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!
