Our third visit here. Spotlessly clean, well equipped accommodation suitable for families, couples or singles as there is a range of different style of cottage. Very helpful friendly hosts. Close to Peebles, with all amenities, view of farm land and close to river for evening walks. Superb value.

We have just had a fantastic week in the beautiful holiday cottage. The cottages are well equipt,superbly cleaned on a family run farm.
Our grandchildren loved feeding the new born lambs, watching the cats running around the yard.
This farm is accesible for all ages.
Jan and george are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much bother.
The farm is handy for peebles and is just a bus ride to edinburgh. The bus stops at end of drive.
Will definetly be back

Oh thank you so much for your very kind words.
You have given a great overall picture of Springtime in the countryside.
If you have not had a stay in the Borders before this is a lovely time to visit,it has lots to offer.
It gives the best choices of a good base to tour from or hop on the bus and have a city tour of Edinburgh just a few minutes walk to use our excellent bus service.
You are very welcome anytime and we would love to have you again to stay.
Kindest regards Jan

We spent four nights here and would highly recommend this. Jan was an excellent host and nothing was too much trouble. We even got to see dozens of their new born lambs on the farm which was a bonus. Superb breakfasts with local produce. We will be back.

A family group of 11 of us spent 7 nights over Christmas staying in 3 of the self catered cottages and had a fantastic time. All of the cottages were very comfortable with good facilities. Age range of our group was a pretty even spread from 3months old to 70ish and the cottages worked well for all of us. The owners were brilliant at optimising our stay by allowing us to re-arrange crockery and furniture between the 3 cottages so that we could all eat together in the middle one.

I'm a keen mountain biker, which makes the tweed valley a perfect destination, I really appreciated the secure bike storage and convenient hose for bike washing.

In terms of local area Peebles seemed a really nice village(small town?), great kids play parks and nice atmosphere. The other villages along the tweed valley seemed nice too and there's loads of outdoor activities to do as well as truly world class mountain bike trails.

Over our stay we enjoyed a decent snowfall which wasn't forecast when we set off for the trip so we hadn't packed sledges, the owners were great about lending us sledges and were happy to let us sledge in the field behind the farm house which was awesome.

The owners were also very helpful with communications in advance of our trip so that we had a good impression of what was available and what we would need to bring.

Couldn't say enough good things really, a brilliant (especially for mountain biking) and scenically stunning part of the world and this accommodation is a great choice.

Bunch of us stayed in the cottages, self catering. Everything was perfect, felt right at home as soon as we arrived. The owners were lovely and kind enough to show us the stables!
Cottages were really pretty, had facilities like good WiFi, tea, coffee and biscuits, kettle, cutlery and crockery, enough for the 4 of us.
Definitely be staying again.
