Wonderful property with stunning views outside and perfect accommodation inside

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated Mum's 80th as a family of 10. We felt welcomed by the owners and pampered in the extremely well equipped and beautifully furnished house. It was very warm even on a cold November weekend. Just perfect.

Beautiful house in stunning countryside

  • 5 of 5

This house certainly has the wow factor. Every room is beautifully decorated in a tasteful style, in keeping with the age of the house but with a nod to the contemporary. The drawing room is ideal for family get togethers around a log fire but there is also a snug for watching tv or quieter times. The dining room would easily seat 14. The kitchen is modern and well equipped and has an island you can sit around. All of the bedrooms are well decorated and have comfortable beds. The hall and staircase are truly imposing.

In addition to this, the house is set in lovely countryside, which was particularly beautiful with all the autumn colours. You can walk from the house almost straight onto the Bowhill Estate, so you can stay away from busy roads. The stunning St Mary's Loch is a short drive away. There are many other places of interest within reasonable reach.

All in all, I would recommend Broadmeadows to any group of family or friends looking for a luxurious place to stay in the lovely Scottish Borders.

One of the best vacations of our lives!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a perfect shape !! Very impressive ! The decoration and every simple detail around the house is unbelievable!! The kitchen is so perfectly equiped and has such a great area that we spent unforgettable family dinners there. The barbecue in the garden was great, as well as the crocket game

Cleanliness excelent, the beds so comfortable, bedrooms and bathrooms very spacious .

I highly recomemd this property for family trips; Dianne hosted us so nice and helpful; the house is just 1 hour from Edinburgh, and very close to places like Jedburgh and Melrose Abbeys what makes the trip complete.

Car enthusiasts weeekend driving break

  • 5 of 5

The property is more impressive upon arrival. We received a warm welcome from Dianne and had a quick tour of the Big Hoose. There were 8 of us and the hoose accomodated us perfectly. The rooms were well appointed and the dining room ideal for evening meals together. We had everything we needed for the stay; the snooker table gave us hours of enjoyment too. We had the essentials, like nice soaps, washing utensils and all towels and linen were of good quality. We have been to places where there isn't even a bar of soap. The property is ideally situated to head to Edinburgh or nearby towns, like Moffett, Peebles and Selkirk. For us these roads were stunning to drive, quiet and with great views.

We will return in time as we have been to the borders twice for a driving break and the big hoose was clearly the most grand. Photos of the cars in front of the mansion look stunning!

Thanks once again Dianne.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Such a magnificently beautiful property and surroundings. Peaceful and spacious. Dianne is a wonderful owner. Plenty to do in the local area, and we love the snooker table! Can't wait to get back with my family on Monday. Looking forward to using the snug which has just opened!
