“Wonderful weekend ”
Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Just returned home from a wonderful weekend in this beautiful cottage. It was a real home from home set in the peaceful Scottish countryside. Jean was very welcoming and we enjoyed the homemade shortbread biscuits. The cottage was clean, warm and spacious with lovely bathroom and ensuite. The kitchen had everything we needed including some essentials such as tea/coffee/sugar. It was an ideal base for us to visit our friends in Biggar, we had a lovely day out in Peebles for the Highland games and a visit to Moffat.
Our dog, Monty, loved meeting Anna the dog too! Thanks for a lovely stay and for Monty's toy! We'll be back.

Management Response
18 Aug 2016
It's a shame you didn't mention any of these issues over the 5 nights you stayed as we would have tried our best to sort them out.
IAs a gesture I have sent you a refund of £50 but not the £200 you demanded.

“Needs updated.”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The couple that own the property are lovely, but we we're left sat outside the property for two hours before we decided to just go in and look for a number to call them.
The advert says four bathrooms but there is two.
The sofa is so uncomfortable and needs replaced. As does the mattress on the double bed.
There was a problem with the boiler which Jean did get fixed as soon as possible.

Jean makes her own shortbread which was really nice..
