  • "Beautiful house set in beautiful surroundings."

    Welcoming and friendly hosts who left a generous welcome pack and were available if required during our stay. We were a family of ten ranging from six to ninety years and the house and the area were loved by all. The kids loved the large garden area. Bonus being a bungalow given we had three young children with us, they also had their own dining table in the kitchen. Fantastic stay. Thank you from all of us.

  • "Stayed here from the 10th to 12th November 23 as a weekend family away to celebrate a family members 30th birthday."

    We were met by the owners upon arrival who ensured we were happy before leaving us to it. The house is lovely, well equipped with American style Fridge Freezer, induction hob and double oven. The kitchen has an integrated washing machine and dishwasher and the owner even left washing tablets for both. The kitchen area , which has 2 dining tables easily accommodated the 11 people in our party. The house has a large living room, cloakroom with WC, 2 further bathrooms off the hallway and 6 bedrooms , 4 of which have en-suite facilities all on the one level. The house is sat in well maintained grounds and is a stone throw from the River Tweed. The owners also pointed us in the direction of a lovely walk which was beautiful at this time of year. Peebles is around 3.5 miles away (10 minutes by car) I wouldn't hesitate recommending the property , we'll definitely be back in the future! Thanks again to the owners for making us feel welcome !

Often chatted with the friendly owners, who provided storage for our bikes.... There's a nice tranquil streamside area across the road where our dog enjoyed paddling, also with table and chairs. We're ramblers and "leisure" cyclists, roads immediately south over the Tweed were nice and quiet and enjoyed the tramac Peebles Hydro to Cardrona ride, this time only walked the easier nearby hills along with the nearby ex Railway track and Neidpath tunnel.

The accommodation was immaculate, with a great range of facilities and plenty of cups, glasses and crockery! The herbs/spices were a lovely extra touch. The photos really don't do it justice. It was also the perfect location to explore the Scottish Borders (and further afield) and there are lovely walks in all directions from the house itself. The garden was also lovely, with a great space for our two dogs to run round and for us all to sit out in. Would highly recommend and may very well come back soon ourselves!

    Good facilities in the house, especially each bedroom having it’s own bathroom (although a few extra hairdryers would be useful!). The only thing lacking is a separate dining room - there’s not one big dining table seating 12 and it gets cramped in the kitchen when everyone’s seated and people are serving and clearing up. But overall we had a great stay.
