4 star self-catering farm cottages near the coast in the Scottish Borders

A Warm Welcome

A warm welcome is waiting for you at Press Mains. A family-run working farm, we aim to provide our guests with a home-from-home from which to explore the many attractions of this coastal part of the Scottish Borders.

Open all year round, our 4 star self-catering farm cottages are well-equipped and comfortably furnished with stunning views across a secluded wooded valley. Inside the cottages are cosy and welcoming. They are heated by our biomass heating system and all have wood-burning stoves or an open fire. Outside, each cottage has a private garden making them ideal for dogs and children or for those who simply wish to listen to the birds and enjoy the peaceful rural setting.

Location

There is a vast choice of things to do and see in the area. From the dramatic coastal scenery of St Abbs and Coldingham, to the historic walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, all are within a fifteen minute drive. With good access to major road links, guests can also easily explore Edinburgh to the north or Alnwick to the south, and all the attractions of the wider Scottish Borders and North Northumberland.

Dog Friendly

Press Mains is an 1,350 acre arable farm which is interspersed by many miles of hard tracks. There are ponds, rivers and woodlands, grass fields and undulating hills. With an abundance of wild life and bird life it is the perfect place for nature lovers to explore and enjoy. We are completely dog friendly and always encourage our guests to explore. All we ask is that dogs are kept on leads near livestock

Extras

There is an on-site games room for rainy days which, although fairly basic, does have a pool table, table football, table tennis and a darts board to keep the energetic entertained in bad weather.

Above all, we want our guests to feel at home and we always aim to go the extra mile to help make every holiday perfect. There is High Speed broadband in every cottage and free logs for the wood-burning stoves. Guests are welcome to walk over the farm and we can provide everything from dog cages and high chairs to secure storage for bicycles and diving equipment. Sheets and towels are provided and there is easy parking just a few yards from your door. We are always on hand to help and happy to discuss any additional requirements.

Recent Testimonials

I stayed in The Bothy. It is an open plan livingroom/ bedroom with kitchen off and separate bathroom. It has a large private garden at the back and lovely views over the fields to the front. I found everything I needed was provided plus extras. Even though I was there in the middle of harvest ,with combining going on I found it so relaxing I didn't really want to explore far afield. There are lovely walks on the farm . If you do go out and about there are lots of places nearby to eat and explore.
Lovely to be on a proper farm with plenty of space to walk the dogs. We knew spring had arrived when we drove up and saw daffodils in the garden and lambs in the field! We even had eggs fresh from the hens. An excellent base for the Scottish coast, North Northumberland and Edinburgh. Many thanks for a lovely time.
Thank you for such a lovely holiday. We have just left. We will be back - we can't rate your cottage, location and the hospitality shown from everybody highly enough.

We are booking to come back! We had such a fantastic week with you all those months ago before Lockdown. It was great for us to get the two families together - but also apart! - and the children have talked about how much fun they had in the games room when it was cold and wet outside. We are counting the days til we come back!

The Cottage far exceeded our expectations and is definitely worth a visit, set in beautiful and peaceful surroundings , just what we needed for a short break away after a busy festive period, we will definitely return.
Well you said you were dog friendly and you are! Dog bowl and biscuits in a jar in the kitchen and miles and miles of fantastic walking. Our two had the most amazing time and so did we. We will be back!
