  • "This was our second visit to Tiore and, although the weather wasn't brilliant, we enjoyed the opportunity to relax in a beautiful, well-equipped cottage with very friendly and helpful hosts."

    We are very fond of the Scottish Borders and although this cottage is a little way outside Kelso, it is ideally situated to explore the region.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Tiore."

    The cottage was comfortable and felt welcoming, and it is clearly being lovingly maintained both inside and out. The views across open country from the front windows are beautiful, especially in the fine, warm weather we had for our stay.

  • "Lovely cottage in very quiet location."

    Great for long walks. The fresh eggs supplied by the hens next door were excellent. The owners, Peter and Christine are very friendly and approachable should you wish any help. Peters’ woodwork is excellent and anyone visiting should look at his amazing creations. Easy access to local attractions by car.

    The accommodation was a warm, spacious and modernised 2-bedroomed cottage that suited our short break needs, at a very reasonable rate and the owners were handily available if required.

  • "We had the most wonderful week at Tiore - the cottage is spacious, clean, well equipped and in the most beautiful setting."

    We had breakfast and dinner on the decking and we loved watched the swallows darting about. If you’re after peace and quiet then Tiore is the place to be. Christine and Peter are perfect hosts. Home made coffee cake was waiting for us and Christine made gluten free biscuits especially for me. They let us collect the chickens eggs and Peter showed us his wood working studio. We would definitely return! 5*

  • "The most well thought out and considerate accommodation!"

    I was totally blown away by the property having everything we needed any more; from condiments in the cupboard, spare baby shampoo and bubble bath in the bathroom to nightlights across the house. Plus the brownie cake left for us on arrival was amazing and a lovely surprise! We felt totally at home and so so comfortable. The house is wonderful and everything we needed for our week away with our toddler. The garden and space around the house is fantastic! The only thing we can suggest, and this is really a small thing and doesn’t take away from our stay- the knives were rather blunt so we struggled to cut meat and veg. So in love with our stay and absolutely would book again in a heartbeat
