Absolutely Fantastic Cottage : From the first initial contact I had with Claire to actually arriving and having our holiday I can honestly say both she and her husband Donald were fantastic. Always replied to any emails I sent asking questions before our visit, on hand to welcome us when arriving and then always there if we needed them during our stay. Stables cottage is delightful – very roomy for a one bedroomed cottage and lovely setting. Our dogs had plenty of room to enjoy their holiday too. The cottage is one of three lets within the lovely grounds and Claire and Donald now offer B&B in their beautiful house too. The cottage had everything in it to enjoy the perfect stay.


This is a charming cottage in large private grounds. The Saddlery is full of character with quality furnishings and is very clean, spacious and warm. It was perfect for our quiet Autumn weekend break. We took our two dogs and they loved the wooded walk into Melrose which is only a 15 minute walk away. The owners were friendly and welcoming and the country location gave us the best sleeps ever! Great place, highly recommended.

We stayed at Saddlery cottage for two nights and it was just perfect for what we needed. The cottage was warm and very comfortable. It was so well equipped and had everything you would require to make it homely. The owners Claire and Donald were super and very approachable. A great place for exploring the Borders. Would love to come back again. Thank you.


One of the best, An excellent cottage in a quiet location. Everything you could want including parking. Melrose is a good town with lots of individual shops, restaurants and cafes. Lovely hosts on hand to help with any problems. Nice and dog friendly, we will return soon.

Perfection! Lovely, comfortable, well equipped cottage in a wonderful location for walking or visiting places of interest. Friendly and considerate hosts, nothing was too much trouble.

Rural Relaxation. My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved this cottage. Beautiful cottage in a lovely setting and evereything you could wish for to chill out and relax in comfort. This was our first visit to this cottage but will definetely not be our last. Although we did not meet Claire and Donald this time we would both like to thank them for all their assistance in the booking process and leading up to our break. This was a wonderful break enhanced by feeling completely at home in superb accomodation; would thoroughly recommend.
