Customer Reviews of Glengabar,Peebles, sleeps 4
1st comment: Glengaber is a truly delightful cottage in a great location with everything a family or couple could want. We were especially pleased with all the little extras the owners included; they had really thought of everything. It’s one of the cleanest and most comfortable holiday lets weve had - we’ll definitely be back! Aug 2011.
2nd comment: Nice comfortable old stone cottage, homely touches like shortbread on a tea and coffee tray to greet you, and wild rabbits visiting the back lawn. I was initially concerned about the on-road parking on the main Edinburgh Road, outside neighbour’s home (the bus stop is outside our cottage), but our pleasant neighbour assured me that it’s fine parking outside their house. Road not as busy as I feared and all was well. I kept wing mirrors turned in. Handy garage and small shop almost opposite. Cottage all on one floor, but about 6 steps from road to front door. July 2011.
