Immaculate well appointed property

  • 5 of 5

We’ve just returned having stayed for 4 nights, the house was spotless & still felt very roomy despite their being 8 of us. It’s location is ideal for exploring the borders, would definitely recommend.

Spacious, clean and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay over Christmas for a family gathering. The house was very warm and welcoming and had been decorated for Christmas. Large and well equipped kitchen that was perfect for cooking Christmas lunch even down to turkey foil being supplied by the owner. We also arrived to a welcome pack with bucks fizz, tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits and milk in the fridge. Much appreciated after a 7 hour drive. Very peaceful rural location with easy access to Edinburgh and beautiful coastline.
