The pictures do not do it justice...great layout, very clean and well maintained and gorgeous location. Ten minute drive to Hawick(grocery stores, gas station, nice museum) and easy drive to Abbeys and other Borders sites. Jane and Norman were delightful hosts. We especially enjoyed walks down the lanes, bird watching(loved the pheasants) and the 11 hole golf course. Recommend highly and hope to return one day.

Kitchen well equipped, bathrooms and showers good. Very quiet and secluded good to have secure offstreet parking.
