  • "East Lodge is in beautiful surroundings and close to the Tweed."

    There are a variety of walks from the house which were enjoyed by our two Westie. The owners live close by and were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend a visit to Galashields to see the Great Tapestry of Scotland, it is beautiful and certainly worth a visit.

  • "Very comfortable stay."

    Everything you need provided. The owners sent a very helpful email about what was provided beforehand. Lovely location off the beaten track. Very quiet, lovely grounds. Lots of walking on the doorstep, including riverside walks. Lots of wildlife. The road in is single track with passing places, and we rarely met anything, so not a problem. Easy reach to Edinburgh, Kelso, Peebles etc. Our only criticisms, and they are minor, is we found the pillows a bit hard, and for a cottage which would accommodate 7, a 4 slice toaster would be better, but not a deal breaker! Would happily stay here again.

  • "The house was nice and we appreciated the en suite bedrooms."

    We weren't however expecting the kitchen to be as small as it was. The photo on your website is quite misleading. We found it very narrow and difficult for more than one person to be in at a time. We knew there would not be a dishwasher but feel it would be very useful given the lack of space. We are a family that loves to cook so were disappointed with this. The cottage is in a lovely setting though and we very much enjoyed lots of great walks both in and beyond the estate.

  • "We had a wonderful week in this cottage."

    It is a beautiful and tranquil location, with plenty of walking, cycling and running from the doorstep. The cottage itself is lovely with everything you could need for a holiday. It is warm and cosy, especially with the log burner on. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, as are the en suites. The owners are friendly and obliging, and the date slices on arrival were delicious! We definitely hope to return.

  • "From the moment to arrived to our leaving it was wonderful."

    I really can't think of any bad points. The cottage was clean warm and very well appointed. Ideal if you have a dog some lovely walks on your door step. Close to small village but not within walking distance about 3 miles. Galashiels and Peebles equal distance if you want more shops. We actually didn't venture further than the walks with the dog. Excellent wi fi. Will return beautiful setting

  • "Very nicely presented with attention to detail and good quality fixtures and fittings."

    The central heating very capable - we were turning radiator stats down for the first few days. En-suite bathrooms for each room was a luxury and a ground floor room made it suitable for the elderly. We enjoyed the location on the Elibank Estate. Excellent traditional shops as well as Coop in Innerleithen

  • "Beautiful cottage in a sublime setting."

    We had such a wonderful and relaxing holiday. I would definitely return to this part of Scotland and to this cottage. It is quite a bit further from the village than we expected which wasn’t a problem for us but anyone hoping to walk to the local store might be disappointed. Great area for walkers and cyclists and a bit off the usual Scottish tourist trail so the roads etc. were not that busy.

  • "East Lodge at Elibank House Estate was an absolute pleasure."

    It is a perfect location for a getaway without being too isolated that you have to pack the kitchen sink to take with you. Plenty of shops and options close by but the Lodge itself is set in some beautiful grounds with nice walks and scenery as soon you step out the door. The owner was a pleasure to deal with, I'm sure my group and I will be booking again.

  • "The East lodge was beautiful, the lodge itself was lovely and clean."

    It had everything we needed and was very comfortable. There were 6 adults a baby and a dog and there was plenty of space for us all. The Elibank estate was lovely to walk round even in the wintery weather we had a great time. There's also a short drive to get to the local towns to have a trip out. We will be going back again as we had a great time.

    The cottage was of a very high standard with welcoming owners . The setting was amazing , nestling in forest with widlife all around . Although we were unable to take advantage of the walking surrounding the cottage it is an outstanding feature that will appeal to country lovers and families looking for something different . It is well situated to explore the Borders and the rich history of the area . We would recommend it highly .

  • "Beautiful location."

    Lots of gorgeous walks with the dog and, thanks to the perfect seasonal weather, sledging for kids. The surrounding forest brought birds, pheasants, grouse etc., to the garden. The owners were welcoming and couldn’t have been more helpful and pleasant. The house was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The wood burning stove added to the cosy atmosphere at this time of year. The number of lovely bathrooms was a real bonus. Nearby Peebles was a lovely town to spend a day. And a train trip to Edinburgh for Hogmanay was the real icing on the festive cake. A perfect new year holiday.
