-western edge of the Cheviots means the landscape becomes increasingly hilly as you head south. Many of these hills are topped off by traces of settlements and forts, including Morebattle Hill, immediately to the south of the village.
