Our Guest Book

  • Alan and Sheilas' home is a great place to base a Borders holiday from. The house and gardens are beautifully kept and everything in it is finished to a very high standard. We were completely bowled over by the the treats left for us and all we needed was available to make our stay extremely comfortable. Innerleithen and the surrounding areas have plenty going on and as close as 2 minutes from the house there are walks where wild deer roam and also St Ronans Wells with a visitor centre and very knowledgeable staff. Great food and drink and very friendly locals. We walked along the river tweed (but not all 97 miles of it) and also visited Peebles, Galashiels, Musselburgh and the mighty Edinburgh. We had sunshine and the odd shower and a rainbow or two. We can definitely recommend staying at Alan and Sheilas, it was a great week. Thanks to you both. Kaz and Chris.

  • A lovely home in a beautiful area

    This was our first time in Scotland and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Innerleithen. Although we didn‘t meet Sheila and Alan they made us very welcome and we felt right at home at their place. Their house and the garden are beautiful and the view from their lovely little conservatory is amazing. Sitting there relaxing after a long day of sightseeing was the best part of the day. We couldn‘t have wished for anything more. Innerleithen and nearby Peebles are quiet little villages with lots of possibilities for bike rides or walks and nice restaurants and coffee shops. We had a great time! Thank you!

  • Our stay in Innerleithen was absolutely fanta

    The house of Sheila and Alan is spacious, cosy and very comfortable, and it has a beautiful and quiet garden. The location is moreover perfect for all nature and culture lovers. Close to different hiking paths and close to Edinburgh and other beautiful little towns in the neighbourhood. Peebles was our favourite. There we found a very nice coffee stop ( the cacao Black) with the most delicious cakes and tarts. And lovely gift shops and and adorable bookstore. We had really a great time. On top of that, Sheila and Alan are fantastic hosts, extremely welcoming, thoughtful and considerate. We felt home immediately. Thanks for everything Sheila and Alan!
