COVID 19 UPDATE 03.08.20.

Following the relaxing of government lockdown guidelines we have decided to take a little extra time and remain closed. We are working on a refurbishment plan for the Jedburgh site and very much looking forward to sharing these exciting changes with you all soon!
Our cafes at Tweedbank and Galashiels will also remain closed until further notice.

Please direct all enquiries during this time to

It's all about fun…and making life easy!

We believe in good old fashioned fun – poking around under stones, playing in burns, discovering things for yourself.

Our Mini Beast Safari lets children run backwards and forwards over our little wooden bridges to root out all nature has to offer. Handy guides and collecting pots are always available, and the safari is contained within a manageable area that allows parents to easily keep an eye out for little ones.

We take exploration to another level, but really, the star of the show at Born in the Borders is open countryside and the room to move, run, play and discover.

Inside, a healthy, interesting children’s menu will keep them fuelled up, whilst free snack packs are always available just in case the hunger pangs get too much! Changing facilities are provided, with free nappies and wipes, and the cafe also has a kids area filled with toys and colouring gear. After all, even parents need a break from entertaining occassionally!
