Peaceful location, within easy walking distance of village. Very comfortable house, well-equipped kitchen. Useful information on surrounding area, attractions and local restaurants. Would highly recommend.

“Perfect bank holiday weekend.”
Reviewed 31 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Just a wonderful experience from start to finish. The communication from booking till arriving was friendly and welcoming. Then on arrival the welcome pack we received was way more than expected and way more than any property I have previously stayed at. I have stayed at a few too.
The wine, coffee, chocolates and tablet all sourced locally except the wine was a great touch. Well done.
We enjoyed the whole experience of a few days roaming and exploring the Borders and this was made more enjoyable having a clean, warm and fully functional home to stay at.

The kitchen had all you needed to create your meals. The lovely relaxing living area with TV etc was great to chill in after a day exploring. With wifi throughout you can keep in touch with all that's happening throughout the world and obviously switch it off if you want peace.
The bed was sooooo comfy we slept really sound and the black out blinds made such a difference especially as it's so bright so early here in the summer. The bathrooms were fully functional and the shower in the ensure was refreshingly powerful.

If you are visiting Melrose or anywhere near by I would heartedly recommend this property.

“Could not fault the accommodation at all”
Reviewed 7 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

There was an extravagant welcome gift left for us and the house was spotless and very cosy and well equipped.
It was in a great location 5 minutes from the town centre and surrounded by walks.

Thanks so much for your lovely words, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and the welcome basket! We couldn't agree more about the property location and with the stunning Melrose abbey across the road it does make for a wonderful setting. Hope to welcome you back in the future, all the best.

“CUSTOMER SERVICE DESERVES 6 STARS!”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed for 4 nights in August and were particularly impressed with the warm communications from Linda (the property manager) prior to our stay and little gifts on arrival - very thoughtful! Although a couple of bits of furniture had seen better days, we had absolutely everything we needed (except for wifi) and everything worked in the way it was intended. We were able to happily cook throughout the 4 days with the array of kitchen utensils on offer. The property smelled clean and fresh and the toilets in particular were spotless . Although the garden area was quite small, there was a huge playing field on the other side of the garden gate for us to play with our young children - we could play cricket and ball games without any fear of breaking windows or disturbing any neighbours. We were fortunate to have good weather (ie without rain!) and went on a few walks around Melrose and the nearby river. As an example of attention to detail, I was most grateful to receive our daughter's pjs in the post after they had inadvertently become tangled up in her bedding and left at the property after we had vacated. We were contacted by Linda and she promised to send them to us - they duly arrived, freshly laundered, with a little pack of tablet (very tasty!) ... we would definitely book again.

“Stupendous Stay”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is our third visit to this house (we are first entry into visitors book), we said then we would be back and we continue to do so. The house is perfect for our needs, 3 generations together, comfortable and spacious house and the downstairs loo a bonus for my elderly parents ! The location is perfect for visiting the area, beautiful walks close by, a day trip to Edinburgh and Melrose itself is just perfect. The agent was most helpful throughout the process and kept us advised when I asked questions. Already booked for next year, can't wait to return.
