Very lovely cottage in countryside setting. Home made scones and strawberry jam on arrival and lovely hosts.

Reviewed by Ken, 29th June 2019

Very comfortable cottage ideally situated for walks or drives around the Scottish Borders, or striking out to the coast - we went to Berwick and Bamburgh. Thoroughly recommended for a peaceful unwinding. The only downside: I forgot to ask for the recipe for the complementary homemade rhubarb and vanilla jam!
