Customer Reviews of Thistle Cottage, Scottish Borders - Sleeps 4
1st comment: Property is of a good condition. Liked the roof top decking which will be lovely in good weather. The cottage is rather remote, no shops close by there is a pub nearby which does serve food however was closed when we were there. April 2012.
2nd comment: Owner of the cottage was very helpful and accommodating. Garden is very good size and safe for your dogs to play in. Central location for day trips to other places. March 2012.
3rd comment: Even though it was close to our home town. It was a welcome break and felt as if we were truly on holiday. The welcome pack was an added surprise. The cottage was warm and welcoming and although set in a quiet location there was easy access to Berwick and other towns. People very friendly. Nov 2011.
4th comment: We enjoyed our stay at Thistle Cottage with our dogs. The garden was well fenced and secure so we had no worries there, and we enjoyed eating in the conservatory. The range-style cooker was very efficient and I much preferred it to my own! Sept 2011.
5th comment: Lovely cottage in quiet village. Pub, 200 yards away, friendly & food cooked to order. Oct 2011.
6th comment: We really enjoyed our stay at Thistle Cottage, the owners had left chocolates and a bottle of wine as a welcome gift which we thought was lovely, We found the cottage very clean and comfortable and the local people so very freindly. The Plough Hotel (Steak House) 300 yards from the cottage served excellent food and a good pint! Aug 2011.
