Great holiday location

5 of 5
We had a lovely stay at this peaceful cottage, it was very cosy and well appointed. Very large enclosed garden which was great for our dog, it also has a cute little summer house which must be perfect for sitting out in warm weather. We enjoyed walking into Melrose, a 10/20 minute walk depending on your speed! The owner was really easy to communicate with and very helpful.
