Lovely cottage. Very comfortable and clean. We really enjoyed our stay . Big soft sofas and comfortable bed to relax after a long day exploring. The Nespresso machine and Alexa added to our holiday. The location was excellent and we got parked at the little car park behind the cottage and the car did not move for 3days. Peebles is a great place . LRead moreots of walks, cafes etc and nice little shops. Hide

The cottage was lovely and spacious, well equipped and clean. It was lovely to find plenty of coat hangers and hooks behind the bedroom and bathroom doors. ( something I have found lacking in other cottages weve stayed in). Lovely comfortable beds and very clean.

Great location for mountain-biking and lockable bike shed a bonus. Very clean and comfortable home with some of the best beds weve slept in on holiday. Well-equipped kitchen and attentive owners who made themselves readily available for queries/problems.
