The room is simply furnished; just a bed and bedside cabinets, a full length mirror and a fold-up chair but it is spacious and very clean and comfortable. The furniture, fittings and bed linen are of good quality. Iain is a very laid back host and although our schedules didn't coincide very often he was very friendly and welcoming when our paths crossed.
The house is relatively remote but easy to find and very quiet; a huge bonus for anyone who, like me, wants to get away from traffic and airport noise and listen to the birdsong for a change.
The local roads were almost completely traffic free and a delight to drive on. I can heartily recommend the garage/co-op store in Earlston which has a huge selection and is open from 5:00am until midnight.
For a truly superb steak, try the Old Thistle Inn, a few miles down the road in Westruther but check opening times first.
