    We thoroughly enjoyed spending new year in this lovely, cosy & comfortable cottage. The heating was on for our arrival & there was a very generous welcome pack which was gratefully received. The cottage is in a beautiful setting within a lovely estate with a coffee shop on site which is open 7 days a week. Coldstream is approx a 20 minute easy walk away. Would love to return again & can highly recommend. Only very slight negative was the tv was a bit too small with poor sound quality.

    Thoroughly enjoyed staying at this lovely cottage for 4 nights. Everything you could need is provided including logs for the woodburner. There were supplies of tea/coffee/sugar/milk, bread, butter and even some lovely chocolate biscuits and a pot of jam. Its all beautifully furnished and decorated. The bed is super king sized and the only thing we didn't like about it was the plastic mattress protector, we found it noisy and rather hot to sleep on.

    Enjoyed our time visiting local castles and walking. The wild life on the lake are interesting to watch. It helps having a nice tea room 20paces away if you don't fell like cooking.

    A wee gem of a cottage. The cottage is lovely and modern, and quirky too, being in the round. You get a nice secluded garden and lovely walking areas too. All amenities are well done, and the quality of the oak furniture is above standard. The only (very slight) comment is that the bed could've been a little more comfy for me. In saying that, being a 2-single zip bed, it was refreshingly enormous. We must thank our hosts for the welcome pack, it was well received, and for the quick help when the boiler pressure dropped. Good, fast help! All-in-all, good value for money and I would love to return in the future.
