This was the perfect spot for our mini break with two small children. They loved the farm, the house was comfortable, warm and a home from home. Murray was a charming and genial host but left us to ourselves as much as we wanted. Heartily recommended this place! Xxxxx

Just back from a lovely 3 night stay at Windylaws Farm near Peebles with friends and our dog, Molly. Murray was a great host who communicated well throughout the booking phase and afterwards - suggesting a local hairdresser (we were down for a wedding) and also offering to walk / feed our dog when we were out at the wedding. Really amazing service!! Beyond our expectations. The location is up a steep bumpy road and seems very remote but really is just 5 minutes from Peebles. Superb! The property is spacious and well laid out with the bedrooms at opposite ends of the main living area which gives privacy when you have two couples staying. There is even a utility room to hang wet clothes and store bikes etc if needed. The listing said no wifi but there was indeed wifi which was a bonus as one of our friends had to do some work. Nice surprise. Recommended!

The cottage is accessed by a long, steep farm track that winds up the hillside, providing fabulous views of the countryside. The cottage is spacious and comfortable and the host was very helpful and friendly. Perfect for our visit to Peebles/Innerleithen.

A great find ... Lots of room in a very spacious, clean and well set up self catering farm building conversion. Set high on a hill in a peaceful spot but close to the main road into Peebles. Communication from Murray was very good and prompt to respond. Highly recommended.
