      A wonderful and uplifting place to stay. A good distance from hustle and bustle, nature and a wood-burning stove to curl up in front of at the end of the day. A place to read, reflect, walk and enjoy life together. Not far from Hawick, the Summer House offers all of that and more.

      This is one of our favourite holiday. Everything was just perfect if you're looking for a quiet and peaceful place away from the city noise. The summerhouse was clean and everything you need is provided in the house. From appliance instructions, maps and brochures cutleries and all. All beds were fresh comfy and made up nicely. In the living room was a stunning view of the lake and you could watch the swan all day long. We're lucky to have a nice weather so we're able to watch a perfect sunrise. Plenty of walks around the area. Thanks Katherine for such a great host and Geoff who's so nice and just a call away around the area.
    Looking forward to go back xx

      We stayed at Summerhouse for two weeks over Christmas and New Years and can’t recommend it enough. Lovely spacious house with everything you need in it, clean, and the grounds…wow! If you enjoy walking theirs plenty of tracks to follow to woodland, moorland etc. We have two labradors so being able to bring them with us was amazing!

    I can’t recommend it enough, a perfect getaway. Thank you
