Lilliesleaf is a small village that sits in Roxburghshire in the Scottish Borders. There is an 11th century church in the village and Bronze Age settlements have been discovered alongside.

What a nice place to use as a base for discovering the Scottish borders. We stayed for a week in Rose Cottage with the 2 kids and the dog. Whilst this is a cottage, there is still plenty of space to spread out, and relax. Central to loads of local sights and close enough to the arterial roads to go a little further, you'll not go wrong here. With current virus restrictions, the owners keep away, but that's no bad thing - if you need them they are so willing to help, and just reading the visitors book you can see how helpful they are in "normal" circumstances. My only feedback would be that personally I think a shower would be a great addition to Rose Cottage. That said, it won't stop us from coming back (if they'll have us :)). To that end, there's part of me that's loathe to leave this review for that reason: we don't want it to be so popular that we can't book again...

It would have been good to have a shower, however, there was plenty of hot water for the bath.. The bed was really comfortable, usually don't sleep well when I am away but I did this time.

Loved it! Every little detail was thought of- the owners left th way fire in for us and some lights as we got stuck in traffic and didn’t arrive until home midnight, with two young children! Was absolutely perfect, nice quiet and tranquil! Definitely would stay again!

Great place to stay. Kelso, Hawick, Melrose and Galashiels just a drive away. The village of Lilliesleaf is a nice walk for those that like to walk. A short drive for those who don't. Will be returning as it is a lovely place to stay.

Loved the cottage, just what we needed to unwind.. Lovely long walks with the dogs. Nice to see how the owners saved this old building and have brought it back to life.

We were made to feel very welcome.. Mrs Purves was very kind and her father had made a wonderfully warm fire ready for our arrival. The woodland setting was ideal and we really enjoyed our holiday, despite the cold weather.

Rose Cottage was a lovely well equipped cottage owned by people who went out of their way to be friendly.. It was centrally located and easily accessible to many small towns. We will definitely be back.

The location of the cottage is outstanding, really quiet. The area is a great place to relax and our dogs enjoyed running the grounds. A lovely place with great owners.

We would not hesitate in recommending Rose Cottage to anyone looking for somewhere to stay to get away. The cottage has been refurbished recently and they have done such a good job. It's a beautiful cottage with lots of character. You can't beat sitting by the fire with a glass of wine in hand when the rain/snow beats down outside or sitting out the front of the cottage in the sunshine listening to the birds. It was far better than being at home listening to the traffic! We will certainly be looking to rebook when we next come to Scotland and we would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to anyone looking for a getaway.
