We stayed here for one night on our way from Aberdeen to Newcastle to take the ferry over to the Netherlands. We wish we had booked a longer stay, and were really gutted to leave! Everything you could possibly wish for (and more!) from a country house - tea and delicious cake by a roaring fire, incredibly comfortable and spotless... More

This luxury bed and breakfast accommodation overlooks Melrose with a stunning backdrop. It's just been awarded a 5 star gold Quality Assurance Award from Visit Scotland and you can see why. I'd recommend visiting at this time of year for the Autumnal colours which the owners, who are very welcoming, have also brought into their amazing property. The bedroom and... More

Lovely setting in the countryside. Friendly and helpful hostess. Beautifully appointed bedroom and lounging facilities. Excellent full Scottish breakfast. Within short drive of most important abbeys and other visitor attractions in the area.

The accommodation and hospitality was first class, highly recommended. Used this as a base for a business trip, the location was stunning. This really is the kind of experience that you'll remember for a long time, for all the right reasons.

The gracious hostess of this hidden gem welcomed us into her home with tea and a crackling fire--amazing since it was August!! Our room had a wonderful view of a nearby mountain and, more importantly, had a comfy bed. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Melrose gave us a wonderful start to our Scotland adventure.

We stayed 2 nights with Sheila & Ian and enjoyed every moment. We were treated like old friends and by the time we left we felt as if we were! Had two lovely breakfasts overlooking the garden and the view. They very much deserve their VisitScotland award.

Delightful weekend break in this beautiful family home, made all the more special by charming hosts. Every detail thought and taken care of - particularly liked the Sherry in the bedroom! - and we both had a terrific night's sleep, in what is a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful location. Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed just one night to break up our journey home but wished we had stayed longer. Beautiful house set at the end of a private road. We arrived rather tired after a big drive and as the weather was warm we chose to sit in the garden and give our dog a run in the large garden / field.... More

Two nights was not long enough to stay in this lovely house.
