We had the most wonderful and enjoyable stay at this excellent B&B. I don't think I have ever been made to feel so welcome when staying away. When I arrived on the bus from Edinburgh to stay for a couple of days researching my family tree in the Peebles area, Jan couldn't have been more helpful. She certainly went the... More

This is a 4* B&B home from home. Beautifully decorated and furnished with every little detail looked after. We only spent one night so had to explore Peebles in the evening after our visit in the daytime to Dawyck Botanical Gardens. We easily walked into Peebles town centre in 15mins for a look around and a good curry at the... More

This B&B is about a mile out of Peebles set high off the road on a working farm. Run by Janice a wonderful host who makes a great breakfast. Rooms were very clean and tastefully decorated, had the best nights sleep since we arrived in Scotland

My husband and I stayed here for four nights on the way to Fort William. The room we stayed in wasn't massive but was perfectly laid out, plenty of room for all our normal and mtb clothes! The cooked breakfast was lovely and had good choice of cereals. Janice and her husband were extremely welcoming and friendly throughout our stay,... More

We were taking part in the annual car hill trial at Biggar and decided to stay at Peebles as it's a great town with good access to Edinburgh and lovely surrounding countryside: there's a bus on the main road just 100 yards away from the house, so you can hop on that and be in Edinburgh in a hour, with...

Amazing views all round. The owners have provided a beautiful and peaceful home from home. Everything is top quality. The breakfast was so tasty. I ate way more than I needed! I wish I could cook sausage and bacon so that it was both juicy and slightly crispy. Superb. The rating is well deserved. Excellent value for money. I would... More

My husband and I stayed in Ploughman's Rest, one of the self-catering cottages on the farm, as we were attending a wedding at the local Peebles Hydro Hotel. The cottage was very cosy, comfortable, fully equipped and spotlessly clean. Jan's husband George showed us all the newborn lambs on the farm, which was lovely. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and... More

Our visit to Peebles was to go biking at Glentress. We arrived on a very cold, wet & windy day. Jan (our hostess) instantly greeted us with a warm smile and allowed us to drop off our bags before heading back out. She pointed out the secure bike store for our return and gave us a guide around the house.... More

Fabulous farmouse, in a beautiful and very convenient location. The owner is lovely and chatting without intruding, the accommodation luxurious and spacious and couldn't be in a better location on the Edinburgh Road. Plenty to do and see around and about too. Peebles is a lovely little town for a wander and Edinburgh less than an hour away.

Stayed here a good few years ago with a bunch of mates for mountain biking, I enjoyed it so much I rented a cottage for my family on a visit a few years later and have been back a few more years too. So good points - Accommodation is well sized, clean and modern. No complaints on beds, rooms or... More
