Lovely accommodation and a fantastic location. We booked 1 day before arriving and everything was as we needed. Helpful owners. A great place to access the beautiful countryside or visit Edinburgh. Highly recommended

I stayed at Winkstone Farmhouse as part of a group of 12 golfers on a long weekend in Peebles. It was a perfect spot for us, very clean and well equipped cottages that sleep 4 and our own space at night to have a few drinks and talk about the missed putts and wayward shots. Jan and her family provide...

First of all to say, booking of Winkston Farmhouse was very comfortable. We had an intensive e-mail-contact with the renters and all of our needs (especially a cot four our little daughter) were considered. We had a warm welcome, on the table several sweets and a bottle of wine were waiting for us. Overall the cottage had a very comfortable...

This was our first time at a Bed & Breakfast and we had no idea what to expect. Jan, who owns and runs Winkston Farmhouse, operates a first class property. If we stayed in a hotel that was furnished as our room was here, we could not afford it. We would like to thank Jan for being so accommodating. First...

We had a warm welcome from Jan, who kindly sorted out our dietary requirements. The double aspect room was perfect. Very clean with everything you'd expect from a four star room. The towels were plentiful and soft! In fact we had such a good nights sleep that we booked again for our return journey from Northern Scotland. We were not...

We stayed in the Cosy Neuk cottage for a week and were warmly welcomed when we arrived. It was fitted out with everything we needed for our stay and my daughters loved the spiral staircase up to the bedroom on the mezzanine level. There is a room for bike storage and covered parking space.

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...
