“Delightfully relaxing”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at the Goose Cotts for a week and it was perfect. Quiet, relaxing, more than comfortable and the perfect base to walk, cycle and drink coffee.

Thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting the above. We are already booking to go back in October 2014. Since coming back family members have stayed and also booked again. It's perfect.

“Wow, can't recommend highly enough!”

Myself, my husband and another couple booked The Granary for the three nights commencing the 20th June. We were fortunate to score an amazingly hot weekend (although I don't think we can give Dukes Farm the credit for that bit).
What we can give them credit for:
Beautiful clean property.
Fully equipped kitchen.
Spotless Wet room with a superb shower (plus additional WC).
Comfy beds (waking up three mornings in a row without back ache really was a treat!).
Terrace which offered stunning views of the hills.
Little extras - what they called the 'Boot Room' contained a washing machine, landline telephone (there is not any mobile phone signal anywhere on the farm, which was actually quite liberating), dvd's, books & hangover cures.
There was a hand drawn map of the farm, all of which you were free to explore, along with an OS map of the the area for your use.
The owners Ken & Ruth were both very friendly and really made you feel welcome in their home. The area is a walkers paradise and they were able to advise plenty of walking ideas, as they have done most of them themselves.
We were the only guests staying on the property that weekend, so we had the terrace to ourselves and took the liberty of having a little nose into the other cottages, all looked equally lovely.
We visited 'The Bridge Inn' on the Sunday, which seemed very pleasant, we only had a couple of drinks but the food that was being delivered to other tables smelt and looked tasty. Be warned getting from the pub to the farm is not quite as easy as the other way around, there is a bit of uphill involved. However on a sunny day it is a perfect place to sit and enjoy a beer by the river. They were also advertising live music for the Friday night.
For couples, or family's, If you are looking for a relaxing break in beautiful surroundings then I would highly recommend Dukes Farm.

“A perfect base for a mid borders break!”

The fantastic owners have thought of everything you would want rather than everything you would need and it makes a huge difference! Whatever your plans are for the borders this is a perfect place to launch from; but take some time to enjoy the space they've worked so hard on, I am certain you'll love as much as we did!

“Superb”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Beautiful converted barns with very tasteful decor and extremely comfortable beds! Ken and Ruth are natural hosts and made the stay very relaxing and enjoyable. Can't think of anything negative to say!

“Well equipped tranquil stay”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Just returned from a long weekend at Dukes Farm. The barn has everything you might possibly need. Ruth even left a baby bath and changing mat out for us. We don't normally go back to the same place but it will be difficult not to return for a third visit!
