Lovely. Clean. Had everything. 10 min walk from village of Melrose. River Tweed just across the road

  • 5 of 5

Lovely bungalow. Everything was spotless. Had everything you could possibly need. Sheelagh had kindly supplied Tea, Coffee, milk and biscuits which was a lovely touch. We didn't meet Sheelagh or Mike. Sheelagh texted regularly to ask if we needed anything but everything was already there! They left us alone to enjoy our holiday and we appreciated that. The house is a 10 minute walk to the centre of Melrose. It's nice and secluded and opposite is a gate which leads to the river Tweed. We honestly couldn't believe how nice it was. After a day of walking it was so nice to come back to. Quiet, peaceful, bliss. We only stayed 4 nights and I wish we could've stayed longer. There are some amazing walks nearby. Can't wait to go back. Thank you Sheelagh for letting us stay.

Lovely place in an ideal situation

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this property were both incredibly helpful and kind.

It is ideally situated, right next to the path alongside the Tweed, allowing quick and easy access both to the centre of Melrose and to the bridge which crosses to Gattonside.

It is also fantastically quiet.

The cottage itself is compact but plenty spacious. A well equipped kitchen, and a lovely big open plan sitting / dining room. We used the sofa bed for one night of our stay and there was ample space even when it was set up.

Thank you both so much for your kindness. I would highly recommend this property.

Homely, clean, great location, welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect stay for us -we were 2 adults and 2 teenagers. We were all comfortable and had a warm welcome from the owners. The house was all very clean and overall good value. The tunnocks teacakes were a lovely treat! Thank you we will probably stay again.
