My husband, myself and our small dog stayed here over new year, we loved everything about it, we both have very busy jobs so just wanted to totally chill for a few days and we did, we even managed star gazing on New Year's Eve at midnight it was beautiful not seen anything like it. Joanne and gordan are the friendliest people, greeted us and made sure our stay was pleasant. Can't fault any of it, had a perfect romantic quiet few days, can't wait to go back
We tend to holiday in the UK, and have rented holiday cottages up and down the country. We have now stayed at Petty Knowes Cottage on 3 occasions and have loved it every time. It is, by far, our favourite holiday rental.
Situated in beautiful countryside, at the top of a hill, the location is perfect and the owners, Gordon and Joanne, could not make you more welcome. The property is very tastefully decorated, comfortable and well equipped. Most holiday rentals have poorly equipped kitchens, not so at Petty Knowes, where they even provide an expresso coffee maker! A welcome picnic basket and bottle of wine are provided, and you will also find shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and moisturizer in the bathroom, which has a fantastic walk-in shower.
There is a hot tub and sauna for the guests to use, and the recent addition of the "gin room" gives an extra space in which to relax. The real fire is very cozy on cold winter evenings.
There are some good National Trust properties nearby, and the Scottish border is only a short drive away, making the cottage a great base to use whilst exploring the surrounding area. The fact that we've stayed there 3 times (so far) and have always found plenty of things to do, shows that the location is perfect.
I have recommended Petty Knowes to some friends, and they have now stayed there twice, and are planning a third trip. What more recommendation do you need?!!
I could go on and on and on, but I will finish by saying, go find out for yourselves, you won't be disappointed. (Dogs are welcome too).

We stayed here a while back now - didn't know they were on trip advisor at the time. But what an amazing little cottage!
On arrival Joanne and Gordon the owners were lovely and very welcoming, we arrived very late due to bad traffic and they had put a few nibbles out for us which was a lovely touch. As it was my birthday they also did a little birthday package. Everything you could need was in the cottage to make it home from home.
Sitting in the hot tub in an evening with a clear outlook around you and starry skies makes the experience even better.
Couldn't have asked for anything more, and if I had felt the need to I'm sure it would have been accommodated.
It's a very rural location which is what we were after for a quiet romantic break away, nice walks and villages nearby to see. But not to long to get to bigger towns.
Overall it was a fabulous weekend we had here and we will be back in the near future.
We have been twice now, the stay was fantastic both times. It's great to get away from it all and stay in a lovely relaxing and quiet location. Great for dogs and pubs/shop a short drive from cottage. View was amazing, welcome pack and information provided in the guest book was fab! The owners are lovely too. Can't recommend enough. Looking forward to our next visit :)
