Since we were there last year, a new kitchen has been fitted. The amenities in the surrounding area are brilliant, butchers, veggie/wet fish shop. Bakery, chemist, Co-op, several cafes & some excellent bar/restaurants. It is perfect for a family to stay, although the internet can be intermittent/non existent some days & parking is a bit of a nightmare now The Beild (no 2) is up & running, sleeping 8 people. They had 3 cars. Unfortunately, it is no longer suitable for us as we are older now & use walking sticks so, going up & down stairs to use the kitchen & bathroom was very awkward & tiring throughout the day. Thank you for your feedback especially on the new Kitchen. I am so sorry that your mobility issues mean that you can not stay with us again. I hope you find ground level accommodation. With regard to the parking at the Bield, the guests staying where asked twice to park by the Bield windows where there is parking for 2 cars, they did not do this for the week that they were there. We are in contact with the Bield owners to make sure their guests know where to park. The Bield has been open for over 2 years and I note that last year this was not an issue for you. I am sorry if it caused you any issues but we did ask them twice to move. Thank you for staying with us, we appreciated your custom.

Comfortable, well-equipped, convenient and quiet even on a Saturday night, even though very central. I loved being a few yards from the beach and being able to hear the sea lapping all night. Very cosy living room and the big dining room table was excellent for working at (it wasn’t purely a holiday week this time). The owners left a generous welcome basket of local bread - delicious - red wine, a cake and a pint of milk in the fridge and they stopped by the second day to see that everything was ok. Parking immediately in front of the cottage. Extremely comfortable double beds made for good nights’ sleep. Electric shower was a bit feeble but they tend to be. Supply of dog blankets, bowl, sheets for furniture etc was inspired: we don’t have a dog but it gave us a handy coming-in-from-the-beach towel. Lovely area to explore, esp walking across to Coldingham Sands. Brilliant holiday place all round. Reviewed by Rhiannon5.0★May 2022 "A beautiful well kept cottage in a beautiful part of Scotland."

It was very comfortable, clean and warm. The facilities provided were excellent. It was very well situated, just a couple of minutes walk to the beach and coastal walks, also for the town amenities.

The first floor kitchen is well equipped and has a handy breakfast table and chairs. Three first floor bedrooms and a family bathroom complete this pretty little cottage.

As well as the sandy beach, there's also a good selection of cafes, shops and bars. Days out along this rugged coastline are varied and endless, visitors can enjoy coast path walks, watch the days haul being landed, play a round of golf or explore the nearby castles of this Heritage Coastline. A perfect cottage from which to explore this lovely part of the country. Please note this property is a Saturday changeover only.
