“Fantastic Family Break”
Reviewed 8 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Just back from a great few days on a farm cottage stay in the heart of the Scottish Borders!

We turned up late on the Thursday night but Ashley (owner) left the key for us in a safe and cottage heating was on so was lovely & cost for our arrival!

The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and had all the facilities we needed. Each room has its own subtle decor theme which is nice and I think it is also a lot bigger than it looks in the photos.

The main sitting room is a gorgeous living space. It has loads of windows so is light & bright during the day but also cosy at night once the log fire got roaring!

The farm itself is very clean, tidy and relatively quiet for a working farm. Simon (owner) took our boys on a tractor ride which they loved as well as visiting the cows & horses.

In terms of location, there was loads to do (we could have done with longer!). Harestanes Visitor centre & Born in the Borders are close by, Kelso is only a couple of miles down the road where there are many lovely shops & cafes etc. Although I didn't get a chance to play , the Roxburghe Golf Course is just down the road too & it's a Championship course

We actually spent more time in the cottage than we anticipated as the boys had so much space (inside & outside) to play and for us to relax.

Great value for money for a family break, thank you to Simon & Ashley for looking after us.

Ps. Our 5 year old boy managed to get his 2 year old brother to join him in a chant of "COTTAGE! COTTAGE! COTTAGE!" in protest on the drive home. Think that says it all!

Gorgeous cottage. We had a really lovely, chilled weekend celebrating my brothers 60th birthday. Log burning stove made it so cosy! Thank you Asheigh and Simon for making us feel so at home.

“Just gorgeous!”
Reviewed 12 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We - Mum, Dad, two children and Grandma - were looking for a cottage close to Kelso for a short October break. We could not have chosen better than Kersmains Farm Cottage which provided the ideal getaway. The cottage has been recently refurbished and was tastefully decorated as well as being clean and cosy. We were made welcome by the owners who had added some little touches which were very much appreciated, such as the welcome tray and fresh flowers. We didn't do a great deal of exploring as our main purpose was to spend time relaxing together away from our usual busy lives but for those who would like to be out and about, information was provided. We did eat out in Kelso and enjoyed meals at Mayfield Garden Centre (lovely lunch) and the Waggon Inn (lunch and evening meal). I would definitely return to this spacious, well equipped and extremely comfortable cottage and heartily recommend it to others who are planning to visit this beautiful part of Scotland.
