Reviews

"We had the pleasure of being the first guests to stay in Dryburgh Farmhouse, what a stunning house in a stunning setting! The house is absolutely beautiful, the quality of finish and attention to detail is second to none, 5* accommodation at a minimum. From the beautifully equipped modern kitchen, to the wonderful appointed bedrooms, this place is a must to stay. The welcome pack was the best, the housekeeper and owner were so helpful and attentive. The river Tweed just a stones throw away, with fantastic walks, surrounding areas with attractions, all within easy reach. My wife & I, and our twin grandsons absolutely loved our stay here, and will be definitely be back in the future."

Franklin family

"Thank you for the recommendation for Dryburgh Farmhouse; it was perfect and we had a wonderful holiday, we loved the area."

Kirkby family

"We had a wonderful break at Dryburgh Farmhouse One. The property is 5 star, quality, luxury accommodation, cosy, spacious and beautifully decorated. It is in a perfectly tranquil setting with lovely views of the Tweed & the Suspension bridge and the surrounding hills. The bed was perhaps the most comfortable and luxurious that we have ever slept in with linen of the finest quality. The welcome pack was very generous and sensible as it included enough produce to prepare a meal on arrival if you had arrived late. I have to say that I do appreciate the efficient, “no fuss”, paperless booking arrangements that Crabtree & Crabtree offers. A special mention for the housekeeper who is a little gem - she takes a real interest in what she does and takes great pride in the properties that she tends & has a real warmth for those she works for. It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to meet her and we look forward to seeing her again."

Turner family

"We had the most relaxing and happy time at the farmhouse. Everything was beautifully appointed and thoughtfully considered, from the stunning welcome pack to the careful touches in the bathrooms. Comfortable, homely decor and immaculate presentation all designed to enable you to settle instantly and feel at peace. We loved the outside space and spent lots of time reading in the garden under the trees. A return visit by us is guaranteed."

Mr & Mrs Butchard

"I can’t begin to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at this let. The farmhouse was a joy- so spacious and bright- the usual standard of your properties. Everything we needed was there - the welcome pack was enormous and the earplugs made us chuckle! The setting was perfection and I even managed an apple crumble from the garden windfall! We have used your agency several times in the past and I am already selecting our next property from your list. Also thank you for understanding my booking error and arranging the “extra” night for us - super service!"

Ms Wilson

"The house was one of the best that we have ever rented and we have rented quite a number over the past 35 years! Beautifully finished and very well equipped. We’ll be in touch once we have got dates for next year sorted."

Tombs family

"Enjoyed our holiday thanks.  Farmhouse 1 where we stayed was excellent and we would recommend it without reserve."

Mr & Mrs Clark

"We would just like to say what a wonderful stay we had at Dryburgh Farmhouse One. The house was immaculate and lovely and warm. It was equipped with everything we could possibly need to make our holiday feel relaxed and special. We did not want to leave! The food welcome pack (as the one we had last year whilst staying at Farmhouse Two) was again the best we have ever received. We feel it would be hard to find anywhere that surpasses our experience of Dryburgh Farmhouses. With such lovely accommodation, setting and welcome pack we hope to return again next year. We could not fault Dryburgh Farmhouses, or our experience using Crabtree & Crabtree in any way, and have already recommended them to family. Please continue letting Dryburgh Farmhouses so we have somewhere to look forward to for our holidays."
