A wonderful holiday treat!

  • 5 of 5

Borders Retreat is a beautiful house with attention to detail and charming finishing touches. For a winter stay the house was cosy and comfortable. The kids enjoyed the barn-like style, mezzanine and finding all the chickens! The beds were very comfortable, with ample duvets & quilts. We felt really welcome and well cared for with breakfast food provided as well as a wonderful lemon cake, and even chocolates on the pillows! Definitely recommend!

Cosy, quiet cottage in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Borders Retreat. The cottage has everything you need with a well supplied kitchen, comfortable bed and has all the comforts of home.

Thanks Sandra for all the little treats and the extra little personal touches of a welcome note, fresh flowers and yummy lemon cake.

We would love to stay again.

Cosy cottage with touches of home

  • 5 of 5

Borders Retreat is a wonderful spot and we would highly recommend it as a place to stay if you're headed to Greytown. It is cozy and beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and linen. All communication was excellent and our host went above and beyond to add special extras, such as lighting the fire before our arrival and providing home baking. We hope to be back in the future!
