    “Great Cottage to stay in”
    This is one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in. It was spotlessly clean and everything was well thought out and of good quality. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, but left us to enjoy our holiday in peace. We would definitely recommend this property.

Widely acclaimed golfing is available at Duns and nearby Dunbar whilst fishing for trout and salmon on the Tweed and Whiteadder River is also available with permits available locally.
