St Boswells is another of the really pretty Border villages, some forty miles south of Edinburgh and lying between the A68 and the River Tweed, with a village green, pub/hotel, two or three small shops and an excellent bookshop/cafe.
It is one of these places that really tick the boxes ' a lovely situation, convenient for touring or relaxing, with excellent facilities both in the village itself and in the nearby town of Melrose (5 miles).
The Tweed, offering lovely riverside walks, is within a few minutes' walk. On its banks is a level, 9 hole golf course and directly opposite, accessible by a foot bridge, is lovely Dryburgh Abbey. St Cuthbert's Way (running from Melrose to Lindisfarne) passes through the village, as do regular buses to Edinburgh.
The house was really beautiful and cosy. The area was amazing and wonderful. We loved the kitchen because everything what we needed to cook for 10 adults was there. The only thing that I can complain is, that the housekeeper, Mr. McAlistear, was´t answering to my E-mails and phone calls. But a nice woman from unique Cottages helped me out. At the end it was an amarzing and unforgetable vacation for my whole Family. PS: To find the house was a little bit difficult. Maybe you can improve the directions.
I have used this company before and will do again. The online system is good and easy to use. When I have needed to contact a person this has been easy to do and they were helpful. They can be paid via several methods including cheque by post which is important for me. The credit card charge is however excessive in my view. All cottages have a housekeeping deposit which I am not so keen on.
