Good cottage
Jul 2017

Very good cottage, well equipped. A little farther to walk into Melrose than I had anticipated but not a problem. We enjoyed our stay.

Reviewed 18 Jul 2017

Owner's reply:
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate all positive and helpful comments. The walk into Melrose is very beautiful and often we are delayed looking at the River Tweed, so it always takes longer than we think too.
