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.
I have booked with Unique several times before & this is the first time we have been disappointed. Larkhill cottage is in a lovely setting with views over looking farm land. Lovely & quiet with far reaching views.The interior of this cottage is in need of updating.Walls need painting & a good clean to all area's.We did not mind that the garden lawn needed cutting, as the owners lawn mower had broken down. I have never been one to complain if the furnishings to a holiday cottage are dated.I draw a line when i have to start & clean a cottage before i unpacked. The only reason i did not complain to Unique cottages was, my husband did not want this to spoil our holiday.This is the first time i have ever given a cottage this kind of review .We were on a tour of Scotland & used Unique cottages for 2 of these weeks. The first cottage we rented was excellent, Larkhill did not meet the tittle of being a unique holiday cottage
