Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A spacious cottage in a quiet and pretty location. The cottage interior is very traditional, it was clean and had everything you would want and need. Make sure you take around £15 in £1 coins for the electric meter! The location of the cottage is ideal to explore the surrounding area, Dryburgh Abbey is around a two mile walk. Close by is Floors Castle and Abbotsford. Overall and enjoyable holiday. Aug 2011.
  2. Who do not expect a modern accommodation but instead a more country house style, will be very happy with this house. It’s a great accommodation for families with children. Our children loved the animals. June 2011.
  3. Large house in secluded setting. Good access to local walks including the river Tweed. Part of larger estate which has a donkey sanctuary. The owner is always on hand and is very helpful and friendly. Sept 2010.
  4. Splendid location. Aug 2010.
  5. Our kids loved staying on the donkey farm, they were allowed to feed them and they got a ride on the Shetland pony. The owner was very warm and accommodating with the kids, perfect location next to the river Tweed, which was so peaceful and picturesque. Our kids want to know when can we go back. May 2010.
  6. Very well equipped. The quality of the furnishings was higher than other holiday cottages we have previously stayed in. Nov 2009.
  7. Plenty of space. Oct 2009.
  8. Main bedroom had a four poster bed and tv. Two bathrooms. Short walk to river. Oct 2009.
  9. Excellent property, very well equipped. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. Don’t miss the donkey feeding at 2pm Saturday and Sunday - my children loved it! Nov 2008.
