    Great few days at Braehill House, only downside was having to leave. Spacious and well equipped, the pool was definitely a favourite.

    Had a fantastic time celebrating my husband big birthday! We had friends staying Friday & our kids on Saturday. Had a great party on Sunday for extended family & everyone had a ball! Such a lot to do for all age groups. We will be back next year hopefully!

    We loved Braehill House couldn’t fault it at all, owner was very welcoming, helpful and friendly. There were twelve of us and plenty of room in the house for everyone to find their own space, the children and adults loved the games room and pool. The only reason we marked it down on the local amenities was that there are none, but we knew this and it suited us well. Edinburgh is only a short drive to the station and 15 minutes on the train. We had a fabulous family weekend

    Loads of space for everyone, great swimming pool, games room enjoyed by all lovely views, quiet setting. Although rural in easy reach of nice small border towns and Edinburgh. Ideal for groups of all varieties, plenty room for kids but also some quiet escape spots if required.

    This is a beautiful house in a beautiful location. Parts of it were a little tired on closer inspection but this did not detract from our break. The equipment in the games room was a bit disappointing. The bedrooms were all well appointed and the beds were super comfy. The kitchen equipment would have been adequate for 30+ guests.

    Wow this place is great. I surprised my partner for his 30th. Plenty room for 11 people... and we are all thinking about booking to go back for a get together.

    Nice gem just outside of Edinburgh. Great for large groups as rooms were very spacious so never felt crowded. The house is clean and tidy and was a bonus to have a pool and games room. Definitely would stay again and recommend to others.

    I stayed at the Braehill House with 11 friends. We all had a wonderful time. The House is gorgeous. Couple of little things that needed looked at. The toilet plumbing wasn't good. The hot water on the showers went cold at times. Swimming pool needs refurbished which I think is due to happen. But over all we loved it and would definitely go back.

    Everyone enjoyed the holiday. The pool, games room were well used and the children loved the play park and pond. The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable.

    The house was not clean to the expected level. House has a lot of potential but needs a lot of fixing and care. Kitchen was not cleaned properly for long time. Lots of lights are not working. Owner can be more friendly.

    A truly superb house with a hillside location with brilliant views . It is an ideal location to visit Scottish Borders and easy to get in to Edinburgh for a day trip ..shopping,Castle and Royal Yacht Britannia You need a car to get around the area though Peaceful location. Comfortable lounges and a lot of space .The children loved the games room and great indoor Heated Pool. Another excitement for them were the cows , sheep and horses in the field outside the balcony Helpful owner was around to help resolve the inevitable minor problems We all had a great time

    Really nice place, excellent location for relaxing, fantastic games room keeps everyone entertained, great pool and nice wee bbq area, instructions for most things but had problems with the induction cooking hob but there is gas too so no real problem. Very comfortable beds, loved the dining area and really enjoyed sitting out on the deck in the sun. Watching the cows is an entertainment in itself
