“I think though that the best of all is the fact that after six previous visits to the Innerleithen area, we have found the house that we want to come back to. See you again next year.”

Click on the image to see just a few of the comments from our guest book and emails… We’ve had lovely 5* reviews on Trip Advisor too! You can see anonymised photos from our guest book here Cosaig has been open since May 2013, and we have had families, couples and small groups of friends to stay…some for short breaks some for a fortnight’s holiday.

We’ve had a great weekend and the cottage is lovely….look forward to returning in the near future. We were able to fit all 6 bikes in the shed which was very handy. The wet room…. everyone commented how good it was and the shower in there was awesome. We were also very impressed with the array of equipment in the kitchen. In regards to doing anything differently I honestly can’t think of any” MW and 5 mountain biking friends (via email)

“Fantastic cottage, well equipped. We loved the food treats especially the apple juice and flapjacks. Thank you for a lovely stay” NH (family of 5)

We will certainly recommend you to family and friends on our return home. Thank you Jennifer. A truly great stay.” WP,HP and children 14 and 10

“The cottage came highly recommended to us, but still managed to exceed our expectations. So much thought has gone into making your guests feel welcome and the little touches around the place made our stay even more special. We will definitely be returning to Cosaig. PS: The flapjacks were amazing!!” CO and family (children 6 and 9)

Thank you for your little touches which made the cottage feel like a home away from home. Great weather and enjoyed seeing Murray win Wimbledon!” (wish we could take credit for the last bit too!) JP (4 adults and a baby)

“A really nice house house to stay in everything about it so nice. The welcome pack was great the flapjacks to die for. The thought that has gone into everything (even the dog) makes it home from home. I think though that the best of all is the fact that after six previous visits to the Innerleithen area, we have found the house that we want to come back to. See you again next year. Thank you” KJ and JJ and dog

AND PLENTY room in the wet room (no cubicle, no steps), for large lady shower chair HOIST (manual – Oxford )- and 3x carers with space to spare.

“A proper home from home. Lovely comfy beds and everything you could possibly need. Had a really relaxing time. Thank you so much” JCC (father and daughter)

I won this cottage at the Jaymart Festival, and gave it to 2 people with learning disabilities who like biking. These two people had such a good time doing things that they would not normally get the chance to do. We rode Glentress for 2 days, then chilled back here afterwards. The cottage was fantastic and you deserve a big thank you for donating it as a prize ( hope Jamie Mart liked what it was used for as she looks down) as 2 people got the chance to go mountain biking. So thank you very much.” GM (party of 4 adults)

“Perfect few days to re-charge the batteries. Cottage really comfy with everything you could possibly need. Saffron Indian restaurant is almost like an extension and worth a visit as is County Inn at Peebles. New walk along the river and old railway line is brilliant for dog walking. We look forward to returning” LS, NS, JW and dog (guest needing level access)

“The six of us have had a fab holiday at Cosaig. The welcome pack with vegan friendly goodies and doggy treats was much appreciated. Lots of great info provided re local walks of which we enjoyed several and didn’t need to use the car once! Smail’s printers also well worth a visit. Dogs appreciated blankets provided to allow them up on to the sofas, nice to have the warm fire, liked the elephant themed decor and the wet room, well equipped kitchen, garden handy for dogs. All in all a lovely place – we’ll certainly recommend and hope to be back ourselves.” J Family and greys!

“Wow! What a lovely cottage.

The cottage was the perfect, homeliest retreat when we weren’t running up hills or wading through streams on Saturday night, and the elegant little touches were so appreciated – the warm note on arrival, the local beer, the astounding flapjacks & the fact that we felt we had everything we needed. Thank you. We’ll be back!” 6 runners (2 were returning guests)
