The cottage surpassed my expectations. Following a tough time for the family we wanted a break away just to refuel. The decor and amenities were excellent the little touches made it homely. The hi tech kitchen was well resourced everything you would need for a short break or longer stay. We ate in the village pub and bought our wine and bits in the local shop everyone was friendly and welcoming. Back home we put on the log fire and played scrabble. Very chilled.
If I win the lottery this week I will be in touch with an offer.
The cottage is beautifully presented with a fully stocked supply of toiletries, cleaning products and kitchen food essentials. The conservatory is very comfortable on a sunny day to relax and read a book or have a glass of wine. In colder weather the living room wood burner soon has the room cosy for the evening. The village shop was well stocked which was handy. There is a beach and Priory close by in Coldingham. The local pub looked nice although we didn't go in. St Abbs Head is only a short drive away. There are three walking routes either along the cliffs, out to a lighthouse or round a loch. They can all be combined and give spectacular views. The small fishing village with its harbour is wort a visit. If you enjoy a rural location and are happy to make your own entertainment I could recommend this as a short stay location.
Just spent 2 nights in the cottage with my wife for my birthday. Excellent 10 out of 10.nice touches all over radios ect.class
My wife is fanatically clean and it's always going to be a good holiday when she announces 'this place is spotless' 5 mins after walking through the door'. It was and it was very well equipped.
We have stayed in several cottages throughout Scotland, mainly on the West Coast, this was the best equipped.
Mind you we didn't really do anything other than make toast, cook a pizza and open bottles of beer and wine. But if we wanted to we would have had no problem cooking up anything we fancied.
I would thoroughly recommend this cottage and the area. Coldingham is a quaint little village, with a small well stocked shop, with a cash machine, £1.85 fee, plus two pubs that sell food.
St Abbas is a nice little harbour village, not so keen on Eyemouth, but it seemed you would have plenty of choice for restaurant there.
Pleanty walking routes are available on costal paths, but as it was Easter and either snowing or raining, we preferred to take a short walk to the pubs, or an even shorter walk to the fridge for booze and keep cosy in this lovely cottage.
Fantastic cottage rental. Everything you need, all facilities, spotless and beautifully furnished. Location is ideal for walks and exploring. Two village pubs and a spar convenience store. Wood burning stove for cold Scottish evenings. Nice wee patio area is the weather is good.
