“Fabulous cottage in Melrose highly recommend”
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 .
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 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”
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”
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.
