  • "We loved our stay at Falla."

    The cottage was very well equipped and had everything we needed. Wendy was on hand for queries and was a great host. The beds were comfortable and the cottage was lovely and clean. We will definitely be recommending to friends and family.

  • "I can confidently say that it is among the cleanest and most well-managed properties I have stayed at."

    If, like me, you are looking for comfort and tranquility in a rural area, this property is even more perfect. Wendy was very kind and also very kind to leave basic necessities for a breakfast the next day in case you arrive too late to do the shopping! As for the Borders, they really amazed me. I have thoroughly visited many parts of Scotland, which I love dearly, but I must say that the rolling valleys and hills of this area ....Wow! A small note for motorcyclists (of which my husband and I are part) this is the right place! But have respect for the place and pay close attention! In short, everything is truly recommended! Thank you very much!

  • "Falla Farmhouse kept appearing in our searches and we kept putting it on our favourites list."

    Well this year we looked to book with only 2 months notice and again Falla came up so we just booked it. We are so glad we did as the house is very well kept and so comfortable on a cold January day. The bed in the master bedroom is by far the comfiest bed we've slept in and as it's quite remote it's nice and dark for those beautiful starry nights so if you like astronomy and have a telescope like us you'll be in your element at Falla. It was our anniversary week and it snowed on day one and stayed right until we left which was perfect as it gave us an excuse not to venture out and stay nice and cosy indoors. Thank you Wendy for looking after us it's one to return to for sure.

    Top marks, what a lovely property to stay in, in a beautiful setting. Everything was spotlessly clean and furnished throughout to a high standard with lots of extras to enjoy. There were goodies on arrival and a lovely greeting. We walked lots of the hills nearby and visited the local towns and included sightseeing in Edinburgh and parts of Northumbria including Holy Island and it was good to know we had this comfortable cottage to relax in in the evenings. It was such a great holiday thanks to the owners of this fabulous property.

    The property itself is wonderfully located with everything you could need. The location is rural and spectacular. Quiet and yet close enough to Jedburgh that a quick pop to town for something is not hard. Wendy and family welcoming and the farm eggs to die for. Felt relaxed and refreshed after the tranquility of Falla. I would recommend it to everyone families or couples you will find everything that you need and so much more.

    Extra touches , wine, milk etc provided as a welcome gift and a visit from the landlady shortly after arrival to welcome us. The cottage is on a working farm but this does not produce noise or smell to detract from the wonderful surroundings. Anyone with a low riding car will have to take care on a short section of uneven approach road as it is rather uneven

When you enter the farmhouse for the first time there is a lovely welcome pack waiting for you with a few necessities together with a thoughtful gift of wine and chocolates and a welcome card. If you want a holiday to chill and relax then this is the place to go. The location is such that if you wanted to do a bit of travelling and visit places there are plenty to choose from within a short drive away. We even had a day trip to Edinburgh which was only about 90 mins drive away. Jedburgh is only a 10 min drive and a lovely place to visit.
