    Beautiful cottage in a beautiful isolated location. Unfortunately the property was not very clean and the communication before arrival was lacking.

    Not really suitable for children as cars speed past the front of the cottage

    Lovely cosy cottage with gorgeous views. Owner was really friendly checking we’d settled in ok. Great location (as long as you have car) to get to nearby towns and attractions. Shame there wasn’t a pub within walking distance (as the road was too risky to walk on at night), however, the food and staff at the local pub in Yetholm (approx 1.5mile) were lovely and welcoming and food great! The only criticism I’d have of the cottage is that the bathroom and some decor could do with updating, however this certainly didn’t spoil anything and gave it a quaint country charm! Despite this, I would definitely recommend the cottage and would stay again.

    We stayed at Avenel Cottage for a week with our dog and found it to be located in a very peaceful, beautiful part of the Scottish Borders and very dog friendly. The cottage is ideal for those who love to get way to experience peace and quiet and walk in the countryside. It is a very good location for visiting historical sites such as Dryburgh Abbey, Melrose, Smailhome Tower, Abbotsford and Kelso. We found the people who live in the area very friendly and welcoming. We found the cottage to be very comfortable and it has the most spectacular view over the loch. The kitchen was well supplied with utensils well enough to cook meals with no problem and there was plenty cupboard space for us to use. We used the washing machine and tumble dryer (located in a cupboard in the hall). Both being easy to use and effective. The fridge has a small freezer compartment but to make up for this there is a larger freezer in the barn. The main bedroom was surprisingly big with plenty of wardrobe space. For our part we had a good nights sleep in a very comfortable and clean bed. The view from the bedrooms is spectacular and a pleasure to wake up to. The bathroom was small but there is a good shower over the bath providing plenty of hot water. The cottage has a really good heating system and we would not hesitate to book up during the colder months as it would be very warm and cosy especially if the wood burning fire was used. The garden is enclosed which for us as dog owners is essential. It has a small courtyard leading to a wooded garden with a circular grass path. The garden attracts lots of different birds and butterflies. We enjoyed walking around it in the morning spotting the different species visiting the garden. We went out into the garden at dusk and saw bats flying around the tree tops. The garden is a little overgrown and would benefit from regular pruning. We used the back door to enter and exit the property. We definitely enjoyed our holiday at the cottage and hope to book again next year.

    The location of the cottage was amazing with plenty to see and a great selection of local amenities. Sadly there are a number of issues we would like to raise. As this falls below the standard of the cottages we have rented from yourselves in the past. The cleanliness of the property was well below standard, and my partner spent half of her first day at the property cleaning to an acceptable standard. 1. Kitchen: we found a finger nail in the kitchen drawer. The microwave was not clean. The fridge was also dirty. The cupboard door and kick board was missing. We felt as though everything had to be cleaned before use. 2. Bathroom: the bath had to be cleaned before we used it. There was a shower flower left along with used and unused shower and bath gels. The toilet seat was broken which the property manager knew of. I said this would not be a problem initially as we wanted to settle in but, never came to the property to fix the issue. 3. Living room: the dining room chair was broken and the stuffing of the cushion was hanging out. Paint on the floor We understand this is a country cottage as we are both from a farming background however, there were spiders webs and nest in the living room, kitchen and bedroom. 4. Hallway: the bottom of the spindles was thick with dust and had not been cleaned. Paint spots on the floor. 5. Bedrooms: the beds were broken. Spiders nest in the corner of the smallest front bedroom. Plaster coming off the walls. On our last day the neighbour to the property who is also the cleaner made us feel extremely uncomfortable as we packed our car. As they kept coming to the door and eventually sat on the door step waiting for our departure at 09:45 and our departure from the property was not until 10:00. This would be an amazing stay if the property was cleaned and well maintained. We would not stay again unless there was a total deep clean and upgrade to the property.

    We had a wonderful time at Avenel Cottage. It is in a gorgeous rural location in the Scottish Borders near Kelso. Warm, comfortable, dog friendly, just what we wanted.

    A lovely cottage to relax in. It has a homely atmosphere and was lovely and warm. The kitchen is adequately supplied. The bathroom A little small but clean. A good enclosed garden, though a little over grown but our dogs loved it. To wake up to the beautiful view and see the sun shining on the hills was an added bonus. We hope to return next year.

    Enjoyed our stay. Suggest the skylight in main room has a blind as in Summer you are awake at 4:30am. I am early riser but not that early. Surrounding area is beautiful, great for walking and if weather is poor there are attractions to go and visit.
