  • "Poor general maintenance: some ceiling lightbulbs out in each of the three rooms, dressing table lamp not working, washers on sink taps need replacing and short flush on cistern not operable."

    Shower not used as wooden shower board looked too unhygienic to stand on. Details suggest "fully equipped kitchen" but no baking dishes, no vegetable peeler, no cheese grater. Great location, reasonably comfortable accommodation let down by poor general maintenance and the lack of any personal contact

  • "The property generally felt 'tired'."

    The fridge didn't work, and when we realised, after a couple of days, we had to throw away food and milk that had gone off. We contacted the owner and he adjusted the fridge temperature, but that was ineffective! The only coolness in the fridge was simply because the freezer compartment door was broken and it wouldn't shut, hence we had unfrozen peas in there. The bottom of the fridge and the towel rail were both rusty too. There were several light bulbs not working in the property - we phoned and left a message asking for them to be replaced, and had no response from the property owners whatsoever, despite them running a guest house next door. We were surprised to find that the kettle, toaster and combined microwave/oven were all running off the same extension lead, which we considered unsafe and therefore had to make sure we didn't use them at the same time. There were broken ornaments on display, and a broken (removed, but fittings still in the wall) shelf in the bathroom. So overall, not a particularly pleasant stay. We actually decided to come home a day early.

    Jedburgh is perfect if you like walking, a lovely village with so many opportunities. Allerton Stables is a very good place to stay. The hosts were relaxed and welcoming and helpful. They fixed our wifi issue immediately. The cottage was well heated and had lots of hot water. That might seem obvious, but it isn't, so it was much appreciated. Lots of room for two people. Extremely comfortable stay.

  • "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.

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.

  • "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

    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

The property

A cosy, detached cottage nestled within the grounds of the owners' guest house on the outskirts of Jedburgh in the beautiful Scottish Borders.

Originally the stable block, this cottage has been thoughtfully converted to provide comfortable accommodation for a couple wishing to explore this popular part of Scotland.

The ground floor of the spacious interior features contemporary open-plan living accommodation with a kitchen, dining area and comfortable sitting area, along with French doors opening out onto a lovely courtyard.

Here, you can sit out at the table with a glass of wine or a chilled beer and enjoy the open outlook across the hills.

Resting within the owners' grounds with flourishing gardens for the guest house adjacent are a pleasant place to unwind.

A short walk down the hill brings you into the pleasant town of Jedburgh.

Only ten miles from the English border and famed for its abbey and its substantial ruins which dominate the town, Jedburgh is also home to Mary, Queen of Scots' house and Jedburgh Castle Jail, now a museum which you can explore at your own leisure.

With Jed Water, a tributary of the Teviot, and circular walks easily accessed from your front door, there is something for everyone at this delightful cottage.
