“Delightful cottage in a beautiful setting”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2016

This is the second time in 3 years we have stayed in Orchard Cottage and love the location and cottage is beautifully designed and has everything and more one would need for a holiday. Owners are always on hand if you require assistance or information. Sure we will be back for a third time.

“Excellent holiday accommodation”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2013

Very well equipped modern relaxing accommodation. Quiet village, but with a very pleasant walk into Melrose town centre. Quaint garden with lovely sitting areas.

“Exceptional Holiday Cottage”

Reviewed 6 Mar 2013

We had a lovely short break at Orchard Cottage which was very clean and comfortable with a spacious living area;ideal for socialising or to just spreading out and relax. The cottage is in a really peaceful location but offering an easy 25 minutes walk along the river into the centre of Melrose. A fantastic base to explore the beautiful countryside and wealth of places of historical interest along the River Tweed. Thank you for the very generous welcome pack which was among the many special touches which made our stay so enjoyable.

“Top class - 5 star cottage”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2013

This is a beautiful cottage to stay in. We received a warm welcome and found that every need was catered for in this lovely house. The owners have thought of everything. Finished to a very high standard and so very comfortable. Unfortunately the weather was not good so we stayed indoors quite a bit but this was not a hardship as there were dvds, books, freeview tv, games etc to keep us amused. Lovely scenery in the area and trips to gala, jedburgh, hawick etc are worth it. We ate in the Monte Casino in Melrose which was lovely. Thanks again - we will be back sometime !!

“Stunning cottage in beautiful surroundings.”

Reviewed 18 Jan 2013

My family (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed in orchard cottage for new year and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. The cottage is tastefully decorated throughout and definitely has the wow factor. Everything we needed was in the cottage which made it a home from home. The area is beautiful and we enjoyed walks by the river and into Melrose for a lovely lunch or dinner. The owners were extremely friendly and we will definitely return to orchard cottage in the future.

“Spacious, modern luxury in lovely countryside”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2012

Spent a really lovely weekend at Orchard Cottage. It has a real "wow" factor when you enter - its such a fantastic design of house, especially with the wonderful double-storey lounge - and as you explore you quickly realise that the friendly owners have thought of absolutely everything you might need (or if something seems to be missing... just ask and they'll have it!). Its totally 5 star yet also cosy and a fab place to chill out for a weekend or a much longer stay. The large entrance mat with big cloak-cupboard was a great feature so you didn't have to worrry about coming back to the pristine house from a walk with muddy boots. Another favourite feature was the real flame, easy-to-light fire... and the beds were wonderfully comfy.... and great showers.... and beautifully designed outdoor space... and the view out the top window to open fields.... It really was a gorgeous place to be! A lovely part of the country to explore. Thanks very much indeed, Mike & Pat.

“Amazing Holiday Cottage”

This is our 2nd visit to Orchard Cottage, we love the house, the beautiful area of Melrose with its lovely shops, bars, coffee houses and restaurants. It has wonderful walks for everyone to enjoy from hiking the hills to wandering down the riverbank at your leisure. Mountain bikes, fishing rods, golf clubs, sledges etc are all there to use if required! The owners have really thought about everything, walking in for the 1st time there is a welcome pack of Coffee, tea, milk etc to get you going. Simple little things like having plenty of hangers for your clothes in a huge walk in wardrobe! plenty of everything.. plates, cups, cutlery, cleaning equipment, spare batteries, cd's, dvd's ... basically everything that you need! everywhere feels spacious and luxurious with excellent quality fixtures and fittings which are to a very high standard through out the property. We visited Monte Cassino Italian restaurant which we highly recommend, also plenty of takeaways at local Galashiels if that's what you fancy. Our lads also had to go to Martin Biard Butchers for steak pasties to die for (sorry Greggs !!). Edinburgh is just a 40 min drive away with all the attractions and things to do in the city. The owners are really friendly people and nothing is too much trouble for them should you need advice or have a problem. This cottage is a true 5 Star property, We would recommend the cottage to anyone and it will not disappoint you, what are you waiting for ? book it ! we are certainly looking to book again in the future.

“5 Star Accommodation in a fabulous setting! Will do it again.....”

Had a wonderful stay! Everything was perfect. The house well designed, clean, everything you could possibly need to make your stay warm and inviting. As a bonus their were bikes, fishing rods, games , DVD's and CD's to enjoy. Nothing like ending the evening off with a glass of wine beside the fireplace after a days hiking in the hills. So much to see in the vicinity. Melrose town center is beautiful with some lovely little independent stores and restaurants. Would highly recommend this accommodation.

A well presented ,comfortable, well equipped and tasefully decorated and furnished property with everything for a short or long break no matter the season. A lovely location for touring the area, we visited various National Trust and Historic Scotland properties and came back and relaxed on our decking and even sunshine was provided. The owners introduced themselves and were very friendly and approachable. Would recommend Orchard Cottage to everyone.
