Mick & Bev were very welcoming, friendly and hospitable. They gave us lots of information about the local area, with good places to take the kids and dog. We made very good use of the hot tub which was just amazing - especially at night when the stars were out!! Overall a lovely restful week. Hope to be back in the future. :)

My husband and I enjoyed a three night stay in October. We received a warm welcome from the owners, who also provided some guidance on walks in the atea. The king bedroom was lovely and had a very comfy bed. We enjoyed lunch at The Waggon in Kelso and would rate the food and service as 9/10. There is a fanstastic view from the hot tub at Barn Owl
