“Classy self-catering accomodation in a lovely spot.”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Great location in the lovely Scottish Borders. Ideal for outdoor pursuits, a base for exploring the south of Scotland or Edinburgh. Only slight moan; the central heating pipes are noisy ;-)

“Superb house with every comfort in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

With mobility problems, I had rejected many other properties advertised because of the difficulty of access. The Old Smithy is a real gem! There is one tiny step at the front door which is no problem even for a wheelchair. The house is a sympathetic reconstruction and extension of the original smithy,and is beautifully furnished. The bright open-plan kitchen has an American-style fridge/freezer and the cooker has six burners - not that we were inclined to put them all to use! The adjacent sitting area has two comfortable sofas and French windows which look out over the garden to the fields beyond. The beds are all extremely comfortable, and the shower in the en suite in the bedroom with a king-size bed is virtually walk-in. The grassed area in front of the house is furnished with a substantial table and benches and, again, is very easily accessed.
I am confident to recommend The Old Smithy as a delightful base from which to explore the many and varied attractions of the beautiful Borders area.
