“Beautiful cottage - highly recommended”

Benfield is a really well appointed cottage, the kitchen is very well equiped which is sometimes a problem in holiday cottages. John and Christine (the owners) did everything to make us feel welcome and gave us lots of tips for the places to visit and pubs and restaurants to try.
We loved the complimentary Welcome Basket of local produce which was delicious and a really special touch. The weather was a bit cold but the cottage is cosy and warm. The village has a shop and an excellent pub with great food and wines. The cottage also comes with a selection of beers and wine which you can purchase (honesty box) which was very thoughtful. The whole cottage is extremely clean, the linens and towels were high quality, pressed and clean. We brought our dog and had a fantastic time hiking in the local area. . We would not hesitate to recommend this to our friends and family and in fact we plan to go back later this year for a second trip

“A gem of a cottage in a delightful village”
Reviewed 8 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We have recently returned from a five night break in Benfield Cottage at Morebattle near Kelso. We had a wonderful time, lots of walks (the village is on St Cuthberts Way) and the locals are so friendly. The fact the village offers a well stocked shop and pub serving food enhanced our experience. The cottage was simply wonderful, everything was so tasteful and John (one of the owners) was there to welcome us and ensure we had all the necessary info. The welcome pack was full of interesting goodies and much appreciated. Already planning our return !!
