My wife and I stayed at the Old Smithy with my elderly parents, for a 'nostalgia trip' for them, having spent many holidays in the Borders in their younger years. It is the perfect base, in the lovely small village of Ednam, just 5 minutes drive away from Kelso; and well placed for visiting all Borders attractions. The cottage itself...

Management response:

Thank you for your kind response and we are please that you found the cottage to be very comfortable, and that you had a great stay in the Borders, we hope you will come back again soon.

We stayed for a family wedding and had a really good stay. The house is beautiful and well equipped. It is very clean and spacious. The garden is large which the children enjoyed. The local town of Kelso is very friendly and the Cobbles is a must to eat. Will definitely be back.

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and we are very pleased you liked our properties and that you had a great time. Make all our efforts worth while when they are appreciated. We hope you will come back for your anniversary.
