  • "A pleasant quirky little cottage."

    Lovely comfy bed, quality bedding. and decently equipped. Owners keen to make sure your stay is comfortable. Well situated for exploring the borders. A large garden which I think will look magnificent in the summer. Bathroom could do with a little TLC but on the whole a charming place. Would stay again.

  • "The accommodation was exactly as described, however, it was slightly less suitable for dogs than we had hoped."

    With the inclusion of the word "courtyard" we inferred that it was available for us and the dogs but we found that it was for the owners' use and they had a large, lovely labrador. This meant that there was nowhere no let them out, except on a lead. It confirmed that in any other accommodation, we need a fully enclosed and dog-proof area. Another small negative was the cooking facility. Although exactly as illustrated, the reality was that it was a little confined for cooking. We were perhaps a little over optimistic. Jedburgh is a very nice little town with lots of green space but ironically, in a town with poo bins on every corner, there were hardly any dog-friendly pubs, restaurants or cafes that were actually open or even listed. The accommodation was very comfortable though and in a great central location for the town centre. The owners were welcoming and friendly. They welcome dogs, of course, but anyone who books The Stables for that purpose, just be aware of the couple of points we have raised. Overall, though we had a nice stay.

  • "The owners were lovely and very welcoming."

    As we had our wee puppy with us, we were hoping for a dog-friendly place to stay and we found it! Very conveniently located closed to Jedburgh city centre and a great base from which to explore the Borders and Northumberland. ♥

  • "Great Hosts."

    They looked after us the whole way through. Our dog was made to feel welcome which is a big plus for us. The cottage isn't the biggest but the space is used well. Perfect for a couples get away.

  • "William and Nina great, interesting people."

    Extremely helpful when asked about the area. House used for b & b and converted stable for self catering set in beautifully landscaped gardens. Very quiet and so peaceful after days out exploring Scottish Borders. Highly recommended and will most definitely return asap. Thank you William and Nina.

    ideal place for visiting borders, walking distance to shops, restaurants etc. Having use of garden was nice in evenings. Shame didn't get to see hosts or get to know them as they were away but would certainly book again.

  • "Although I read on "Other Feedback Sites" that the Accommodation at Allerton House Stables, we found most of them to be basically Untrue, the Owners were very welcoming, the Accommodation was small but clean, tidy and had plenty of useful equipment for a Couple to stay in comfort."

    It was very close to all Local Amenities and the Resident Black Labrador Jambo was Gorgeous!

  • "This is a little jewel of a cottage(The Stables) just a few minutes walk to Jedburgh."

    It is situated adjacent to a four star Georgian Guest owner run by a lovely couple William and Nina. They recently refurbished it so everything is in excellent working order, well equipped with good facilities. Everything is perfectly clean and orderly with all you would need for an extended stay such as ours. Clothes washing facilities are provided in the guest house whenever necessary. The owners went out of their way to make our two week stay very comfortable. We were delighted to make thei acquaintance of William and Nina who are excellent hosts. We were highly recommend staying there.

  • "A very comfortable spot - small but everything you would need."

    No washing machine - but who needs that for a week's holiday- owners ready to step in if necessary. Jedburgh has a lot to offer.

  • "Accommodation was very good if on the small side."

    The three of us, my husband, myself, and Fergus the dog, were perfectly happy with the set up. Kitchen facilities are pretty basic but as we only used this for breakfast didn't detract from our holiday. I don't know where you would put it but an area for wet clothes and boots would be a real plus. We were well impressed with pub grub in the area and how easy it was to find places where the dog was welcome. We will definitely come back !!!!

  • "Cottage very poorly equipped for self catering."

    Lack of basic utensils and only one cereal bowl between two people.Laundry facilities as on website were not available as owner on holiday. This was very inconvenient as had to find and pay ( £10.00) per wash load. Cottage was very dirty - thick dust and cobwebs everywhere. Fridge dirty and microwave was filthy and smelled strongly of bacon. No pole to open/shut velux windows which meant having to climb on furniture to do so. This was not safe. These points spoiled what could otherwise have been a very nice holiday.

    I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay, had we known that you were dissatisfied at the time, we would have been more than happy to put things right for you. With reference to the laundry, we advise that you must request this prior to your stay. We have not had any prior reports of any issues with cleanliness for our property but if this was mentioned at the time, we would have been more than happy to address any of your concerns. We regret any inconvenience caused during your stay in the beautiful borders and would like to thank you for your comments. Property Owner

    Very doggie friendly which is important to us. Only bugbear downstairs toilet through the night but that's because we are oldies. Would certainly recommend.

  • "Accommodation was small but as described, they allow pets but wouldn’t take anything bigger than a medium sized dog due to size."

  • "Compact, but had everything a couple will need for a comfortable stay in a lovely part of the country."

    We found it an ideal base for touring the Scottish Borders and Northumberland. In speaking to the owners (only been there 4 months), they have great plans to upgrade the accommodation over the winter, but we found it already very homely. Would stop again if we found ourselves taking a break in the locality, which is really our own judgement of quality and our best possible recommendation to others.

  • "Property smaller than expected but lovely and clean."

    New owners of only a few months indicated that they would be refurbishing the property this winter as they felt it needed an uplift. Only drawback as far as we were concerned was that the toilet was in the wetroom downstairs, not very convenient for older customers who need these facilities in the night. Would not be suitable/large enough for disabled guests due to very small staircase with awkward bend

About the location


Kelso 12 miles; Melrose 13 miles; Peebles 37 miles.

The historic town of Jedburgh is a small, quiet town lying 10 miles inside the Scottish Border, situated halfway between Newcastle upon Tyne and Edinburgh. Set amidst the stunning countryside of the Borders, Jedburgh has much to offer visitors. There are charming shops, pubs and award-winning, family-run restaurants to enjoy nearby, as well as historic attractions such as the fascinating Jedburgh Castle Jail, Mary Queen of Scots House and the imposing abbey, which towers over the town and dates back to 1138. Great fishing can be enjoyed on the Teviot, Tweed and Jed Rivers and there are 21 excellent golf courses to choose from. The Borders also offer some superb walking and cycling over breathtaking hillsides or amongst the enchanting Border Forests, and along St Cuthbert's Way, a 62 mile trail between Melrose and Lindisfarne, which passes Harestanes Countryside Visistor Centre. The towns of Melrose, Kelso and Peebles are just a short drive away and are a joy to explore at leisure.
