"Heritage Cottage was ideal for our break. Well equipped and low key owners. Loved it." - Valentine

"We loved the cottage, it was quite cosy for the 4 of us but it was great. The cottage was lovely and warm and the stove was great in the evenings. The welcome tray was a nice touch also." - Macdonald

"We had a fantastic time at Heritage Cottage which was everything we hoped for and more. Everything else was perfect. All in all a fantastic cottage in a lovely area." - Housby

"We enjoyed our stay thanks very much, it's a beautiful area. Thanks very much to Crabtree & Crabtree for their expert services, I'm sure we'll book again." - Player

"I thought the cottage was super actually. Probably the nicest I have stayed in yet with Crabtree & Crabtree. You should make more of the fact it is so close to the Ladykirk beat on the Tweed which is where I was fishing." - Davies

"Enjoyed the cottage very much. Owners were pleasant and helpful. The wood burner was extremely efficient and easy to light, we had it on 4 nights out of our 5!" - Macdonald

"We had a lovely stay at Heritage Cottage. The cottage itself was superb and very clean, the welcome basket was also a nice touch. We are from a large town and are unable to see many stars on a night, but the area where the cottage was situated was amazing, as there was very little light pollution we saw and photographed the amazing skies. This would be a selling point for any astronomy enthusiasts, like ourselves. I have already recommended Crabtree & Crabtree to my friends and we will hopefully be booking again some time in the future!" - Hanson

"We adored the cottage and thought the layout, style and location were excellent. The views were breathtaking and we had a most peaceful and relaxing stay. We would highly recommend the cottage and wished we could have stayed longer." - Hume
