    We have just returned from a wonderful break at Drakes Cottage. The cottage is beautifully presented, equipped with everything you need. Biggar is a short drive away for supplies. The owner was very helpful and we look forward to returning. Would highly recommend

    What a wonderful cottage, which was very roomy for the 5 of us that was attending a wedding at the nearby Cornhill Castle. I would recommend this beautiful cottage to anyone who may want to get together with family or friends, the views are wonderful, even watching the cows in the barn while washing the dishes:-)

    Beautiful cottage in a beautiful part of the country. Every thing you look for in a country cottage was there. Extremely suitable for a wheelchair with everything on the one level. We’ll definitely book again.

    A first holiday with our daughter,husband and 8 month old twins.We had a great time. A warm welcome from our hosts . The facilities were just perfect.3 ensuites came in very handy.Babies settled in well in the travel cots.Open plan living area very useful the wood burner kept everywhere cosy and warm at the end of the day. Views lovely and local strolls.Easy reach to Edinburgh and Glasgow and Biggar useful for topping up essentials and good local food. A lovely week with great autumn colour.Made us keen to return in the spring to see the lambs.
