It also had a pretty outside area to sit too. Claire and Donald were very friendly hosts. Melrose is a beautiful town and lots to do there and in the surrounding area. You probably need a car.

From the moment I made the first enquiry to the time we left, the owner and her team couldn't have been more helpful. The house is really spacious, spotlessly clean and is equipped with everything you need. Melrose is only a 15 minute walk away, nice shops and friendly pubs and eating places. We will definitely be returning. Highly recommended.
