“We love the place. The hosts, Pete ...”
We love the place. The hosts, Pete & Linda were very nice. We were so grateful that Pete waited for us at the train station, as we arrived late so it would not be easy for us to find the place as it was cold & dark. Thanks, Pete & Linda for the wine and the food. The place is exactly as advertised and very clean. My son enjoyed feeding the swans at the Gunknowe Loch, which is a beautiful lake in front of the house. Although the location is away from the city, there is bus & train stations ...

Although the location is away from the city, there is bus & train stations within less than 15mins walk, thus making it convenient to commute. We had a wonderful holiday in Scotland.

The Borders village of Tweedbank, as the name suggests, is situated near the River Tweed, which is one of Britain’s best salmon rivers. 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.
