Spotlessly clean cottage with secluded garden. All facilities, the most comfortable beds I have slept in including my own !.
Comprehensive welcome pack greatly appreciated. Lovely area with many places of interest.
Hosts Pat and Mike Hogg are friendly, helpful and easily contactable.
I would love to return in the future.

“Beautiful Cottage in an ideal location”

Recently returned from a week long stay at Orchard Cottage where we enjoyed a very relaxing time in fantastic surroundings. The cottage is modern, tastefully furnished and extremely well equipped, our teenage sons particularly enjoyed using the free wi-fi. The owners left a very generous welcome package that appeared to have been catered to suit the make up of our party and the cottage was stocked with everything that you could need for a weeks stay. Darnick is a lovely village situated on the outskirts of Melrose and is within 20 mins walk from the town centre and its many good quality restaurants, our favourites were The Townhouse and Monte Casino. The whole family look forward to returning at the earliest opportunity.
