“Delightful cottage”
Reviewed January 1, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The cottage was just as pictured. Well located for touring around the boarders. Quiet location. Easy to find, not far from A68 road. Very well equipped kitchen and seasonal touches like a Xmas tree and cloth on the dining table.
Melrose was just across the river from Gattonside. There is a short walk to the town but not explained in the cottage information, which would have been helpful. We found out from someone in Melrose how to get to Gattonside without driving around a longer distance. It's a lovely walk. Also no information on local places to eat, though there is a pub but not opening until 2015. We did see a Bistro on the main road of Gattonside, which we tried and was very good.
There were a few maintenance problems in the cottage, which were dealt with immediately. These could have been avoided if the previous tenants had reported the problems and not just left us to discover them!
Overall a very pleasant stay and lovely cottage.

“"Perfect location...Lovely property"”

We didn't know what to expect when we booked September Cottage, but we weren't disappointed! The cottage is in a fantastic spot, very well located. You can visit pretty border towns like Melrose, get stunning views of the border valleys from the mountains, or simply walking using the local footpaths along the river.
On the other hand, you can enjoy the big cities like Edinburgh, where we spent two days having a look to the activities of the theatre festival.

The cottage is beautifully decorated, very warm and provides every thing you need. The place is immaculate and bedding clean and crisp.

Mis Young has been very nice, she made us feel very welcome and gave us every information we needed. Thank you very much Sthefanie.

We wouldn't have wished for a more perfect place to spend a week in and hope to come back again. I strongly recommend it!

“Comfortable and friendly”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Lovely cottage location central for visiting local attractions Edinburgh 45 minutes drive from cottage or simply walking fishing or golfing. Ms Young maintains the cottage to a very high standard and makes her guests feel very welcome. Would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting the peace and quiet of the borders perfect for exploring the beautiful border towns and countryside. Look forward to returning to this beautiful cottage.

Management Response

We translated this courtesy of google, so we may not be responding accurately, as some of the translation did not make sense. We are sorry you did not enjoy all the facilities as much as our other guests - books, games, toys etc. We are fixing the broken window which you reported. All our beds, linens and towels are new and replaced regularly to ensure high standards. I think you also requested to come back, for an extra night, so we hope that means you did enjoy your holiday. Thank you for your review.
