“Such a beautiful apartment!”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The apartment is even nicer then in the pictures! The style is lovely! We loved cooking in the nice equipped kitchen and sitting in the livingroom in front of the fireplace... We had a great stay! And Lucy and her family are great hosts!

Only the Wifi is a little bit shy ;) But it was like that in almost every place we stayed in scottland during our trip, maybe the scots just have better things to do than to surf in the internet so it isn't that important for them :D
If you want to use the internet only use one device at a time and stay on the left side of the couch or sit at the table ;)

And I would love to have a radio so you could listen to music while cooking, but everything else was perfect! I would recommend staying there! And I hope we will come back some day! :))

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your kind comments. We do have BT infinity here so the wifi should be top notch but thank you for bringing it to our attention - it may be that the signal struggles getting through our very old thick walls at times. And perhaps it was too well disguised but there is a Roberts radio in the bedroom and of course digital radio on the TV for perfect reception.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 6 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We came to visit family and needed somewhere local to stay. This place was perfect for our needs. Lucy the owner was lovely and really helpful if there was anything we needed. It was in a beautiful location, although I would recommend making sure you have a car, as it's in quite a secluded area. The flat itself was beautifully clean and decorated, as well as being well equipped. I would definitely recommend lee penn to anyone wanting a quiet getaway. I will also be recommending this place to other family members who need accommodation.

“A great three nights away, wish it was longer!”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Stayed at Lee Penn for three nights at the end of October. The property was bright with modern décor and spotlessly clean!

Although there isn’t much in the immediate vicinity in terms of shops or pubs/restaurants, Peebles is about five minutes away with a regular bus service which runs late into the evening so this wasn’t an issue (can also recommend the Mercat View for a great meal). Coming back to the cosy fire in the evenings was brilliant.

We had a great three nights here, only wish we were there for longer!

“Excellent accommodation.”
Reviewed 1 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Great location, extremely comfortable and well appointed apartment. The quality of Lee Penn apartment and the beauty of the surrounding area meant I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday.
Lucy the owner and her husband were very helpful and friendly and it was like a home from home.
Cannot recommend highly enough.

“Lovely warm welcome”
Reviewed 21 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The apartment is comfortable and homely and the owner Lucy was welcoming and helpful. Parking is off road and nearby . We found it quiet and relaxing staying at Lee Penn and would certainly go back again.

“Mountain bikers haven”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We wanted to be close to Glentress to mountain bike but also wanted a nice place to come back to at the end of the day. It was a beautiful apartment, immaculate and had everything we needed. Gorgeous comfy bed and furnishings with oodles of hot water and a great shower. Kitchen was well equipped with all the mid cons. Highly recommend this gem of a find and really appreciated all the thoughtful little touches that helped make our stay so special
