“Welcoming pet friendly cottage”
A peaceful pet friendly cottage, ideally located just off the A7. Within easy reach of all Scottish border towns. Owner was most pleasant and friendly and Barney (Dog) well was just Barney. Went up hill on fabulous walk with our two dogs (Mia and Macey) and came back with three(Hello Barney). Loved it!!!!!. Plenty of walks from the cottage long or short whatever you prefer. The cottage itself was very clean and comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As the garden is wrap around you can have breakfast on one patio and afternoon tea and evening drinks on another whilst listening to sheep over the valley. Loved the break from start to finish and would have no hesitation to return - awaiting leave confirmation at work to re-book. Thank you all.

“A Gem of a find...........”
Wonderful views greet you on arrival at this well equipped, clean cottage. The WiFi is a bonus. The host are very welcoming and friendly. The large enclosed garden was perfect for my hounds, I felt confident in letting of the lead as its completely fenced. Great walks straight from the cottage. There is so much to do and visit, I cant wait to go back in August and I'll be booking again for next year as its he perfect position for the two dog shows I attended over the weekend. I would highly recommend to family and friends
