Stable Cottage faces west over the River Teviot to the Minto Crags and Fatlips Castle. The cottage is on one level with three steps leading to the main door. The accommodation includes a living room/dining area, kitchen, a double bedroom and single/twin bedroom and bathroom. The large garden is ideal for sitting out, dining, listening to the birds or just playing games. You are very welcome to enjoy the fields, woods and riverside.
At Menslaws we farm sheep, grow fruit and vegetables in the walled garden and enjoy having guests. Originally I'm from West of Scotland, but have lived in various parts of England. I studied at Edinburgh University and have three, grown up children of whom I am very proud.
We wanted a quiet relaxing week and that is absolutely what we got. The cottage was really cosy and we enjoyed having a real fire - although it took us a little while to get back into dealing with a coal fire. The cottage is perfectly located for visiting all the border towns with only short distances to travel to all of them.
Overall, we had an enjoyable time exploring the area. We visited picturesque towns and the countryside
Our three night stay was to visit and be visited by family members including young children. The cottage provided all the essentials for a short stay. It's location near to the A68 was one of the reasons for booking. The garden provided space for young children to run around, and the peaceful location and comfortable beds allowed the grandparents a good nights sleep. There are a lot of attractions in the Border area within easy driving distance. We visited the Teviot Water Gardens near Kelso which the adults and children enjoyed and it was free!
Just back from a stay here with my partner and 3 children and what a wonderful time we had. Marjorie is a lovely host, showed us around and kindly told us we were welcome to wander round the walled garden and through her land. We loved seeing all the wildlife around and saw rabbits in the garden everyday. Really wish we could have stayed longer.
We really enjoyed our weekend at Stable cottage. Marjorie was helpful in responding to emails and was there to welcome us, both to the cottage and to the fields and woods and the walled garden. We had a great time exploring. The cottage was clean and comfortable, it had everything we needed, including a coal fire for a cold June day! It is so peaceful and quiet, with lots of singing birds and a few rabbits on the lawn in front the cottage. We even saw a fox on our walk. .Stable cottage is a lovely place to stay and we would have been happy to stay longer.
The cottage is well equipped, with beautiful character features. Plenty of books and board games, lovely enclosed garden with gates but our three year old soon opened them.
