Our second stay at this cottage. We knew we would get a warm welcome and be very comfortable.

The cottage was very comfartable and made us feel cosy and warm even though there was snow outside.

This is a fantastic cottage! Tastefully furnished, well equipped and very comfortable. Whilst it may be next to a working sheep farm, it was very peaceful and we were never disturbed by farm machinery or animals. A quiet country location but very central for touring the Borders area, East Coast, Northumberland and in particular Edinburgh. The nearest park and ride facility was a mere 15 minutes away by car and what a great city to visit! We are planning to stay at this property again and would highly recommend.

This cottage was excellent in tranquil surroundings, although only 20 minutes drive from Edinburgh and within reach of many interesting locations.

A lovely place to stay, the accommodation was great and the owners were very kind letting us see their sheep and young lambs. I would recommend this cottage to anyone.

Cleanliness, huge amount of space. Wood burner that was so efficient. Presentation on arrival, attention to detail, leaving milk and tea was very welcome. Lots of character, good finish.

Myself and my friend were impressed by our welcome and our accommodation. I can truthfully say that you could liken the accommodation to that of a five star hotel. The owners were very helpful and pleasant.

Property built and presented to a high standard. Owners who live on site were extremely friendly and helpful. Will go back again.
