Stunning views of peaceful countryside and immaculate accommodation
We just spent 6 nights staying in The Uplands with our 2 children (6 and 2 and a half) and are returning home feeling rested after a lovely stay.
The views from every window are breathtaking - We loved watching the mist roll in over the trees after the children went to bed! - and it was very peaceful and quiet despite other guests being present in the main house.
Our daughter was thrilled with her 'princess bed' although a little high for our toddler who was comfortably accommodated on a fold up bed, and we all slept really well.
The kitchen was very well appointed which meant cooking was easy. There was also a wide selection of plastic tableware for the children which was great.
I would say the whole place was all thoughtfully laid out. We were grateful for board games and puzzles, the rubber duck (children love a bath toy!) and I really appreciated the presence of a bath and a separate shower cubicle. I loved the reed diffusers which made the whole place smell divine - have already looked them up on Amazon! Everything was tidy and well-presented; bed linens and towels (lovely large bathsheets and handtowels) were clean and fresh.
Dianne and Richard were extremely welcoming and we very much appreciated little touches like the tea/coffee, milk and biscuits on arrival.
The 63 steps upstairs might be a drawback for some but the youngest of our children was able to cope with guidance so it was fine.
The trampoline is a lovely idea and great for our 6 year old but the lack of an enclosure meant we had to keep our impulsive toddler away. Had the weather been better we would have made use of the barbeque. We couldn't fault the facilities.
Thank you for a lovely stay - we hope too visit again in the not too distant future!
Beautiful, comfortable, welcoming place in idyllic surroundings
A real find and unexpected treasure for a reunion weekend with old friends. A spacious and very well appointed apartment with comfortable rooms, personal touches and spectacular views. Diane was available and attentive to all needs without being intrusive for a moment. A perfect spot for walking, cycling, motoring, stately homes and country estates. Blessed by lovely weather, even soft rain showers, the hedgerows were bursting with interest and action, and the forests alive with bird calls. All joy, we look forward to returning. Thank you so much.
I ALREADY GAVE A REVIEW.....HOWEVER, AGAIN, IT WAS VERY LOVELY AND A PEACEFUL PLACE TO STAY AND HIKE
BEAUTIFUL SURROUNDINGS, LOVELY HOME AND EVERYTHING WE COULD POSSIBLY NEED (EXCEPT AN AMERICAN ADAPTOR). OWNER WAS A VERY NICE LADY WHO SEEMED TO RUN THE ENTIRE PLACE ON HER OWN! WHOEVER STAYS HERE WOULD NEED A CAR FOR GETTING OUT TO NEARBY ATTRACTIONS OR EVEN JUST GROCERY SHOPPING. THE OWNER TOOK US INTO TOWN THE FIRST NIGHT SO WE WERE ABLE TO STOCK UP ON FOOD. LOVED THE HIKING AND VIEW FROM THE HILLTOP. WE HAD A TAXI TAKE US TO AND FROM THE TRAIN STATION. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT FOR RELAXATION.
Thanks Paula and family for taiking the time to write such a positive review so glad you had a relaxing time at Broadmeadows, and enjoyed your hikes to the tops of the hills on the windiest weekend of the summer
Very,very nice and beautiful!
Wunderhübsche Fewo in den Scottish Borders. Wir haben unseren Urlaub hier sehr genossen.Das Domizil ist prima ausgestattet und sehr liebevoll eingerichtet.Das Gelände ums Haus herum ist sehr weitläufig und gepflegt, eine Uralub auch für die Augen.
Viel Platz für 4 Personen, Handtücher und Bettwäsche inclusive. Nach einer Woche wird alles frisch gewechselt.Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit und haben im Broadmedows House eine gute Atmosphäre für Erholung und Entspannung geschaffen.
Die Gegend ist toll und bietet vielfältige Möglichkeiten zu Unternehmungen........Wanderungen, Besichtigungen, Natur, Museen, Whisky, Tearooms oder aber ganz entspannt den Blick vom Garten aus in die umgebenden Berge schweifen lassen.
