“Unbelievable amount of space”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We really enjoyed our short stay ay the Bothy. Amazing to have 3 rooms plus a shower room.
All in all , very comfortable and the breakfasts were excellent.
Only slight niggle was no place to hang clothes. As we were only staying 2 nights it wasn't a problem.
Lovely area with some beautiful walks.

“Up-market B&B”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The "Bothy" is a few miles south of Kelso - quiet location.
We were very pleasantly surprised - very spacious, warm, comfortable, and homely - easy living. The breakfasts were lovely, (particularly the sausages!), always served with a smile by the delightful and helpful hostess, Ashley.
Thank You

“Great value winter getaway”
Reviewed 3 March 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights in late January, a lot bigger than expected. Friendly, welcoming hosts, ensured log burner was roaring on arrival. Knowledgeable of local area and helpful in pointing places to eat and visit. Comfy, relaxed surroundings, great for a quiet weekend away to recharge. Great value for money.
