Amazing cottage. The decor and beautiful touches arranged by Eileen made our time in Melrose even more enjoyable. Very clean and 5 star rated accommodation in the heart of an amazing town within walking distance making it such a great trip had by both of us.

Beautiful cottage in a quiet but central location. Everything you need for a short break or longer holiday and ideal for a couple. Kitchen well equipped and water pressure perfect. Very comfortable bed and great storage available in the walk in wardrobe. As expected in a cottage the stairs are narrow and include a turn - something to consider if your mobility is reduced. Communication was excellent - Ali and Eileen made check in very easy. Wouldn't hesitate to book again.

We had a lovely stay at Braeside Cottage. It was cosy and welcoming and tastefully decorated. The cottage is in walking distance of Melrose town centre and in a great location for exploring the Scottish Borders.

The cottage was beautifully decorated and clean. Although it was a bit chilly when we stayed, we got the wood burner going and soon warmed up! The location of the cottage was great - only a couple of minutes into the town centre and the shops and pubs. We had a great few days in Melrose and would thoroughly recommend a stay in this cottage.

Eileen User ProfileEileen is a superhost.

I have recently retired due to ill health from my career and am currently a full time Mum. Braeside Cottage has been my first venture and I have thoroughly enjoyed restoring the character back into Braeside.

We have created a wonderful boutique style cottage, with all the beautiful refinery of a luxury holiday home, with interior designed finishings but sympathetically retaining characteristics of a stone build 100 year old cottage.

I have personally carried out the restoration of the furniture and finishing touches, all of which have filled my days of ill health.

This cottage has truly been a labour of love and I am now enjoying welcoming guests to our gorgeous cottage.
