Absolutely brilliant place to stay 39 miles south of Edinburgh 38 miles west of Lindesfarne Loads of Local stuff to see Melrose Abbey, Jedburgh the list goes on ..... The Accommodation was very good Everything you need is there to hand ...Traveled with my Husband & daughters 20 & 18. . Bedrooms are spacious & comfortable, the Kitchen is very well equipped for anything you may need to prepare . On arriving a friendly neighbour pointed us in the right direction to our front door ( not obvious from where you are required to leave the car ) My only gripe is the two x two seater sofas in the lounge could do with renewing .... They are a little too low & aren't that comfortable to sit on for longer than 30 mins ( just my view ) as i have hip problems & arthritis but my 20 year old daughter ( with no health problems ) did comment on it too even though i said nothing . I'd definately stay here again :)

My wife and I wanted somewhere fairly central in the Borders. We were familiar with St. Boswells so this looked ideal. The cottage is well equipped, warm and welcoming. Everything that you might need is to hand. The kitchen is well equipped and stocked with basics for your arrival. The lounge is comfortable. The bedrooms are comfortable and having a toilet and shower / bath on both floors is very handy. The cottage is well placed for all local tourist attractions - all of the abbeys, the Tweed and the beautiful border towns. The neighbours are friendly and helpful. The village post office is handy - as is the excellent Buccleuch Arms - which shouldn't be passed by. Excellent accommodation.

It was a beautiful cottage. It was like home away from home.
Mrs Guceri

Kennels cottage was so convenient to visit our friends and close to Edinburgh. We took the new Borders train into Edinburgh which worked well. Lovely spot and the house is perfect for our needs.
Mrs Howson

Kennels Cottage was very comfortable. It was very central for the shops, buses and walks.
