Harelaw Cottages

Harelaw holiday Cottages are set in a wildlife oasis in the beautiful Bowmont Valley in Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.

About Harelaw Cottages

Set in the hills of upper Glendale overlooking the river Bowmont, Harelaw was originally built in 1593 in the reign of Elizabeth 1, when this part of Britain was a lawless frontier between England and Scotland. Harelaw (house) was rebuilt in 1996 and the cottages in 2004/5. Over the last few decades, the site has been transformed form a dead elm wood into a two acres of wildlife gardens.

Hoolit has its own patio areas with seating to the side with BBQ facilities. To the front of the cottage there is additional seating overlooking the garden and bird feeders.

Harelaw and the cottages are set in 2 acres of mostly wildlife gardens which guests are encouraged to explore. You’ll find a pond, meadow, stream, bridges and ample seating. Have a picnic on the meadow, build a den, find the fairies, play on the swings or just watch the wildlife.

The gardens are home or feeding station to many mammals including bats, hedgehogs, rabbits, hares, weasels, stoats, wood and house mice, bank voles, pigmy and common shrews, brown rats, badgers, foxes, red and roe deer. Guests regularly report seeing bats, deer, weasels and stoats and a firm favourite, the Harelaw Hedgehogs.
