Brilliant welcome with bread, milk, homemade jam and marmalade, eggs, butter, cake... You know you're in the country when you get a hare and not a rabbit nibbling the lawn. Great location; with a rapid EV charger down in the car park in Selkirk
What can I say that isn't in the title. A beautifully finished cottage in a great location. Everything you need for a short break or longer stay. Lovely welcome by Alison the owner and some gifts to start you off, bread, milk, chocolates and the fire was on. A perfect little place and we will return.
This was such a beautiful place, very comfortable.
A lovely friendly welcome from Alison, the log burner was lit and there was enough in the welcome pack to feed us breakfast for a few days.
It was lovely to look out at countryside and see birds on the feeders in the garden, we even saw a young hare!
The location was very convenient for us too.
We were between homes, having just sold our previous house but not yet moved into our new home, and needed some rest and recuperation from the stresses of moving and Dairy Cottage met those requirements perfectly.
It is a beautiful, roomy and tastefully decorated little cottage and perfect for two people which, if you have ever tried to find self catering accommodation just for two people, is a five star rating in itself!
The owners, Brian and Alison, are welcoming, friendly and helpful and provided a useful welcome pack of basics in the kitchen for our arrival.
The Cottage is part of the owners', Brian and Alison, house but with its own separate main door entrance, parking, and use of a lovely small garden area with a couple of benches for sitting outside and enjoying the southerly aspect in an afternoon or evening.
There is a small wood burning stove in the combined lounge/kitchen which adds to the cosy country cottage character of the place and with a plentiful supply of logs and kindling courtesy of Brian even in August we couldn't resist lighting most nights!
It is located in peaceful farming countryside only 3 miles from Selkirk and also perfectly located for exploring all the other main Border towns - Galashiels, Melrose, Kelso, and Hawick - and even Berwick and Lindisfarne are only about 1 hours drive away. There are many easy local walks to explore the countryside from the Cottage as well as the walks in the countryside around the other towns.
All in all a great place for a restful countryside break in the beautiful countryside of the Scottish Borders.
Dairy Cottage was absolutely lovely. Set in lovely countryside it was peaceful and relaxing.
Alison and Brian were great hosts and had made sure that Dairy Cottage was a real home from home. They made sure that milk, bread etc were available and Alison presented us with a large bowl of fresh strawberries and raspberries which we thoroughly enjoyed.
Dairy Cottage is a good base from which to enjoy the Scottish Borders.
Thank you both. We will certainly be returning and would certainly recommend Dairy Cottage as the perfect retreat.
