If you are seeking a ‘true’ cottage in The Borders with ample room, yet remaining warm and cosy, I can thoroughly recommend you come to Owl Cottage. The views are magnificent, provides everything you could wish for in home comforts and felt more like a home swap rather than a holiday property. Read my full Diary of our week spent... More
