Somewhere to spend a couple of days relaxing and re-cuperation after a busy year and we stumbled upon this little gem. A beautiful country cottage with immaculate grounds, furnished to an exceptionally high standard and with all the comforts of home. Corrine is wonderfully knowledgeable about the area and couldn't do enough to make you feel welcome. We hope to be back very soon as three days was no where near enough.

When I needed a home from home the Thatched Cottage fitted the bill beyond my expections.

Not only is the cottage a "dream house" the owners, Corrine & Ian, could not have been more helpful.

What a beautiful cottage in fabulous location. Corrine gave us such a lovely welcome and had the place warmed up before we got there. There were plentiful logs for the fires and plentiful advice on what to do in the area, particularly the insight on a secret historical walk nearby. The cottage is very comfortable and spacious and would be great for any season.

This is an interesting building consisting of a thatched cottage with wholly new imaginative extension. It's built, finished and furnished to a high standard and is thoroughly recommended. Quiet location sheltered from winds and in easy reach of Duns with many remarkable houses to visit locally.

Cottage Review:  

Since 2009 we have now had 12 holidays in this beautiful cottage & have never been anywhere as often as that before,indeed we had never self catered before.However,the Cottage suits us perfectly. It is furnished & equipped to a high standard and is comfortable, spotlessly clean & in a great location. The garden is so beautifully kept that it is a joy just to "stay home" and enjoy it. Polwarth itself is a quiet peaceful hamlet but within easy reach of other attractions to suit all tastes as I have pointed out in earlier reviews that I have written. The cottage is a hidden gem and our hosts, Corrine & Ian could not be more welcoming. The cotttage feels like home as soon as you walk through the back door.It has only one drawback - you will not want to leave!

What a place this is! Even though we have been to the cottage before,the beauty and comfort are just as immpressive. Our daughter and partner(who hadn't been before) could not get over the place they said that showing pictures and telling people about the place cannot prepare anyone for how distinctive this property is. Corrine as before was a perfect host and we look forward to a return visit.

This was a return visit. After 3 years we wondered if things would have changed but we needn't have worried - the cottage was in the same immaculate condition as it had been in its first year of letting. Everything, including the garden, was looking beautiful and it is obvious the owners pay a great deal of attention to every detail to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. This cottage has to be seen and visited to believe just what a wonderful place it is and we feel very fortunate to have discovered it. It is a good centre from which to visit the Border countryside, the East Coast fishing villages and Northumberland and equally in a tranquil setting to just relax in peace and quiet.

The cottage is the best holiday experience I have ever had, I work in a stressfull job and the seven days I spent here I was completely relaxed. On arrival the cottage was spotlessly clean, it's very well furnished and very spacious. Thank you to Corrine and Ian there hospitality was unforgettable. I have already booked my next holiday this winter.

Fabulous thatched cottage. Great for 2 couples to spend a weekend away, as two large double bedrooms, both with en suite bathroom. Log fires in kitchen and lounge - very cosy. Never cold even in very windy and wintry December weather. Beautifully decorated and furnished throughout. Exceptionally well kitted out in kitchen, even dishwasher tablets provided, as well as tea and coffee in cupboard. Fantastic cottage holiday - we'll be back!!

It is the best place ever to relax & unwind in luxury & Corrine & Ian are the best hosts you could wish for. You will not be disappointed if you holiday at The Cottage, it is a quality establishment & fantastic value for money.

What a stunning cottage this is, a hidden gem surrounded by beautiful gardens and woodland. the property is spacious and yet somehow feels so cosy and homely, it seems to wrap itself around you as a welcome. As we had my elderly parents with us the ground floor bedroom was ideal, complete with own bathroom. all facilities are better than anyone could imagine, as for Corrine and Ian, nothing is too much trouble and local knowledge superb, they definately go that extra mile to make you stay exta special.

Wow! That was our first impression when we saw the Thatched Cottage on our arrival. It is so pretty and furnished to a very high standard, set in a lovely private garden with a brook around the edge. We were entertained every day by the bird life feeding by the kitchen windows and if you can tear yourself away for the day there are plenty of places to visit within easy reach. Corrine the owner is very friendly and helpful and can give you lots of advise on the area. We will definitely visit the Thatched Cottage again.

It was a pleasure and indeed a privilege to stay in this lovely cottage and we wish we could have stayed longer. It has everything that you need and is handy for many places in the Borders with the coast not far away.

There is plenty of wildlife with woodpeckers and nuthatches among the birds hanging on the feeders outside the kitchen windows and hares in the garden.

Could not fault anything and wish I could live there.

I visited the cottage last year, before arriving I was concerned that it could not be as good as I remembered; it was better. The cottage is clean, excellently maintained; with everything you could need, set in beautiful gardens. I had a wonderful week, although the weather was not so good the cottage was warm and cosy. There is so much to do in the area I was able to explore new areas and the friendly owners were able to offer several suggestions.

This cottage is five star plus. The owners have made the accomodation so very comfortable. It was such a relaxing well thought out home, everything we needed was provided.

