“An excellent find.”
Reviewed September 15, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This is a very comfortable and well equipped property with lots of character and charm. Very convenient location for a short stay while attending a wedding at Wedderburn Castle - and lots of nice touches including flowers and chocolate cake.

“Perfect peaceful getaway”
Reviewed July 31, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We loved our week here, so quiet but with all you need easily within reach! Lovely garden to sit in and it had all we needed.
Great spot for local walks, taking longer trips to Lindesfarne/Bamburgh as well as all the Borders abbeys and other historical sites.
The welcome hamper was fabulous.
Thank you.

“Good holiday rental”
Reviewed July 17, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Good little apartment. Its up stairs to the rooms and they are well laid out and offer every convenience you would want apart from no TV (this is stated in the literature) and WiFI is only in the lounge and bedroom. Made very welcome by Kathi and Eric, also a welcome hamper was provided, well stocked. The apartment is close to the town centre, an easy walk,5 minutes, with a variety of shops and restaurants, cafes and pubs. An enjoyable holiday.

A beautiful, quaint place to stay. Fully equipped and very comfortable. Even added extras for our toddler! A great base for us to explore from.
Would highly recommend this to others.

My daughter-in-law & I stayed here for two nights and wished it could have been a week! Wonderful family, very helpful; real pleasure to stay here. Very cosy, even had one of the family cats come to visit us! We will definitely be going back there on our next trip to Scotland in 2016!

Stayed with two young children who had the time of their lives. Great family friendly venue, but would also be lovely secluded break for couples. Excellent hosts who have thought of everything. Thoroughly recommend.

“"Home away from home."”
Reviewed October 10, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

If you are on holiday in another country and you find a place that feels like “home away from home” you will want to go back there. So I did just that. I spent a week in the ”Gardeners lodge” in the beginning of May this year and when I decided to go back to Scotland in September, I of course chose the same place to stay. This time for two weeks. It’s a very charming place, with everything you need and want inside. Lots of books and brochures of Scotland, a very comfortable bed (that I wouldn’t mind to have at home) and everything you need in the kitchen. Kath and Eric will help you with everything you need and the children are charming. In one sentence-Perfec
