“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 2 December 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The 3 of us stayed here in July 2015. It was very easy to find. Beautiful location. A very clean and well appointed house. We loved EVERYTHING about it.
The walk down to the via duct was amazing. We found a new walking path every night.
Close to amenities. Excellent parking.
All in all a 100% property.

“The perfect cottage to enjoy the Scottish Borders”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent two weeks in August 2015 in this wonderful cottage and I must admit that this has been one of the best cottages we've stayed in. It is very well equipped, tidy and spotless. Sheena was very friendly and helpful. It is the perfect location to explore the beauty of the Scottish Borders. We can fully recommend this cottage for your vacation!!!
