Lovely and clean. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful few days in Borders. This property is in a great location for walking or touring. Also handy for train to Edinburgh. Quiet location and easy walk into lovely Melrose.

Just one idea for future - need a good light for reading!

Comfortable and clean

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was spacious and comfortable. And tea/coffee/milk/biscuits were there to greet us - a welcome touch after a long journey.

We enjoyed our 4 nights in Melrose. The property is ideally placed for trips in the borders or a little further afield to Edinburgh or Northumberland.

Lovely cottage, wish we were able to stay longer!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend in Alwyn and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is very spacious, with a comfortable and cosy feel to it. It was well equipped and very clean, and it was lovely to find on arrival a welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, etc. There is a lovely garden surrounding the property, which our dog loved to explore. You are right next to the River Tweed, so we enjoyed walks into Melrose and Gattonside, across the bridge. There is no shortage of places to eat and drink in Melrose, most of which allowed dogs. All in all, we wish we could have stayed longer, and hope to return in the future - thank you very much Sheelagh!

Alwyn Bungalow Melrose

  • 4 of 5

Great location with easy 10 minute walk in to Melrose and riverside walks accessible just outside gate.

Off street parking for car on drive, peaceful access road.

Clean, warm comfortable & quiet enclosed garden for kids or dog to play in.

Bungalow was well equipped, bright & welcoming.

We would visit Alwyn bungalow again & recommend it to others.

Superb property in idyllic surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Had a superb long weekend at this property. The property was clean, comfortable and so close to Melrose and the Tweed that we didn't need to use the car all weekend.

The property is situated in a quiet location which was a must for us! Sheelagh and Mike we're very helpful, and we hope to return soon.
