5/5 Excellent

Perfect peaceful retreat. Ideal for trail running and hiking
We holiday in Scotland regularly, and The Brambles has been one of our favourite holiday cottages by far. Well equipped, spacious, warm and comfortable. On a minor note, Cleanliness could have been improved, especially in the shower and the water was not very hot (due to a leaking tap). The cottage is ideally located for numerous trails in the hills and of course the southern upland way. Our 2 border terriers are worn out. Duns has everything needed in terms of amenities. The owners Walter and Ann are a lovely couple and left us to enjoy our week. Highly recommend this place and we hope to return soon.

5/5 Excellent

Superb Accomodation
We stayed in Brambles cottage for a week in August. Everything was first class from the quality of furnishing, privacy, outdoor space and peace and quiet which is what we want on holiday. A perfect base to explore the Borders and coastline. Owners were very friendly, helpful and nothin* too much trouble. We will be back. Jack & Marion Dempster

Top Haus, Gastgeber!

5/5 Excellent

Das perfekte Haus für einen Urlaub im Grünen
Wir haben in dem großzügigen und hochwertig eingerichteten Haus eine tolle Woche verbracht. Die Vermieter waren sehr zuvorkommend und herzlich. Leider war es zuletzt sehr kalt, sodass das Haus bei unserer Ankunft etwas ausgekühlt war. Die Vermieter haben uns jedoch große Mengen an Feuerholz zur Verfügung gestellt, mit dem wir uns eine gemütliche Woche machen konnten. Gerne wieder!
