"Practical, peaceful and perfect!"
Tweed Rig is an extremely well-equipped house. We were not short of anything. The house is comfortable, spacious and very pleasantly decorated. On arrival we found our accommodation to be clean and tidy. The location was great, very quiet and within easy walking distance to the village and a slightly further, but enjoyable walk, takes you right into Melrose.
A super property for a lovely family holiday!
