We spent four very comfortable nights in this delightful B&B. We were welcomed by a very genial hostess, Jan, for whom nothing was too much trouble. The room was spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast provided a great selection and was very generous. As tourists to the region, Jan was a great help with recommendations for meals,...

Stayed two nights in the B&B to take part in a cycle sportive starting nearby. The house is beautiful and the room spotless. Most important for us is is secure bike storage, easy parking, animal free rooms, a really good shower and a comfortable bed. Winkston Farm ticked all these boxes. It is about 15-20 mins walk into Peebles for...

We had the most wonderful and enjoyable stay at this excellent B&B. I don't think I have ever been made to feel so welcome when staying away. When I arrived on the bus from Edinburgh to stay for a couple of days researching my family tree in the Peebles area, Jan couldn't have been more helpful. She certainly went the...

This is a 4* B&B home from home. Beautifully decorated and furnished with every little detail looked after. We only spent one night so had to explore Peebles in the evening after our visit in the daytime to Dawyck Botanical Gardens. We easily walked into Peebles town centre in 15mins for a look around and a good curry at the...

My husband and I stayed here for four nights on the way to Fort William. The room we stayed in wasn't massive but was perfectly laid out, plenty of room for all our normal and mtb clothes! The cooked breakfast was lovely and had good choice of cereals. Janice and her husband were extremely welcoming and friendly throughout our stay,...

We were taking part in the annual car hill trial at Biggar and decided to stay at Peebles as it's a great town with good access to Edinburgh and lovely surrounding countryside: there's a bus on the main road just 100 yards away from the house, so you can hop on that and be in Edinburgh in a hour, with...

Amazing views all round. The owners have provided a beautiful and peaceful home from home. Everything is top quality. The breakfast was so tasty. I ate way more than I needed! I wish I could cook sausage and bacon so that it was both juicy and slightly crispy. Superb. The rating is well deserved. Excellent value for money. I would...

My husband and I stayed in Ploughman's Rest, one of the self-catering cottages on the farm, as we were attending a wedding at the local Peebles Hydro Hotel. The cottage was very cosy, comfortable, fully equipped and spotlessly clean. Jan's husband George showed us all the newborn lambs on the farm, which was lovely. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and...

Our visit to Peebles was to go biking at Glentress. We arrived on a very cold, wet & windy day. Jan (our hostess) instantly greeted us with a warm smile and allowed us to drop off our bags before heading back out. She pointed out the secure bike store for our return and gave us a guide around the house....
