  • "Absolutely delightful place to stay."

    Amazing location and the bungalow was fantastic. Very well equipped and the owners were very accommodating, friendly and welcoming while leaving us well alone to get on with our holiday. Stayed over Christmas and the owners put up a Christmas tree and decorations as well as table decorations for Christmas dinner. Would most definitely recommend and will definitely be returning.

  • "Broombaulks Farm is without a doubt our "go to" UK holiday for our family!"

    This is our 4th stay in the property and it hasn't faultered. The surrounding walks are peaceful and great for dogs, the surrounding towns are welcoming and have everything you need and wonderful places to eat. The house itself is warm, cosy and welcoming and has everything you will need. We will 100% be back again soon!

  • "Lovely clean bungalow."

    Everything you could need. I will say, and it is only my opinion, there are three double beds and it maybe that the property might benefit from having at least 1 king sized or zip link beds. The bedrooms are large and would easily accommodate a bigger bed, again that’s our opinion. This is not a criticism just personal choice. A lovely property in a lovely area

  • "Absolutely lovely holiday cottage, immaculately clean, spacious and well appointed."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The local area has plenty to offer and Brenda, our host, was very kind and welcoming. We sat outside every evening and were prepared for traffic noise, but there was none, just the occasional vehicle passing. We would definitely recommend this property to others.

  • "We visited the property in August of last year and fell in love."

    As soon as we got home we re-booked to come back in the February school holidays and already we are looking to go back in the six weeks holidays as even our 2 year old is upset to be home. The house is so comfortable and clean, it has everything you need for your stay, it feels like a home away from home. It's also full of wildlife around the property and so quiet for being near a main road. The "traffic" isn't a problem in the slightest you get the odd few cars during the day and hardly any at all on a night. At night if you get a clear sky, go and sit and look at the stars it's an unbelievable experience if you live in a city like ourselves. The owners are lovely, lovely people and will help you with anything they can. I love the tray the owner leaves on arrival for you, it feels so personalised to the family visiting somehow! the owner also popped round to tell us a few places we could visit nearby with our children! I must also mention the neighbors as they make their own honey and it's unbelievable and their dog Finn is the most gentle German Shepherd I've ever come across he deserves a mention in this review. We can't wait to return again as soon as we can.

  • "Beautiful property, the owners are lovely and helpful, the house was clean and some treats were left for everyone, dog included."

    The neighbours have some beehives and sell honey from their home, they were a very friendly and a helpful family also. Beautiful walks just out of the door and a short drive away are some very picturesque villages and towns. Some reviews said the traffic noise was to much but its not bad at all, the odd cars etc throughout the day but night time was very quiet. We will return in the future.

  • "The interior of the cottage is lovely."

    Very clean, spacious and well equipped. Brenda gave me a very warm welcome on arrival. Unfortunately the garden and proximity to the A68 meant we cut our stay short. The small grass area with tables and chairs is separated by a hedge to the very busy road so sitting out wasn't really an option for us given traffic noise. In addition, as was noted in the property description before booking, we couldn't let our dog off lead in the garden which proved a bit of a hindrance. The garden really isn't appropriate for having a dog in my opinion as there is only a narrow stretch of grass and a lot of gravel which our dog wasn't keen on! I appreciate my comments on the external space and proximity to the busy road is a personal thing and others may not be concerned about traffic noise. It was a deal breaker for us and the lack of sleep due to traffic noise right through the night (had to have windows open as so hot) unfortunately hampered our stay.

    The fire was lit and the bungalow was really warm and welcoming. We had a lovely tray of treats waiting for us, and a couple of chewy bones for the dog too! We had a lovely week in Jedburgh, and it was lovely to return to the bungalow after chilly days out and light the fire. We are a family of 5 and the accommodation was very spacious. Highly recommended if you are looking to stay in this area.

Settled within the Scottish Borders, on the outskirts of the medieval town of Jedburgh, rests this detached cottage, Broombaulks Farm Bungalow.

Enveloped by rolling countryside hills and perched by the owner's farm, this ground-floor cottage makes a wonderful escape for a family of eight and their canine companions.

Park up at the foot of the property, where the spacious driveaway allows up to three cars, making unloading the vehicle an easy task.

Step through the ruby red door into the entrance hallway, here you can kick off your walking boots, ready for an outdoor adventure.

Discover the bright and sunny sitting room, hosting a crackling woodburning stove and two plush sofas to unwind on as you flicker through the TV with Freeview.

There is also a collection of DVDs, so why not have a movie marathon?

Moving through the property, you will find the fitted kitchen/ diner, with white-washed cupboards and an electric oven and hob to rustle up tasty dishes.

Store your favourite bottle of wine in the fridge and there is a washing machine to take care of any spillages!

Dine together at the lengthy table, where you can tuck-into hearty meals and catch-up on the highlights of the holiday.

After a day exploring the splendour of Scotland, jump in the shower for a refreshing rinse before putting on your pyjamas and finding your bedroom.

The cottage hosts four bedrooms, there are three doubles and a single with a trundle bed, all with furniture to house your belongings.

Awaken with a steaming cup of coffee in the rear garden to soak in the peaceful location, as you ponder the excursions for the day.

For a fishing spot with a view, why not spend the afternoon at Upper Hass Loch, the perfect place for a picnic.

Pack your hiking gear and ramble the untamed landscape of Shaw Craig, stroll around Whitelee Moor National Nature Reserve and absorb history at Carter Bar Boundary Marker.

Take a short drive into the heart of Jedburgh to marvel at the remains of its Abbey, view the 15th century Ferniehirst Castle and learn about the tragedy of the Queen at Mary Queen of Scots' Visitors Centre.

Venture a little further afield to the market town of Kelso, where you can walk along the River Tweed, tour an 18th century castle and to fuel your adventure there are a cluster of eateries to choose from.
