"Home comfort in a great location for walks in town and country"
This is a sweet little apartment with all the amenities and in a lovely setting. The cows used to come to the window to say hello every morning! It is also within walking distance of the delightful town of Peebles with its great selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. The only down side was having neighbours clomping about above but luckily they only stayed a couple of nights.
Thank you for your positive comments. The noise was due a visitor in the neighbouring property convalescing from a foot operation and she was in a heavy boot plaster with crutches. I did not think about the potential noise this would have caused, I hope you understand and accept my apologies. Ruth
