We stayed for two nights, a last minute getaway. I can honestly say it was wonderful. The accommodation consisted of two bedrooms and a sitting room. It was extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty and Penny was a complete delight, a wonderful hostess and an all round lovely person.

We stayed at the end of August for a wedding near by. The whole stay was wonderful - Penny was welcoming and a real giggle. Everything was as you'd hope for - clean bathroom with a decent shower, a comfy bed, brilliant breakfasts and a sparky host who will go out of her way to help you with whatever you... More

We are friends of the owners of Duns Castle locally and because they had an event at their castle, a 50th birthday weekend for a group of Americans and every single room was taken plus all of the cottages, we couldn't stay with them as we normally do - so we went in search of a local B n B...

What a delight it was to stay at this BandB -to have the whole top floor to ourselves was so relaxing. The rooms and stairs are full of the most amazing paintings. We attended a wedding at Wedderburn Castle and I am sure Penny's BandB is the only place to stay in Duns. Penny is a azing.

We stayed two nights in order to attend a wedding at Wedderburn Castle, which is nearby. Penny was extremely kind and helpful, giving us useful advice on transport, and cooking us a delicious breakfast each morning. She was also very understanding when we arrived later than scheduled.

My husband and I stayed at Penny's B and B for three nights, whilst we attended a wedding at Wedderburn Castle. It is in the main square in Dunns and was very clean, amazing breakfast and outstanding service. Nothing was too much trouble. By the time we left, we felt part of the family. We would definitely recommend.
