A lovely relaxing week spent at Birkhill Cottage, felt immediately at home after a long long journey. The sunshine beams though the kitchen of a morning, so breakfast is a treat, especially if nip into Lauder and bring back freshly baked bread/ fruit scones (Firebrick Bakery). The sitting room is airy but with a cosy feel, a log burner for colder nights, but the residual warmth from the conservatory was enough for us. We were up from Hampshire for specialist vet treatment at Greenside, St Boswells so wasn't able to take advantage of it's great location and surrounding countryside. Next time, we hope to meet up with family and friends in Edinburgh and further afield, but equally, given our restrictions on this visit, our four pawed pals could be walked from the doorstep along the quiet lanes. Thank you Lara - see you again in October.
