Its a great place to stay in. tucked away in the quite and scenic route to Edinburgh.
We reached there during Christmas time in the peak of the snow period, but the stay was amazing. Denise had taken care of all the details. The cottage is very well maintained.
It is relative close to Edinburgh and most other tourist places.
We would definitely be returning int he summer to experience the sunnier side of Scotland
Very clean, lovely little extras and generally pleasant stay in a lovely part of the world. Wish we had taken our road bikes as the roads were perfect for cycling.
This apartment is really quite special . Very peaceful location. It was spotlessly clean and lots of nice little extra touches. We were very warmly welcomed by Denise and the hospitality tray was greatly appreciated. My grandson loved the football table and table tennis . The apartment was warm and cosy and the log burner was great too. Kitchen is very well equipped . The beds were very comfortable and the bedding is of excellent quality. I would strongly recommend this fantastic apartment to anyone looking for somewhere special for a break.
A well maintained property away from the busy hustle by river Tweed. Beautifully maimed property. Ideal for people who are looking for a calm and quiet break. Thanks to the owner and their hospitality who made us comfortable throughout the stay.
This property is definitely a hidden gem. We had a fantastic time with our 2 children. The apartment is huge and very well maintained. It is a home away from home. Denise and Jim certainly went above and beyond to ensure that we had provisions from the moment we arrived. The bread, coffee, tea, milk, cereals, jam etc were very welcomed by us all. The apartment is a perfect base to explore Scotland and the surrounding area is stunningly beautiful. We would definitely return.
The apartment is very nice and comfortable in a beautiful location. We have a 7 year old son and Merlindale is definitely suitable for children. A very peaceful area but lots of things to do nearby. We can recommend Dawyck Gardens & Traquair House.
