    We took 2 dogs with us and the cottage was absolutely perfect for the dogs. The cottage was extremely well appointed and immaculate. The kitchen had good quality utensils and equipment and every detail had been thought of. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of storage for clothes etc The shower downstairs was fabulous, great flow and pressure. location was ideal for us for both coasts and local towns. The hosts were extremely friendly and gave us home grown vegetables and eggs.

    A lovely cottage in an interesting part of Scotland. Edinburgh is only a short trip on the train from Tweedbank. The local micro brewery and gin distillery at Born in the Borders is also worth a visit.

    Greenknowe cottage has been well thought out to provide superb holiday accommodation in a quiet rural location. It is perfect set up for you and your pooch. Short drive in either direction to the historic towns of Jedburgh, Melrose, Kelso and Galashiels. The owner goes the extra mile with wee treats to add to the larder. The Scottish Borders are a must visit and Greenknowe a very pleasant cottage to rest your self at the end of a busy day. You can sit in the patio with your favourite tipple and relax in an evening in the glow of the fairy lights.

    A perfect week in a lovely cottage. Kelso and Melrose are close by and beautiful towns. The bookshop in St Boswell is a must to visit - new books, great food and coffee to die for.

    We had a delightful 7 days here in a very well appointed cottage in the lovely tranquil setting of Longnewton. We chose this cottage due to its central location of places we wanted to visit, in and around Melrose, Jedburgh, Hawick and Selkirk. It did not disappoint and we have enjoyed days out walking in excellent rolling countryside and in fine summer weather. Thank-you to Karen for providing a great cottage here in the Borders area of our country.

    My wife and I stayed for a week. The cottage is spacious, comfortable and very well-equipped. It is in a quiet rural location but within easy reach of Border towns, with many other attractions within one hours drive. The welcome pack with Selkirk Bannock was appreciated and Karen, the owner, was a mine of information if needed. Parking, often an issue, was excellent, right outside the door. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in recommending Greenknowe Cottage. NB - although not advertised the cottage has a washing machine.

    The cottage looked almost new and everything was there when we arrived. Problems with the oven but it was sorted out within 24 hours. Our dog also enjoyed the 2 enclosed gardens to either run about in or to just laze in the sunshine. Would come back again

    We had a lovely week staying at Greenknowe Cottage. It is extremely comfortable and well equipped. Karen made us very welcome and we really appreciated the thoughtful provision of home -grown fruit, vegetables and eggs as well as the Selkirk bannock. The location is peaceful yet convenient for all the local towns and walks and during our stay we visited some beautiful properties and gardens all no more than an hour’s drive away - Abbotsford, Floors Castle, Mellerstain, Monteviot, Jedburgh and Melrose Abbeys and more. The Northumberland coast is also only about an hour away. We highly recommend the cottage and hope to return there.

    An ideal cottage with a very friendly and helpful owners who were on hand to provide any information on the area. Dog facilities excellent with a secure fenced play area, all local minor roads are quite and have wide verges to walk on. This cottage provides an excellent base from which to explore the Scottish Borders Area with its many historic sites. Overall a perfect holiday location

    We found Greenknowe Cottage very well equipped and clean and well laid out. It's in a very quiet rural location, but not far off the A68 and is well positioned to visit all the Borders Town and amenities quickly. Owner is very helpful and we appreciated the complimentary Selkirk Bannock which kicked off our holiday in the Borders very well! Thoroughly recommend Greenknowe for families and couples wanting an outdoor rural location but within easy reach of amenities in Melrose/Galashiels. Property is very comfortable and well appointed and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
