"Delightful cottage, perfect for a relaxing, romantic getaway"

Ferniehaugh is a stunning little cottage, beautifully decorated and furnished with every modern comfort you could want. We enjoyed a relaxing week here and didn't want to leave! The log burning s… More

I am so pleased you enjoyed it. Ferniehaugh is a bit of a home from home I think - a friendly, comfy place to relax in. And as this was your first trip to Scotland I'm especially pleased that it was such a success. It was great that you got to know your way about locally in Biggar (the curry! the olives! the books!) as well as enjoying outings to Edinburgh and Glasgow. Thank you also for your present of the visitors book and your lovely comments in it. Don't forget there's still plenty more to see and do - eg the beach at Gullane, the wonderful gardens at Dawyck, Kailzie and Traquair House - and we hope very much to see you back again soon!

"The best of the best"

The wee house in Biggar is as good as it gets - excellent facilities - very clean - very comfortable bed - all the accessories you could want with a very well appointed kitchen and comfortable front room to enhance anyone's stay
Local parking with all shops within a 5 minute walk and plenty of eating places.

All of this with an extremely helpful owner in Hilary

This accommodation is excellently placed as most of the Borders you wish to visit are within a 30 mile radius and Glasgow & Edinburgh within easy reach

We will certainly return

Thank you so much for your lovely review and we are really delighted that you enjoyed it so much. As you are the first ever guests to stay at the house, it is really important to know that we have got it right. I'm especially pleased you enjoyed the bed - it's such a major factor in the success of a stay away from home! We hope very much u will be back soon and look forward to seeing you next time!
