  • "Fantastic cottage in a beautiful location overlooking the sea."

    Very comfortable and well equipped. We went on lovely coastal walks and a day in Edinburgh which was easy to reach by car. We took three girls and the dog who all really enjoyed the days out and loved getting back to the cottage and watching the brilliant selection of dvds. Would recommend this lovely cottage to anyone.

  • "Superb property "home from home"."

    The best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in. Amazing welcome pack! The owners have thought of everything! One possible improvement would be extra cutlery and dishes so as not to have to use the dish washer before it is full.

    It was in an excellent location with fantastic views and easy access to excellent coastal and country walks. There were great public transport links from the nearby village of Cockburnspath which meant you could leave the car. It was a tranquil setting that made for a perfect holiday.

  • "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!
