“Ideal New Year Cottage”
Reviewed 17 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This was our second New Year stay at Babingtons and both have been lovely.
It poured down most of the time but it didn't matter as 7 of us were warm, dry and comfortable in Babingtons. Four bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 lounges meant there was plenty of room to gather together and plenty of room to have some quiet space when wanted.
Both kitchen and dining room are brilliant and we enjoyed plenty of nice meals in followed by chats, games or music in front of the log fires.
We had a special treat on New Years Eve - our only clear night of the week - but what a night - we travelled to Lindisfarne and were blessed to see the Northern Lights dancing above us - it doesn't get much better than that.!
Babingtons has a lovely homely feel - a credit to the owner and all involved in its maintenance! - thankyou!

I am so pleased you have had a second lovely New Year's break at Babingtons Cottage. It is an ideal cottage for family and friends to get together. I am really envious that you experienced the Northern Lights too.

“Perfect cottage for large family group with beautiful views”
Reviewed 14 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We loved our weeks stay at Babington Cottage with extended family group, 6 adults and 3 children. We hired the whole cottage with extra rooms, lounge and bathroom which meant the youngsters could have their own space separate from the adults.The cottage was very well equipped and had everything you could think of, a home away from home. It was clean and tidy and very comfortable. The owner, Maggie, was easy to contact and quick to reply to any queries we had. She kindly posted back some items I had left there without any hesitation.

The location was beautiful , views from the cottage looked across rolling hills and the constant changing skies. There are some lovely gardens nearby, Hirsel Country Park but most things need to car to get to ( or a bike). Coldstream is the closest town and has a good Co-op, Post Office and a lovely small art gallery. The coast is about 40min drive but worth it as there is so much to see and do, castles, beaches, bird watching, boat trips......

“A wonderful, peaceful place to stay, equipped with all you could need”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Nine of us in all stayed in Babington's Cottage, six adults and 3 young children. There was plenty of room for the girls to play their games in the far lounge whilst the adults could relax in their own! Three excellent bathrooms with good showers, a dining room in which we could all sit, and a very well equipped kitchen. There were even fires with logs and coal provided if needed. It was just perfect for us. Wifi was also available. The views from rooms were stunning. We were able to sit out in the back garden in the evening sunshine and enjoy the views.

We all took bikes and were able to have some wonderful rides together away from main roads. The cottage is only 2 miles from Coldstream where there was a big Co-op and also there were good eating out places within easy reach.

Maggie and Pauline could not have been more helpful and accommodating. There was a fast response to any queries when booking too. A fabulous place to stay!

It's great to hear that you and the family had a good holiday at Babingtons Cottage. Yes, having 2 lounges is ideal and offers the younger generation their own space. The tranquility and views from the cottage and garden goes a long way to offer a relaxing holiday. I'm pleased all went well.

“Beautifully maintained cottage in stunning location”
Reviewed 10 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This was the second time I have stayed at Babingtons and it fails to disappoint every time. Just 10 minutes outside Coldstream, with stunning views over the beautiful garden and out towards the Tweed, it is such a conveniently located yet peaceful place to unwind.
The owner has obviously taken great care and attention to provide guests with everything they could possibly need in the cottage, whatever the weather, and advice on local things to do and amenities. A great base for exploring the local countryside - fishing, golf, historical houses or just long country walks followed by a pub lunch!
I would highly recommend Babingtons Cottage to both couples and groups alike - and I look forward to returning next time I am up in the Borders.

“Lovely cottage in lovely place”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Eight of us, family and friends spent a week in this lovely cottage. Very comfortable and cosy once the fires are lit and the heating is running. Well equipped and in a great location just 10 minutes from the river Tweed. Also some good places to eat within a few minutes drive. Would go back.
