Great place to stay. The house itself had everything you could possibly need for a family trip,. Very clean, spacious and nicely decorated. Perfect house in a perfect location. Will definitely be booking again.

“"Relaxing Easter Break With Friends"”
Reviewed April 19, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Found Tweed Cottage to be the perfect base for exploring Melrose and the Scottish Borders. A cosy, clean and comfortable property set in the quiet, peaceful village of Gattonside. Three good sized bedrooms, well appointed kitchen with cosy living room and open log fire.

Lovely scenic riverside walks close by along the banks of the River Tweed. A ten minute walk from the cottage takes you into Melrose via the pedestrian suspension bridge where a number of shops, pubs and restaurants can be found.

Value for money, highly recommended.

“Comfortable cottage”
Reviewed July 18, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

A well presented cottage with a well equipped kitchen. Loved the 8 burner hob. Could have done with a plunger to unblock the toilet (only once - had to improvise, don't ask. Definitely a man's job). Very good train service to Edinburgh from nearby Tweedbank. £11.10 return off peak and free parking.

“Fabulous cottage in a wonderful location. Loved our stay.”
Reviewed October 18, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Gattonside is a quiet little village from which to access much that The Borders has to offer. We walked our puppy along the banks of the Tweed, up the Eildon Hills, and around the many Melrose walking routes. The bridge makes the centre of Melrose only a few minutes walk away. We loved the log fire and the well resourced kitchen/ cottage. The play park across the lane was well used by our children too. Great place - highly recommended.

“Wonderful cottage, lovely location.”
Reviewed June 29, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed here for a long weekend and it really was a great place to stay. Finished to a high standard in a great location. The kids loved the park just opposite. Will be booking again if we come back. Thanks to Barbara for a great stay.

“Great last minute stay”
Reviewed June 11, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Really nice place to stay. Booked last minute but everything was in order. Have stayed in many other cottages up and down the country. This is one if the best for comfort and amenities. Slight problem with the heating at first as it had been exceptionally cold. However a phone call to the owner and it was easily sorted out. More than enough equipment provided in the kitchen, wouldn't hesitate to come here again. Very comfortable, you can tell it's a well loved property.
