"Large Holiday House"

We had an excellent family reunion in a house which was like a home from home. Sarah provided the little personal touches which made our annual get-together the success it was. The well kept large garden provided the play area for the children of all ages and after the party were peaceful for relaxing in. The surroundings were rural but beautiful and just the setting for the holiday we were looking for.

You were a wonderfully well organised family, so that with a piper and a great meal, your celebration obviously was a great success in the house and in the garden!

"Perfect family weekend"

A lovely spacious home with stunning grounds. We celebrated my mum and dads 50th wedding anniversary here and we could not have found a better location. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed and more and the house itself had lots of room for the family to relax.

Many thanks

Thanks for your kind words, great news that celebration went well. will send the charger you left but could not locate to kitchen tongs today.

""Relaxing break in a fabulous big house!""

Visited with a group of friends and 4 dogs.
Emails from the owner very friendly and helpful.
Large well contained house, very homely with a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of wood/coal for the fire! Garden great for boisterous dogs!
We didn't travel far as too relaxed in the house and garden!
I would definitely recommend this house if looking for a relaxing break (especially as the beds were SO comfortable!!)

Lovely to read - please do return to enjoy the area again!

Thank you for your comments - am surprised at the tepid water - perhaps the timer was at the wrong time? - you can check and alter this as a guest.
Thanks for mattress tip - that will be replaced this week!
Also surprised at cleaning as we go to great trouble there. Will chase up team.
Yes, I will work on preparing a House History as it is interesting!

"The Border Experience"

A note to let others know what a beautiful family orientated home that Glebe House is. It sits on the edge of a beautiful garden surrounded by small river which the children and the dogs thoroughly enjoyed. House accommodated 10 of us with ease and it felt like a home from home. Would be happy to recommend. Kelso well worth a vist

We love it too - so it is special to know that you have appreciated its ambiance.
