“The Perfect Family holiday”

My brother, sister and I booked this house for a week away to celebrate my Mum's 70th birthday. With a mixture of adults, teenagers and children in our group there was something to keep us all happy and we had a wonderful time. The pool and hot tub were lovely and warm and were checked everyday by Alison's dad, Ian. He met us when we arrived, showed us how everything worked and was a pleasure to deal with. The fact that he checked the water in the pool and hot tub every morning was reassuring and he was never intrusive. There are rules and guidelines in the house on how to use the pool and tub properly in order to keep the water clean and we made sure we followed them - the house is so lovely, why wouldn't you?
The kitchen was extremely well equipped. Cooking on the Aga was a challenge as we don't have one at home but there was also a normal oven so we managed fine and cooked a large meal for us all every evening. It was lovely having a dining table big enough to seat us all and we ate together there every night.
The bedrooms were lovely and spacious and having so many bathrooms was a bonus. The living room was also spacious and comfortable and there were tons of books and games for all ages.
The surrounding countryside was perfect, in fact the views all around the house were gorgeous. We fell asleep to the sound of owls hooting and awoke to nothing but birdsong. I can't remember the last time I felt so relaxed.
This house probably exceeded our expectations and allowed us to have quality family time together. We all said we would love to go back. I'd like to thank Alison for being so very helpful at the time of booking, and I'd like to thank Ian for being so helpful whilst we were there.

We rented this house out for a party of 14 girls on a hen weekend and it was perfect! The house is quite hard to find so leave plenty of time for arriving! The house itself is beautiful and very clean, the pool and hot tub are kept very well and the views are amazing! The house is quite close to Chirnside that has a shop for supplies and we took a trip into Berwick upon Tweed that took about 15 minutes in the car. In addition, the owners of the house were so helpful and friendly from the start. Great house, great location, highly recommended.

“wasted weekend by the owner”
Reviewed 2 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

house is absolutely brilliant couldn't fault it accept its a bit hard to find. However the thing that wastes it for this property is the owner. we had a full group of 20 of is and we are in mid 20s. we spilled drinks in the hallway (which is a cream carpet...i know cream in a hall, says it all) and the owners over reacted to how expensive it was to clean it. Most of the carpets were stained as they are cream and you would expect this in a holiday home. the owners took £300 to clean the carpets and additional cleaner. we cleaned the house as best we could and they hire 3 cleaners for 4 hours so if they can't tidy the house and clean it within that time then they need to hire new cleaners. all in all great property, pain to get to, pain to deal with owners. next time its butlins

Stephen, I am absolutely disgusted with this response. The stains that you left on our carpets took more than a week to remove, the mess that your group left in the house was disgusting to the point where my cleaners nearly walked out. To say that you cleaned the best you could is laughable. Only once have I had a group make more mess. It was a pain to deal with me? Really? I think that Butlins would be more suitable for your group.

“Fantastic Hen weekend”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

We rented this fabulous house for the weekend and were delighted with the facilities - unfortunately the sauna was out of use but it did not spoil our enjoyment of the hot tub, BBQ and lovely swimming pool. Difficult to find the house though and sat nav took everyone in a different direction but once there, we enjoyed every moment. Lovely large lounge and kitchen, ideal for socialising.
All in all, a fantastic time was had by all but lack of communication from the owner at this time (due to personal understandable circumstances) made the organising of the hen do a slightly stressful .

“Fabulous house in lovely countryside”
Reviewed 10 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Great large house for group of people - whether family or friends it caters for all.
Excellent facilities - from outdoor hot-tub, indoor pool & sauna to the large kitchen and log Fire.
Set in beautiful countryside close to a small village and main roads - slightly difficult to find as the final travel direction ie the sign For the house itself isn't there but all in all a fabulous place to stay.
