the location of the property is ideal quiet amazing views over the countryside but the property needs attention a lot of the wood in the cottage has shrunk back and split moving away from the plasterwork and all the doors and floorboards creek

We had the best week in the cottage with our two children, the views are amazing and the cottage is spotlessly clean and very comfortable, its even better in real life. We will certainly be booking again :)

Border Retreat is the best cottage we have ever stayed in. Utterly beautiful location ( general scenery, sunrise and sunsets), stunning, well equipped and comfortable barn, the sort of place you want to keep to yourself, but equally share with others! There were plenty of places to walk the dogs locally. The perfect place to chill out and get the mRead moreost out of not having to use the car if you didn't want to.

Beautiful isolated cottage with superb views but beware access via steep steps is not for the unfit or faint hearted particularly when carrying bags etc .

The photos on the website do not do this lovely cottage justice. The cottage itself it cute and charming and the location is spectacular. The views are just stunning and it is so peaceful. By far our favourite holiday cottage. It has everything you would need as a home from home and as a setting for a peaceful retreat it is perfect.

Wonderful cottage, so peaceful - a wonderful escape from the rat race, just what the doctor ordered. If you enjoy walking with your dog, I doubt there is a better cottage escape to be found in the UK??? Michael and Pat have pretty much covered all the angles, everything needed for a nice break is present and correct. Book a break at the Border RetrRead moreeat and you won't be disappointed Hide

The cottage was delightful with terrific scenery. The inside was very clean and you wouldn't know dogs were regular visitors. We had a great week there. It was a great base for touring the local area. For any visitors, use the instructions and not the postcode.

Perfect retreat for those who wish for some peace and quiet. Cosy cottage equipped with everything necessary for time away from home. You only need your personal items and food everything else is provided. The views are amazing with plenty of countryside to explore.

Excellent place to get away from it all and wind down, We had three seasons in three days, Arrived to standing snow & freezing fog (Winter) Overnight rain removed the snow (Spring) & our last day had blue sky & sunshine (Summer) Hope to go again.

Fantastic cottage , with amazing views. Town only 15 minuets away for supplies , but still get that great remote feel with walks right from your door step. Owners that live in the house behind are very helpful. If snow is forecast we would recommend snow chains or socks, as the road is uphill and doesnt get cleared.

Beautiful location, and the views from the cottage are simply stunning! The track from the village to the cottage is a bit hairy but well worth it! Extremely comfortable bed which is huge! Not a soul in sight so if you're looking for something quite and peaceful then Border retreat is perfect!
