“Beautiful House with Good Facilities”
Reviewed 5 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012
person found this review helpful

this is a lovely house and I am surprised that there are no reviews on line ! The house has been renovated to a very high standard and is very comfortable - writing this in the beautiful lounge using the free wi-fi. The rooms are spacious and comfortable - only single beds which are very narrow if you are used to double or king (they can be put together but there is still the "join" to deal with. All the equipment/towels etc are new or in very good condition.

The only thing that lets it down is the village of Ancrum itself it is very pretty and for me lacks facilities - there is a village store and a pub which is pretty much for locals but nowhere you can walk to get something to eat. Jedburgh is about 3 miles away so at night unless you are prepared to drive then it is back to eating in and a busman's holiday for those of us who cook at home.

The bedrooms are upstairs and the stairs are very steep as you would expect in a property of this age

If none of this is an issue then I recommend Violet Cottage wholeheartedly
