"We have had a great week here and this has to be the best appointed cottage we have ever been in, and we’ve been in many! It’s superb!"Ms Baxter
"We have had a wonderful stay at Boundary Bank this week. We love the high spec way Boundary Bank has been furnished and set up which makes us feel so comfortable. The position of Boundary Bank being able to walk into the town so easily is really appreciated. The view from our bedroom window through the Juliet balcony is truly amazing either during the day or at night when the Abbey is illuminated is utterly magical. We really appreciated the shed where we could store our bike carrier and our bikes. The cycling in this area is really wonderful in spite of being surprisingly hilly. Plus the walking from Boundary Bank is endless. If I get my way we will return as there are so many other things I would like to do in the area. I fancy taking the train from Tweedbank to Edinburgh which is meant to be beautiful, not to mention a day in the beautiful city. This is the third Crabtree and Crabtree property we have stayed in and have enjoyed every one but we do feel that Boundary Bank comes top although all of them have been excellent."Mr & Mrs Hall
"It was the best equipped and maintained holiday accommodation we have ever had. We liked the attention to detail such as the little glass shelf in the bathroom and the lovely old internal doors. Jedburgh is such a beautiful area that we will definitely return."Mr & Mrs Draper
"We visited almost 6 years ago when the cottage had just been renovated. It was spotlessly clean, looked freshly decorated and the furniture, fixtures and fittings were still top quality with lots of little touches that make a difference. There was lots of information on walks in the area, including maps, places of interest and a very comprehensive information folder on the property. The welcome basket was much appreciated, including eggs from their hens and homemade biscuits which were scrumptious. There was even the recipe for them and I've made a batch since coming home! There was also a huge basket of logs for the woodburner too.
We would certainly stay there again - we just love that area as it's so accessible for walking yet the town is also so close. It's lovely to look across the valley and see Jedburgh Abbey floodlit at night."Mr & Mrs Green
"We had a lovely week at Boundary Bank. The accommodation is well-nigh perfect - spacious, very well appointed and spotless. A great location too. We’re definitely planning to return when we can."Mr & Mrs Stark
"Delighted to give you our feedback on our stay at Boundary Bank - it is so spacious, well-appointed and absolutely lacking in nothing to make for a perfect stay. The view of the Abbey from the house, especially when illuminated at night, was stunning!"Ms Wilkinson
"We stayed at Boundary Bank last year for a nearby folk festival in Denholm and returned again this year for the same reason. It is a beautifully renovated cottage with everything you need. A comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Super views over to Jedburgh town which we enjoyed, especially with all the autumn colours. Thank you to the owners for the welcome pack which was really appreciated. We finally went to visit Jedburgh Abbey and it is a fantastic building, well worth a visit,especially with the audio tour for the history. We also drove to the border stone between England and Scotland (about 10 miles) and the views from the lay-by were something else! This really is a lovely part of the country without too much traffic. So we would definitely stay again at Boundary Bank."Cullen Party
"We had a lovely stay at Boundary Bank, we absolutely loved what the owners have done to make this the most beautiful, stylish, comfortable home from home. From the welcome basket to the raspberries left on the doorstep everything had been thought of. We will almost certainly book another visit to Boundary Bank. Thank you for the way our booking was handled, we felt confident that we wouldn't be disappointed."Mr & Mrs Bell
"We had a very good time at Boundary Bank. It is a lovely property and the owners are very pleasant."Mr May
"We absolutely LOVE Boundary Bank house. Easily one of our favorite places. Love that it’s super clean, the lovely touches of the welcome package, the garden and views of Jedburgh Abbey and town was spectacular. The owners are so friendly and accommodating. We will definitely return. Thank you"The Jones Family
"This is a great property in a brilliant location. the pictures (particularly of the beautiful view) actually don't do it justice. it was equipped with everything you could possibly need and the little touches and welcome basket were so lovely! highly recommend"Ms Connor
"Boundary Bank was a really lovely cottage - one of the best, if not the best, we’ve stayed in (and we’ve stayed in a lot!). It was spotlessly clean, extremely well furnished and well equipped and with stunning views to boot. Had a lovely week and would certainly recommend to friends and family."Lambert family
