Returned for a second year to this beautiful location. Fantastic views from the cottage, beautiful walks straight from the door and loads to see and do both in the local area and further afield. The perfect base from which to totally relax and unwind. We enjoyed the woodburner and plentiful supply of logs -although the biomass boiler keeps the cottage so toasty and warm we didn't really need it!

The place was excellent a cosy little bolt hole close to Kelso would recommend to any couple looking to escape there city life, Maggie was most helpful and the surrounding country side and views were to die for. We would go back that says it all.

I stayed here with my husband and our dog and had the most lovely time! Archie and Maggie were friendly hosts who were always about if you needed them. Archie told us about a walk that loops around the farm which our dog loved! The cottage is very clean and cosy. It was too warm for the wood burner but this would be amazing to use in the winter. The garden was the best (URL HIDDEN) much larger than the pictures show and if you were lucky enough to get a sunny weekend this would be heaven! And the view from the bedroom...just go and experience it yourself! Thanks for a lovely stay :)

Had such a wonderful time at Maggie and Archie's cottage! We even ended up staying an extra day. The setting is gorgeous with incredible views from the bedroom. They really went out of their way to make sure we had a great time, advised us on places to visit, walks to go on, and were just extremely helpful. They even left us a lovely bottle of wine to welcome us with. I couldn't recommend staying here more, and also take a walk around their farm as it is stunning. I definitely think we will be returning to visit again. Thank you for everything Maggie and Archie.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary in the lovely Plum tree cottage. Wonderful views, great facilities and lots of personal touches that made our stay warm and welcoming. Great locations to see the beautiful countryside and enjoy the surrounding area. Just the privacy and quiet we needed away from it all. We would definitely recommend to friends.

I have been offering self catering apartments in Edinburgh for 18 years and cottages in the Scottish Borders for 30 years.

I live in the Scottish Borders on an organic farm just 3 miles from the lovely market town of Kelso - a truly lovely place to live.
