  • "Beautiful cozy cottage, easy to find, great instructions."

    Absolutely beautiful decoration, like someones home rather than a holiday let. Very, very well equipped with everything you might need. Very warm and light. Situated on a farm with residents next door who were there if needed.

    The hair straighteners and coffee machine were an extra bonus and there were even doggy biscuits and towels. The owners were very welcoming and easy to contact if we needed them.

    The cottage is tastefully furnished and fully equipped. Barry and Elizabeth the owners who live next door were friendly and helpful but not intrusive. The garden is fully enclosed so great for our 2 dogs. Plenty of walks in the area and beautiful beaches. We fully recommend this accommodation and will definitely be back in the future.

    It states that there is a sea view but we could not see one The cottage is lovely but it is quite remote you do need transport you can not just walk anywhere especially if you have a dog Overall the place is very relaxing clean and tidy just disappointing that I could not walk my dog from the cottage

    I don't quite understand the comment about not being able to walk your dog from the cottage. We walk our dog up and down the farm road and on West Loch Road, which is very quiet, as do most of our guests. There is also the enclosed garden area where the dog can run free. I don't think the cottage could be called remote, as it's 1.2 miles from the centre of Coldingham. There is a sea view from the front door/corridor. I hope this fully addresses the points raised.

    Clean & well equipped, with lots of original artwork & ceramics ,& beautifully decorated.Lots of animals around& we even saw a badger one night. Coldingham itself is a nice base, has 2 pubs & a take away, with a lovely sandy bay. Lots of walks in the area & we travelled up to the North Berwick coast too, also inland to Kelso for Floors castle, Abbeyford (Sir Walter Scott's house) & to Haddington for Lennoxlove House ( booking essential )There is also lots to visit on the Northumberland coast within easy reach ( we had stayed there the previous week) so enough to occupy you for a fortnight at least! Or for a few days break to chill out, as it is very soothing staying here.

All the entertainment worked perfectly - Sky, TV, Bluetooth speaker, and clear and comprehensive instructions for their use were supplied. Private garden at the back with views over the rolling countryside from a sheltered table and chairs, ideal for breakfast outside or a place to sit of an evening. A very peaceful and tranquil place!

Attached to the owner's home set on their idyllic working farm, this quaint ground-floor abode offers a romantic retreat for a couple seeking the fresh, northern air of Scotland.

Spend a bright afternoon walking along the rugged coast, and come home to a warm, inviting sitting room, heated by an eco-friendly biomass heater and solar panels, you can settle down on the vibrant sofa and rest your legs.

Enjoy the splendid decor that pops with colour, with rustic touches like the decorative woodburning stove adding a certain homeliness, and spend a quiet evening watching a film on the TV.

Step into the beautifully-fitted kitchen, home to an electric oven and hob, along with a slimline dishwasher, and rustle up some favourite go-to recipes, or prepare a picnic for a day in the outdoors.

Spend time outside in the delightful garden and look out to the sea beyond while you sip a refreshing beverage as the sun sets.

Find a lovely sleeping spot in the bedroom which hosts a king-size bed, with a shower room next door providing a delightful space to freshen up.

Head down to Coldingham Bay, a popular spot in the local area for a beach day with a stretch of around 1km of clean sands, with low tide exposing the lively rockpools swarming with marine life, while the beach café offers the perfect spot for a refreshment.

Enjoy walks along the rugged coastline, or travel down to the bustling town of Berwick-upon-Tweed for a wonderful day out with riverside strolls, walks along the Elizabethan Walls, and Berwick's museums including Berwick Barracks and The Main Guard, as well as Berwick's Town Hall.