"What a fantastic property. Every thing you could wish for in a holiday home and more. The best holiday house we have ever stayed in. Thank you all for the highest standards you keep. I wish you could spread out across Scotland. We look forward to our next stay in a Crabtree & Crabtree property."Mr & Mrs Cunningham
"We had a wonderful stay at Boundary Bank. A lot of thought has gone into its renovation and the owners have done a fantastic job, it had everything we needed. The property was spotlessly clean when we arrived, we knew immediately that we had made the perfect choice for our weekend away. The welcome pack was a very nice touch, which we really appreciated."Mr & Mrs Nairn
"We had a wonderful week in Boundary Bank even though our visit coincided with “The Beast from the East” and we got snowed in!! The property is first-class and has been extremely sensitively remodelled. The quality of the fixtures, fittings, furniture and furnishings is excellent and we could not have been more comfortable or delighted with our accommodation. We very much appreciated the welcome basket and the little flower-arrangement and the owner’s concern for us in the snow and will definitely return to stay again in better weather."Mr & Mrs Murdoch
"We absolutely loved the property and we all had a fabulous time. Thank you. We will definitely rebook with Crabtree & Crabtree in the future."Heyes family

We were 100% satisfied and would absolutely recommend this property to anyone interested in it. The location, the condition of the property, the amenities, the comfort, the welcome, all were top notch. Thank you very, very much! We look forward to future opportunities to rent property from Crabtree & Crabtree."Johengen family
"We had a wonderful stay, thank you. The property is of the highest standards, as is everything in it & it was certainly the best we have ever stayed in. Such thought has gone into every aspect & then we also had fresh raspberries left on the doorstep on our return one day! As well as a superb welcome pack! We couldn’t have asked for anything better. Dealing with Crabtree & Crabtree was an absolute pleasure, too, thank you."Kent family
"We had a great time at Boundary Bank. This is our third visit as it totally fits the bill, particularly for a week in late autumn when the weather may not be so good. The cottage is very well equipped with lots of thoughtful touches e.g. fresh flowers from the garden, a vast array of info and maps about the area and beyond. The welcome basket, including eggs from their hens, was much appreciated and also an additional box of chocolates with a "Welcome Back" note! The owners are on hand if required but certainly don't intrude, a friendly couple. We would definitely visit again!"
"Boundary Bank is a really lovely cottage with the best view in Jedburgh looking out directly at the Abbey and over the town. The interior design is excellent and furniture and fittings tasteful and top quality. The patio area is planted with herbs and flowers and has views over the owners’ beautiful garden and beyond. The welcome basket contained home made cake, home grown raspberries, eggs from the owners’ hens plus bread,butter, milk and oat cakes. Book it for a Borders holiday - it’s a gem!"Mrs Duhan
"We had a lovely time at Boundary Bank, the house was superb the quality of the equipment and furnishing were excellent. There were lots of little touches that made all the difference such as washing up liquid, dishwasher tabs, tin foil and cling I could go on. The view for the terrace was just perfect. The owners were very discreet. We would book with you again if we come to the north."Ms Curtis
"Boundary Bank was a gorgeous cottage! We loved it. Spotlessly clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated. Lovely outside seating area that got the afternoon sun and to enjoy the view of Jedburgh and the countryside. A great weekend in a great area. Our third Crabtree & Crabtree cottage- we’ll be choosing another one soon for our next trip. And have been recommending Crabtree &Crabtree far and wide!"Ms Penrice
"What a great weekend we had, spent with friends celebrating my husbands 38th Birthday at Boundary Bank. The cottage was immaculate and beautifully appointed. Huge comfy beds with fabulous bedding, and the Laura Ashley furnishings and White Company towels were a perfect addition. It had everything you could imagine you’d need. Little touches like the butter and milk and the welcome basket of goodies were great. Jedburgh is a beautiful little town and the views across it from the living room were fantastic.We even had a pheasant visit the garden on our last morning! Can’t wait to stay in another Crabtree & Crabtree cottage again soon. Already looking for an Easter break!"Johnson
