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 Customer service from Unique Cottages was excellent with all correspondence replied within 24 hours. Booking online was easy and any questions were quickly responded to. Many thanks for making this experience friendly and effortless.
The process of booking and paying for the cottage was very smooth, with a deposit paid initially, and then the remainder taken without any action needed from me. The website is easy to use and the Ts&Cs are (relatively) concise and easy to follow. My good housekeeping deposit was returned without me having to chase it. All in all a hassle free experience.
