“The Turkey House is a wonderful place to stay while exploring the Scottish Borders, Berwick-upon-Tweed, and St. Abb’s Head. It’s conveniently located, incredibly quiet, and a cozy place for relaxing at the end of the day. The house is on a small country road that’s perfect for strolling along. Jane is an outstanding host and provided all sorts of treats that we enjoyed during our stay. We recommend the Turkey House most highly!”

“We had a fantastic time here, it is so peaceful and quiet in the small village of Paxton, the local pub is just yards away, however the cottage is so cosy we found it difficult to leave other than going for walks around the area, even late at night it has such a nice feel to the place we felt totally at ease. Perfectly relaxing, exactly what we wanted. Also the contents of the welcome basket was much appreciated and very thoughtful, very nice touch. Thank you John and Christine.”

“Nesbit’s Tower was in a great location for exploring the coast and is an easy walk down to the harbour and town. It’s a shame that you can’t see the view from the property, but I imagine it would be lovely sitting looking over the harbour from the garden in the summer.”
