About Gail Clarkson
Myself and My husband (Adrian) both worked for the NHS for over 25 years. We decided to have a change of life and move to the Scottish Borders to live "our dream"
Gail Clarkson purchased this Cottage in 2017
Why Gail Clarkson chose Kelso
I fell in love with The Old Smithy Cottage as soon I saw it. The converted Blacksmiths has been restored to a beautiful standard with outstanding views across the fields. The location is fantastic as it is only 2 miles from Kelso which has everything you require. It is only 40 minutes drive to the Northumberland Coast and only 50 minutes drive to Edinburgh so it is ideal for everything
What makes this Cottage unique
Single storey converted Blacksmiths, with open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge ideal for families. This property is ideal for wheelchairs and pushchairs as there is a ramp outside and inside the property everything is on the same level. We are a pet friendly cottage as there are lots of fields to take you pet for a walk. The views from the cottage are fantastic

Lovely cottage and excellent host
We stayed at the cottage for the weekend as a family when we were going to a wedding. The cottage is lovely, very nicely decorated and had everything we needed. Gail was a brilliant host, so friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend!

Wonderful property with everything you need and great host
Welcome pack on arrival of tea and scones just perfect.
The property had everything we needed for an extended family weekend away. So many things in the area to come back & see again
Thank you for the lovely review. Our aim is to make our holiday cottage feel like home from home so our guests can relax and enjoy the lovely surrounding area.we look forward to seeing you again in the future. Gail & Adrian
We travel all over the country competing with our pooches and this cottage is the best we have stayed in. The cottage is finished to a very high standard and is immaculate with every little detail considered. It is well equipped and more like a home than a rental. The thing that sets it apart is the welcome. Gail and Adrian are natural genuine hosts and manage to offer everything you need when you need it whilst leaving you to enjoy the cottage. The little personal touches were lovely and immediately made us feel welcome. Having stayed in multiple 'dog friendly' cottages I can honestly say this is the only one so far that genuinely has been. A lovely welcome pack for the boys but more importantly we were trusted and did not feel that we were being supervised for our behaviour! The walking was also excellent so we had four very relaxed dogs and two relaxed happy owners. We will be back!
Dear Jenny and David, and not forgetting your lovely pooches. Thank you for the wonderful review. Our aim is to make every guest feel special which includes our four legged friends. It was a pleasure to have you all stay with us. Thank you so much for leaving the cottage immaculate and clean. Your pooches are a credit to you. I loved watching you with them in the garden as they looked so relaxed and happy.
We looked forward to seeing you again in 2019
Gail & Adrian
