The Saddlery is ideally located for easy access to Melrose either on foot or by car. Melrose is steeped in history and offers an splendid range of bespoke shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs all serving excellent food. In summer the town of Melrose, which is a former winner of "Scotland in Bloom" competition, is bedecked with hanging baskets. It is rightly the tourist centre of The Borders and not for nothing is it known as "The Gem of Scotland".

“Fabulous cottage in Melrose highly recommend”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2016

Clean, comfortable spacious cottage. Easy parking, garden , we have stayed at this cottage twice in 12 months. Very nice location with excellent facilities . Will stay again soon .

“Charming cottage”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2016

We have just spent three lovely nights at this cosy and spacious cottage. We have extended family in Melrose but there were too many family members visiting at the same time to all stay at their home so we conveniently stayed at this lovely cottage with our two young children (3 and 1). Claire and Donald arranged a travel cot for us which was perfect and Donald graciously welcomed us despite our arrival in the dark on our first night! Highly recommended and we'll certainly return next time we come to the UK to visit our extended family.

“Great property”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2016

Great cottage with everything you need for a relaxing break. Great outdoor space for our dog and 2 children. Owners were very helpful and even sourced a dog cage for us prior to arrival. Would recommend highly and will certainly be returning.

“Idyllic cottage in beautiful setting”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2013

I stayed at Saddlery cottage for a week in July of this year with my daughter and her partner. The bedrooms were lovely and spacious, large homely kitchen which was great for family meals. There is a patio area with seating, table and barbecue which was brilliant in the hot weather. There is also a large lawn and the cottage is just outside Melrose in scenic countryside, lots of good walks nearby. The owners were very helpful and welcoming. I would consider coming back to stay in the Autumn/Winter.

Thank you for taking the time to post such a nice review. Claire

“Fantastic cottage in great location”

Reviewed 10 Dec 2012

Stayed here for a long weekend in November when it was freezing cold outside but the cottage itself was always lovely and cosy. We went with friends and our dog who loved running around in the massive garden. We went into the town which is beautiful but really ended just relaxing in the cottage, eating, drinking and cooking. Would highly recommend this place and we'd be delighted to go again. Owners were lovely when we arrived but just left US to get on with it.
