Some lovely home-made chocolate muffins were waiting for us when we arrived. The owners were very friendly and made us feel welcome. When we reported that the tumble dryer did not work, they arranged for an electrician to come and it was fixed within 48 hours.
The house is comfortable with plenty of sofas and a good power-shower. The wi-fi internet access was good enough for video streaming. All the household equipment we needed was supplied. We were allowed to turn on the heating for extra hours while we were in the house.
From the three bedrooms there is a wide view of the distant Cheviot hills as well as the closer attractive hills and woodland. The house is a few minutes drive from the a68, so locations in Scotland and Northumberland are easily accessible. It is only a few miles from Jedburgh with its impressive abbey; there are adequate food and souvenir shops there as well as a choice of restaurants. The Jedburgh tourist office is helpful. There are a number of shortish walks in the district where you can climb up for 360 degree views of the Borders region. The house is next to the owners' farm, Bairnkine, which has its own waymarked trails.
Best point about the house: the views from the front. Least good point: only a small rear garden lacking views. Read more

We felt really at home in Owl Cottage. It's very cosy and comfortable. The surrounding countryside is beautiful with stunning views. The hosts Lucy and Matt were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.
