4/5 Good

Quaint cottage.
A lovely cottage with parking outside . We thoroughly enjoyed our stay . The stairs aren’t the best for older guests but that’s the style of cottage and we just took our time . The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing stay. We ate out so we didn’t use many of the kitchen facilities. We didn’t use the wood burning stove as the cottage was nice and warm with the heating. Comfy,bed ensured good nights sleep . Melrose is a delightful town , so friendly and great independent shops, and plenty of good eating places. Would definitely visit again. Many Thanks Pam & Michael 🥰