The grounds are beautiful and set away from the road, with wild life in abundance. Indoors access is easy and one bedroom is on the ground floor.

We would definately stay here again and again. Many comments in the guest book were from people who had returned from last year.

We used this as a base to travel into Edinburgh for the fringe, which worked out very well. We also visited Bamburgh and Alnwick easily. We had fairly good weather but it would have been a pleasure to stay behind at the cottage as it was so pleasant and peaceful.

We have stayed in several cottages in the Borders and this one is without a doubt the best. The cottage itself is peaceful and in a beautiful location without being too far from the nearest town. Internally it is airy and spacious whilst feeling like a home from home. It is beautifully appointed and the owners provide everything you need for a happy stay. Thoughtful touches like fresh flowers and a welcome basket are much appreciated but to be honest you will be more than impressed with the cottage and the lovely welcome that you receive. Book this cottage without any hesitations, however you might find it difficult as all the return visitors will be trying to get in first!

Got home yesterday after a week at this lovely cottage, I can concur with all the previous comments (all positve). This is the 13th property we have stayed in and was undoubtably the best. The conversion of this cottage is amazing from a dilapitated ruin to a real gem. Corrine told me that Ian and herself did most of the work themselves and then lived in it for 5 years before building another house close by. Beautiful location, not overlooked by any other property. If you book this cottage you will not be disappointed.

After studying the website and reading previous reviews I had very high expectations before I arrived at the cottage, not only were my expectations met but were exceeded. The rooms are large, light, well decorated and immaculate and the website does not do them justice. Everything you could need was provided, from cooking utensil and food staples to magazines, books and DVDs. The garden provided the perfect setting and watching the visiting birds and wildlife was a constant source of entertainment.

The location was excellent, a quiet village located near to several major roads, making travelling to all the attractions easy. I visited Berwick and St Abbs at the Coast and travelled inland to Melrose and Abbotsford. There are several guide books in the cottage detailing the many activities in the area including local walks, historic buildings, museums and craft centres.

We have just had our fourth holiday at this cottage in twelve months and considering that we had never rented anywhere before this speaks for itself. It really is in one of the best places in the Borders and is extremely comfortable,clean well equipped and homely. The location is very charming and peaceful with plenty of local interest and easy commuting distance to shops, seaside, moorland, stately homes, golf courses etc. The place is so relaxing though that it is quite likely that you will be happy to stay and chill out in the beautiful private garden. The owners are super hosts and are close at hand to ensure that your stay is the best that it can possibly be. We are always sorry to leave but have booked the Cottage again for another two weeks and so look forward to our return

The cottage has been renovated and to an exceptionally high standard. Very well equiped from the kitchen through to the bathrooms.

A lovely part of the country in a truly idylic cottage.

Cottage Review:  

This was a superb cottage, immaculate, and extremely luxurious. Every little detail has been thought out and you wont need for anything. Hosts were lovely and extremely helpful and chatty in a really nice way. A few mins drive to local facilities and everything you need is there. Unfortunately our time at the cottage was marred by pretty rotten weather (snow and ice) so going further afield wasnt really do-able so cant really comment on that. All in all a beautiful cottage in a lovely area of Scotland.

Cottage Review:  

Beautifully appointed cottage, privacy, peace and quiet but very well positioned for the coast and the picturesque Scottish Borders. Every comfort you would need, light and airy uncluttered rooms. Owners very welcoming but not obtrusive.

We have just booked our third stay! [Added at Editor's discretion since it appears to be a helpful review and the reviewer has been authenticated]

Cottage Review:  

First class accommodation of the highest standard and quality. Cottage tastefully decorated and furnished, with everything you could require available on arrival including a welcome bottle of wine! Owners nearby in case of problems but no problems did arise. Easily the best equipped and most comfortable and luxurious self-catering accommodation we have ever stayed in where everything we could possibly need for a comfortable stay was provided. Good situation in a very quiet and restful location with easy access to the beautiful Scottish borders as well as the Northumberland coast and countryside. Garden furniture provided so that we could rest and enjoy the garden which was well tended by the owners. Would highly recommend this cottage which is exceptionally good value for money and of the highest standard. It was everything the brochure said and more!

Make up of party:  We were a party of three including my 93 year old mother. This may not be classed as disabled property but with only one small step indoors it was easily managed by my mum who has slight mobility problems, as one bedroom and bathroom are on the ground floor.

Cottage Review:  

This is a first class cottage which has been beautifully extended. It is very spacious, comfortable and equipped to the highest standard.

The holiday cottage sits in its own well maintained large grounds on all sides, not overlooked at all. There is a stream on one side with an old stone bridge. There are trees on all sides.

Corrine and Ian are most friendly and helpful hosts. We plan to return next year to this wonderful, peaceful and relaxing cottage.

Cottage Review:  

Everything one would expect from a five-star luxury cottage and more - everything is top quality. Suitable for two couples who can have their own space if they wish.

Lovely situation - so peaceful but not isolated. Owners very friendly without intruding and gave us excellent advice on what to see in the area.

Hope to visit again and would recommend the Thatched Cottage to anyone without hesitation.
