Firstly I would like to say how sorry we are to hear of your loss. Having lost both of my own parents I understand how you will feel.
Regarding your booking for the cottage. You booked the cottage through Holiday Lettings/Tripadvisor so surely your concerns should have been directed at them.
When we have private bookings we can deal with customers directly but when the booking is made with a third party you are bound by their booking conditions. Holiday Lettings have strict cancellation policies and do not give refunds on bookings cancelled later than 4 weeks prior to arrival. Sadly this does not take into consideration your very sad circumstances. That is when travel insurance comes into play.
As I said before if it had been a private booking then we would have been able to help in some way.

“lots to commend this cottage but”
Reviewed September 18, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This cottage is very clean and comfortable but we would have expected that either the table in the kitchen or the one in the living room would have had space for 4 chairs, after all self catering means self catering. The oven gives off noxious fumes when one has cooked a simple meal and I would have hoped for the provision of more than 4 teaspoons for a family of four. The juggling of the remote controls to work the tv beggars belief. The owner who lives next door is very helpful on this score. The views from the back windows over to Coldingham Bay are superb .There is a safe mostly enclosed garden but the cottage is very close to a busy road so supervision is required if children are playing out.. We were surprised to find that all the leaflets about nearby attractions were from 2014 .We left our more up to date ones for anyone following us. Cetainly overall a very pleasant cottage for a week's holiday..

Thank you for your review.
In response to your comments, there are a total of 8 teaspoons in the two drawers which we will now increase to 12 . The table in the lounge is a drop leaf table that when extended seats 4 to 6 comfortable. There are 5 seats provided (4 in the lounge and 1 in the bedroom.
There are two remotes for the TV and satellite box . One does the TV and the other the satellite. The TV one is only used for switching it on the TV and then the other does all the other functions. They are very simple to operate especially with the instructions provided.
As for the comment on the oven, if there was a smell it would be caused by a spillage of your own making . We have the oven spotless for every new arrival.
The oven when you left was beyond belief and took over an hour to get back to our high standard. It is no wonder it was giving off a smell.
The pans etc had to be all re-washed as well.
The leaflets that are in the cottage are all left by previous guests and only provide information that is dateless but we will update where necessary .

“Spacious warm and comfortable”
Reviewed September 16, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Spacious warm and comfortable, this is one of the best holiday rentals we have stayed in. We were blessed with good weather and the views over the fields to the sea were lovely from the back of the property and the back garden, we even ate our breakfast out in the garden one morning! Well equiped kitchen, comfortable beds, heated towel rails and a socket next to a mirror for hair drying! These things all make a difference.
This cottage is also very well situated for walking north and south along the coast without having to use the car and Coldingham Bay is a lovely spot.
Easy to book and contact via email, the owners live next to the property and give a warm welcome.

Spent a very pleasant 4 days in this well equiped and very comfortable cottage. Lovely view from the spacious back garden. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. One of our party had mobility problems and found the access easy to manage.

“Templehall Cottage”
Reviewed September 1, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Have taken cottage breaks before but this one ticks all the boxes. A lovely compact cottage with everything needed to have a nice quiet break. the living room and bedrooms were really comfortable while the kitchen area was perfect for our use.The back outside area was large fully lawned ideal for children and the views were perfect.The cottage is in an ideal place for walkers or cyclists ,a short run down the hill and you are in coldingham a village with all you will need, a store, pubs, and restraunts. Coldingham has its own small beach with all the amenities a family would need for a day out.The cottage is good forI its closeness to Eyemouth or St. Abbs both worth visiting. In all a very comfortable cottage..
