“Superb cottage, highly recommended”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Excellent service from Sue Beck, what a wonderful lady who has made a luxurious home from home. We wanted for nothing, the cottage welcome was a nice touch Sue had the kettle on ready for our arrival, she had left us some milk, fresh orange, an assortment of fruit, eggs and wine. The extensive pantry was stocked in case we had forgotten the essentials.
The cottage was extremely well laid out all on one level and the kitchen/dining/seating area all in one was an ideal place to sit and chat. The lounge was lovely very cosy and the log burner was a great treat (although I'm sure we really didn't need it on). Bedrooms were lovely the bed, pillows and luxurious duvets enveloped you in comfort.
Location was ideal 5 minutes by car to the centre of Kelso or a 25 minute walk. Ideal location for exploring the Borders or Northumberland. We had trip to Edinburgh, Kelso, Jedburgh, Melrose, William Wallace Monument, Scott's view and Coldstream.

Lovely place ideal for peace and quiet watching the wildlife we saw a woodpecker every day feeding on the terrace plus a deer in the field next to the cottage and buzzards plus a hare.

I would thoroughly recommend a visit and we will definitely be returning.

“A must whether you like cottages or not”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have just returned from another wonderful week's stay at Millsyde Cottage in Kelso, which we enjoyed enormously. Part of the Hendersyde Farm organisation, you have to stay here to appreciate the excellence of appointment and amenity that the owners, Sue and Henry Beck, have created.
Luxurious and comfortable in the extreme, Millsyde gives the individual, couple, family, everything they could possibly need for a memorable holiday stay. Nothing is too much trouble for Sue to provide, to make the stay as comfortable as possible. The 'extra mile' is always part of her armoury, making you realise what she does, in her aim to give the best and most restful holiday, is second to none. The cottage is set amidst the peace and tranquility of fantastic Scottish countryside, and yet is only a good five minutes from a major supermarket and a delightful small town.
We have spent many years holidaying in the best Scottish Cottages have had to offer, but nowhere has ever come close to Millsyde. We will definitely be back later in the year.

“Home from home, special weekend with family and friends!”
Reviewed 20 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Just back from a special weekend at Millsyde -

The pictures on here and the website do not do this place justice; we were blown away by everything.

It’s like a home from home, we didn’t want to leave the cottage the whole weekend. The cleanliness is outstanding, and there is a wide variety of amenities in the kitchen and around the cottage that make it that extra bit special.

A warm welcome from Sue was very kind and the rockcakes and afternoon tea went down a treat.

We were impressed that you could bring dogs (well behaved of course), our border terrier had an absolute ball and the heated flooring in the utility room was great for him, he even was welcomed with doggy treats!

We were also impressed by Sue’s kindness in letting us stay after check-out until twelve o’clock which was an added bonus.

Highly recommend Millsyde, we can’t thank Sue enough for her hospitality and she should be proud of herself for creating such a magical holiday home.

We already can’t wait to return and have recommended it to friends, family and work colleagues. Go! You won’t be disappointed!!

“The perfect place as a base to explore the beautiful borders region”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Millsyde is a gorgeous, comfortable place to stay with loads of space, everything you can need and great for a family group! The welcome we received form Sue both personal and treat-wise started the week of perfectly and the wealth of nature on the farm and in the surrounding area were really enjoyable on our daily walks!

The surrounding area was full of fun places to go to and for anyone who loves food - there are some fabulous local producers to seek out. Visiting Cragside, Lindisfarne and Berwick are a must... but just wandering the local paths on a lazy day is fun too. Mainstreet Books in St Boswell's is really lovely as is their new Deli!

“Fabulous accommodation and location”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Enjoyed a fantastic second stay at Millsyde over Easter Weekend. Following our stay over New Year when it rained the whole time it was lovely to see Millsyde in the sun, the sun shone the whole weekend so we enjoyed making the most of being able to sit outside and walks along the river.

Millsyde still has the wow factor, it is beautfiully decorated and so well equipped. It really does have everything you could need and the most comfortable beds. We made the most of all the extras including the eggs that had been left (including chocolate eggs) and the cards and board games.

Having level access and all accommodation on one level meant Millsyde has been perfect for my partner in his wheelchair. There was plenty of room to get round the house, in the bedrooms and en suite which makes life so nice and easy.

Cannot recommend Millsyde highly enough. Would definitely like to return again to see Millsyde at another time of the year!

“Surpassed all expectations......and then some!”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

You have to see Millsyde to believe it. Yes it's true the online photographs show you how high a standard the property and rooms are but what they don't capture is how beautiful each of the rooms are......the attention to detail in each......and the thought put in by the owner so that your every whim is satisfied.

I dare you to need something in the kitchen that isn't already provided, from a Kenwood Chef and a blender to string and a torch - I promise you there is no item you could possibly need that isn't at your fingertips.

The bathrooms have the most fabulous powerful showers and are modern and classy.

The bedrooms have the best quality cashmere throws to keep you cosy and lovely crisp white bed linen. The bed itself is by a country mile the comfiest I've ever slept in away from home.

I could go on like this about every single room but I think it's best that you just check it out for yourself. My husband, my 2 young kids, Grandma and Murphy the black lab had an absolute ball during our stay here. The country walks are fabulous....even when it's raining it's hard not to appreciate the surroundings.

We can't wait to come back.

“Terrific house in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed in Millsyde for a week in October. The house is exceptional - extremely spacious, beautifully furnished, and absolutely fully equipped. The welcome from the Becks is also first rate. The farm setting is lovely and there is also plenty to do nearby. I would recommend Millsyde without hesitation.
