The accommodation is second to none with all the small additional items you would not bring but could really do with being in the cottage. The views are stunning. The walks around the farm fantastic. A warm friendly welcome from the Warwick,s. The enclosed garden was brilliant for our Labrador. All in all a fantastic stay and just as good if not better than we thought from the description. We would definitely consider seriously about returning for another visit.

Quiet location and parking not a problem - always available within a few tens of metres. We particularly liked looking out onto the Cuddy burn and watching the ducks & ducklings. 3 minute walk to Peebles High Street.
