Perfect.. a true hidden gem
Perfect retreat with everything you need. Cottage is warm, cosy, a great place to explore this beautiful area and coastline. There is a co op in the village for essentials, but what makes this property stand out is the way it is lovingly looked after by the owners of the farm (Harelow). Sue and Steve welcomed us on arrival and any questions we had and information about the local area. Don?t be fooled by the outside on arrival as once you walk in, it's truly lovely. The fresh flowers and welcome basket of locally produced goods were a lovely touch. It's easy to see why so many people return to this cottage, as we will be doing again next year. It has a lovely enclosed safe garden for our dogs, and the walks on your doorstep are endless. Well equipped kitchen, even dishwasher and washing machine. If your looking for a peaceful retreat to get away from a busy life, then this is the one. Comfortable bed and nice hot shower. Honestly could go on and on. I know I?ll probably struggle to find something that compares in other uk cottage holidays. Places of interest (in the car).. Berwick upon tweed, about an hours drive from Edinburgh and our favourite was St Abbs, Coldingham bay and Eyemouth (the bakery there is superb!) We we're also blessed with perfect blue skies every day!

Not enough Superlatives to describe how wonderful
There are not enough superlatives to describe how wonderful the Garden House was - it had everything and more that you could possibly need or want down to lovely toiletries, thick soft towels and a super welcome basket The facilities were exceptional - we have stayed at many self catering cottages and never had a full size fridge and freezer, dishwasher and a washer dryer Sue and Steve were wonderful hosts, helpful and always avaialble, ready for a chat A super safe enclosed garden which our dog Molly enjoyed Plenty of walks nearby - just over 2 mile round trip to shops We cannot reccommend highly enough and hope to return one day

Fantastic cottage
Just returned from garden Cottage today. Sue was there to meet us on arrival which was lovely. A lovely hamper was left which had bread, butter, milk, porridge, honey, eggs and ground coffee. The cottage had everything you could need for a holiday. One of the best equipped cottage we've been to. The garden is gorgeous and perfect for dogs. Was up one morning at 4 o'clock and the stars were amazing. Even saw shooting stars. Something you miss in a city. Would 100% recommend this accommodation. Thank you Sue and Steve for a perfect stay.

Everything you could possibly need
Near to Berwick Upon Tweed in a farm setting. Beautiful little cottage clean, fresh & well equipped.definitely a home from home, could happily live there. Owners complying with COVID-19 guidelines which is reassuring. Enclosed garden is perfect for sitting in or letting your furry friend have a mooch. Village centre is a short walk although the cottage is on a busy road there is a grassy footpath. Brilliant area for walkers,cyclists & runners. Footpaths are well marked & signposted Berwick upon tweed free parking but have to buy a parking disc for parking zones £1 initial payment ...lasts forever. Regular trains to & from berwick to Edinburgh save the hassle of driving. Railway parking ?3.50 . St Abbs & Spittal both lovely beaches.Eyemouth not so nice.

One bedroom heaven on a farm in the Scottish Borders
Not too far from Berwick-upon-Tweed, just across the border into Scotland. Used to be home of the Jim Clarke display which has now moved to become a full museum in nearby Duns. Over the years we have stayed in many holiday locations and villa lets and none, other than the extremly expensive, have been as well equiped as The Garden House. It is dog friendly and looking at the visitors book we were the only booking for years that did not take our hound with us. Self catering but no need to take the staples for cooking; its all there on arrival.. Local Coop and Post Office/Newagent in the village; under 5 minutes in the car (a necessity) and 10 minutes to Duns, the nearest little town. Only gripe, free WiFi but BT TV is a little limited in its subscription (basic terestial and some sport). Fully fitted home from home; would like to have stayed longer; 2-3 weeks would have been perfect.. Plenty to do, easy reach to Edinburgh, Alnwick and the Cheviot Hills. Coastal views and beaches a must. Trips to Holy Island and the Farne islands when the weather is right. We had the sun every day when the forcast was for wall to wall rain. The owner thoughtfully provides a list of her top-ten recommentde local restaurants and some take away and home delivery recommendations.
