Beautifully situated beside a pretty river wending its way through the lovely Borders town of Peebles, only 20 miles from Edinburgh.
This cosy mid terrace holiday cottage is the perfect spot for a peaceful holiday watching the ducks or as a base from which to enjoy the city and the excellent hill walking nearby. Wide variety of pubs and restaurants, interesting local shops, art galleries and craft shops in walking distance.

Customer Reviews of Riverbank Cottage, Peebles - sleeps 2/3
1st comment: A lovely cottage by the river and right next to town. Ideal for two people and trips to Edinburgh and the surrounding countryside are easy to do. March 2012.
2nd comment: Fantastic location, lovely river view. Very quiet even though you are close to town center and shops. Oct 2011.
3rd comment: The cottage has everything you need and is clean and comfortable. There is a lovely view of the river and resident ducks from the living room, which is on the first floor of this characterful cottage. We loved the cottage - it was our second stay - and we love Peebles - and we will return. Oct 2011.
4th comment: Both my husband and I absolutely loved our stay at Riverbank cottage, situated in the heart of the town, and so convenient for local shops etc. Some previous guests have mentioned the church bells, but we didn’t find them too bothersome. Would certainly consider this cottage for another holiday in the area. Sept 2011.
5th comment: This is a delightfully cosy cottage on the banks of Eddleston Water just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Peebles. Simply but comfortably furnished it makes a delightful base for touring the locality. The neighbours are very friendly and the local ducks frequently congregate on the lawn. Some visitors commented adversely on the chiming of the bells from early morning to late evening but we found that they quickly became no more than background sounds. Other than this the cottage is in a delightfully quiet corner. Sept 2011.
6th comment: Just a 3 minute stroll from the High street, yet quiet and peaceful with "the cuddy" flowing by the front garden. We enjoyed walks along the river Tweed to Neidpath Castle and further afield. The cottage was cosy and well equipped, including local guidebooks - always appreciated! Particularly suited to early risers as the cathedral bells start up at 7 a.m. even on weekends. July 2011.
