About Miss Julie Shearer

I grew up 12 miles from Peebles in a small beautiful village. After living in Edinburgh , then Glasgow I returned to my roots, ie. The Scottish Borders. I enjoy the scenic walks with my dog and proximity to Edinburgh, and North Berwick on the east coast. I enjoy the local culture, gardening and growing my own vegetables. I also visit Portugal regularly.

Miss Julie Shearer purchased this apartment in 2003

What makes this apartment unique

Beautiful location , on the banks of the river Tweed. Very comfortable and quiet and has all mod cons to allow you to enjoy a stay in the borders, eating in or out, enjoying the local area and all it has to offer a visitor.

Fantastic location, very nice apartment, great host.

  • 5 of 5

We had absolutely no problems -- the little apartment was exactly as described, and the location couldn't be better. We were able to park on the street right outside, and several restaurants were right up the hill within easy walking distance. Our host responded very quickly to our questions. Highly recommended!

Great situation, boutique accommodation, beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

Compact property, delightful setting, highest quality, in this attractive Borders town. We met the owner right away, who couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating. The cottage was all we wanted and we would definitely recommend it to others and go back again if we were to return to Peebles.
