I booked Tweed Rig for a family weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday and retirement. The house was amazing - well equipped and beautifully furnished with amazing views over the surrounding countryside. the only downside was the last 100 metres of the approach track which was a bit steep and rough.
The house was situated at the top of a steep hill but the view from the balcony made it all worthwhile. The town of Melrose is extremely pretty and full of history. The hotels and pubs were all very good and reasonably priced. The house is spacious and bathrooms are very modern with good showers. The property did have a lot of equipment for babies and children (which we did not need but realize that some people do) and we had to clear out wardrobes in order to store our clothes - a minor detail! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Scottish Borders and great walking and golf.
Spacious, comfortable, modern house set amongst the trees overlooking Gattonside and the River Tweed towards Melrose and The Eildons. Great for walking and exploring the Borders countryside. Plenty of places to eat out too.
Just spent a wonderful four night stay over Easter 2017 at Tweed Rig (we travelled there from Hull, Yorkshire) - 12 adults, 3 children and 3 dogs. From the moment I made the first enquiry to the time we left, the owner and her team couldn't have been more helpful. The house is really spacious, spotlessly clean and is equipped with everything you need. We had more than enough room everywhere in the house, never felt on top of each other at all. On Easter Sunday we cooked a Sunday roast and were all able to sit together at the huge dining table to eat. Melrose is only a 15 minute walk away, nice shops and friendly pubs and eating places. We will definitely be returning. Highly recommended. Cannot thank you enough Debbie, Jean and team. Sue and Family.
Attractive, modern and very spacious property with extensive and comfortable living/dining area with kitchen at one end which was well-equipped with plenty of cutlery, dishes and utensils for our party of 10. Plenty of space in the fridge/freezer. Modern cooker and dishwasher.
Rooms and bathrooms all nicely decorated and furnished. Plenty of towels and bedding. All beautifully clean too.
We felt that much thought had been put into the possible requirements of a large number of guests and there was plenty to entertain the younger members of our group. All ages catered for!
We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony which runs the length of the house and has plenty of seating. Magnificent views across the Tweed Valley.
We all agreed a return visit was definitely necessary!
Good places to eat within walking distance such as The Hoebridge Inn in Gattonside and not far from facilities in Melrose. Many great walks close by,
Cannot reccomend Tweedrig enough. Right from the first time I enquired about the property the owners couldn't have been more helpful. Everything was so simple to arrange. Upon arriving the house was just brilliant. It was really clean and well put together. It has everything you need for a getaway. Unlike most self catering places it was so well equipt with everything.
The views from tweedrig are fantastic. It's great for an option of chilling out but also so close to gala and Melrose if you wish to venture out.
Would reccomend to anyone and would go back
