About Janice Haydock

My name is Jan Haydock , I have been in the tourism business for many years and run our small business now as a family concern.

We have a small farm with a Guest house and 2 self catering cottages.

High standard of care and attention to detail is priority to me.

I aim to make everyone's stay with us a pleasure - home from home !

Janice Haydock purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Janice Haydock chose Peebles

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.

What makes this cottage unique

We are in the country but only 5 minutes drive to Peebles town centre or a pleasant walk.

30 minutes takes us to Edinburgh or the Borders.
