Reviewed by Ken 29th June 2019

Very comfortable cottage ideally situated for walks or drives around the Scottish Borders, or striking out to the coast - we went to Berwick and Bamburgh. Thoroughly recommended for a peaceful unwinding. The only downside: I forgot to ask for the recipe for the complementary homemade rhubarb and vanilla jam!
