Customer Reviews of Girnick Cottage, Kelso, sleeps 5
1st comment: Love the cottage and garden, nice quiet location, hope to visit again. Sept 2011.
2nd comment: Beautiful location, a real home from home. Sept 2011.
3rd comment: The cottage was warm and comfortable with lovely fresh flowers and a welcome pack. A lovely place to relax and enjoy the lovely and peaceful surroundings. July 2011.
4th comment: This Cottage was excellent in every way - with personal touches which were much appreciated. The owners were very welcoming and had lots of literature in the cottage for all tastes and we found these most useful. The enclosed garden was perfect for our Border Terrier. This was our first hoiday in the Borders, but we would certainly recommend the area and definitely hope to go back to Girnick Cottage. It is well situated for both country walks, visiting some beautiful Houses and Gardens, and our ride over lovely moors to North Berwick only took us 1 hour. Perfect cottage for a week’s holiday, or even a short break. July 2011.
5th comment: Excellent location. So many country houses, gardens and historical places of interest within a twenty mile radius. Cottage very private and peaceful without being remote. Accommodation very clean and comfortable without being ’fussy’. May 2011.
6th comment: The property is well out of town, just off the road on a track. Itis comfortable and very private with a lovely garden, I saw a rabbit in the garden a couple of mornings. It is well enclosed for children or dogs. There was pots of hot water and plenty of heating to keep warm if needed. No mobile phone reception but I view that as a good thing! April 2011.
