“Fabulous Family Getaway”
Reviewed 26 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Our family visited, looking for a peaceful retreat, but close enough to Edinburgh to allow us to visit easily. This cottage was perfect.

Margaret is a thoughtful host, and left us with the supplies to get us started and have a cuppa without needing to unpack.

The bedroom layout was perfect for our group of 3 adults and 1 child. The inside space is large, and makes sharing the space easy without being on top of each other.

The outside area was well used by our daughter, who enjoyed the space and the freedom it allowed her. She also enjoyed hunting for bugs along the path beside the river.

The location is ideal for exploring the borders region, and the Park and Ride into Edinburgh is straightforward and easily accessible.

A great find, and I'd recommend the cottage to anyone looking to visit the area.

“Lovely property in a lovely location”
Reviewed 14 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Great place to stay. Has everything you need, in a fantastic location - very quiet and secluded, with a play area for kids (and the road is quiet enough that you can ride your bikes on) but with Galashiels and Edinburgh close by. A great base to visit the local area (and further afield!) and a very helpful owner! Would definitely come back.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 7 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

What a lovely peaceful place to spend a week exploring the area. The coach house was large and had everything we could think of needing. Thanks to Margaret for a warm welcome but allowing absolute freedom of their grounds to enjoy with the children and mad puppy. We would happily book to stay again. Thanks.

“Lovely accommodation.”
Reviewed 29 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Stayed with a party of four for a work trip in late September. The property offers excellent accommodation to no only stay in comfort but also cater for yourself. Every thing that you need is there including comfy beds, lovely bathroom as well as a nice open fire. I have stayed away a lot an can honestly say we wanted for nothing. The only negative comment about the property is that if you like a local pub this isn't directly to hand but still overall 5 stars.
