"Super cottage in an amazing location"
Myself and my daughter have stayed at Granary cottage on 3 separate occasions - each time we've had a super holiday. The cottage is in an amazing location, the facilities are excellent with little extras like home-baked scones, fruit and a carton of milk supplied too! The rental cost is very good value for money, and I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to explore the borders. We are definitely going to plan a fourth holiday at Granary cottage.

These cottages are both lovely with fantastic views of Minto hill. The location is good for walking and not too far to walk to the nearest pub. The owners are a nice couple and very helpful. We loved it so much we have already booked to go back for our anniversary.
