“Lovely house, great location, fab holiday”

person found this review helpful

The main picture belies how nice the house is. Lovely cul de sac. House was clean,, spacious and comfortable...although floors were a tad squeaky... Nice little back patio too. Perfect location as base for walks, road bike rides, and tourist locations... drove to Edinburgh and parked within an hour, went to picturesque abbs head, holy island and lovely but hard walk up very big hill to the grey mares tail waterfall and loch. Fell in love with Melrose itself..and had great Italian meal there. No rain all week in daytime. Fabulous break, beautiful countryside and great house. Host was very helpful and friendly. Would recommend and revisit.

Thank you, I agree the house is very deceptive, especially how roomy the kitchen area is. I think it a great location too but I live in Newstead too

“Lovely place for a relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 10 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The house was nice and quiet and an easy walk (off road) into Melrose. Everything was very clean and efficient. Parking was easy and its a good base for walking the Eildon Hills, along the lovely Tweed valley, and for lots of good cycle trails. Would happily return.

Great little getaway place. Very clean an quiet-private. Close to Melrose and Galasheils for groceries. Landlord came to bat whenever we needed help or questions answered. Can't say enough good about Speycaster. Would not hesitate to rent again. Thankyou Sheena.

“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.
