    “The fact that there was contact ...”
    The fact that there was contact with the owner 48 hours before the holiday begins gives piece of mind. The owner was friendly and helpful. The directions easy to follow and accurate. The apartment was cosy, well equipped , conveniently situated with a pleasant view from the french doors onto the balcony. We felt "at home" within 5 minutes.

Started as a settlement in the 1970s, the village sits between the historic Borders towns of Melrose and Galashiels. Sir Walter Scott’s house, Abbotsford, and its visitor centre is less than a mile away. Tweedbank is surrounded by excellent walking country with the Southern Upland Way and the Borders Abbeys Way passing through the village itself. Close by is Melrose, which hosts the Melrose International Rugby Sevens Tournament each April, and also the Borders Book Festival in June, which is one of Scotland's top literary events and features some of today's most entertaining writers and personalities.
