We received the warmest of welcomes from May, as Angela, our host, was judging at a horse trial when we arrived. The Blue Room was very comfortable with splendid open views and both the dinners and the breakfasts were to die for. This is an excellent base for anyone wanting to explore the Borders and we enjoyed walking at St... More

We stayed here en route home after a holiday in the Outer Hebrides.On arrival, we were treated to afternoon tea with delicious home made sweet nibbles in the beautiful drawing room with glorious views. The bedroom shared the same view and had a wonderfully comfortable king sized bed and large en suite with free standing bath. Tea and coffee making... More

Superb in all respects! Luxuriously comfortable with attention to detail. Angela's special breakfast menu is indeed very special. It's a pity we could not stay long enough to try everything! An ideal place from which to explore the Scottish Borders.

Our room had an enormous bed in which we slept well, the bathroom was newly fitted and enormous, everywhere was very clean. The breakfast had a good range of food all freshly cooked... More

My wife and I booked a night at the Whitehouse Country House for night two of our trek along St. Cuthbert's Way in the borders area of Scotland. When we had reached Mertoun Bridge a little beyond St. Boswells we learned that the House was more than two miles farther along a very busy road. I left my wife waiting... More

A lovely house with stunning views. Spacious comfortable bedroom, huge en-suite bathroom with free-standing bath and large shower. Wonderful fluffy towels. Vast and delicious breakfast. Friendly and helpful owners and staff. What's not to like. One tiny quibble - surcharge for using a credit card. I know people have to pay for accepting payment on a credit card but this... More

Stayed here for 1 night recently. Can't really find anything negative to say about this lovely B and B. Staff courteous and efficient . Rooms nicely decorated with fabulous ensuites. Food was very nice. I would recommend letting them know any allergies or dislikes as there was no choice apart from dessert course. Certainly hope to return there soon.

Angela came to the rescue once our booking at the nearby Clint Lodge was cancelled due to a double booking, and I am delighted that she could help Clint Lodge relocate us! Visiting for a Family celebration, we were just looking for a decent bed. What we received was a warm welcome, with tea and cake. Our room (blue room)... More
