“Very good B and B with excellent hosts”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

John and Marilyn are a great team, nothing was too much trouble and they offered friendly and attentive hospitality during our stay. The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast and packed lunch were both very good. Excellent haggis! Dinner reservation was made at the local pub for us.

I had the good fortune of staying in the Lavender Room in the annex to The Farmhouse as part of a walking holiday. From the booking to checking out the experience was without any problems and both the owners did their utmost to cater for my needs. I was staying there to complete the most northerley section of The Pennine Way, the section from Byrness to Kirk Yetholm is about 27 miles and I wished to break the section into two parts. Transport had been organised for me from Cocklawfoot to Kirk Yetholm and return, and in spite of me wishing to depart without breakfast as I wished to get under way just after 0600, breakfast was made for me before my departure.
The Lavender room is a nice size double bedroom with en suite jacuzzi bath and electric shower with vanity unit, the only window is a Velux roof window with remote control blind, which works perfectly. There is a lounge (conservatory like) area outside the room with comfortable setee and chairs as well as a small dining table and chairs and an adjacent kitchen with all the mod cons, for those who wish to do self catering. The decor is well thought out and it gives a bright and cheery aspect to the room.
Further inside the main building is a lovely large lounge and the dining room, which again is tastefully decorated and very pleasing to the eye.
I intend to return here with my wife as the area has so much to offer, and I would not think of staying anywhere else, you are treated so well, by two very hard working owners, who I wish continued success for the future as they deserve it. If you are going to book, use the phone and speak with Marilyn or Jon they are soooooo helpful, and you get a better deal rather than through internet booking services who pile on their commission.

We stayed for a weekend with our dogs and it was excellent, John and Marilyn made you feel so welcome. The accommodation was great, the food amazing and they couldn't do enough to help, it was very handy as you could book an evening meal there or if you were off walking for the day they would make you up a packed lunch in the morning. Would recommend to anyone and hopefully stay there again

Lovely spot with own self contained unit with a small courtyard. John was extremely helpful allowing us the use of the bath in the other un-occupied bedroom after a very long day walking. Then when a member of the party was ill during the night he arranged a transfer to next B&B. Many thanks

My son and i stayed at the farm house on Monday and Tuesday night i can only describe Marilyn and John as fantastic. We had problems with our booking ( which was made through expedia i advise never to use them) and they were not expecting us but they both went above and beyond to help us out. Thank you both. Our room was small but immaculate and more than fit for purpose. I would recomend anyone to stay there. Thanks again.

We stayed one night only at this lovely b and b on our walking holiday. The room was very comfortable, if a little small, but it didn't matter as there was a comfy double bed and a clean, quality en suite shower room. Our hosts were friendly, but not intrusive. They cooked us an excellent evening meal, and went out of their way to accomodate my dietery requirements. the next day we set off with a a very reasonably priced pack lunch, including some very well stuffed sandwiches. all in all, a very pleasant stay and highly recomended.

Just spent 2 nights at the Farmhouse with friends, as part of a cycling holiday around the Scottish Borders. This was our second visit and cannot fault the place! Marilyn and Jon cant do enough for guests - the accomodation was great, food was really nice (including a huge breakfast!) and there were a couple of good pubs nearby for an evening visit! I'm sure we'll be back.
