This our second summer visit to Violet Cottage. Family and friends stayed with us throughout the week. Everyone was in awe of the cottage and the beautiful garden. Wonderful for the grandchildren. I would suggest a draining board to save your work surface. Not always necessary to put on dishwasher. Look forward to our next visit. Lyn and Tom more

Management response:

So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your positive comments. We look forward to seeing you in the Borders again soon. more
