A beautiful location, kids were really pleased with the garden and Sky TV! We loved the comfy beds and the proximity to Hawick, sad we were only here for a couple of days! Lynda & George were extremely hospitable – nothing seemed too much! Thank you we’ll be back.

Had a lovely stay here at the cottage. Two days of mountain biking in Glentress was brilliant and we also loved our trip to Edinburgh! The cottage is situated in a beautiful location, perfect for walking the dogs and is cosy, well-furnished and full of character, would definitely recommend to anyone for a relaxing visit – Thank you very much!

Our first experience in the cottage was 100% excellent, it was exactly what we wanted in the stay here. The rooms were very spacious and the whole atmosphere was homely and like our second home. We will definitely be coming back next year and we look forward to it. Lynda & George thank you for the hospitality, see you next year.

Can’t thank you enough for letting us stay in your holiday cottage, it’s been like a home from home. We have really enjoyed our visit, the kids loved the open spaces around here and the dog has loved it even more. We have spent some quality family time together without the hustle and bustle of home. I will definitely be booking again with yourselves and I will recommend you to others – Thanks again.

Excellent Cottage and location- very tranquil. We received a very warm welcome from George & Lynda and will certainly recommend the cottage to friends and family. Only sorry that our stay was not for longer! We enjoyed visiting Mary Queen of Scots house in Jedburgh. Loved the walk up the hill by the cottage – wonderful views – loads of wild flowers, birds and butterflies, brilliant! We’ve enjoyed a lovely stay- many thanks.

  1. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4-night stay at the Martinshouse. We were warmly greeted by Linda, who showed us the workings of the cottage. She then introduced our granddaughter to the horses in the paddock. Our granddaughter could hardly wait to make friends with the horses, and Linda showed her how to cut up applies, put them in a bucket, and offer them to the horses. The cottage was so comfortable and peaceful, and we liked that it was in driving proximity to Hawick for shopping and dining. It was also centrally located to all the places we wanted to visit in The Borders. The views around the cottage were lovely. The most endearing occasion of our stay was Linda reading the “The Gruffalo” to our granddaughter in Scots. Our granddaughter has since memorized the story — in Scots! We had the most delightful time and we will definitely return soon and often.
