Lovely cottage. Warm, cosy, immaculate. Loved the bathroom. Car parking in the street just outside. The cottage is a 20 minute walk from Melrose and we walked into town along the Tweed riverbank and then back along the road. Interesting walks nearby. Only downsides - the ceiling height in the bedrooms is low and you really need a car as there are no shops or pubs in Newstead. For a quiet break in the Scottish Borders, this cottage is really good value for money. We would definitely go back.
The Smiddy was THE best holiday rental we have ever had. Scotland in November? Inclement weather but a lovely stay. The walk into Gattonside Village and on to Melrose was lovely via the Chain Bridge.
The cottage was extremely well presented with everything we needed. The views were stunning and constantly changing. We arose in the morning with the sheep, who slept in the field at the bottom of our garden; so, so comforting. We have already booked our next stay. Best accolade ever.
