We felt welcomed by the owners and pampered in the extremely well equipped and beautifully furnished house. It was very warm even on a cold November weekend. Just perfect.

The cottage is very spacious inside and plenty of room for four people of any age. The welcome pack was the most generous we've ever had. The cottege is very well decorated and furnished and really has everything you could want and was lovely and warm. The lounge is very comfortable and has a great range of CDs, DVDs and an impressive bookcase with some very interesting reading on local places, walks, fiction and a number of book on Scottish history. Kitchen/dining room is a good pace for meals and has all the plates, pans, glasses you will need, even a range of cookery books. The bedrooms are equally well decorated, with comfortable beds and plenty of wardrobe space. An extra loo upstairs is welcome too. We didn't use the garden but it would be useful in the summer. The area is very quiet and the neighbours very friendly. A walk into Melrose takes about 15 minutes. You can also access a number of walks direct and details in books in the bookcase. A most relaxing holiday and we will certainly come again.
