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 cottage was comfortable and welcoming on our arrival. We were provided with very good quality bedding and towels and the bathrooms were well equipped if in need of a little uipdating. The kitchen was a really good size but we could have done with more in the way of equipment, for instance preperation bowls and oven proof dishes.
I had a few questions about the property and received prompt and helpful responses from the team. Thanks especially to Rhianne. The details for payment and arriving at the property were clear. The security deposit was refunded the week after our return.
