Lovely Farmyard Barn

  • 5 of 5
We have just come back from a week away at Muirhouse Farm. 9 of us in total, 2 families with 5 children ( boys 10-17) and a dog. This was a perfect holiday home. Lots of space for us all to move around and a great location. The view from the lounge and downstairs double is amazing, seeing the sheep and cattle on the hillside from your bed whilst having a lazy morning was great. This property is actually in the farmyard so be prepared for some mud and countryside smells and the shock of a peacock in full plumage strutting his stuff on the lawn! Stow had nothing to offer - the local pub is being renovated - so we ventured out and fell in love with Melrose and the River Tweed 20 mins drive away. Great for eating out, walking, stunning scenery especially walking the river banks. We also enjoyed the Aga - when you haven't got one at home it's an interesting experience.
Wendy and Iver provided a warm welcome and live in the adjacent farmhouse but don't interfere with your stay. The sheep were brought in and sheared during our stay, a nice touch for the 'townies'! The property is isolated but being on the farm means the farm workers are regularly outside the garden - this didn't bother us but any dogs/children need to be kept under control.
We all loved the house, setting, and surrounding area. The house is rennovated to a good standard and was immaculate on our arrival. If we could improve anything we would have had more lounge seating. Not enough sofa space for 9 but this wasn't something we needed often.
We would love to go back, this was my first time in Scotland and the Borders area is a joy, beautiful. The driving is also a treat, good roads and no traffic.
This is a great property. You won't be disappointed.

The Mill House

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I had a wonderful weekend at the Mill House, Stow in October this year.
The downstairs bedrooms with crisp linen and towels aplenty were the first rooms we saw, entering the cosy hallway and stepping onto the wonderfully warm flooring (a gift on an autumn morning!).  The open staircase took us upstairs to feel the invisible arms of a warm(not only from the Aga) welcome into the kitchen/livingroom.  The kitchen table was the perfect size for our games, 'family' meals and chatting over many cups of tea (from the whistling kettle).  The kitchen cupboards are well stocked with crockery, glasses, cutlery and cooking utensils, and the dishwasher was well used by our group.  The fridge/freezer accommodated all our drinks and food.  Comfy sofas, which also fold down into beds, surround the tv and dvd player.  The patio doors opened onto a lovely garden space, with seating and a bbq (perfect for a return visit in the summer!).  Although it was late autumn, we woke up to sunshine streaming into the House, and we were able to enjoy walks into the village.  I would definitely recommend the Mill House for a complete break - no need to pack linen or towels, just take yourselves
