Internet fine.Minus points - couches a bit uncomfortable, only one tea towel, no dishwasher tabs, no instructions on how to put on heating so a bit cold one night, (plenty of hot water), a bit shocked to be left an old and well-used wash-up sponge, although it seemed 'clean' but didn't choose to use it.

One towel had a raggy edge but all clean. Loose toilet seat in upstairs bathroom, very noisy hot tap. I know this sounds negative but I expect real attention to detail when I rent for a holiday. Please leave some cupboard space in the kitchen for a 'pantry' and a towel in the downstairs cloakroom and kitchen would be helpful. I understand that things had to be removed re Covid 19 but who would have thought I needed to bring salt and pepper?

About the location

ST BOSWELLS

Melrose 5 miles; Kelso 10 miles.

St Boswells sits on the south of the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders. There is much evidence of Roman occupation, dating from almost two thousand years ago. Today, St Boswells is known for being on the route of St Cuthbert’s Way, the long distance path from Melrose Abbey to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. The village boasts a hotel, café, several shops, post office, butcher and a garage. As well as spectacular salmon and brown trout fishing on the River Tweed, the local riverside walks take in attractive scenery. An ideal venue for walkers and cyclists, St Boswells is surrounded by the gorgeous Borders landscape. If you want to venture further afield, Edinburgh is approximately an hour away, as is the Berwickshire coast.
