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
