Friendly welcome by the owner on our arrival. Complimentary bottle of wine provided. Not intrusive during our stay but we were advised who best to contact if there were any problems, location of doctors etc and good pubs and restaurants. The property itself was very clean and provided everything necessary to make our stay comfortable. Somewhat isolated but that suited us as we wanted a peaceful location and there was a long quiet lane across the main road which was perfect for walking the dog off its lead. Surrounding towns were easily accessed by car and we took the opportunity to tour about. We liked the peace and quiet best.
Great quiet location - with noisy floorboards!

This is a lovely cottage situated in the grounds of an old courtyard. It's really lovely and quiet, and it provides easy access to the coast both in Scotland and England.
There's some lovely quiet roads around, and an amazing pub in nearby Paxton.
The only slight issue I had with the place was the noisy floorboards. If you needed to get up to the loo in the night it was impossible not to awaken the other half ;-)
very nice break

the cottage was perfect for our break in the borders. the home made bread and wine which was left for us was very welcome and much enjoyed. the area was better than we anticipated and would certainly come back here. it was ideal for our dog as well. really enjoyed this break.

The cottage and grounds are lovely and Liz the owner is so friendly and helpful we had a great time despite it being rainy. The area has so much to offer walks on the numerous beaches all within a 20 minute drive, golf, shops, castles so much to see and the scenery amazing. Our little dog loved wandering around the grounds and also the beaches. A wonderful time and hope to go back soon. Would recommend to anyone.
