“A real home from home”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a really lovely week's stay at the cottage. It was in a perfect location for Melrose and the surrounding countryside. There was plenty to do - cycling, walks, stately homes, beautiful gardens all within easy reach either on foot or by car.
The cottage itself was extremely clean, cosy and welcoming, and the little welcome touches from Laura were a real bonus. Without doubt, it is probably one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in.
Everything that you would need during your stay was provided for in Melrose - butchers, bakery, 2 small supermarkets, coffee shops / tea rooms, greengrocers, bookshop, fish & chips, pizza takeaway etc. and petrol could be obtained a few minutes drive out of Melrose.
Highly recommended!

“I want to live here!”
Reviewed May 20, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

A gorgeous cottage right in the centre of lovely Melrose. Own garden and parking just 1 minute from the high street shops and attractions. We are already looking to book for next year.

If you want to visit the Scottish borders this is ideal.

“Comfortable, cosy and very well located.”
Reviewed May 16, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Lavender Blue Cottage. It was cosy and warm, extremely comfortable and had everything we needed for our short walking holiday. Laura was very helpful and welcoming, and the hamper of goodies awaiting us was an unexpected bonus. There were wonderful walks from the door, and some excellent eateries within a few minutes walk. We will be back.....

“Perfect holiday cottage”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Had a lovely week staying in this pretty cottage. Every need and more is catered for. The cottage is very comfortable, a perfect home from home. Owner Laura couldn't have been more helpful, accommodating a change to the rental week. Our dog was made to feel welcome, enjoying the doggie treats left by Laura, whilst we enjoyed the lovely basket of goodies!
Will definitely return again, the property is so convenient for walks along the Tweed and of course, just minutes out of the pretty town centre.

“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This was our second time Lavender Blue cottage and once again exceeded our expections. Even though the weather conspired against us we still enjoyed our family get together. There is nothing that you could want that is not supplied in this cottage and I wholeheartly recommend Lavender Blue.

“Home From Home”
Reviewed January 6, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Laura is the example that all owners should strive for she went out of her way to make it warm an welcoming even putting up a Christmas tree that my daughters really appreciated.
The cottage is very pretty to look at and inside is just as you would imagine old world charm.
Everything has been thought of and if it has not I am sure Laura would do her upmost to rectify it if possible.
Lovely bedrooms with nice quality bedding , lot of storage if you should need it .
Bathroom is roomy with nice towels and a bath which I personally like the option of having.
Big homely kitchen with everything you could think of the only negative is the weather was very very cold, normal for the Borders at that time of year and downstairs would feel quite cold when coming back from being out all day so would suggest putting on heating for a couple of hours before you are due back and it will be lovely and toasty when you arrive.
The nicest private rental we have ever stayed in.
