“Perfect location, lovely cottage. Excellent for mobility problems.”
Reviewed 19 November 2011 for a stay in September 2011

I stayed in Rattra Cottage with my husband and my parents who are both in the 70s, for a week in Sept 2011. My mum has breathing problems so we were concerned about location. Turned out that it was perfect! Just a short stroll out from cottage to main road - right opposite Broughton House - turned to the right and we had MacLellan's Castle on one side and the harbour on the other.

The cottage itself was perfect. We had the upstairs room with large king-size bed and separate bathroom which had lots of light. Parents had downstairs room and small shower room. Heard no complaints! They only climbed the stairs once on arrival to check the place out then didn't have to worry about it. Mum loved the sun room. Dad was comfy in the lounge. And we spent lots of time in the evening sitting around the table in the kitchen with a takeaway from Polar Bites, the excellent fish and chip shop by the harbour, and some wine and a chat. Neighbours were friendly and didn't seem to worry that my husband had a hackney-style taxi parked outside the cottage (plenty of room set aside for turning, by the way, so no need to reverse in).

The town itself was better than I had hoped. The shops were quaint and pretty. The Selkirk Arms Hotel was excellent value for food and drink (and always great quality and service). The Masonic Arms pub was really spacious and welcoming and we came third in a very busy pub quiz! ...And that bookshop next to the Cooperative was amazing. I brought home two bags of brand new, good-priced books :)

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and was a perfect break for all of us, particularly as my parents had hardly left their own house all year - they walked around town like they'd found a new lease of life!
