Weekend Country Retreat
Wonderful apartment on the ground floor of Merlindale House surrounded by beautiful grounds in the countryside between Broughton & Peebles. Very clean, comfortable & well appointed accommodation with your every need catered for. Plenty information on the area for nearby walks, history & places of interest. Books, DVD's, CD's & games including table tennis & table football. A welcome pack with freshly baked bread, butter, eggs, milk, jams and biscuits as well as tea and coffee was a lovely touch. Very spacious hall & rooms with plenty of space for a family with 2 or 3 children. Cannot recommend this accommodation or the communication/welcome from Denise enough & look forward to returning.
Located in a very quiet rural area. very clean, spacious and comfortable accommodation. Great for a short break and within easy driving distance of Edinburgh.
So pleased you enjoyed your break.
We enjoyed four nights at the apartment in April. We walked from the door on the banks of the Tweed, to the botanical gardens at Dawyck and to the magical atmospheric ruins of Tinnis castle. The accommodation was comfortable, spacious and well equipped and the grounds were delightful.
So pleased your family enjoyed their stay.
A very comfortable stay in the Borders
We spent 3 nights in the apartment which was excellent, very clean & comfortable. We were given a very warm welcome & having a range of groceries to start us off was great!
The apartment was very spacious and well-appointed, and the log burner in the main sitting room was lovely.
The beds were comfortable and having a bathroom & a shower room was ideal for our group.
The grounds round the house are beautiful with some very tall trees!
We were given recommendations as to visits that were within easy reach of Merlindale and had a great time visiting Peebles, Melrose, & Jedburgh.
We would definitely recommend Merlindale as a great place as a base for a holiday in the Borders.
We are so pleased that our visitors had such a good time.
Homely house in quiet surroundings
We had a great stay in the mansion house flat. We found everything we needed in the cosy and tastefully decorated holiday let. This included ample suggestions for things to do, fire logs and games. Friendly owners and a phantastic setting of the house in its own park. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
Really pleased that our visitors enjoyed themselves.
Excellent, welcoming and comfortable stay. Well placed for for sightseeing.
Ideal for a quiet holiday in The Borders. Well equipped house and welcoming owners. We spent two days exploring locally - St. Mary's Loch and the towns of Peebles, Selkirk and Kelso. An enjoyable visit to Floors Castle and gardens and a stop at Melrose Abbey were on the itinerary. These were planned before we arrived but a lot of information is provided at Merlindale if you come less prepared. We travelled to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs and took in Edinburgh which was very lively due to the Edinburgh Festival. A shopkeeper in Selkirk told us about the 'Great Polish Map of Scotland' so we made a point of visiting the site. A very interesting story and project. At the end of each day Merlindale was a restful place to come home to.
So pleased that our visitors enjoyed their stay.
