“Well-equipped and spacious converted Smithy in ideal location to explore the Borders”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We spent a comfortable Christmas in this well appointed converted Smithy. There was plenty of space for 6 adults and 2 children. A particular highlight was the superbly appointed kitchen with vaulted ceiling and fabulous range cooker which made cooking Christmas dinner for 10 a breeze. Lovely location overlooking the river Eden in the tiny village of Ednam but only 2 miles from Kelso and the delights of the beautiful Scottish Borders. Highly recommended.

“Comfortable and Spacious holiday home”
Reviewed August 24, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The property was very comfortable and spacious, finished to a high specification making is a joy to live in. The fact of a second property on the site makes it very attractive for holidays with an extended family and the grounds would make it ideal for a large group. It is situated very close to Kelso which is a lovely border town and is accessible for Edinburgh (we were there for the Festival), although it is about an hour's drive.
