Booked this for my 50th with all the girls, ages ranged from 17 to 76 and each and everyone of them lloved this place. It was spotless and all rooms were fantastic, beds comfy, bathrooms clean and tidy, ample towels and bedding in fact everything you could possibly need and more. Fantastic views from the balcony and even though it was September we still managed to sit out one night, honestly I cannot fault this house. Go on Book it now you won't regret it.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one night at the weekend and had a great time. The house was a great size and the family/living area was lovely with a fabulous balcony. The house was very clean on arrival and the owner was really helpful when we needed assistance with various things. I would highly recommend this house for a large group of friends or family.

Beautiful home and a magical trip!!

  • 5 of 5

When me and my university friends decided to book a trip we were really excited looking into Tweed Rig! The photos on the website looked beautiful and the price was totally reasonable! In fact when we first believed we would not be able to afford the home Debbie was lovely enough to offer us a reduced rate! She was always very speedy with responses and super helpful, couldn't have asked for a better host. When we got to the house the place was spotless and the pictures don't do it justice, the view was incredible from the balcony and we enjoyed a lovely BBQ on our first evening. Since we had 16 of us, Debbie put out spare beds and those were very comfortable for fold-outs! We all really enjoyed our stay at Tweed Rig and would definitely look into revisiting next summer, if you're looking for a beautiful home in a stunning landscape then this is definitely the place for you!

Beautiful house and spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

Great house, really well stocked, beautifully laid out with lots of bathrooms (great for lots of ladies getting ready!) and a fantastic living space - huge dining table, big kitchen and ample space in the lounge for us all. Balcony was an absolute sun trap most of the day, perfect for brekkie right through to an evening BBQ. Perfect hen house with loads of suggestions available from the host. Would definitely recommend for other hens!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the excellent review. The balcony is one of the best features of the house. We recently added a new spacious bathroom downstairs which makes it very conveniant for larger groups. J
