  • "A very, well equipped, dog friendly cottage."

    Coldingham is a lovely, welcoming village in the Scottish Borders. With one proper pub, another that does food, and two caravan parks (don't be put off) which both serve food and have up to date bars, there are plenty of places to keep you entertained at night. Coldingham beach, which is beautiful and gives you access to the coastal path is only a 10 minute walk along a safe path. Overall the cottage was perfect for dog owners, as is the location. I would recommend.

    Lovely cottage with well equipped kitchen. Everything clean & comfortable. Very pleased with the way cottage is presented. Decorated for Christmas. Love the area for going for walks. Beach walks on your doorstep or short car ride away. Dog friendly We had a great holiday with our dog. Highly recommend this cottage.

  • "We all loved the cottage, it was as described in the ad."

    The house was warm and cosy, possibly the best stock kitchen for essential items I've ever rented. We would all use the house again if returning to that part of Scotland.

  • "Very well maintained and cared for cottage."

    Everything required was available to make it home from home. Location is excellent along with the parking facilities. The only difficulty for us was the wooden steps and flooring. We have a retired greyhound with very long legs which don’t work on smooth wooden floors. The extra strip of mat in the kitchen was very useful! A wonderful stay in a delightful cottage.

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location."

    Everything you need for a great stay. We had 4 adults staying and there was plenty of room. Coldingham is a lovely village and the cottage is right in the centre, couple of minutes walk to both pubs and the Priory and twenty minute walk to the beach. Would highly recommend this and will look to stay here again when next visit this area.

  • "We found the description was spot on."

    Plenty of space, clean, comfortable and all the equipment needed. There was good amount of parking space. If I had any suggestion to make it would be exceptionally handy to have a small hand rail between the lounge and the kitchen for the older generation, but that is only a suggestion.

  • "Great stay and really nice property in a nice village with great walks and other towns to visit."

    Sofas in the lounge are not as comfy as we would have liked and the slope in the garden tends to limit its use as a garden. But as a property, village and surrounding area in general it ticks most of the boxes and gave us a really enjoyable holiday.

The photo of the veranda at the back was misleading, it's tiny .

  • "A light, airy and comfortable cottage with the best equipped kitchen we have come across in a holiday let."

    The furniture was all of decent quality and comfortable A couple of small additions would be good, namely a fireguard in the sitting room, for the log burner, and a few coat hooks near the back and front doors for outdoor clothes and dog leads. The only thing to be aware of would be for owners of older/arthritic dogs, as the laminate flooring is a bit of a doggy skid-pan. We took a few carpet runners with us for peace of mind. Nevertheless we had a very enjoyable week in a lovely village cottage.

  • "Really lovely little cottage with everything you need and more."

    Very clean with a great welcome pack. Just a note for potential visitors, the two double beds are very low down, so some may struggle to get in and out of them. The garden is very steep with steps so not practical for older dogs but was fine for ours. We didn't use the garden as we were out walking everyday. A great place to stay if you want to get away from the rat race and get some fresh sea air.

    We personally thought the beds were very low with very soft mattresses, and the sofas were a little soft as well. - Neither spoiled the week away though. We would recommend the Italian Ice cream and chip shop (combined !) in Eyemouth and The Contented Sole pub which has great fish on the menu. Beaches at St Abbs, Coldingham and working port at Eyemouth are all beautiful. Holy Isle worth a visit as well.

The property

Down a quiet street in the village of Coldingham lies 7 Bogan, a terrace cottage in the Scottish Borders, bursting with character and well presented after an extensive renovation.

Just under two miles from the beach, and with several local amenities, you can enjoy the breath-taking countryside and open spaces whilst still having the essentials close by, so it is perfect for families or a walking group.

On entering the property, you will find yourself at the bottom of the stairs, and to your right there is a good-sized ground-floor double, with ample storage space and a window looking out to the tranquil street.

Turn around and go further into the property to take advantage of the cosy sitting room, which not only has plush leather sofas, but in the centre there lies a woodburning stove, ready to warm you up on a chilly winter's night, or maybe a summers eve after the sun has gone down.

The splendid fitted kitchen/diner provides an inviting place to sit and relax as a meal is prepared and the events of the day are talked over with friends, with the added benefit of a utility room and a ground-floor bathroom.

Climb the stairs and discover the final two bedrooms; a double and a single which are joined on by an ample bathroom containing a gorgeous freestanding bath and separate shower.

Perfect for enjoying the summer months, outside there is a patio area where you can sit, or why not put a blanket down on the grass, and take in the fresh air?

A leisurely stroll from the property will bring you to Coldingham Bay, the 'Keep Scotland Beautiful' award-winning sandy beach on Berwickshire's rocky coast, which is sheltered by headlands to the north and south and is popular with surfers and body boarders.

Further out in the nearby towns you can find a plethora of days out and activities to choose from, like Berwick-upon-Tweed which is home to Chain Bridge Honey Farm established to allow the public to discover first-hand the extraordinary tale of bees and honey, with the observation hive giving you the chance to view a living colony of bees behind glass!

For those a little more adventurous, you have to travel over to St Abbs, just a couple of miles from Coldingham, where it is considered to be a World Top Ten diving centre and is world-renowned, with superb walks over the St Abbs nature reserve there is surely something for everyone.

An attractive property like 7 Bogan ensures you will have a delightful time exploring the Scottish Borders, making new memories in this lovely part of the world.
