What an amazing stay we had at Winkston in May 2015. Absolutely faultless. Arlene, Jan & George were so lovely and kind to my wife and 3 daughters that I would highly recommend staying here whether visiting the area or as a base when doing the Edinburgh Festival. Cottages are spotlessly clean with all the luxury's you'd expect from a... More

Spacious comfortable rooms in a beautiful old farmhouse. Look out the windows and watch the sheep and cattle. Delicious breakfast and delightful host and hostess. I would not hesitate to recommend this bed and breakfast.

Clean, comfortable, friendly - just the place to get away from it all. Within easy reach are - beautiful scenery, lots of hill walking, Edinburgh, abbeys and castles, centuries of history, golf courses, Peebles for those who need to shop and two supermarkets (about a mile away).

A warm welcome, everything is spotlessly clean and well appointed, a hot shower, a great recommendation for a local restaurant, a comfy bed, a great night's sleep and everything you could want for in a breakfast. I couldn't recommend this B & B highly enough. We will be back.

We stayed here one night on our way to Northumberland. Very friendly and interesting hosts. Lovely house, beautifully decorated. Comfy bed and excellent breakfast, very tasty. Although on the main road there is little noise from traffic at night.

This is my go-to spot when mountain biking in Scotland near Peebles. The rooms are very nice, breakfast is excellent, and Jan has everything you need to take care of your biking related needs including good bike storage and facilities to help clean and get your kit ready for your next day's biking adventure.

We had a wonderful stay. We had the double and our two boys shared the twin. Had the place to ourselves and Jan made us a lovely fire in the lounge to sit in front of for the evening. Excellent breakfast after a good night's sleep. Thoroughly recommended.

We spent four very comfortable nights in this delightful B&B. We were welcomed by a very genial hostess, Jan, for whom nothing was too much trouble. The room was spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast provided a great selection and was very generous.
