Guest Comments

“If you like quiet and beautiful this is the place for you. Fantastic unspoilt countryside with great hosts on site. Stunningly beautiful all within a twenty mile radius. If you’ve never visited this area it’s a must and if you have a dog they will be in heaven. 10/10”

Martyn, October 2019

“What an amazing spot. The cottage is immaculate so much so I thought we were the first guests to ever use it. It is in a secluded location with the nearest amenities a few miles away, which was just what we were wanted. Fantastic owners who couldn’t do enough for us. Definitely recommend.”

John, October 2019

“My wife and I have just returned from a 4 day motoring mini-break in the Scottish Borders. We picked Blueacres as our base as it was central to our travel requirements.The accommodation was excellent, being contemporary, airy, and spotless, with all mod cons and lacking nothing. Linda our host was very friendly and helpful; she obviously has high standards paying a lot of attention to detail in a nice way.A welcome pack was provided on arrival together with dog treats. Fresh flowers added a nice touch making the whole experience very pleasant.Utility services etc were all included in the price with no extras.I have no hesitation in recommending Blueacres as suitable accommodation for a couple (with dog) wanting to explore the Borders, it is a little remote, meaning a car is pretty much essential, although the peace and tranquility make it worth it.”

“Blueacres is set in a stunning location….. very beautiful and peaceful. The cottage is just lovely and very homely. We will definitely be back.”

Martino, August 2019

“Blueacres is a cosy, comfortable, immaculate cottage a little off the beaten track, but close enough to some lovely towns and forest / river walks to make our stay there most enjoyable. The view from the main living area is stunning and the patio area is very pretty. The owners have equipped the cottage with just about everything a visitor could possibly need. We all, including pooch, had a relaxing stay.”

Pat, August 2019

“Outstanding from the minute of arrival to the sad departure. I only say sad, as we did not want to leave. This cottage is truly out of this world. Immaculately clean with such attention to detail, coupled with the beautiful surroundings makes this a perfect home from home. Having stayed in many pet friendly cottages before I have found that owners don’t provide perfect cleanliness/furnishings and, although I can partly understand this, Blueacres took my breath away for being different from this norm. Set in what can only be described as one of the most beautiful viewpoints in Scotland, this cottage also has a south facing garden which is a dream to sit out in looking across the hills. The sheep and the resident pony are added extras and entertainment. Never before would I have been so sad to leave a lamb which had became my favourite little character. The owners are down to earth, friendly people with very beautiful dogs who all love attention as they come by and visit you at the gate. This cottage is perfectly situated to explore the Scottish Borders, Lanarkshire and beyond as well as providing welcome respite from a busy life. I think I will always return here and I think I left a little bit of my heart in Blueacres. I would love to tell no one about this place and keep it as my hidden gem however I cannot be selfish and highly recommend to anyone who wishes to book. You will not regret it. 10/10.”

“A lovely cottage immaculately clean and beautifully furnished. Very quiet and peaceful. Not a lot to do but perfect for chilling. Welcome gifts very thoughtful.”

Karen, June 2019

“The cottage was absolutely lovely, beautifully sited with super views. Relaxing and restful – just what we needed. The owners, Linda and Jim were friendly, welcoming and helpful – nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was absolutely immaculate and tastefully furnished with comfortable and good quality furnishings. They had paid a great deal of attention to lovely little extras which really helped to make our stay special. Not only will we definitely go back again we would recommend to our friends and family. The cottage was really quiet but with easy access to highlights like the Kelpies, the Falkirk Wheel and New Lanark – all worth a visit.”

Desmond, June 2019

“Absolutely fantastic gorgeous surroundings. Perfect for a couple with dogs. Owner has dogs but they are so gentle and friendly. Would definitely go back whilst there you feel tranquility nothing else matters .”
