This was our second time Lavender Blue cottage and once again exceeded our expections. Even though the weather conspired against us we still enjoyed our family get together. There is nothing that you could want that is not supplied in this cottage and I wholeheartly recommend Lavender Blue.

Laura is the example that all owners should strive for she went out of her way to make it warm an welcoming even putting up a Christmas tree that my daughters really appreciated.
The cottage is very pretty to look at and inside is just as you would imagine old world charm.
Everything has been thought of and if it has not I am sure Laura would do her upmost to rectify it if possible.
Lovely bedrooms with nice quality bedding , lot of storage if you should need it .
Bathroom is roomy with nice towels and a bath which I personally like the option of having.
Big homely kitchen with everything you could think of the only negative is the weather was very very cold, normal for the Borders at that time of year and downstairs would feel quite cold when coming back from being out all day so would suggest putting on heating for a couple of hours before you are due back and it will be lovely and toasty when you arrive.
The nicest private rental we have ever stayed in.

“Absolutely fabulous”
Reviewed 21 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I have to say that Lavender Blue cottage is one of the best equipped cottages that I have stayed at. There is nothing that you could want that isn't there, even the dog was catered for with biscuits for her. There is enough crockery, cutlery and utensils for even the largest family. All in all a very comfortable and warm home even in mid October. The free Wifi connection is also a great bonus. I will definitely be returning to Lavender Blue.
