Lovely weekend here”

My husband and I stayed in Ploughman's Rest, one of the self-catering cottages on the farm, as we were attending a wedding at the local Peebles Hydro Hotel. The cottage was very cosy, comfortable, fully equipped and spotlessly clean. Jan's husband George showed us all the newborn lambs on the farm, which was lovely. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it to anyone wanting peace and quiet, yet still within easy travelling distance of many attractions. So good I came back with family more than once”

Stayed here a good few years ago with a bunch of mates for mountain biking, I enjoyed it so much I rented a cottage for my family on a visit a few years later and have been back a few more years too.
So good points -
Accommodation is well sized, clean and modern. No complaints on beds, rooms or facilities in the cottage.
Covered parking is available and more importantly lockable bike storage
Bike cleaning facilities are provided
BBQ is available if you wish
Childrens play area
Glentress is a 15 min cycle away and Innerleithen is a short drive away
Peaceful location far enough away from road
Bus stop outside property entrance is a convenient way to get to Edinburgh
I'm really struggling to think of any negatives, the only one that comes to mind is that Peebles is a good 30min walk of less than 5mins by car but this adds to the appeal as it nice to get away from things on holiday.
“Stop looking around and book this place NOW :) You will not regret it!”

We stumbled upon this gem of a location after another property double booked us.
It was meant to be! We needed same day self catering accommodation for 4 nights in early Sept 2012 on our Anniversary. When my wife said its on a farm I though oh no smelly cows and mud etc but nothing could be further from the truth when we went to look before agreeing to stay.
This is very well run by a lovely couple and we were surprised to find everything we needed provided. Nice fresh towels, dishwasher tablets, toilet rolls and cleaning products (Even shower gels and shampoos)
The property is in a beautiful location and fully equipped with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. We didn't get to see the B&B rooms but if the self catering accom is anything to go by you would not be disappointed.
Our trip didn't start off well but once we arrived here we put it all behind us and didn't want to leave.
Stayed September 2012, travelled as a couple

From the Owner
“Comfortable Georgian detached farmhouse with potential to make a lovely guest house and outbuildings to convert into self catering properties. Situated on the outskirts of Peebles close to the essential amenities and on a direct bus route to Edinburgh and the Borders. The farm has enough land to enable us to have sheep and horses. Ample space for our family and holiday guests to share our lovely home.”
