Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Comfortable cottage in a beautifully quiet location with plenty of dog walks available locally. Nov 2011.
  2. This accommodation was very remote but just what was needed after a very stressful few months. My friend and I had need of complete rest and this was ideal. As long as you have a car you are within easy reach of the coast - Dunbar, Eyemouth and Berwick on Tweed etc. Oct 2011.
  3. Peaceful location. Cottage spacious with secure garden for dogs/children. lovely beaches nearby. Suits best those who simply want to relax, walk, recouperate and recharge batteries! Oct 2011.
  4. The property is in a peacefull setting with wild life right on your doorstep. The one disadvantage with this property is the fact that the beds are really low to the ground, which might be a disadvantage for the elderly or disabled. June 2011.
  5. Very Ikea and the main bedroom faces east so great if you are an early riser! Relaxing views from the sun lounge, and enjoyed the "resident" wheatear, oystercatcher, pheasants and goldfinches. Nice walks from the house and easy access to the coast. Good quiet retreat. May 2011.
  6. Set in a quiet, rural location this cottage met our every need during our holiday. 4 adults were accommodated comfortably, the kitchen was well-equipped and the grounds were extremely well-maintained. Wildlife was plentiful in the area, and lots of short and longer walks from the house made for a relaxing stay. May 2011.
  7. Pictures did not do it justice! Very good accommodation, especially size of enclosed, safe garden. Comfortable settees in living room added to overall satisfaction. Hope to visit again. Nov 2010.
  8. Well equipped and very spacious. Aug 2010.
  9. Spacious large layout, built in wardrobes. July 2010.
