“Fantastic house for socialising with a group of friends or family”
Reviewed April 26, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Fabulous house, amazing view from the balcony, great bedrooms, kitchen facilities were spot on for cooking for a large group of people no shortage of glasses.
The location is great for all areas we did a park and ride into Edinburgh as well as walking to Melrose and the abbey the area around is superb very scenic.
We were a party of 10 and enjoyed the house and the surrounding garden, we even had a deer visist us twice!!! Recommend this house to anyone, we would definitely return.

“Wonderfull Spacious House”
Reviewed February 20, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We had a wonderful time with 3 generations of our family at Tweed Rig. The house has everything required for a large group. There was plenty of space for two 6 year olds to have fun exploring both inside and outside. It was a bit chilly in February but was nice and warm indoors. The photos don't really show how large the living areas are and the Table Tennis was a super addition to this well equipped and spotlessly clean house. The PS2 and retro video games didn't work when we were there but it didn't spoil our enjoyment at all. The road up to Tweed Rig is quite steep so would perhaps not be suitable for the older traveller.

Gattonside is a very quiet location for a relaxing holiday but has 2 swing parks for the children. One, which would cater for under 5s, is just 50m down the road from the house. Melrose itself is a lovely little town about 30 minutes walk from Tweed Rig with good a butchers, bakery and a small co-op as well as individual specialist retailers. We had a superb Sunday Roast in The Station Hotel at the top of the main street which was excellent value at £7.95 per head.
We would love to visit again in the future. The owner Debbie was very helpful and even left some fizz in the fridge for our arrival- a really nice touch.

“Beautiful house with everything you need”
Reviewed August 15, 2011 for a stay in January 2011

person found this review helpful

We visited the house with family and friends for a 50th Birthday and had an excellent 4 day stay. Goats Lane gets a bit slippy in the winter so be prepared to leave the cars at the bottom or risk being snowed in. Take a torch for when night arrives or, be like our neighbours, and get a miners lamp for your head! Nice pub nearby where we all had a lovely meal - can't remember the name of it but plenty of brochures in the house to look through. The view from the house is tremendous and I'd love to visit in the summer to enjoy the balcony out front. Would definitely go back there as, even if your snowed in, the facilities indoors are excellent.

“lovely house - perfect for our family get-together!”
Reviewed July 28, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Lovely accommodation - especially the master bedroom on the top floor - what a fantastic view of Melrose, the abbey and surrounding countryside. The place was spotless and very attractively furnished and decorated. It was also well-equipped -with a Playstation 2 downstairs to keep the kids happy as well as tabletop football- also Sky TV and wi-fi. We were a party of 10 - 7 adults and 3 children - and it was a great base for exploring the Borders - we went to ruined abbeys, stately homes, gardens galore, did fishing, ponytrekking, shopping and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Nothing was too much trouble for Debi the owner, who sorted out a couple of things for us very promptly and efficiently and had also left us a bottle of champagne in the fridge - good service.
