“A hidden gem in the foothills of Peebles. Fabulous accommodation!”

I spent a weekend at Tantah Croft this summer with friends. Seeing the scenery on the drive through Peebles and up the driveway to Tantah Croft, I knew we would be in for a treat. On arrival, we were presented with a modern wood cabin conversion, with all the charm and mod cons we could have hoped for.

There was sufficient space for nine of us - three double bedrooms, and fold-out couches in the lounge area. There are two bathrooms (one has a bath) and an open-plan kitchen (fully equipped) and dining area, complete with flat screen TV and wifi.

The outside surroundings of Tantah Croft (you have access to small private garden and patio with a bbq, table and chairs, which we took full advantage of during a rare weekend of glorious Scottish sun) are picturesque. The rear of the property opens up onto a garden and a large orchard, with access to walking trails up the hills beyond the perimeter of the property.

Tantah Croft is a walk or short drive from Peebles town centre and several parks - great for children, great for a man-child looking for space to kick a football and trhow a frisbee with his friends. The local fish and chip shops serve up great food, and the pubs on the river Tweed are great for an evening drink.

The Cashins were the most lovely and welcoming hosts. They even offered us fresh eggs for breakfast from the chicken coop in their garden! This certainly won't be my only visit to Tantah Croft. For a calm, peaceful and relaxing retreat, I highly recommend checking it out.

Liked best: Everything was high standard.
Liked least: The mosquitoes outside at night! Bring bug repellent if visiting during the summer and you'll be fine.

Stayed with another family over a weekend. its a mile from the lovely Borders town of Peebles. Mike and Les offer a unique break with Tantah Croft which they built themselves and is designed to be eco friendly. There is a lot of innovative design that has gone into it but more than that is the homestay style welcome you get from Mike and Les. He sent over amazing freshly baked bread on two days, along with garden vegetables which we made into soup. The accomodation is spacious enough for two families with all amenities including Sky. Best of all, the back garden leads into some of the best gentle walks (the kids didnt complain much) including the John Buchan Way that offers incredible views of the Tweed Valley.
