Two grandparents, four parents and five children (17,13,10,8,and 7) spent a wonderful week together in the Big Hoose. Enough space so that several activities could go on simultaneously - in the drawing room, snug, pool room, and the emirate-sized bedrooms; grand enough to elicit the wow factor and in excellent decorative order, but not in such a way as to make us feel inhibited or not at home. It was reassuring to discover the fire alarm was fully operational in response to smoking bacon. Dianne gave us the warmest of welcomes was a fount of knowledge and advice about local atractions and facilities, but not in the least intrusive. We had someone come in to give us a 'fine dining' experience on our last evening - ask Dianne for adivice on who to use. The Borders had lots to offer us all. It was a holiday we hope we might repeat, though next time we'll be more careful with the bacon!

“Highly recommend”
Reviewed 7 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Booked The Big Hoose for a week to celebrate my 50th birthday with my family. Was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. It was more than we could have hoped for. The photos on the website really don't do it justice. Dianne gave us a lovely welcome and throughout the week she couldn't do enough for us X she definitely went over and above to make sure we had a good stay. Can't recommend it enough - just perfect!

I went with my elderly parents, we had a warm greating and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. Directions were great and very easy to book direct with them. They showed us around the house and all it's workings. The owners live on sight but we didnt need to contact them about anything. Kitchen well equipt. Room were nicely furbished and very comfortable. Bathroom clean but would recommend a shower non slip mat. Lounge area spacious but the internet tv took some working out but that could be me as i live in America.
I would defently be back and recomend to others would be great for a Golfing group as there is many golf course in the area if they wanted self catering.
