“Lovely little cottage with everything you need.”

Dale Cottage is a super bungalow/cottage with a lovely garden. The cottage has everything you need and is tastefully decorated and wonderfully clean.
Peebles is also a lovely town, just the right size, with all local amenities and some lovely shops and restaurants, never mind the countryside.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again...if she'll let me!

“Can't wait to come back!”

I came to Peebles to visit family and get some R&R, and Dale Cottage was just what the doctor ordered! The cottage is cosy, clean and in a very convenient location (quick walk to supermarket, shops, and restaurants). I loved spending time in the large back garden, which has ample seating for friends, beautiful view of the river, and a fence for privacy. The fireplace made for very cosy evenings, and there were plenty of blankets for couch lounging. Even though the cottage is located in town, the street was never busy.

Because I work on the computer, fast internet is a must for me, and the cottage did not disappoint. All amenities were well kept and running perfectly, and we made great use of the large, secure storage area below the cottage for our muddy hiking gear. The kitchen was modern and spacious, and the shower had great pressure.

Margot was very helpful and made sure I knew what was nearby. There is a great info book inside the cottage itself as well. This spot is perfect for anyone who is looking for a relaxing getaway with great hiking and company. Everyone in Peebles was friendly and welcoming, I can't wait to go back. Next time we'll bring the dogs!

“Lovely”
Reviewed July 22, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Everything was great - however, my wife has arthritis and can't use stairs very well so she was slightly disappointed when she realised there were stairs to go down to the garden. The photograph of the back garden looked as though the door was to the inside of the cottage (it actually leads to the utility area). When we looked again at the picture after we arrived we could see the stairs but that was because we knew they were there - not too obvious in the photograph. This is not a complaint, just an observation, which would be insignificant to most guests - just not so good for arthritis sufferers. Other than that, everything else was wonderful. The cottage was, clean, comfortable and very welcoming.

Many thanks for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry I wasn't there to meet you at the cottage to show you around. To avoid the steps down to the garden there is a path down the side of the house. Previous guests with mobility issues have used this way to access the garden. Thanks for making me aware of this, I will update the site to explain this to future guests.

“A beautiful cosy cottage. Well worth a visit”
Reviewed July 3, 2016 for a stay in October 2015

Myself and my husband had a lovely stay at this beautiful cosy modern cottage. A very well equipped, clean and well maintained property within a short walking distance to all amenities. Whether you prefer to relax in the comforts of this cosy cottage or walk a short distance to shops, cafes and restaurants, this is the ideal place to visit. Highly recommend. Thanks to Margot for making our stay a very enjoyable one. We hope to be back in the future.

“Great cottage in an ideal location”
Reviewed June 12, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

On arrival we were greeted by the owner and shown around the cottage, Margot also took the time to point out local walks for us and our dog. The cottage is conveniently placed for walking with the garden backing onto the river, there are also woods a short walk away. Local amenities and the town are a short walk away. The cottage itself has a good kitchen and living area. The garden is well sized and has a lovely view of the river, it has also just benefited from a new fence making it secure enough to let the dog roam free. Under the house is a large storage area with a washing machine and tumble drier, and plenty of room for storing bikes. Over all we really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was a perfect base for us and our dog and we hope to visit again.
