Fantastic cottage in stunning location which provided a perfect base for exploring the borders. Secure garden for our dog which was ideal. Ann and David are perfect hosts just a short distance away should any questions arise. We didnt want to come home.

This cottage was just what we were looking for, well equipped , nice quiet setting, and large safe garden to let the dogs run around without any worry. Very friendly owner and some nice welcome treats.

The cottage was lovely, perfect for our needs, roomy, clean and fresh, in good decorative order and very welcoming. The basic provisions were very much appreciated - including the bottle of wine. Anne and her husband couldn't have been more welcoming and were on hand if there were any questions we wanted to ask about the area - what to do where - aRead morelong with lots of information in the cottage too. We had a wonderful holiday and will definitely look to visiting again the same time next year. Hide

This cottage is quite remote - the owners are close by in the farmhouse. It was perfect to tour the beautiful area. We travelled as far as Loch Lomond and Berwick upon Tweed and a lovely day in Edinburgh. Very peaceful place to stay with the most helpful owners.

A very comfortable, well equipped and stylishly furnished cottage for two people located on a working farm 6 miles west of Peebles. The cottage is set in a beautiful and peaceful location with plenty of places of interest in the general area. Peebles is an attractive town with lots of independent shops, 2 supermarkets and 2 service stations.

Lovely peaceful location on working farm. The stone cottage is comfortable, warm and equipped with everything needed for a restful holiday. The owners are welcoming .... and even more so are the five working collies who make sure they include a visit to the gate into their daily routine!

This was a perfect 1 bedroom cottage located on a farm. No street lights, no road traffic, night sky filled with stars....blissful. We stayed for 2 weeks and were extremely comfortable and cosy.

Reviewed by Holly 22nd February 2019

Very lovely little cottage situated on a farm which was comforting knowing that if we needed any help, it was not far away. 10 minutes from the village of Peebles which had shops and some lovely little pubs that are dog friendly which was ideal for us. Very clean cottage and had everything we needed! Would definitely go and stay there again!

Castle Cottage is a lovely cosy cottage that is very well equipped and nicely decorated. Situated on the farm, the cottage is perfect if you're thinking about taking a dog as it has a large fully enclosed garden. We were there in January but, in the summer, it would be lovely to sit outside for drinks or maybe a BBQ? Firmly located in the countrysiRead morede, away from the main towns and shops, it's great for walks, with or without the dog, over open countryside. We will certainly be returning. Hide
