    We liked the cottage very much, the only problem was the cart track to get to it from the main road. I had hurt my neck some time before and was having treatment for it, but the rough road (which didn't look bad on google earth) made it very painful and just spoilt the holiday, as we had to go up and down it to go out. We wouldn't be going back there as we have been in that area a few times before.

    Was lucky to have this cottage as a replacement as the earlier cottage booked was already taken. We had a lovely time at the cottage & would love to come back & stay here. The location just right & is 40 min drive to Edinburgh and other locations such as Sterling, Jedburgh & few more touristy locations. The owner Caroline was very nice & helpful during our stay. Would recommend to have WiFi installed as this was missing in the property.

    A really warm welcome by the owner, who showed us round the cottage and had a tea tray ready for our arrival. It was a really comfy cottage plenty of light in the kitchen and lounge. It was great being able to walk around the farm. I would definitely plan another stay there.

    we were made very welcome when we arrived. the cottage was clean and had everything we needed in it and more! the location was ideal, very easy access to the Borders, Galloway and Northumbria. Although the main road was near, we couldn't hear it at all. would definitely stay here again.
