- “lovely cottage with scenic water views.”
- “the cottage is located in a tranquil area and has great views of the ocean from the upstairs area. On arrival we were given a basket of goodies and a welcoming card. The owner Margaret who was very friendly and helpful was there to greet us and show us around the cottage. the cottage was very clean and fully equipped with everything you needed. It is a great place to relax and go for walks to the cove and surrounding areas. I recommend visiting the seabird sanctuary which was very interesting.”
- “A great, very wel fitted cottage with a superb view”
- “Just off the A1, the cottage is located in a quiet setting and has a great view on the coastline. The owners are really friendly and left us a welcome package with some basic groceries. Nearly everthing you could think of is available, from barbecue to beach shelter. For everyone who enjoys nature and quiet.”
- “Off the beaten track”
- “When we arrived we received a lovely and personal welcome from one of the owners and a super "Welcome" pack. There were many caring extra thoughts around the cottage such that the holiday was off to a good start from minute one. Very dog friendly and had the great convenience of two showers/WC facilities. The 'upside down' arrangement with downstairs bedrooms and toilet facilities works extremely well. The cottage is remote yet convenient for Dunbar and North Berwick for shopping needs. Walks along the coastal pathway are pleasant as long as the weather is good - we were fortunate and blessed with warm weather. If you don't want to get away from everything, the cottage has a very good broadband facility but mobile phone cover is variable.”
- “Lovely, well equipped cottage in a beautiful location. The views from the upstairs living room are stunning. There are plenty of different walks from the cottage and interesting places to explore a short drive away. Edinburgh is easily reached by train.”
- “Best holiday cottage ever and situated within a beautiful part of Scotland.”

- “Very well equipped and a great location. We had a fab stay.”
- “We enjoyed everything about the property. It contained an exceptionally high standard of essential equipment and was clean and well kept. The reliable WiFi, extra linen and pictures on the wall were thoughtful touches and the owners were warm and friendly. We liked the lay-out of the house (designed to take advantage of the magnificent views of the coast line) and the position of the property, amid glorious walking routes.”
- “The cottage was lovely & was more a home from home than a holiday cottage. The cottage has lots of "nice touches" throughout & the owners have put a lot of thought into the cottage & to what is included in the "let." It was really comfortable, cosy & it was very well situated for lovely walks with the dog. We hope to go back!”
- “The Tack Room catered for every need . Panoramic sea views. Lovely area to explore, beautiful Berwickshire coastline either up into the Lammermuir Hills or easy access to Northumberland and its' castles and fishing villages.”
