This is a perfect place to stay - there is not one single thing I can think of (despite trying) that is negative. The rooms are huge, the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are huge and have everything you need (and more - deep, wide bathtubs, showers for two, the toiletries you need). The views are beautiful. The hosts are... More

Our first stay and wont be the last. A lovely old house that was toasty warm, the bedroom was spacious and the bed was a very comfortable super king. The bathroom had a powerful shower, no trickles here, and plenty of hot water. The dining and drawing rooms both had wonderful views of the countryside and the latter had comfy... More

We are so lucky to live in such a wonderful part of the Scottish Borders, Whitehouse enjoys such breathtaking scenery and yet is only a 5 minute drive from St. Boswells. We so enjoy sharing our home with guests and it means a lot to us that you have taken the time to write such a heartfelt review. Thank you.... More

Our second stay and already looking forward to our third. Lovely new bathroom and everything so comfortable and food so good, especially the salmon and pheasant provided by Roger's rod and gun. Our planned two day stay was extended to three following car problems and Roger most kindly transported us and our luggage to the local garage to which the... More

Our first taste of Scotland on our way up to The Highlands. Warm welcome received by Roger and given tea and cake in the lounge. We opted for the evening meal which perhaps for us we found to be overpriced for the food we received. The cost of £29 per person seemed high compared to other good places we stayed... More

Angela, the owner, made you feel like you were visiting a friend's home. A beautiful, welcoming house, great room and a fantastic breakfast. It made our weekend visit to the borders extra special. Well worth the trip and handy for all of the local attractions. We'll be back.
