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.

Perfect Perfect Perfect
We booked this holiday to celebrate a big birthday with no fuss, this house was perfect for our needs. Beautifully decorated with everything we needed. Sue and Steve were extremely helpful and even provided us with a generator when the power went down in the recent winds. The Garden has a lovely outside space for our aging Labrador and a sitting area for a glass of proscecco. We can not recommend this house highly enough, we both agreed we could happily live in it as it has such a lovely feel.

You cannot improve on perfection
This cottage is simply on another level , absolute perfection . We have been here a few hours into a weeks break and we feel so relaxed . Sue and Steve are lovely hosts. To quote my wife " I could actually live in here " I

Superb in every way
Beautiful, well situated find, starting with the extremely friendly owner's welcome, very generous welcoming gift basket, to the clean, very comfortable & surprisingly spacious accommodation, every single need was catered for. It was extremely well stocked, including an excellent, clean kitchen, warm & cosy throughout with plentiful hot water, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, there was an excellent fully enclosed garden with a generous patio & lawn & full access to the field boundaries on the farm which we respectfully used to walk our dogs.

Cosy cottage with private garden in a peaceful location
We had a wonderful stay at the Garden House. The cottage is equipped with every thing you could wish for and finished to a high standard (the pictures on the website really don't do it justice). The garden was private and perfect for anyone like us with a dog. Scotland and the Northumberland coast with it's magnificent beaches are both within easy reach and the village is a short walk for all your essentials. The owners live on the farm and were there to welcome us and give us some useful information for our stay. All in all a really pleasant stay.
