“Excellent Accommodation - Clean, warm well equipped.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

My husband and three friends stayed in this tastefully decorated house, where the smallest details had been addressed. There was even a real Christmas tree in the lounge. The woodburning stove was ready for use and the whole house was spotless. The rooms had been finished to a high standard and the kitchen was very well equipped. We would return to this property. It is close the centre of Peebles. 10/10

“Stunning house, beautifully furnished by owners who have an eye for detail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Have just returned home from a lovely long weekend in sunny Peebles. Ludgate house has several advantages over many other self catering properties: 1) it is within close proximity to the town centre and the river where lovely long walks can be had, 2) the house is truly immaculate and beautifully furnished in such a tasteful manner, and 3) the owners are wonderful and take great pride in ensuring that their visitors are well catered for, whether it be providing toys/games/dvds for little ones, or giving the oldies the opportunity to taste various whiskys in their "tasting" cupboard whilst relaxing in front of the cosy wood burning stove in the sitting room. The two double bedrooms are of a generous size whilst the bunk bed room is perfect for the younger members of the party with it's trendy storage space and stars and moon blackout blind to hood wink them into thinking that it is still night time! Peebles is a quaint little town which is well kept and only about a 25 minute drive to the Edinburgh Park & Ride. Rosslyn Chapel is also just down the road.

“Lovely house and owner just a shame about the weather !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We booked a last minute short break in the lovely ludgate house in order to celebrate my birthday. Could not fault the accommodation, beautiful property in excellent location with pretty much everything you could need. Unfortunately weather was against us for our stay so didn't see as much of the area as we had hoped but luckily as the accommodation was so nice we didn't mind too much and just used the time to recharge our batteries. A few more children's toys would have made it even more perfect. Though we didn't meet Alison the owner she was extremely helpful and pleasant in her communications. Definitely recommend.

“Home from home - simply fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed during the Easter school holidays with our 3 children and au pair and it was simply fantastic. It's tastefully decorated and you will find everything you need. We'll definitely would go again! Best place we stayed in for years.

The only downside is that there is no Internet. Alison believes a holiday should be without and in principle I agree but as I had to logon for work I was reduced to either stand outside the house to get a decent network connection, hoping my emails would download or one day I went to Edinburgh for a day out of desperation. The mobile reception is very poor with Three or Vodafone so Internet would allow to make some phone calls .... Also, I use tesco home delivery (with 3 kids you won't see me much in the actual shop!) and without a decent signal this proved equally a challenge.

Overall I would recommend it without a doubt!

Management Response
2 Jul 2013
Hello, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. I would like to respond to the Internet issues; I totally agree the mobile reception is terrible for Three mobile and Vodafone, we find Tesco Mobile and certain others are fine. For any potential guests reading this, there are ways of getting online in Peebles without having to resort to going all the way to Edinburgh. The local library is roughly 6-7 minutes walk away and you can get online there for free, although obviously opening times are restricted. The Park Hotel, Tontine and Peebles Hydro all offer free BT wi-fi as well. I am sure there are other local high street places but I need to find out more myself!

“Home from home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

From the moment I first made contact with Alison I had a good feeling about Ludgate. This was confirmed once we arrived at the cottage after a horrible journey through the snow and ice...unbelievable at the end of March! We immediately felt at home at Ludgate. Alison has certainly gone to a great deal of effort to ensure her guests have a great time - her attention to detail is fabulous and certainly wasn't wasted on us. I could go into a great deal of detail about how well equipped the house is, how comfortable the beds are, how cosy the log fire is, about little extras like the complimentary wine and whiskey etc etc etc but I would simply recommend you go and discover for yourselves just how perfect Ludgate Is. We enjoyed every second we spent in Ludgate and are already planning our next visit.
