My hubby and I stayed when hubby was running St Cuthberts Trail Ultra Marathon. When running we're not the easiest of guests as we have many peculiar requests. Angela was exceptional in looking after us even thinking of things that we hadn't and she really went above and beyond. We are very grateful for that, we have stayed at other... More

We stayed at the Whitehouse for one night after flying into Edinburgh earlier in the day. I was tired from a sleepless flight and my first experience driving on the left hand side of the road. We had many likes about this B&B. Angela is a lovely hostess who runs the joint with great calmness. Her husband is the “local... More

This is an old home in the country a short distance outside St. Boswells. The views from the large windows was rolling countryside - beautiful. Very peaceful with lovely accommodations and amenities. Our hosts were most friendly and helpful with our day trip plans and recommendations. Wouldn't be disappointed .

We booked up at short notice, and we are very pleased we discovered this delightfully peaceful B & B about 3 miles east of St Boswells! Angela's cooking is lovely, our bedroom, dining room and drawing room had every home comfort, and our bath was so huge it was a challenge to get out of. Both her staff and the... More

Whitehouse is a fantastic B&B - great room (blue room), amazing bathroom, very friendly and helpful host and a great breakfast in the morning. Located near St Boswells and Melrose for place to visit and eat and 40 mins from Edinburgh. Well worth a stay!

I found the Whitehouse via an Internet search and contacted the owner. From the very start the owner, Angela, couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. I booked a family room which include two double beds for my husband and two children. I also took Angela up on her off for dinner which cost £29 for adults and £15 for... More

We cannot recommend this fabulous Country House highly enough. Extremely warm welcome from Angela and her team (including delectable dogs!), despite our very late arrival. Beautifully presented room with en suite free-standing bath and sumptuously-decorated huge bathroom. The most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. Beautiful views from our room. Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. Clearly the owners have... More
