“Fantastic - best place to stay in the Scottish Borders!”
Reviewed 7 June 2013 for a stay in February 2013

My husband and I had the most fantastic stay at Kersmains in February this year. Ashley and Simon welcomed us with open arms and the accommodation was spacious, very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed going for walks straight from the cottage and spent most of the week exploring the area. The cottage is in a great location which is so peaceful but only a very short drive to Kelso.

We would both highly recommend Kersmains to our friends and family, in fact we already have several times! We have also booked another stay in October. Couldn't have wished for more, thank you to Ashley and Simon for being such great hosts!
