“Fantastic cottage a real home from home”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed two nights at Bow Cottage which is a lovely holiday home. So many personal touches from the owners makes you feel so welcome and the place just feels so homely nothing was any bother. The cottage is in a great area just off the high street and a two min walk to the lovely Abbey you really can just park the car and just walk to everything! Cottage was warm with the heating on for us arriving with the lovely touch of cake for arrival so you could have cake and tea/coffee before unpacking or getting some shopping!! Cant thank the owners enough for all the extras that made the stay even more special. We would definitely go back to Bow Cottage and have already recommended it to family and friends!

“An excellent choice”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Had an overnight stay at Bow Cottage. Everything from booking the cottage to our stay was excellent. There was no hassle involved at all. Louise could not have been more helpful between the booking and when we arrived. The instructions for finding cottage and entry were easily understood. The cottage met our needs very well, all the amenities we required were there. Louise had also left a few things for us on arrival which was a very nice touch and appreciated. My partner was very impressed, and it takes a lot to impress her. Would have no hesitation, if down that way again, in booking this cottage.

“Nice cottage”
Reviewed 11 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We spent a week in Bow cottage, it's a lovely house with two bedroom, and a nice kitchen. We was very glad about the shower with monoblock mixer(?) insteed of a bathtub. The cottage is right next to the Melrose abbey,
Only what I missed was a coffee brewer.
