    “This cottage was an excellent base ...”
    This cottage was an excellent base for our week in Jedburgh and the Scottish Borders. The location is brilliant just a few minutes walk from the centre. The house had all amenities, is very clean and modern. The decor is tasteful, furniture comfy, everything worked as it should and the owner was very responsive. We thoroughly enjoyed our break. Thank you.
