A very pleasent location with exceptionally nice landlords. The cottage is located well for our week and anything needed was not too much trouble. This is our second year of staying at the farm and would be top of the list for next year.

We had the Orchard room and it was large, well appointed and comfortable. There's a dab radio and DVD player and freesat. And the shower was great. Breakfast was lovely and we were made to feel very welcome. Only downside was that the farmhouse is just over a mile and a half from Peebles - I hadn't realised that when... More

A warm welcome from Jan and a recommend for a good local Italian restaurant. The room was very good size including small sofa and armchair and good en-suite shower and very comfortable bed. Excellent breakfasts. All you could want from a B & B. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in this area.

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.
