Everything about our stay in Neidpath Castle was wonderful and felt special. The person who welcomed us and showed us around was great and informative about the building. Delicious breakfast in the fridge, plenty of logs for the fire which we lit to complete the beauty of the Sitting Room. We loved the ‘left decoration’ allowing the wonderful patination to show on the walls and the wall of cupboards. The views are stunning from every window, amazing and interesting tapestries. An extraordinary place to be on our own with our Labrador who seemed to enjoy being there as much as us. Thank you...more
We just loved the Tower castle. Quirky, peaceful, well equipped and enough stairs to drop a few pounds of weight over the week. We loved our fires, although if lit for any time you began to feel like a smoked kipper. Lovely walks just outside the door. And for the brave... a river to swim in. Katarina kindly gave us a tour of Neidpath Castle and was generous with her time, friendly and helpful.
We had a lovely stay at Barns Bothy. There was everything we needed. The surrounding area in the Tweed Valley is beautiful and a stroll through the grounds was just perfect. My only little gripe was that the taps on the bathroom sink were almost impossible to turn off completely. Comfortable, relaxing and tranquil.
Tucked away on the Neidpath Estate, Barns Library is a delight. Just back from a 3 night stay, the only disappointment was having to leave. Top notch quality, loved the unexpected essentials in the fridge, the bedrooms and bathrooms were immaculate and super comfortable, and the books! Well, you really need a fortnight to properly enjoy them. Loved the variety. Beautiful grounds for dog walking, Lara loved the walled garden for a run about. I've been in many a rental and this is up there at the top. Towels, toiletries, logs a plenty. We were very impressed.Thanks, Lulu, a fabulous hostess. Hop...more
We had a fabulous holiday at Neidpath Castle and Barns Library - we couldn't have asked for more. Beautiful accommodation, perfect settings, lovely friendly people. Lulu gave us a tour of the castle which was fascinating and we had supper in the castle one evening which was a wonderful experience. Our group ages ranged from 22 to 82 and no-one wanted to leave!
