“An outstanding cottage in beautiful countryside - heavenly!”
Reviewed 18 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

From booking to farewell, the cottage's owner couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. The cottage is fitted out and equipped superbly and the standards of cleanliness and attention to detail are fantastic. The views from the property are gorgeous, and overall it's perfect for those who love to get away from it all but love their comforts! As well as the beautiful bedrooms, the cottage is very well endowed with several living spaces, so guests can "do their own thing" as well as enjoy communal activities.
We didn't know this area of Scotland at all well but found Deloraineshiel a perfect base for exploring the lovely Scottish Borders.

“paradise found”
Reviewed 4 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My wife and I have been traveling to Scotland for a holiday every year since 2002. We always rent a cottage for ourselves and our dog. Several have been okay and a couple were good. This is the first one that is outstanding. Everything about it is perfect for us. The remote location, the secure garden, the lack of light pollution and the well equipped house. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

“A perfect place to chill out”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Peace perfect peace. Just us and the sheep and clean Scottish air. A welcome pack and lots of condiments and herbs provided for our stay should we wish to use the amazing kitchen facilities.
If, like me, you are a reader the conservatory is light and comfortable and inviting.
No need for extra layers with two log burners and central heating.
Hawick only 15 minutes away with major super markets and quirky shops.
For rest and recuperation this is hard to beat. Midge McGee

“Absolutely brilliant”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I highly recommend this cottage. The house looks fantastic, has everything you need. We felt like home away from home. Beds are really comfortable, the kitchen was big and modern, and I personally loved the little conservatory facing the garden. Brilliant to chill and gaze at the views.
Really quiet, in the middle of nowhere.

“A very good place for workstressed people”

The house is spacious and still cosy. Many extra points for the conservatory with many glass windows, and the big deck.
The view on the Scottish hills is fabulous.
For shopping you have to do some riding, to Hawick or Peebles, but especially Peebles is worth a visit.
The air is pure (no dirty nails). Internet and wifi are weak, so you can always give that as excuse for your lack of reaction.

Thanks for your feeback, we are glad you enjoyed the fresh air and views! Unfortunately British Telecom have not been very helpful and they won't invest in upgrading our internet line. We are currently investigating satellite broadband internet as an alternative and will let you know the result of that. We know that even those of us who want to get away from it all still expect reliable, always on wifi. Also, we got a new frying pan for your sausages next time you visit! :)
