As someone well travelled- Hard to beat this experience anywhere in the world!
We stayed at Millsyde but also booked one of the small cottages for our party of 8.
My husbands 60 birthday celebration could not have been better- beautiful farm location, close to amenities of Kelso, something for all the family with an age range of 4- 60.
Immaculate Millsyde with every luxury from home- cosy, underfloor heating, beautiful kitchen, fully equipped with beautiful crockery and glassware, dishwasher, washing machine and drier, spacious rooms, beautiful linen and luxury beds, with so many personal touches from Sue, the owner. Board games, large screen TV, set tea table on arrival with warm rock cakes, home made bread and fresh farm eggs, fresh flowers and even a bottle of bubbly to celebrate my husbands birthday.
My expectations were high as I had researched the venue and they were surpassed!
We sampled fishing with eoin and cly shooting with Alastair at the Roxburghe hotel- a real experience enjoyed by the whole family. Pony trekking at Bowhills stables, individually hand led, as we were beginners. A fantastic meal, also catering for children at the Cobbles with scallops and fresh spring lamb.
The whole experience made the birthday celebration an experience for the whole family to remember for many years to come.
Thanks to all those who provided an experience that would be hard to better anywhere in the world! Special thanks to Sue at Henderson farm for making it so special. My grandson hasnt stopped talking about feeding the lambs since he got home.
