“Peaceful retreat”

This was our second time staying at Dimpleknowe cottage and we are pleased to say it was just as good as our previous visit. The cottage is equipped with all the essentials you are going to need and is set in a lovely quiet position adjoining a golf course which is nice for a quiet walk. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxed break we can recommend Dimpleknowe.

I am sorry you were disappointed.
The amount of energy used can vary significantly between visitors to this property and therefore providing meter readings is the most efficient way to pay just for what you use. This method has never been an issue for visitors in the past.


We have always provided a very generous starter pack; a full basket of logs, kindling and some coal beside the fire. Previous visitors have paid for extra bags of coal/logs with no issues.


The passage way with all rooms leading off can be dark when all the doors are closed but there is good lighting provided. All other rooms are exceptionally well light with large windows.


The photos do accurately reflect the property and furniture as per our other reviews.


Shortly after your premature departure an inspection was carried out by a former secretary of a residential London Club who has a great deal of experience with housekeeping issues. Neither of us could not find any traces of a damp smell.


The only noticeable aroma was from an air freshener. We are sorry if this was not to your liking.


I would have to disagree with your remark that I was rude. I was however quite taken aback by your attitude and reaction after your early arrival to the property which regularly receives excellent feedback.

“Ideal for a secluded holiday in the Borders”
Reviewed July 27, 2016 for a stay in June 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We received a very warm welcome from the owner and found the cottage to be comfortable, having lovely views and well equipped for a self catering holiday. The cottage is in a very secluded situation with picturesque surroundings. It is ideally situated for using the adjacent golf course (by way of the rear garden gate) and also for exploring the local towns.
The beds were really comfortable and there was a very pleasant garden seating area (depending on the weather). The approach road from the A7 was narrow with some passing places.

We have recently returned from our fourth stay at Dimpleknowe cottage and as always had an excellent stay.
The cottage is ideally situated in a very quiet and scenic hamlet. Surrounded by wonderful walks and an excellent golf course great for walking the dogs on.
The web site gives a perfect picture of the cottage and surrounding countryside.
An ideal get away from it all holiday home with helpful owners if required.
