Also included milk, bread, crisps and lots of different teas. The cottage is clean and cosy. No cheating on quality., everything was put in with care. King size comfy bed with high quality bedding. The wood burner in the lounge was fabulous..given we had a few minus zero evenings/nights. Lots of walks on your doorstep and our collie enjoyed just snuffling about to his heart's content. Took the opportunity of doing all the walks recommended by the owner. No need to move your car for good walks, Reasonable Internet but limited to no mobile signal in the cottage. That was perfect...no one could get hold of me from work! Kelso is about 8 minutes drive away and there are shops to stock up. So no need to bring lots of supplies. I would certainly return for a period of relaxation...great for stress busting.

It was all very clean and well-maintained. Rob was very helpful and pointed out some good walks and pubs nearby. There were some great sights and things to do nearby, and it was in a really nice location. We had a wonderful time.
