A wonderful cottage with a great, roomy kitchen, with newer appliances and all necessary pots, pans, and dishes. Living room has comfortable seating and a gas fire. The bedrooms are comfortable and have lots of closet space. Very nicely decorated and furnished, lots of books, cds, etc. The back garden has a nice table and chairs. Very quiet. Very clean. The cottage has two private parking stalls out front. It is right on the B3630 between Galashiels and the A68. A 15 minute walk across the chain bridge to Melrose. A 10 minute drive to Abbotsford and Scott's View, 5 minutes to Leaderfoot Viaduct.

“Lovely, well equipped cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 13 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This cottage is very homely and has everything you need for a perfect family holiday. There are several really useful walk books and lots of information on the local area. The location is perfect and we were able to walk into Melrose, particularly useful as we went to the famous Sevens tournament on your last day.
Would wholeheartedly recommend it.

“A comfortable, well maintained cottage in a beautiful location.”
Reviewed 12 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

What a lovely cottage - well maintained and supplied. Have greatly enjoyed my week here and feel sure I will return. There are lots of walks direct from the cottage - into Melrose, along the Tweed and up onto the Southern Upland Way. Particularly enjoyed visiting Kelso and Dryburgh Abbey (though Melrose remains my favourite). There is also plenty wildlife around. Saw a fox strolling along the road above the village and added Goosander and Oystercatcher to my birdlist.

p.s. Many thanks for the goodies.

“Wonderful retreat”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I had stayed before for weekends but this year I stayed for a month and September Cottage was a welcoming and peaceful retreat. The range of activities and places to visit is excellent and Melrose offers everything you need with its range of independent shops.
For me the perfect day is a lazy start, a walk to Melrose for shopping and coffee and then a walk along the river ending with some time in one of the many book shops in the area.
So, in summary, the cottage is well located,luxurious with a well equipped kitchen, great book collection with lots of information on the local area and a lovely courtyard garden.
I will definitely be back.
