Customer Reviews of Mill Cottage, Scottish Borders, sleeps 4
1st comment: The cottage was very comfartable and made us feel cosy and warm even though there was snow outside. March 2012.
2nd comment: This is a fantastic cottage! Tastefully furnished, well equipped and very comfortable. Whilst it may be next to a working sheep farm, it was very peaceful and we were never disturbed by farm machinery or animals. A quiet country location but very central for touring the Borders area, East Coast, Northumberland and in particular Edinburgh. The nearest park and ride facility was a mere 15 minutes away by car and what a great city to visit! We are planning to stay at this property again and would highly recommend. Aug 2011.
3rd comment: This cottage was excellent in tranquil surroundings, although only 20 minutes drive from Edinburgh and within reach of many interesting locations. Aug 2011.
