The space

Gardeners cottage is a stone built cottage hidden down a farm track in the Scottish Borders. You will enjoy peace, quiet and a spot of tranquility. However we are located not too far from Peebles in the Borders, Penicuik in Midlothian and Edinburgh. Come and stay in our guest bedroom, where we have space to welcome a maximum of two guests. You can relax in front of our wood stove in the living room.

Guest access

The guest room we rent via Airbnb sleeps a maximum of two people. In the room there is a king sized bed, a chest of drawers and a built in wardrobe. There is also a chair and a desk. We also provide a mirror and a hairdryer and towels for two guests. Coffee and tea making facilities are provided in the room, as well. There is access to shared bathroom next to the room and we try and keep our use of it to a minimum when guests stay but it is our family home. There is a separate shower and cast iron bath and heated towel rail. If you are staying for a few days we can give you a key to the side door so they can come and go as please. Guests can relax in our living room and we are happy to chat if we are around and not busy. Breakfast is served in our kitchen we leave out a selection of cereals juice fruit etc. Sadly we do not provide cooking facilities but there are several good local restaurants and pubs we can suggest nearby, which are only a short drive away.
We really enjoy meeting travellers but are happy to give you space and peace if required. Please ask if you need any further information or guidance. We are also happy to wash clothes in our machine for a £5 fee per load.

Interaction with guests

We prefer to meet our guests when they arrive and have a quick chat, but are happy to let you do your own thing. We have a selection of tourist leaflets in our guest room but we are happy to advise on local attractions, eateries and transport. We do enjoy listening and finding out what adventures our guests have been up to. At all times we ensure privacy for our guests.

Cat and family have a wonderful spot right outside of Edinburgh. If you want to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the city after a day walking the Royal Mile visit this Air B&b. It is a perfect opportunity to see the country setting not too far away. They have a beautiful house which is clean and comfy. Breakfast was quite a spread with many options. They were all very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. It was one of our favorite spots.

What wonderful place to stay. Cat and Graham are very helpful and warm and gave great directions. Breakfast was a feast and a good start for the day. Comfortable beds, good conversation , what more can you ask for. And if you are a history buff you will have an extra good time.

Excellent hosts and a lovely home. I felt very welcome and the relaxed atmosphere made for a very pleasant stay. Very clean and tidy and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was spot-on too. (The room and shared bathroom are next to each-other at one end of the house which made it feel a little bit more 'out of the way' and private than I first thought it might after reading the description, which was nice too). Thank you!

We had a wonderful stay at Cat's Garden Cottage. Cat and Graham are great hosts who take good care of their guests. Their breakfast is a delicious start of the day as it was really fresh and healthy. The (bath)room was very neat and nicely decorated. As their cottage is situated in a lovely and quiet area there is nothing more you need for a perfect holiday.
