“Incredibly friendly hostess, fantastic location and very comfortable accomodation.”
Reviewed 2 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

we had a fantastic holiday staying in Saddlery cottage, we were made so welcome and our boys loved the freedom to play in the beautiful garden with Zac the dog!
Very handy for walking or cycling into the village of Melrose and also to get up onto the beautiful Eildon Hills.
Cant wait to come again

“Peaceful, luxurious and welcoming.”
Reviewed 2 August 2013 for a stay in August 2012

We booked in for a weekend and loved it. Beautiful location, quiet, great for relaxing and a great nights sleep. We were lucky with the weather too which helped. We even arranged for our elderly parents to go and stay there too as Its a family run, friendly business with a great personal touch.

“Lovely cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We loved the large cottage and particularly its location - being in a rural setting but being able to walk into Melrose. The owners were friendly but left us to our own devices - which we like! We only stay in places where our dogs are also welcome as they were here. Would definitely visit again.

“Thoroughly recommended - any time of the year!”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We have stayed at the Saddlery on many occasions over the years, and at different times of the year, with family and friends. Always found the property very clean, warm and with everything you would need for a relaxing break in the wonderful Scottish Borders. Donald and Claire always ensure a warm welcome, and are on hand to help anytime, and were great for information and advice on local attractions and facilities. The recent refurbishments have improved the house even more - thanks!!

“Let down by a lack of attention to detail”
Reviewed 12 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

What a shame this potentially beautiful cottage was let down by a lack of attention to detail. E.g. a lack of accuracy (some significant) in the advertised property details, inadequate cleaning, windows & doors which were difficult or impossible to either open or close and tired decor (in particular the mould in the shower room).
