Beautiful home and a magical trip!!

  • 5 of 5

When me and my university friends decided to book a trip we were really excited looking into Tweed Rig! The photos on the website looked beautiful and the price was totally reasonable! In fact when we first believed we would not be able to afford the home Debbie was lovely enough to offer us a reduced rate! She was always very speedy with responses and super helpful, couldn't have asked for a better host. When we got to the house the place was spotless and the pictures don't do it justice, the view was incredible from the balcony and we enjoyed a lovely BBQ on our first evening. Since we had 16 of us, Debbie put out spare beds and those were very comfortable for fold-outs! We all really enjoyed our stay at Tweed Rig and would definitely look into revisiting next summer, if you're looking for a beautiful home in a stunning landscape then this is definitely the place for you!

Beautiful house and spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

Great house, really well stocked, beautifully laid out with lots of bathrooms (great for lots of ladies getting ready!) and a fantastic living space - huge dining table, big kitchen and ample space in the lounge for us all. Balcony was an absolute sun trap most of the day, perfect for brekkie right through to an evening BBQ. Perfect hen house with loads of suggestions available from the host. Would definitely recommend for other hens!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the excellent review. The balcony is one of the best features of the house. We recently added a new spacious bathroom downstairs which makes it very conveniant for larger groups. J

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

I booked Tweed Rig for a family weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday and retirement. the house was amazing - well equipped and beautifully furnished with amazing views over the surrounding countryside. The only downside was the last 100 metres of the approach track which was a bit steep and rough.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time in writing the review. We are so glad you were able to enjoy the house and that it was well equiped for all your needs. Unfortunately the rain can damage the last stretch of road up the hill...we do our best to keep in a fair condition. Hopefully the beautiful views Tweed Rig offers made up for it ;)

Hilltop Heaven

  • 4 of 5

This spacious, well appointed house suited our needs perfectly. The view over Gattonside, across the Tweed and on to Melrose and the Eildons was breathtaking. Surrounded by trees, just coming into leaf and birds full of Spring song, it was a wonderful 3 days. Plenty of walks, many games of table tennis and delicious food in Melrose and Gattonside. Thank you.

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a wonderful four night stay over Easter 2017 at Tweed Rig (we travelled there from Hull, Yorkshire) - 12 adults, 3 children and 3 dogs. From the moment I made the first enquiry to the time we left, the owner and her team couldn't have been more helpful. The house is really spacious, spotlessly clean and is equipped with everything you need. Melrose is only a 15 minute walk away, nice shops and friendly pubs and eating places. We will definitely be returning. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the kind comments. The short walk down to Melrose over the bridge is very enjoyable indeed. We do our best to equip the house as best possible so our guests have everything they need. Hope you enjoyed the lovely views from the balcony. Looking forward to having you back at Tweed Rig.

Wonderful situation on hill above Gattonside

  • 5 of 5

Attractive, modern and very spacious property with extensive and comfortable living/dining area with kitchen at one end which was well-equipped with plenty of cutlery, dishes and utensils for our party of 10. Plenty of space in the fridge/freezer, modern cooker and dishwasher.

Rooms and bathrooms all nicely decorated and furnished and all very clean. Plenty of towels and bedding. We felt that much thought had been put into the possible requirements of a large number of guests and there was plenty to entertain the younger members of our group.

We all enjoyed sitting out on the balcony which runs the entire length of the house and has plenty of seating. The views across the Tweed Valley are magnificent.

We all agreed a return visit was definitely necessary!

There are good places to eat within walking distance such as The Hoebridge Inn in Gattonside and not far from facilities in Melrose. Many great walks close by.
