“Excellent welcoming cottage” The Bothy is unique. Lovely welcome from owners and luxurious accommodation, in lounge with roaring log burning stove and large leather settees and chairs to sink into, and in the bedroom and en-suite with well chosen furniture, accessories and decoration. It was a treat to breakfast in the spacious conservatory or sit on a settee, reading some of the books and magazines provided.
It is well positioned for sight seeing.

Hi Caroline. Delighted that you had a lovely weekend. Thanks so much for the review and the recommendation.
All the best.
“Excellent Apartment” We booked this when visiting family. The accommodation is excellent and furnishings are a very high standard. Quiet area with lovely grounds around the building. Having stayed in the Melrose area several times this is by far the best.
What a beautiful apartment, very well equipped. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise, which our girls loved. Would definitely recommend this apartment.… More

“Superb house and grounds for all ages.” The house exceeded our expectations. The rooms were large, well furnished and the garden room with log burner lovely for relaxing in at any time of the day. The kitchen was very well equipped with plenty of everything even with a house full. The large garden, with bbq area, was safe for young children, plenty of car parking and the dogs enjoyed the paddock and wooded areas. The house is accessible from the north and south and the surrounding border countryside lovely to explore. Tesco delivery is easy to arrange. All in all to be recommended and we hope to return for a longer stay.
We stayed at Branxholm Knowe for a week and had an amazing time.

“Fantastic” We had a fantastic stay at Lochtower, James and Vikki are lovely people, made us feel so welcome. The house is excellent, very clean and spacious. The rooms are a good size and all the bedding, towels etc are spotlessly clean. To be staying on a farm is so different, the house has its own loch complete with little rowing boat. We enjoyed sitting outside with a glass of bubbles watching the world go by, we were so lucky with the weather. The fruit cake and raspberry jam were a nice touch, thank you. Our grandchildren loved the dogs too. We will be back

“Excellent location and property” The property is next to a small river in a small village but is also only a 5 minute drive from Kelso and Sainsburys.

Would definitely recommend staying here.

“Absolutely Fantastic” Stayed at Pine Lodge for 4 nights at end of February 2017 with family. The Lodge is absolutely fantastic, caters for all ages, as we varied from 3 years to 83 years! Lynn and Mike are amazing hosts, they are always on hand if you need anything or advice on which walks to take. This is the second time we have been and can't wait to go back. Thank you xx
“A home away from home” My partner and I stayed at Allerton House Stables for 7 days, and it more than met our expectations. Chris and Carol gave us a warm welcome, then left us alone to enjoy our self-contained accommodation secure in the knowledge that they were next door if ever we needed anything. Allerton House Stables gave us more independence than a bed and breakfast arrangement. Nonetheless, we were given access to the main house and were able to borrow dvds and books. The accommodation was immaculate and very comfortable -- the bed was especially cosy. The location is ideal: quiet yet just a few minutes walk from the centre of the town.
Just a few wee suggestions: it would be great if the wet room could somehow be converted into a dry bathroom, and a little extra cupboard space for food supplies would have been helpful.
That said, I would highly recommend it. We'll certainly be back.
The cottage served its purpose as far as we were concerned,however the bathroom is to say the least badly thought out as far as the design is concerned and a certain amount of DIY know how was require… More
