“Exceptional and exceeding every anticipated comfort.”
Reviewed 30 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Planning your Scottish holiday from faraway New Zealand could always prove a " hit or miss " affair, you being fully reliant on the Property webpage and guest endorsements. Our selection of Babington's Cottage situated at Coldstream in the Borders proved a winner. This beautifully decorated and totally equipped Cottage, so typical of the region, was a prefect base for our 2 weeks in Scotland. The Cottage views across the sweeping countryside gave you every reason to want to explore this wonderful part of Scotland, knowing that a warm and so comfortable " Home " awaited your return. The ready access to Edinburgh and the North and West, or back over the Border, see the Cottage as being in the ideal location. For a couple or family this Cottage will tick all the boxes, and ensure your stay in Scotland is truly memorable. Recommended.

“Excellent Holiday Accommodaion”
Reviewed 20 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I have recently enjoyed my 5th holiday at Babingtons Cottage in the Scottish Borders. I highly recommend it as it is quiet and peaceful and has stunning views to the Cheviot Hills with lovely gardens. As there are 2 Sitting Rooms with excellent central heating and log fires in both Rooms, it is very cosy with most comfortable sofas and chairs. There is plenty of hot water in all three bathrooms and kitchen and most comfortable beds for 8 people. A local excellent professional cook has catered for our family and friends over the years. The dogs love being here and there is the most up to date efficient kitchen with a splendid electric Everhot Range. I cant wait to return for my next pre-booked holiday.

“Thoroughly pleasant and enjoyable”
Reviewed 28 November 2012 for a stay in August 2012

A very clean, tidy, spacious but cosy cottage with beautiful views to the cheviot hills and within easy walking distance to the River Tweed. We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I recommend it to anyone visting the Scottish Borders either for a familiy vacation or for a week of golf and fishing. Will be returning next year...
