We had never been to the borders area of Scotland before and chose this place on the basis that it was central and would happily accept our German Shepherd dog.
The Cottage was imaculate and pretty well furnished. The location was a real good base for exploring what we now know is a lovely part of Scotland. James the owner was very helpfull and accomodating and made us feel very welcome. I don't think we could have chosen better for what we needed and we intend to go back at some point later in the year.
The Fishing rights to the adjacent trout river will be attractive to fishermen.

On arrival you'll be greeted by ample off road parking within the grounds of this lovely, rural setting.
Our hosts Viv and James were on hand to welcome us, walk us through the accommodation, it's features and were at pains to make us aware that they were just a knock of the door away for any help or assistance.
The "flat" is aptly named and accurately described; all on one level which was important for my father who needs easy walk in access.
In through the hallway and the central living room with Dining area is well proportioned and a party of 6/8 would find it spacious!
To one end of the living room is bedroom one with en-suite shower & bathroom. Copious hot water, and good shower. .hot water and pressure!
The bedroom is equipped with a bunk bed, comfortable, cosy and all supplied with bed linen.
To the other end now. ..the fully equipped kitchen was sizeable and left nothing needed..all items supplied to cook & prepare any meal. Washing machine/dryer, cooker, microwave etc etc, nothing omitted that I could think of.
On through the kitchen area was bedroom two, with an enormous double bed and oodles of room to move around. En suite again with the same bountiful hot water supply and good shower. .no dribbling excuse for a shower here!
Central heating throughout and a separate gas fire in the living room will keep any chills at bay; or for warmer weather..open the sliding doors to the outside patio area with tables & seats to enjoy the quiet which is only broken by the sound of the gentle river flow or birdsong or horses clip clopping with their riders.
The "flat" offers an excellent base from which to strike out and explore the Scottish Borders, high quality accommodation for your time in the flat,and you'll be happy to give a write up to let others find their way here.
I highly recommend the accommodation to you for a friend's or family holiday.
Ohhh and the broadband works well for laptop, smartphones if you really need them and on a clear skies night...the milky way is beautiful to behold from just outside the front door.
Hats off to Viv and James for their gem of a house. Hope this helps others to get there.
